The Hillstrand Brothers

Exclusive: 'Deadliest Catch' has enthralled millions not just because of the crab fishing that takes place, but due to the overwhelmingly lovable crew members the hit Discovery show documents. PopEater had the opportunity to sit down with Jonathan and Andy Hillstrand, captains of the Time Bandit, at City Crab in New York City to discuss what to expect this season (which premiered April 13) and just how the death of fellow captain Phil Harris impacted them. "Even though he's only five or six years older than us, it's like we lost our dad," Andy Hillstrand tells PopEater. After the jump, the full interview, including more on the passing of Harris, the prospect of retiring and how Jonathan once insulted The Queen. There's also an amazing guide to cracking crab legs that you've got to see to believe.
