Oak Island has a lot of history. If you google it a lot comes up.

Not to derail your thread, but the show I have trouble believing is the one about "lost giants" or" searching for giants" or something like that. It looks all made up to me.

The History Channel is going down hill. Retards cutting down trees, idiots digging holes in the ground, more idiots looking for monsters, etc. Sad at one point they had a pretty good lineup.

Yeah. I do. The show is one thing, but strictly based on the evidence of a long forgotten large scale excavation / engineering project someone in the past went to a hell of a lot of trouble to put something down in the ground under Oak Island. Supposedly it was fist discovered in 1795. Its really a fascinating story.

What could be better than sitting on the couch watching people do stuff?I will say this...some of the "settled science" on history HAS to be phony.I'm still fascinated by the Ancient Alien series and some of the huge structures that defy explaination.

I don't know… but they exist and someone put them there before the first attempts to dig it out in the early 1800s. ;?

No, the show is stupid and they will find nothing!
If some great treasure were there it would have been discovered by now.
And if they were to have discovered anything during the filming of that nonsense we'd have all heard about it by now.
Same with that " discovering America " cat. He never " discovers" what he's looking for.
Same with the dipshits with the metal detectors. Never find what they start the show telling you they are searching for. " WHOOO NECTAR" give me a break.
Nonsense , all of it.

I couldnt agree more. Especially those two metal detector nimrods. Every time they go off on that NECTAR stuff i just want to rip his head off and shit down his neck. Waste of time.

Thankfully, I DVR'd season 1. There was about 20 minutes of content, the rest of the show was back tracking and just b.s. filler material.

Waste of time.

Well the one thing I like about Oak Island is, everytime they dig a hole and don't find anything, I don't hear "Oh Frigg"

I do a fishing tournament back in Southport NC.
I always thought it was the Oak Island there.
I have not watched the show, however, like most":reality" shows dont know how much is really true.

I thought this was clearly fiction. I actually think they call it a drama, not a documentary.

The real sad part for America is that the "viewers" prefer to watch some fictional Ch1t like that instead of real history.

Everytime they show the outlines at the bottom of 10X, the hatchet, human body, and chest, I am like I don't see jack chit. They are just drawing lines on a photograph that has nothing on it, it's wierd. I was stoked about it in the beginning, cool story and all, but now its become absurd and makes me want to throw my TV in the river when I watch it.
