    I've already missed a decent part of the show because my tivo keeps rebooting and weather break ins. It's not even 15 mintues in to the show and I've only seen two minutes worth. Can someone please give a recap when the show is over.

    I only saw a few seconds and ain't so sure I want to see more. Then again, I hate Survivor, so there you go.

    I loved Survivior (gettin' long in the tooth IMO). But this last season I was not feeling it. Not feeling this one either. But I'll give it a couple of more weeks.

    I thought the show got a lot more interesting after the election of the captain. I liked all the reactions when the booty got divided unequally. And what's with the "scientist / exotic dancer" description?

    Black crew won challenge and banked $40,000. They then elected JD as Captain, who got half, so $20,000. JD then chose two officers, can not remember their name and they got $5,000 each. All other black crew members got only $2,000. This money can be used anyway they wish, so it can be split evenly if the captain wanted to give up some of his share or used for bartering. Captain chose three members, John, Louie and a chick, again bad with names. Each defended themselves. John tried to play a card saying to mutany against JD or else if he is voted of he is taking both compasses with him. JD then goes we don't need those, big dipper points to North Star, once you have noth you know South, East and West. In the day take a stick and put it in the mud. Mark the end of the shadow. 30 minutes later mark the end of that shadow. Draw a line, that is East and West, you then know North and South. John then ask JD which way North is now. JD looks up, waits waits waits and goes I don't know. Everyone then votes. It is unanimous... John goes home. JD cuts him away.

    Wow that's a bad show...so cheesy that Mark Burnett felt the need to cash in on Pirates of the Caribbean AND rip off his own Survivor show.

    This show will not be added to our "must watch" list this summer.

    This was painful to watch. "Survivor" on a ship... No thanks, CBS.

    I sort of enjoyed it although it seemed quite scripted and/or rehearsed compared to Survivor. Prop overload on that challenge.

    But it's not like there's much else on right now. The scenery is pretty, the people aren't all boring. I will give it another week at least.

    As far as the show goes I think it has potential with the using gold as you wish, possibly bribes, secret alliances, etc. I wonder though how they change the captain or if it just stays the same until a mutiny. Also once there is a captain change how is a new one selected. I think until all the rules are out then can gauge better if it is a good show or not.

    I thought it was really good. The structure of the game should make for some interesting game play.

    That John guy was insane. Did he really think stealing the compasses would work

    Blech. I feel a little sick after sitting through that for an hour. Drama is *way* too forced.

    It did seem a little forced, but that's to be expected with any new show (no matter how closely they copy others before it). I figured it would be a little rough with growing pains...I'll bet it gets better throughout the season. I think we're just spoiled with Survivor. ;0)

    That John guy was just plain weird! SO glad he went. Bleh! What a putz to take the compasses and use them to try to make everyone vote to keep him. All it did was make everyone lose even more respect for him (if there was any left to lose at that point).

    It would suck to be the Captain, though JD seems to be enjoying it quite a bit. It seems pretty inevitable that eventually we would see a mutiny since the others are going to want some of that $$. I think the only way the Capt. would stand a chance of staying in the game is if he bent over backwards to treat his crew really well. I'm not so sure JD is up to that challenge.

    It does seem heavily scripted. And I'd bet there were a lot of retakes trying to keep the cameras and sound equipment out of the shots, etc. in such a confined space. The pace of the first episode was a little rushed. I'd like to see a little more about how they're living day to day but I guess we'll get that in future episodes.

    I'm not all that impressed, but it's a helluva lot better that Treasure Hunters was last summer. Plus its about pirates. I'm a sucker for anything about pirates. :D

    it took about 5 seconds for the producers to show us a lot of cleavage ;)

    what's up with John and his Zorro outfit :confused:

    so far, the game seems pretty easy...I'm sure there will be a twist but JD (captain) only needs to bribe one or two regular crew members to make sure the mutiny vote is never unanimous...

    Alexis seemed to be the hottest eye candy...until she spoke...stupid is not sexy :eek:

    Do you think Mark Burnett is upset at the producer of this show for completely ripping off Survivor? ;)

    Anyway, I gave up on Survivor over the past few seasons (Thursdays too crowded) but this is good summer fare. I'll keep watching for now.

    I'll continue watching. It could be fun and will certainly be good for the summer roster. I mean if I sat through Treasure Hunters and Family TAR, I can sit through this.

    I am rooting for the Nigerian Nightmare!


    oh......I almost forgot.....
