    Well to be fair, that point could poke your eye out. :cool:

    It was cool to see John Chatterton. Loved the 'Shadow Divers' book and his old Deep Sea Detectives show.

    So after another season, they are no closer to solving the mystery of Oak Island than they were in the first episode. Eventually they have to give up, right? I mean once the TV money runs out.

    In the last episode of the season they were visited by relatives of one of the three men who originally discovered the money pit. The relatives claim that the three men found three treasure chests and they each kept one. They also brought along a gold cross they claim came from one of the chests and has been passed down through the family. Of course everyone was fascinated by this, but no one bothered to ask how big the chests were, what else was found in the chests, or any other questions which would be of importance if the story were even remotely true.

    Or the simple fact if they found it there is nothing to look for now.

    I've never watched this, but I'm living vicariously through you guys. I remember reading a book about this in elementary school in the 90s. I had so many ideas about how to get to the treasure! :)

    Thought was about time for it to return.

    I enjoyed this quote from the article:
    In reality, they could make the recap show 30 minutes and still include all the highlights from the entire first three seasons combined.

    So they will be recapping recaps of recaps.

    I hope the son-in-law isn't around this season. He was a worthless addition last year.

    I can't believe this show is still on. I actually looked forward to the first season a few years ago when it premiered because I read a story about Oak Island as a child, but I just couldn't take it anymore after the first season.

    The main reason I continue to watch is out of stupid curiosity over how long they can continue to draw this out.

    It's like a train wreck, you can't look away.

    Yep. I'm in for another season, if only to see what ridiculous idea they come up with next. That doesn't work.

    I brought this up earlier in this thread, but I'm predicting aliens this year. It's the only crackpot theory they haven't proposed yet.

    Another wack theory (they have had several shows on recently) that can get worked in is Nostradamus.

    A French map and a hatch? They've stumbled into Lost!

    I forgot how fun it was to say 'No' whenever the announcer proposes a theory.

    The hunting Hitler guys could show up too, maybe he's hiding down there.

    Man, this show is a hoot. I was briefly encouraged when Marty sat the guys down initially and they were going to drill the Money Pit. Then within ten minutes they're looking in a well 20 miles away and chasing a hatch- all based on some bogus old map.

    I can already see they're going to drag out the excavation of the Money Pit for at least the whole season. We'll get little bits and pieces of it each episode. In the meantime, the rest of each episode will be the usual BS filler.
