I caught some of a mini-marathon a few nites ago.  One epi, I think it was last season's finale, had some descendants of the teens who'd first stumbled upon the money pit way back when.  They displayed a 500-yr old golden cross which they claimed was part of 3 treasure chests dug up by their great-great-whatevers . 

Now if that's legit, where's the rest of the artifacts?  Why was this treasure supposedly found next to some nondescript tree instead of deep down the main pit?  Most important, how'd this bright ray of hope arrive just in time for the genius bros. to decide to come back for another season?

New preview reveals that mother nature wiped out the road the big rigs travel on and we start the season with an emergency road reconstruction.  I'm geeked up!

I cackled when they transitioned from the panicked attitude of WE MUST REBUILD THE ROAD NOW to "Taking a break in the war room...."

The bit on the teen boy dying hit me in the feels.

Update, they found some pottery shards.  And there's still talk of the Knights Templar.  And one of the guys got Lyme disease for a few days.

Wow canít believe that show is still on. The old In Search Of on Oak Island was creepy.

I have long been fascinated by the Oak Island Mystery but I don't watch the show because those two brothers bug me and why, I don't know.  Perhaps it's the brother with the ultra white beard...like he dipped his face in milk.  Anyway, treasure or not, I would like to know how people from so long ago were able to tame the ocean in order to install those water traps that triggered flooding when the original treasure seekers got down to a certain depth.  From an engineering standpoint, those traps would have been almost impossible to dig, especially in sand and, as mentioned, with the Atlantic ocean breathing down their necks.

Ha!  I accidentally stumbled upon that episode when I was channel surfing a hotel TV.  Next it'll be an episode about a serious outbreak of athlete's foot, not that Lyme disease is trivial. 

About time you popped out of your tree, squirrel.

In Search Of was an awesome show, a gateway drug for me and many others.  Of course they covered the whole Oak Isle story in what, 22 minutes?  This other show, is now in I believe in its friggin 5th season, so lets just say it has some "filler" lol. 

Still, I must admit, it's become a guilty pleasure, being kind of like Ancient Aliens in that even when it's totally idiotic, it's so well-done in hyping theories that sometimes it's irresistible to speculate ... Who was involved? - Blackbeard, Sir Francis Drake, the Knights Templar?  What if!  What's there? - pirate treasure, Shakespeare's lost folio, the Holy Grail?  What if!

So far it's mostly been a series of inconclusive "clues", which lead to more "mysteries", kind of like a never-ending National Treasure movie.  But damn I still binge-watch a few episodes sometimes, despite my better judgement.

Yeah I had to shake my head at how indestructible the guy is to get over it so fast, I stub my toe and I'm out for a month.  Hope all's well with you, IO.

Hi Zeebo.  I am so happy to see you back.  The place wasn't the same without you.  Hope to see some new questions in your cool Hardest Questions To Answer thread.

'Allo!
With you yet am i.
Thinking back way back am i.
Seems,way before the "In Search Of"episode,an group of would-be crackers(code,not red-necks)were able to finagle an appearance on,the "Dick Cavett Show"late night,an entire slot--mebbe,90 or so minutes,excludeing commercials.
The two men showed an slide(?)show of old and new B&W photos and maps of the entire history of the island,ending with plug for an new corporation they formed to investigate further.
What possibility that,some-one out in the 'Bull-Grab"fan base would have taped it?...

So awhile back they found some weird stuff in this one test spot like leather book bindings and pottery chips and even human bones.  Convinced they were on the Money Pit, the drilled it again with a much bigger drill, and found zilch.  So now they think maybe treasure got like "pushed" off to one side, and will drill another spot.  That poor island is like swiss cheese by now. 

They also found a supposed 12th century Templar artifact, just laying around by the beach.  Nearby they unearthed part of a toy gun, presumed unrelated.  Why do I watch this show?

The cross they found was indeed very very very old. The toy gun was determined to be one which was lost by one of the resident searchers  kids, many years ago.  The kid , now an adult, identified it. 
   The reason they keep finding new stuff along the beaches is because winter storms uncover things all the time along the beaches.  They are using a metal detector...it isn't just laying around.
Also. they found artifacts at depths below any searcher tunnels of the past.  It is very interesting.
   I imagine as a TV production being involved that we will have to deal with the drama they try to create, along with the slow to develop story of it all to stretch it out for TV.
       The TV show is showing last season's work, and as far as from the info from a person who lives on the end of the causeway to the island, who posts on a Facebook page with photos and stories etc. The operation and equipment is still there, and will resume another season of digging this spring.  The storms have battered the causeway again this winter, so I imagine they will find more items when they scan the beaches with the metal detectors again. 
   They are boring another wide hole with a caisson , and that is likely where the season will end... when they get to the bottom... LOL it will be the usual cliffhanger season ender.

Yep I admit the cross is pretty cool and the possible Templar connection is intriguing.  I am amused though at how all their discoveries just lead to more questions or fantastical theories, saying always how "this requires more research" (a.k.a. the next show).  Then when that angle fizzles out they just change the focus for awhile and go down some other sidetrack.  But I can't help myself, I keep watching the thing.  If they ever do pull it off it'll be one of the great epic "We told you so" moments ever documented.

Good stuff Beelz.  I don't think this has come up before on the show.  Perhaps insider knowledge of this was passed down amongst clandestine groups, to be exploited later.

Quick update.  The Templar 'cross' artifact discovered awhile back, is apparently instead a depiction of a goddess derived from ancient Phoenician myth.  So the mystery begets another mystery, as per usual.  Also the drill, which is excavating the hole-near-the-other-hole-we-were-sure-the-treasure-was-in-last-week, broke.

The drill broke?  Oh no!  Back when I watched the show, I always got the impression that the driller thought that the brothers were kind of, shall we say, a bit crazy.  "Oh, you want me to move the drill over there?  Sure thing."  Slight head shake, a little eye roll and suppressed smile.  Thinks to himself, "What do I care, I'm being paid by the hour."
