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.

The bones are likely animals that fell in. The metal rust likely from the metal shell surrounding the top 50ft of the shaft and it's covering. Really doubt much of anything would be able to make it down the flood shaft, sand/dirt and other sediment sure, but likely nothing else.

The info on 10X makes me disappointed in the show. Apparently it's lined with steel 50ft down, then cement all the way to bedrock. It seems 10X is a known.
Some very interesting events in 1991.

So destroy an island for what is most likely going to be nothing? Sorry, but that is just stupid.

Meh, you wouldnt have to destroy the whole thing, its well over 200 acres IIRC, if I were in charge and had the money, the area in question would be ripped up pretty good.

Its not a perfect fix, but worst case scenario you just backfill it all and let nature take over again.

After reading the entire oakislandmoneypit.com article Im left with only one conclusion. IF it is all factual and they DID find remnants of a dam of sorts in front of the drain boxes than it could have been dug out completely dry and then the dam pulled to allow the booby trap part.
Either that or some people terraformed that island with oak every 10 feet haha.

there are differing reports, some say that there never were beams, just "soft areas" where they thought something HAD been.

A lot of conflicting info out there.

If all reports of findings this far into the treasure hunt are true, then I far it hard to believe there is nothing down there.

Your remark of "most likely nothing", strikes me as very odd.

I can't stand when he gets into the BS Freemason conspiracies. But when he pulls out the "Minoans mined thousands of tons of copper in Michigan during the early Bronze Age" I admit I can't stop watching.

Its entirely too believeable to think that several different peoples were in North America long before Columbus.

I've never heard of Minoans in North America but I have read that the Vikings were here long before Columbus and of course theories of Africans influencing the Olmec as well.

That's interesting stuff..
