CBS' Pirate Master
« on: May 27, 2007 at 09:57 AM »
If this takes off, Burnett can definitely wrap up Survivor.

Join 16 modern-day pirates as they embark on a high seas adventure around the Caribbean island of Dominica in search of hidden treasure that will total $1 million. Over the course of 33 days, the pirates will live aboard a massive 179-foot pirate ship.

Each week, these buccaneers will go on extraordinary expeditions and decipher clues along the way. Gold coins - real money that the pirates can take with them beyond the show - will be awarded after each treasure hunt, but only to some.

The prized gold will then play a key role as pirates strike deals with each other and vie for long-term security.

Claiming the lion's share of the week's riches, one pirate will become the captain of the ship and will assign roles and chores to the remaining crew members, setting the tone for law and order or betrayal and sabotage, which could lead to mutiny by the crew. Such fates will be decided on the ship at Pirate's Court, a lively gathering of public speaking and judgment where one individual will be "cut adrift" every episode.

In the end, captain or not, only one pirate will win the largest booty, worth $500,000, and claim the title of Pirate Master.

My main problem withthe show is that it just seemed incredibly scripted.

Even more so than most other "reality" shows.

They should let the eliminated contestants walk the plank and jump off the pirate ship to be more realistic.  ;D

This starts July 11, 9pm on AXN. For those who have seen it, is it worth watching?

You know what a reality show addict I am. I'll watch almost any show in the genre.

I saw the pilot, and haven't felt the urge to watch any more. I've set it aside for a really boring rainy day.

Thanks! Maybe I'll check it out if I'm not doing anything else. And if I remember it's on.

^^That's terrible. But then why blame an awful reality show for your problems in life? I've watched a few episodes of this show; it seemed really hokey and contrived, and I couldn't see it surviving after the buzz generated by the recent Pirates of the Caribbean movies waned.

As for Cheryl, I was always baffled why they chose to remove her ahead of that douchebag who was appointed as the first Captain--boy, those who voted her off must really feel awful right now.

Read the news last night. Really sad news. Her boyfriend's suicide was the bigger blow to her and not the show.
