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*
