RIP.

Folks, the DC is the only show on right now that I try to watch on a regular basis and it is hard to say goodbye to capt Harris (those guys are nuts)


(EW.com) -- The Discovery Channel announced today that it will air a series of specials that'll pay tribute to Captain Phil Harris, the beloved star of "Deadliest Catch" who died February 9 after suffering a stroke while off-loading his crab fishing vessel Cornelia Marie in Alaska.

The show will begin addressing the captain's death on June 22 while the July 13 episode "After the Catch" will include a tribute to Harris. Additionally, "Deadliest Catch: Captain Phil Harris Remembered" will bow July 20 and feature one-on-one interviews with fellow captains and Phil's sons, Josh and Jake.

"Captain Phil was a father, fisherman, funny man and, most importantly for fans worldwide, a friend. We celebrate his life and all those he has touched through "Deadliest Catch,'" said Clark Bunting, President and General Manager of Discovery Channel and Science Channel, in a statement. "I wish this would never have been a storyline of the series, but I am proud of the heart and emotion we have worked so hard to put into these very special episodes as a tribute to Phil."

Very sad to hear the news. His boys have a lot to be proud of. I love the series and thought if anyone deserves their pay it was these guys. Give me the front line every time.

I too enjoy the show, and was impressed by the work he did. He really did live large, and did something few others could do. I celebrate the man, his life was rich and full of adventure, he earned the respect of many. I trust he is fishing with God now.
