'Deadliest Catch' Captain Out of Coma

2/3/2010 2:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Phil HarrisCaptain Phil Harris from "Deadliest Catch" woke up from a medically induced coma Tuesday, according to his sons -- and immediately started barking commands from his Anchorage hospital bed.

Jake and Josh Harris tell TMZ their dad "showed some good signs of improvement" today, including squeezing their hands.

Harris' sons -- who both work with him aboard the F/V Cornelia Marie -- say they are "encouraged but still very cautious" as Captain Phil recovers from the stroke he suffered on Friday.

One really good sign -- his sons tell us that shortly after waking up, Harris told his doctors and nurses: "Don't f**k up."

Aye, aye Captain.

Hope Phil has a speedy recovery.

It might be time to let those boys take the helm - maybe he should try a semi-retirement and enjoy some rest and relaxation.

TOO DAMN BAD

This loser is pathetic. Discovery Channel should be fined for contributing to pathetic-ness for showing this losers smoking. He huffs and puffs it to a hospital after having clots, sneaks out of the damn hospital to smoke more, then cries about the risk of dying and that crap.

This stroke, emergency evac, 13 hour craniotomy, and more .... won't make this loser truly wake up.

TV audiences and the world are better without "him"
