Discovery & Deadliest Catch milking Phil Harris death

Anyone else pissed off how Discovery and Deadliest Catch is milking Phil Harris death?

Last Tue he had the stroke, then it was suppose to be the finaly ending today, but no, they give you 3 mins of the stroke drama and say tune in next week for more.

When we all know the ending, he dead and gone, fish bait.

But they are gonna drag it out n milk it for ever penny they can, which is beyond wrong.

Contact Coors and tell them you won't be buying their product as they are the main sponsor for this milk fest.
AND PASS THIS INFO AROUND LIKE A VIRUS.

Dude, seriously? Phil was one of the main characters on the show. He asked that they continue filming even after he had had his stroke. I don't see that as milking anything.

<--Tips back a Coors for Phil.

He asked them to film it for closure, not to only show 3min of it during each show to milk viewership out for several months when hes already gone.

That is not what he ask them to do.


They are already even airing the new show, after the deadliest catch.

That isn't closure, thats a milk fest for ratings and pure greed.

Phil did not ask them to film his death for that.

We all know he's dead so what exactly are they milking? They could only milk it if we didn't know what happened. I find it sad to watch him this season knowing he's gone. I saved a copy of the Boston Herald that wrote about his passing. He was a good man and frankly every show he's in is another royalty that gets paid to his family. They are just doing the show as they always have. Don't forget poor Jake also. To this day I don't think they know what happened to him.

Background

The stroke to death footage is being milked.
With a 3 min tease of what happened at the end of each hr show, saying tune in next week to know what happened.

Like some Saturday afternoon kids action show, but its for viewership and greed, which Coors is funding.

done it twice now and will do it 6 mores times for a total of 8 teaser episodes. Its already planned.

Phil was really into Corvettes. Here is a good article, with pics, about his past and present cars.

I met Phil and Sig at a Nascar race a few years ago in Charlotte. They seemed overwhelmed by the number of people who knew of them and wanted to talk to them, very humble about their celebrity.

RIP Captain Phil.
