Pirate Master


Quote:
"Pirate Master," a new competitive series produced by the impresario of reality TV, Mark Burnett of "Survivor" and "The Apprentice." It debuts in the "Survivor" time slot at 7 p.m. today on CBS' WBBM Channel 2.

Sixteen contestants will be thrown together on a 179-foot sailing ship as it cruises the Caribbean circling the island of Dominica. The show features the usual reality shenanigans (there will be a pirate captain assigning duties each week, and a Pirate Court at the end of each episode, with one contestant "cut adrift" or made to "walk the plank" by host Cameron Daddo, the Aussie Jeff Probst of the competition). And a final contestant in the $1 million race will claim about half the booty by finding the buried treasure at the end.

Mark Burnett should make every reality show from now on. It will at least give that genre of television some credibility.

It reminded me of Survivor in bits, but it was watchable and somewhat interesting. I'll likely continue to follow this one

I thought it was kind of hokey. But...I'm still interested in it enough to watch again next week. I was bummed to see John go, he seemed to be the most entertaining. Can't say I blame them though, because I don't think I'd want to share a ship with him...even if he is a "scientist/exotic dancer".

Isn't everyone tired yet of all these 'reality' shows?

^ no... not when there's nothing else on TV!

I didn't want John to go either, but he must have been really strange.

Joe the Captain is acting like a dick... I wonder if he's an actor hired to get things started? He seems like a plant - the situation seem staged.

I think that's what seems so hokey. It kind of feels like they are putting on a play at times, not competing in a game.

^ I agree. It'll be interesting to see if it ever gets more "real".

Same time as Survivor, I think, Thursday nights at 8 PST.

Something has to keep me in the habit of sitting in front of the tv for an hour every Thursday night, which is where I've been every Thursday night for what, seven years now?

I missed the first episode. Not sure if I will watch it ... someone said it was like Mark Burnett took survivor and put an eyepatch on the contestants.
