Below Deck - S03E03

Reality-TV . Reality

The return of Kate’s charter guest soulmate from last season, Dean, keeps the Eros crew on their toes and forces Kate to up her towel-art game. After a pep talk from her Dad, Rocky tries to keep going with her mundane stew tasks while Don tries to make amends with Eddie, but ends up butting heads with his fellow “deckies” instead. The heat in the kitchen flares up when Kate questions chef Leon’s credentials as a yacht chef after he is unable to prepare a traditional Bahamian meal for the guests. After catching an eyeful of Rocky in her thong swimsuit, Don decides to join her in a quick swim, and in doing so, puts his future onboard the yacht in jeopardy.

    The premiere episode is a fairly entertaining, voyeuristic look at a made-for-reality-TV crew, though it's a toss-up as to who's more obnoxious: the bickering crew or their first guests.

    Certain elements of Below Deck, a listless docu-series that follows the staff of a 164-foot charter boat, seem so scripted--the stereotypical spoiled crew members, the neatly wrapped-up “plotlines”--that it’s hard to take seriously, even in the dubious cable reality show genre.

    The dramas, at least up front, feel pretty mundane. Someone thinks the boss is being too strict and picking on her. Someone doesn’t think someone else is carrying enough of the load.

    The real issue with this series is that the crew members aren’t all that interesting. There are the usual catfights and territorial disputes, as well as some hints that intra-crew sex might happen. But no one really stands out.
