  • Reality show mayhem. "Ghost" pirates (a.k.a. all the pirates that have been cut adrift so far) were brought back to challenge the Captain on the next expedition. Another crew member is cut adrift at Pirate's Court.moreless

    I ask myself time and again why I watch this show. I think it's sort of like a drug. I know it's stupid in a lot of ways, but it's also very addicting.

    Ways that it is stupid? Hmmm. Let's see.

    The crew. That's the number one stupid thing. Azmyth is in power...and he has good officers. He's been winning expeditions, and the crew blames him for it. All these stupid idiots like Laurel and Jupiter talking about how "the game isn't fun." HELLO?! This is a frickin' reality show! It isn't supposed to be fun, you have a million dollars at stake! Azmyth is trying to win, that's the frickin' point of the game! Azmyth is captain, he's being a fair captain, but at the same time, he's thinking "Hmmm. A million dollars. That's the point of this show. I think I'd like to win." D'oh!

    The whole mutiny concept is kind of stupid...I understand that the mutiny should have to be unanimous in order to vote...but there is a possibility that the crew is smarter than it looks. Jupiter was the only one not in favor of a mutiny...so they voted her off, so that the vote could be unanimous. I'm not sure how Pirate's Court is going to go next time, though. Because there are only two pirates left who won't be black spotted. I'm predicting that either there will be less black spots, the voting will be done in a different way, or perhaps the officers will be taken out of the equation or something.

    I also think that each pirate should have a little interview segment before the voting...because I'm smart enough to understand that most of them change their mind, decide not to mutiny, or vote for someone else because of what is said at Pirate's Court when all the pirates speak their mind, but it's impossible to understand which way they're leaning, and that causes a lot of confusion.

    Either way, I hate most of the members of the crew. Kendra is the only girl I like...Laurel is really starting to get on my nerves, because she's a beyotch to Azmyth for trying to win. Nessa's a whore, and all the stuff that she says makes absolutely no sense. Kendra may be slow, but she's not a beyotch. Louie is awesome, good-natured, and understands most of the show. Jay is OK, although he's a bit too selfish about everything...but once again, he's trying to win. Ben is cool, nice, probably my favorite character. And I've always been a fan of Azmyth.

    I hope this show gets a few more twists and turns...I think it could help people not be so "Omg lyke dis show sux." Either that, or the crew could get a brain.

    Oh well, I'll still be watching. *shrug*moreless
  • attempt of cast-offs to regain power, potential mutiny, the cook gets the boot

    It was an eye-opener to see the cast-offs (ghosts) reappearing for an expedition. No threat was to be made after the incident occured with the key. That was definitely a head shaker. I was shocked when the cook, Jupiter, was cast-off after her "threat" of mutiny. I presumed Laurel was a goner, after taking a seat, I was confident there would be a mutiny! The treasure was $50k, higher than any other. Man, as the crew dwindles, the reward will go higher and certainly the treasure amount as well. I really want to see some postings of the rewards at the end of the season!moreless
  • This episode just made my stomach curl and nearly hurl.

    So what started out as an episode that could of turned out to be a huge twist in this show, fell flat on it's face. The 'ghosts' coming back could of caused so much crap in the crew and changed everything to be more exciting. I just wanted to reach through the TV and choke John for dropping that key. The one thing you need in this game and you carelessly drop it. They could of won, way ahead of the bumbling black team, but alas, something I was looking forward to all week didn't happen, they should of just not brought them on the show for all the excitment they didn't bring. The only thing I did enjoy was to see Jupiter gone, not that I didn't like her, but she was stupid to beleive that the Trinity cared about her, I did enjoy the look of shock on her face and Azmyth's too.moreless
  • I looked, I yawned and marveled that sponsors were actually paying to hawk their wares on this waste of air time.

    I read the previous review and it was on the mark. No new ideas on the show or nothing that can save this from one of the worst shows in prime time of all time. I do take exception with people who disagree with his and my review. If you really think this show is good, do a review and show me there error of my ways. But no, you will disagree because you are either a family member of the brain dead cast, a sponsor who needs this show to do well, works for the show developer or CBS.

    This show is not good TV, will never be good TV. No matter what, this show is just bad.

