    If there is some sort of treasure on the island (which I think the chances are zero point zero), these knuckleheads won't be the ones to find it.

    They clearly have no gameplan, switching from the shaft to the cove to the swamp in the blink of an eye. Complete one task all the way through. Eliminate it, or verify it.

    I thought the gameplan was to make money from the TV Show

    Ahh, I didn't consider that. In that case, they are doing great.

    People's...
    Thanks to this thread I saved myself having to watch the last two episodes, or whatever they're going to come up with for the next "season".

    New season starts Nov 4th.

    Of course we know they haven't found it, but I am still in for the entertainment value.

    It's like a train wreck I'll be there, hopefully will move a little faster this year.

    I can't believe this is coming back for another season. I thought for sure that it was one and done. I was aware of the mystery on Oak Island before I saw this show. But after that first season all they found was a single coin that magically appeared on the last episode like someone took it out of their personal collection just to give some false hope for a continued search and second tv season.

    Season 2, episode 1 aired last night. And based on what you were expecting, it either delivered or failed. lol

    It is such a train wreck I can't look away. I have to laugh at the manufactured drama and theory's, and how the announcer doesn't state them as fact, but only as questions.

    And now we are moving back into the money pit after abandoning it last season.

    I don't think they were in the money pit last season were they? I thought they were in 10X

    Did anyone catch the Search for the Lost Giants, a new series that aired right after this? It's a very similar premise with two brothers who are looking for evidence of gigantic humans 7 to 10 feet tall in North America, based on old legends and newspaper accounts of supposedly unearthed fossils from Colonial times. They are digging into what they think is an old burial mound in Massachusetts in the first episode. The show has a lot of the same supposition and what ifs as the Oak Island show. Unscientific as it is, I know I am going to keep watching this.

    I could be wrong, but wasn't it the money pit where they used the remote camera?

    Just when I think they can't go any further to the absurd, they are now following a lead that King Solomon's treasures, including the Lost Ark Of The Covenant, is hidden on Oak Island.

    That carved rock in the woods was just laughable. Is there anyone who doesn't think the 'expert' had a hand in carving it?

    While the idea of the money pit itself is fascinating, the insane speculation and snail-like pace are downright infuriating. I've found myself fast-forwarding through most of the show now. If they could stick to the facts and start some actual excavation, it would greatly increase my interest.

    BTW, the producer recently did an AMA on reddit:
    https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/2l9yak/i_am_kevin_burns_executive_producer_of_the_curse/

    Apparently they've discovered the original money pit this year.

    You forgot the recapping, is about a !/4 of every show.

    You're right- I forgot about the endless recapping and displaying of the same graphics over and over. Ugh...

    The core story about the money pit is interesting enough that they shouldn't have to rely on all the manufactured drama.

    I think there is manufactured drama because there is no actual drama.

    If they cut out all the BS they could fit this whole season into a couple episodes which leaves less time for commercials which pays the bills for all the money they are spending on the island.
