  • Azmyth keeps his captaincy when the Black Crew wins another expedition. Joe Don and Nessa have some romance blooming, and at Pirate's Court, another member is cut adrift.

    6.5
    Besides the fact that this episode was almost identical to most of the other episodes of Pirate Master, it was somewhat enjoyable. I actually rather enjoy the triad of Azmyth, Jay, and Ben. It provides some interesting situations during expeditions, when most of the manpower is on one side. Also, the romance that is blossoming between Joe Don and Nessa is providing some character development, something that I feel Pirate Master is lacking. I was also glad, finally, to see one of the weaker crew members cut adrift. Joy was way too whiny from the start, and it's good to know she won't be slowing anybody else down.



    One thing I've been wondering about is how the game is going to work in a few more episodes when there aren't enough pirates left to vote...I think that's gonna be interesting to see what kind of new twists are interjected. Maybe that will break up some of the monotony. Hopefully, since it's now moved to Tuesday, it will have better ratings as well. I guess I'll just have to wait and see.moreless
  • romance blooming, narrowing down the strong players, teams becoming more cohesive

    7.5
    I enjoyed this episode, because the romance is starting. I loved this in other shows as well. This wasn't as surprising as other shows match-ups. Azimuth gave me a rise when he upped his take on the treasure. I also figured this game would get lopsided, but so far it is fairly well set. I wasn't impressed with the booty being the same as last time. I would think the amount would be higher or fluctuate more. I hope that the results of everyone's winnings are tabulated and presented somewhere by season's end. Money is being thrown around quite a bit.moreless
  • I'm still liking it, maybe we will get to see them stab each other in the back.

    7.5
    I've come to a conclusion about the Pirate Master's crew. At first I wanted them to be nice pirates, entertaining, but not manipulative. But now I've given that up since the show is heading not in that direction at all. Now I want Red Team against Black Team. I didn't like J.D. but now, teamed with Louie, seeing that they hated each other, is great against the upper crust boys. I want to see the underdogs win, to see if J.D. would be Captain again. Go Louie or aka Red Team. Since now I would like to see them play dirty, it may get more interesting.moreless
  • Baaaaaaa baaaaaaaa - Ker CHOP!

    2.0
    I cant believe I actually watched most of this episode - it was just like the parts of the rest I did see. They do a task and one pirate gets cut loose. zzzzzzzzzzzzz. Its basically the same show each week. No wonder ratings are falling and people are drifting away from it. Even Big Brother as a lead in didnt help. The move to Tuesday probably wont either.



    Why did they talk about mutiny then no one voted for it? The collective IQs of this bunch is less than that of a head of lettuce. Then again would this have really changed anything? And what is this talk of a "secret society"? Nonsense. All of these people are trying to screw each other over to win. Keeping track of JERICHO promos and watching the commercials was more interesting than the show itself. Basically you just need to watch the final 5 minutes of each episode.



    Why dont they just have a mass ejection and speed it up to the final 2? Then give each one a cutlass and a pistol and let em go at it like real pirates? Argh Matey!!!!!!moreless
  • This show should is as boring as Survivor when one tribe outnumbers another. The only chance to shake up the status quo is with a mutiny and they are too stupid to see that.moreless

    3.0
    This was the perfect week to do a mutiny, but the combined IQ could not figure that out. This show is not as good as the last years Apprentice which was not renewed, gee I wonder why.

    Let's see a mutiny and at least something different. The poster child for reality shows has had Apprentice not renewed and the show on Fox suffered a similar fate, I am pretty sure this one will be the trifecta.

    As I have read elsewhere Survivor is stale, the changes the made to that show last year were for the most part stupid, and then he brought them to the Apprentice. I think we will be watching a movie of the week next year.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Louie: (on who to vote for) I can think of 100,000 reasons on why not to vote for all of them and I can't think of one good one why. I don't know what I'm doing.

    • Joe Don: (on why he should not be cut adrift) I think it's gonna be tough if I'm gone and the brunt is on Louie. With four women and one man against three strong men, it seems like an easy equation to me.

    • Louie: (on his choices) I did say that I would never vote for a lady. And tonight I almost have to because Joe Don is now my closest ally in the fight against the Black.

    • Neesa: (on being threatened with the black spot) I don't like being threatened into how I need to vote. I'm not afraid of them and I'm not gonna do what they tell me to like a little sheep.

    • Laurel: (on Azmyth) The way I feel about Azmyth right now is super sketchy. I look at him as like a greedy idiot that needs to go home.

    • Azmyth: (on retaining power) We have three strong males that the other crew can not acquire. And strategically our minds work very well together. We're truly trying to seek the end of the game right now.

    • Neesa: (on winning the hunt) It was important for us to get Azmyth out of the Captainship. It's not just the treasure you're losing, but it's potentially the end of your voyage and none of us wanted that.

    • Ben: (on Christa's efforts in the hunt) I'm crazy impressed with Christa, she's a soldier. She looks like a Barbie doll on steroids, but she never stops.

    • Jay: (on the Treasure Hunt) When you're out there and somebody's dragging behind that much and somebody wants to stop and have water, I'm like you don't need water. You need loot, you need treasure. Keep moving.

    • Laurel: (on Azmyth) I have no respect for that fool right now. When he's in the blue coat, he's a totally different person…He's a super freak in a blue coat.

    • Joe Don: (on Azmyth) As a Captain, Azmyth is junk. He doesn't have the leadership qualities that I think a Captain should have.

    • Christa: (on Azmyth) As a Captain, Azmyth is junk. He doesn't have the leadership qualities that I think a Captain should have.

    • Christa: (also on the captain and his officers' strength) These three guys are gonna stick together no matter what. They're gonna take over, they're gonna try to get the other men gone. The women need to step up and win against the Captain. Then we'll be able to have an all girls Officer group.

    • Jay: (on the captain and his officers' strength) We don't have to worry about three strong men on the other crew. No matter what, the other crew is gonna have Joe Don and they're gonna have Louie. It's not bad.

    • Joy: (on being cut adrift) I hate losing. I gave 110 percent. And then when you lose, it hits you pretty hard, but then you get up, dust your knees off and keep going.