    The crew says mutiny and does not do anything about it, sounds like the hunt for Bin Laden.moreless
  • Stupid stupid stupid - let me count the ways.

    I watched more of this one than I should have - just to see how stupid these so called Pirates are.

    First - The Ghosts of Pirates Past is a rip off of Pirate of the Carribean - except these ghosts were lamer - they lost the key - and what was left of their brains.

    Second - The mutiny where everyone said "Yes, lets mutiny!" except that no one did - again.

    Third - lastly the problem with this is they sit around flapping their gums for half the show - even the tasks are dull. Find a key open up container of gold. yawwn.

    Once the Ghosts lost the key and what was left of their minds, all hope for this show was lost. Now where is Patchy from LOST - hes the real Pirate! Argh Matey!!! I wish the Smoke Monster would start snatching these losers off the ship so this madness will end sooner. They are all annoying.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (20)

    • Azmyth: (on defending himself at Pirate's Court) We're definitely as fair as we possibly can be. What could we change other than the fact that we're up here? I've set an example and I think it's a fair and just example.

    • Kendra: (on defending herself at Pirate's Court) No matter what, no matter if I'm injured, I will never stop. I will keep going.

    • Laurel: (on Azmyth butting into her defense at Pirate's Court) If you could just be quiet the whole time I'm talking, I'd appreciate it, I'm sick of your voice!

    • Louie: (on being asked by Ben about mutiny) Tonight, there is a chance of Mutiny. But when you're sitting there and you're the only one voting Mutiny and there's no one else behind you…it's a waste of a ballot. But you never know what's gonna happen at Pirates' Court.

    • Jay: (on noticing the vibe on the ship) Azmyth's got a big target on his back. If Azmyth gets cut adrift tonight or Jupiter goes, I win either way.

    • Laurel: (on getting the black spot) I'm gonna do my best to embarrass him [Azmyth] no matter what 'cause I don't like the guy.

    • Kendra: (on getting the black spot) The entire crew has always put my name up first for a Black Spot just because I'm one of the slower members of the pack.

    • Azmyth: (on who to black spot) Jupiter, a lovely girl. She's awesome. But if she's saying stuff about Mutiny, giving Jupiter one of the Black Spots could have to happen.

    • Ben: (on who to black spot) Laurel, she's been annoying for awhile now. She's just complaining, not doing anything. Now she's on the chopping block.

    • Jay: (on mutiny) I have to make sure that I tell Azmyth what's happening now with the crew so that he doesn't get cut adrift.

    • Jay: (on the captain) "I've gotta get rid of Azmyth sooner or later anyways. He's stronger than me out on these Expeditions. He's gotta go. If someone approaches me with a Mutiny … I will Mutiny.

    • Azmyth: (on wining the Expedition) As the Captain, I decided to put the triad back in command. Why not? Why would I make any other choice when we're doing so good right now?

    • Ben: (on the Expedition) The Ghost Crew, if they win, they could potentially change the whole name of the game by taking the triad out of power and potentially giving us all Black Spots.

    • Kendra: (on the Expedition) I will hurt myself before I will quit.

    • Joe Don: (on being a Ghost Pirate) I really want to be the guy that's gotta tell them [the triad] who gets the Black Spot. I'm gonna slay 'em.

    • Ben: (on the Ghost Pirates) There was a lot of resentment and anger coming from those Ghost Pirates that would be directed at myself, Azmyth and Jay. We're the strong triad and we knew that if we lost, our asses were on the line.

    • Jay: (on the Ghost Pirates) All the ghosts of the old crew that we cut adrift, I'm pretty much responsible for every single one of those people. So I'm a little bit nervous.

    • Kendra: (on her deal with Jay) Why was I doing what basically the enemy wanted me to do? We need to break the power up because they're gonna continue to win. I feel it would be in our best interest if Azmyth was no longer the Captain.

    • Nessa: (on Joe Don going) Joe Don's been cut adrift because Captain Az wants to eliminate any chance of the Red Crew ever winning. So he wants to eliminate the manpower. And that's me. There's not much manpower left on the Red Crew.

    • Jupiter: (on being cut adrift) I'm surprised that I got cut adrift. Azmyth has changed because of his position and his power. I'm just shocked. I have, from day one, had Azmyth's back. But you can't always expect people to treat you the way that you treat them.
