    Not a huge surprise with the way CBS has been moving it around.

    CBS Cancels Pirate Master

    I'll watch the last 5 episodes on the web, but considering how much less I've been enjoying it as the cast dwindles, very much the opposite of Survivor, it's not unexpected.

    At least we'll get to see it burned off to completion on the web unlike shows like 3LBS that just went *poof* despite promising to finish out on innertube.

    <insert obvious "walk the plank" "set out to drift" etc comments>

    Well this is frustrating. Not that I particularly liked the show, but it's the show I watch with my son and he's going to be upset. I know I'll forget to watch it online. Grrrrr! Or more appropriately: Arrrrgh!

    Frickin' great. Now I'll never see the end, because the online video stuff never works.

    And they wonder why folks never start watching? Duh.

    It wasn't the greatest show in the world, but it was a show my girlfriend and i liked to watch together. Guess we'll have to figure out something else to do now.

    Doesn't surprise me. It was background noise for me as my wife watched. I feel bad though...for my wife of course.

    Well I gave up on it on week 3, just because of time constraints really. I had anticipated catching up at some point but i would have had to found missing episodes around somewhere.

    It is interesting they just did a massive ad campaign and launch for the show in Australia.

    Mark Burnett is not having a good summer is he?

    That sucks.
    Hopefully the remaining episodes become available in torrent form soon.

    My problem with it was once strong leaders were put into place it became too difficult to unseat them. I doubt I'll watch the end.

    I've been meaning to start watching this show from the beginning. I've been catching it after Big Brother. I looks interesting but I don't quite grasp the concept.

    I was getting a bit bored with the show, but I would have watched the remaining eps on TV.

    My internet connection often does not play well with streaming video feeds, so I'm not sure if I will watch the online eps. I guess I'll try, but if it's a hassle I expect I'll just give up.

    Does the winner still get the money and everything if the show isn't fully aired?

    On the CBS site, they've got the episode divided into 4 parts. I was able to watch parts 1-3, but it errors out on part 4. Anyone else have this problem?

    Someone will record the streams and bittorrent the avi files. As bad as this show is I must see how it ends.

    The CBS site wants me to install Real Player to view the show. Ain't gonna happen.

    It would be good it our TiVo could go out to the web and download the remaining episodes from CBS but that technology must be some months away.

    My Mom was watching this but she doesn't have internet access (and doesn't know how to use it anyway). :( Maybe I can burn a DVD of a torrent and let her watch it on a laptop.

    With all the cable channels that Viacom owns, it is a shame they couldn't dump the last 5 episodes on one of them, even if it is over night, so those without internet or don't like watching shows on their computer can see them.
