Media Center>The Curse of Oak Island
mr. tegu 01:31 PM 01-13-2014
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 am sure that is what it is. They had some paranormal investigators come visit them at their base house and also at night in the field. It was so obvious the brothers were annoyed by the whole thing. They were barely even playing along. They only got about two minutes worth of tv out of it. That was probably all that was left after they edited out all the scenes of the guys rolling their eyes at the paranormal investigators.

What kind of paranormal investigators, mediums trying to get a sense of the islands past or something like that?

They had a few blurry photos to show and then they took some device out to the swamp at night that started beeping which was supposed to have meant something was trying to communicate with them. They kept saying how the island had a strange feel to it and other typical descriptors of haunted sites. I find those things interesting in general but it was pretty much nothing but a little filler in this show.

More than just a little filler. I feel like this crap is all we're going to get out of the show. Seriously annoyed already.

Yeah. We started watching this show after Oak Island was featured on America Unearther, thinking it might be a similar show.

It's not.

For me, this is the problem with American television. They demand 16 episodes or something close. A lot of time to fill means a lot of Bullshit.

I meant the paranormal investigators were a little filler. The whole show was made up of many little fillers of different types, which mostly none of which had really any substance. But I agree, they better make next weeks episode more like the first two, and not this most recent one.

I have only ever seen that show on H2. Is it on the regular History channel?

I hope nobody is expecting these clowns to find anything out there. Because they won't.

If you're saying they won't overcome the difficulties in getting to the bottom on the pit, I agree. If you're saying there is nothing down there, or that someone already got to it, I think you're silly.

There might be something down there. I don't think it's 100% definite though.

Then what would your explanation of the whole thing be?

There's a sinkhole with nothing in it.
