The Curse of Oak Island

Has anyone else started watching this show? I am a sucker for this kind of thing and so far it has been very interesting. You can watch the first two episodes in the link below. Since this was filmed over the summer, if any of you have figured out what happens please use spoilers for anything that hasn't aired yet.

http://www.history.com/shows/the-curse-of-oak-island

For those who aren't familiar, very briefly, it is about an island on the eastern shore of Canada that is rumored to have buried treasure from possibly the Knights Templar dating back to the 1300s. In 1795 an apparent secret hiding space was discovered in which levels of wooden planks were buried every 10 feet. Digging down around a hundred feet, they found some gold link chain and a few other things. Eventually they dug to a point that causes the hold to be flooded by sea water as if it was some sort of boobie trap, which is believed to come from some type of tube that is out in the ocean.

Another person in the 1970s dug alongside the original hole but also got his hole flooded by sea water. These guys now who are on the show purchased most of the island and are trying to solve the mystery with help from the guys who dug their own hole in the 1970s. The hole curse aspect is just kind of meh and I don't really pay attention to it, but I am sure the producers just like the added element it presents. The mystery and adventure is really interesting. It is nice to see a show like this that is actually producing some results so far.

I used to be intrigued with this Oak Island mystery. Until these 2 dweebs came along. Now I'm entirely certain that if there was ever anything there at all, it's gone now. Or if by chance there IS something there, these tools are never gonna find it. Never been more certain of anything. I still do tune in from time to time because it's just funny now. I mean, they find a god damn rock and act like its petrified Knights Templar poop.

If they found a Kit Kat wrapper their first conclusion would be that the Knights Templar really enjoyed candy bars. Lets call Zuzu McGoogenheimer in New York. "Yes! My research shows that the Knights Templar often had sweet tooths on their journeys and would typically go for that chocolaty wafer crunch that only Kit Kat can bring"

This show is excellent at building suspense for nothing... I'm not saying treasure hunting would be easy, but this last episode was built up huge, and they find a piece of wood... And the narrator, I don't think he's taking it seriously anymore. I am out. I might catch a recap at the end of the season, but man, yaaaawwwwwwwwwwwn....

The producers do a great job of making it seem like they're so close to a huge breakthrough. That's why people are still watching. For wasting my time, I kinda want them to fail.

I watch it primarily for the excavation/drilling technology and the comic relief, similar to the Chiefs and wrestling.

This show is one of my guilty pleasures. The outlandish "links" to the Knights Templar are quite silly.

I was telling my wife last night that i have no idea why i watch this. Of course they won't find anything. It's akin to watching one of those BigFoot hunter shows.

I don't know that they planted what they found. It's just one of those things that would make a great 90 minute documentary, but not such a great series.
