Crabbers go hunting for sea monsters...

nessieIn what seems like a personal desire to make sure that they kills off every single crab fisherman they  can fix a camera on to, the good folks behind The Deadliest Catch have decided to send brothers Jonathan and Andy Hillstrand off on a dangerous adventure tracking down a different kind of deadly catch…

The “isn’t supposed to exist” kind…

Tdead-cathe Hillstrands are being sent out on a quest to find a regional sea serpent called Caddy that supposedly dwells in the cold waters along the coast of British Columbia. Some people believe the beast to be a relic of the dinosaur age, and that it possesses a head like a sheep, a horse or a camel, with large, front-facing eyes and possibly small ears or horns.

Check out this trailer for the upcoming special  (the footage featuring the sea monster in question begins at about the :35 second mark)…

Nothing- and I mean nothing- gets people’s panties all up in bunch quite like the rumors of a sea monster…

Not sure why exactly…

Perhaps it is the romanticism surrounding the legendary creatures… perhaps it’s like a belief in alien life and Bigfoots; the offspring of a deep seeded human desire for unknown and adventure… or perhaps it’s the reality (which Hollywood has never feared in making sure was reinforced in all of us as often as possible…) in which the only place in the world where real life monsters can exist is in the uncharted depths of the world’s oceans.

But whatever it is, there is no denying…

Of all the bullshit things people think they see out there nothing gets the imagination going quite like a sea monster sighting.

That said, this story is little more than the bullshit people think they are seeing (as opposed to the real strangeness all around each of us all the time)…

Checking out the 2009 video which got this whole ball rolling in the minds of the brothers, you can clearly see that there is something there, but there is not much at all to the Hillstrands’ wacky redneckified hunt for the mythical beast that the video inspires.

caddy-toonOozing with made for TV moments, the show reeks of just another “Monster hunt” show (like those assholes who just got snagged faking their Bigfoot show, those guys who think they can see ghosts, those who search for aliens, ect, ect…) that rarely does more than piss off the core fan base they would have been counting on in order to survive (thus killing the show off in usually spectacular fashion…).

Which is a shame cause this one might have been the one time where there is a chance of finding something other than some asshole having way too much fun with some water noodles and some 16 mm film…

Of all the places on Earth where a monster could hide, I am pretty sure we all kind of believe that the best chance of getting along without humanity ever really knowing for sure they had encountered something would be found in the ocean’s vast depths.

It would make sense to learn that a prehistoric ocean monster managed to survive the ages deep within isolated parts of the ocean as opposed to some lake in Europe or in the darkest parts of sub-Saharan Africa.

But instead of someone seriously taking a look at the area to see if there is anything going on out there, we are sending out the two less drunk captains from a popular reality show to go and “search” for whatever it is they are looking for (which is ratings first and foremost…) and “bring it home” (which something tells me they won’t even be close in doing…).
