    I think the turning point for me was the disappointment after all the hype for "The Billion Dollar Wreck ". This show gave me a wake up call. Name:  sinking rowboat.gif

    I think all the producers of these shows are missing the obvious point

    how about a show that mocks all the others?

    say a dude (with his beer assistant) finds a gold coin in ohhh central park about an inch down?
    while rubbing it and getting ready to run jump and tumble in pure joy, he looks at the camera and says "yeah right"

    Josh Gates from Expedition Unknown acts like that from time to time. He finds a little bit of something and then looked at the camera and said he quit.

    The only problem is reality shows are not reality.

    Getting to be so true. As I had said in an earlier post, when the producers are threatened to bring more drama to the show, it takes an ugly turn. Making anonymous phone calls with totally fabricated rumors in order to provoke "on screen" re-actions is crap.
    I like the Superstition Mountain show and it showed to what extent the producers would go to stir the pot. It was never proved, but during one episode the guys thought it odd that "someone" was always one step ahead of them in planting things. Like we learned Woody was kind of superstitious and then these red hand prints started turning up. Then the guys determined that the red paint was FRESH and someone was playing them. The guys, I liked, the production crew - not so much.

    The guys from the Superstition Mountains show have a you tube channel ... they are continuing, but without the scripting and the rest. Just hunting.

    All Types Of Treasure Hunting
    Might as well watch the inane "survivor" shows. All those shows are BS. American Diggers at least had guys finding real junk and a few decent finds, but their ID of some stuff was ludicrous. "Could have been" from this or that event is useless nonsense. If you like that kind of entertainment so be it, but many of those shows are just that, they never intend to find anything, just make money selling shows to TV networks. Pickers and Pawn Stars at least have some really cool stuff and actual values although I saw the PS guys pay 600 bucks for a fake knife so I have to wonder. The storage shows give prices that nobody anywhere would pay for a lot of what they find, more BS. CW Gold is total BS, Oak Island close behind, ditto Josh Gates.
