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.

EXTREMELY interesting show, this is my kind of tv... there most certainly IS something strange down in there somewhere.

I sure hope those guys find it... they certainly wouldnt be allowed, but I wish they could get permission to bring in the biggest excavators with the longest booms and dippers known and just dig the hell outta the area until they get down to whatever it is.

What confounds me, is how the ancient people, whoever they may have been, engineered these extremely intricate water traps fed by the sea with ancient technology, or even got down that deep in the first place.

Well they did purchase most of the island, so I imagine once they get enough evidence they can just dig it up however they want. But of course for TV purposes they will need to draw out the process.

They didn't do too much with the sediment tank last night. They spent a few minutes sifting through the debree and found some shards of metal and little bones which were most likely small animals. They concluded they needed a better way to sift the material because there was so much. It mainly focused on what I posted about above in the spoiler tag.

Did they come up with any theories about the "tusk" poking out of the shore, besides it maybe being a way to sink boats trying to come in?

They didn't go into that at all. Some divers went underwater and found some large rectangular stones that seemed out of place and were all lined up directly and pointing towards the hole on land. Still no signs of how the water gets into the hole either. It seems like they should just dig up the entire cove though, lol.

They had mentioned that other hunters used RED dye down in the hole and it came out into the coves, seems to me, that if you did that again and had some divers in the water, they could easily find where the water is coming in.

I thought it was pretty dumb that they didn't set up a sieve screen inside the tank to separate the largest bits.

Yeah that is the one bad thing about it being a series long event. We will be probably be scratching our heads a few times with them not being more proactive and/or efficient in their methods.

I speculate that whatever treasure there was has already been found. It's just been so long and so many attempts have occured. I think if they haven't found anything yet, they aren't going to. Unless they already did. But yeah, this shit is interesting as hell. I GOTTA KNOW!
