  • Sydney and Nigel try to find a pirate's treasure.

    3.0
    After an cringe-worthy start to the episode, Sydney and Nigel accompany Jamie - a widow - to a Carribean island where they try to prove that the book 'Treasure Island' may be based on fact. Using some data provided by Jamie, Sydney and Nigel set about finding a treasure left behind by pirates. However, the search is interrupted by attempted thefts, innocent infatuations, kidnapping and unexplained deaths. Sydney and Nigel seem to accept all these things in their stride and finally locate the treasure chest on a secluded beach - but Jamie's husband shows up, threatens Sydney and Nigel and buries them in the beach. Jamie then turns on her husband and shoots him! Eventually Sydney prevents Jamie running off with the treasure.



    This episode had the potential to be really great - focusing on the ultimate relic hunting experience - finding a buried treasure. But the acting by the supporting cast is ordinary to terrible, the explanation for all the deaths not very credible and the burying of Sydney and Nigel ridiculous. A very disappointing episode.moreless
