    IF they had found anything, we would have heard about it on the news, anyway.

    First thing I thought after watching last episode was, they yet again managed to fritter away an hour doing nothing.

    Read in narrator's voice:
    Is it possible we might actually have something worth televising next episode?

    I'm actually paying attention now that they're finally digging in the money pit.

    Now that we may have found something lets come to complete stop. Maybe next season will go deeper.

    They didn't have anything planned after they reach their first goal? When making the plan nobody said when we find wood then what? I know it's probably the producers drawing out the show but spending thousands of dollars a day on a crew and equipment and not having a plan in place makes Rick and Marty look like complete amateurs and idiots.

    Especially since they were so sure they were in right spot, and their love of endless repetitive meetings to plan (so much as to have war room) everything out. Would think what will we do if we hit it might have come up.

    Anyone else think the producers are planting items in the swamp to go along with the sunken ship theory?

    That spike sure looks like a plain, old, rusty railroad spike to me. I've seen thousands of them in my rail fanning days.

    I'm ALMOST starting to feel sorry for the Laginas. The most fascinating part of the show to me is the psychological aspect of watching these guys piss away millions of dollars without knowing when to pack it in. It would be very interesting to follow the money trail. How much comes from the Laginas, and how much comes out of the show budget? The excavations just don't seem like they'd be financially sustainable long-term. At some point you have to say enough is enough.

    Announcer - A bone? In 10X? Could they have just found human remains?

    Sigh. No. No they didn't. They've resorted to using the remains of their lunch to push the story along.

    I don't understand why they don't get some of that professional equipment that is used for looking deep into the earth for petroleum and see what's under that island, not the cheapo drag along ground penetrating radar they messed with.

    The announcer sounds like the narrator on the old Batman show, when they found the bullet a couple of shows ago he even almost said WHAT's this. And on the bullet was ready for him to go into, could cowboys from the future have went back in time to bury their train robbery money on island and gotten into gunfight with Francis Drake and the British army.

    I'm going to try something new: summarizing episodes using as few words as possible to distill them down to their true essence.
    This week? "Found bone"

    Was some great acting by the guy and his son in law when the barrier burst. The old guy could barely keep from laughing during their talk, then son in law gave stilted oh no it burst.

    I'll go out on a limb and predict that the use of the word "incredible" is unwarranted here.

    So, apparently the "incredible" discoveries were some rocks in Smith's Cove and some wood from the new bore hole. Zzzzzzzzzzzz....
