For some reason I thought hitting the mother lode meant one of the teams would find an unexpectedly large gold deposit. I didn't think it was just a title reward given by Discovery. It's a bit unfair that Hoffman's got it. Their crew is more than twice the size of the other two crews put together.

I think most of us thought that way too. I'm now thinking that Discovery was gambling on one of the teams hitting a rich vein. When that didn't happen, we got what we saw last night. :nono2:

From the lawsuits about the other "reality" shows that are going on being fixed (planting of special items, etc. in the case of A&E), would not doubt it in the least that producers had to toss something into the mix so viewers would think there was some legitimacy in the show. In season #1, everyone on the show would be financially ruined if the mother-lode wasn't hit. Duh, they were all, most of them, back for season #2 and nobody was homeless nor financially ruined, but the same story was on again, if they didn't hit it big, they were all bankrupt. Didn't hit billions in ore, but they were back once again in season #3, same song, next verse, words are the same, but its only getting worse.

By repeating the same old doomsday story each season, kinda made me wonder just how naive the producers think the viewers are. :D There is no doubt in my mind that next season the story will be the same as in season #1.


All the hype of this show reminds me of "Whale Wars" where the narrator's script keeps talking about the "Japanese Navy" coming after them, when, in fact, Japan is totally banned from having any military of any kind since the truce ending WWII. Guess the producers on that show are hoping the viewers don't know that tidbit, huh?

Reality programming? Huh? :hurah:

Poor, Todd. :lol:

Unfortunately, reports of the Japanese Navy (aka Maritime Self Defense Force) running interventions to protect the Nisshin Maru (et al), is true.
