In the Reddit thread, the OP listed several things that they said were great to see on Deadliest Catch. They mentioned that there is a “trove of unseen footage” that they can release one day. One example is that they thought there would be “videos of Todd Stanley filming Phil Harris until his death,”

They also talked about quite a few things they discovered thanks to the anniversary special. The OP said it looks like Sig quit smoking. They were also impressed with Bill boating while undergoing prostate cancer treatment. The poster also sounded surprised to hear that two people went overboard from the Northwestern.

On the bad side, they mentioned that they were shocked that no one had sued Keith yet, thanks to his “volatile and physically aggressive” personality. They also said they wished the anniversary episode had brought back more people from the past, but they guessed it would cause them to discuss things they wanted to stay buried.

They finished up by saying that there was enough for two hours, and they wished that were the case.
