  • Woman as captain?

    Woamn as captain? Doesnt matter. People who arent watching these episodes online arent missing much. Only 7 people even bothered to vote on this episode. No way this show is ever coming back. Especially since reruns of CSI: MIAMI are getting ratings twice as good as Pirate Master.

    They should have just had a mass ejection and got down to the final 2 and aired the finale. Like Quaker Bob said, if I could give this one a 0 I would. Watching the end of this one was bad enough. Why did TV.COM remove the Appalling rating? It is really useful for episodes like this one. The only reason I still follow this show is to find out who wins - all the minutia of how it happens just doesnt matter. As they said, its not how you play the game, its whether you win or lose. No one remembers the losers. Maybe the ship will sink.moreless
  • It appears that CBS is smarter than I gave them credit for, the finally pulled the plug on this disaster. This was not good TV, it was Survivor regurgitated but far worse. I would leave a score of 0, but the lowest possible score you can l eave is 1.moreless

    I had the CBS internet feed on for something to do the other day, yes bikini clad helped, but this show was beyond help after the first episode. Another Burnett failure, that goes with his Fox debacle and Apprentice which last year was so bad that it took a week for some people to do the first review. If no one watches or cares, it does not matter who had the brain spasm for the show. The last season of Survivor with the have and have nots was horrible, then to take it to Apprentice where you are trying to get a job was beyond the real world and just something to show what people will do for money.moreless
  • seeing the cutthroat experience, bikini clad captain in the mud with no fighting,

    There seemed to be more backstabbing here than most any reality TV experience that I have seen. As Nessa said before being cast off, eat each other alive. I don't think it will be pretty from this point on unless the game changes soon. I still enjoyed seeing Christa as she dressed and digging in the mud. I scratch my head that the show was cancelled. Survivor steals the ratings and this show has similar traits to it. I am not sure if it was the schedule or simply the pirate atmosphere. You also see Pirates of the Caribbean making huge sales. I think Burnett was thinking brilliantly on this show. It just didn't catch on.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (20)

    • Nessa: (as she's cut adrift) I'm both flattered and disgusted at your guys' cowardice. I'd rather run among the strong than lie among the weak. Have fun eating each other alive.

    • Nessa: (defending herself at pirate's court) I want to know if my strength is more of a threat to you than Kendra's weakness is detrimental. I'm not really sure if there's some kind of pact or what the deal is. Is there something going on that I should know about?

    • Kendra: (defending herself at pirate's court) I will never stop and give up on you. I can just remind you that I am getting stronger.

    • Ben: (on who he's voting to cut adrift) The reason that I'd get rid of Kendra this week is because I'm closer to Nessa than I am to Kendra. But if I'm the only one who votes for Nessa to stay, then that singles me out. I gotta make that decision when I get there.

    • Nessa: (on the black spot) It's a pirate ship…You never know who you can trust.

    • Louie: (on who got the black spot) She's [Christa] put the weakest and the fastest up on the Black Spot…Nessa deserves to stay. She's the best competitor. I mean, it's good for me to have Kendra around because if anybody wants to cut the weak, they'll cut her. So it's not an easy choice.

    • Jay: (on black spotting Nessa) I have no problem of playing the dual roles here of nice guy and backstabber. If you think you can play this game like Howdy Doody and be a nice guy the whole time, you're gonna end up cut adrift.

    • Neesa: (on getting a black spot) I thought that Christa and I were cool. You know, she and Jay and Ben and I had a pact that it would be the four of us.

    • Kendra: (on getting a black spot) It seems to not matter how well I do. I get tired of standing up and trying to plead my case every week.

    • Jay: (on who to black spot) Getting rid of the strong competitors right now is important. You really gotta start looking at who do I want to be up against at the end.

    • Christa: (on winning the expedition) This win just solidifies our place in the game. We're golden to the end, guaranteed.

    • Ben: (on the expedition) Now, the waterfall's coming down crazy heavy. I'm half drowning, I'm sucking in water like it's my job and you're feeling around for a clue and we have no idea where it could be hidden.

    • Ben: (on the crews for the expedition) It makes things easier that myself, Jay and. It makes it tricky in that none of us are on the opposing crew, so if we lose, then that could throw a little wrench in the works.

    • Ben: (on the expedition) Jay is a snake. It's good to have a snake on your side because he's always conspiring . .. But Jay's got a grasp on Christa and I see them getting tighter and tighter and that's a threat to me because the tighter they get, the farther away I get.

    • Jay: (on the expedition) Today's Expedition is all about keeping Christa and myself running the ship. I'll do whatever I have to do to keep Christa in power.

    • Laurel: (on Kendra) Kendra talks my ear off Everyone wants her gone, but Kendra has slipped through the cracks time and time again.

    • Jay: (on strategy) Right now, my strategy with Nessa is to make her feel warm and comfy with myself, Ben and Christa. When in reality, she's really not part of my final four.

    • Christa: (on Jay) Jay's pretty much been the Captain of the ship since day one. He's just never worn the hat.

    • Jay: (on his biggest threat)Nessa, she's one of the strongest competitors out there. I don't want to go up against her in the end. She's in a lot better shape than me. She's a little boxer, she'd kick my butt.

    • Nessa: (on being cut adrift)I don't know what happened back there, I'm still in shock. There's some conniving people on that ship. If that's how they're gonna be, I'm really happy not to be on a ship with those people anymore 'cause they're not the kind of people I want to surround myself with.
