The alligator hunting industry is on the verge of collapse due to the lowest prices in history. Troy calls a meeting of the patriarchs from the swamp's main gator hunting families: RJ Molinere, Daniel Edgar and Bruce Mitchell. Together, they form a "Cajun Cartel," and for the first time ever, they put their differences aside to work as a team, and fight to keep their industry alive.
I just don't understand why Episode 9 aired on the 2nd and this episode won't be available on Amazon until the 9th. ( Was just told on the phone by an amazon representative) I'm gonna lose my mind! I want to see it NOW!!!!!... why did I miss it when it was airing on History. ugh. This is killing me softly.
I love this show. Have always looked forward to it. Season 5 so far seems an unfortunate bust, yet the most upsetting thing is how it has been organized by the History Channel (this season). Literally just watched the last episode in 5 minutes. 40% of the episodes now seem to be recaps from previous episodes. 20% Dramatic reconstruction of past possible scenarios. 10% actual engaging and interesting new developments. The rest is fast camera panning, redundant reiteration of known material, and melodramatic face shots and narrations. Also, please fire the narrator. Not that he doesn't seem like a nice guy but its like the boy who cried wolf. After awhile the inflection of excitement and mystery wears off and becomes an annoying buzz. "Next time on Oak Island...*looks like something really exciting. Turns out guy was just yawning.*
The running joke continues... 'could it be?' We quit watching this for any content or serious reasons a few seasons ago... now we just enjoy their finding nothing and going off on tangents like Cortez, Knights Templar, etc. They are just missing possible space alien visitors and the Spanish Inquisition for past visitors to Oak Island. But, hey, Season 5 is still young...there's always time for a visit from My Favorite Martian.
Marty - what's with the product placement of that Michigan vineyard / wine logo displayed your polo shirt(s)? How many of those shirts do you own? Will you find a bottle of that wine in the Money Pit?
The entire cast is fantastic! They have a really warm, interpersonal relationship going for them and its nice of them to share their quest with their viewers. We don't care if anything is found, its just nice seeing people working on their shared dream... that's what built America (and Canada, eh?) Don Quixote would agree.
I love the show but would really like to watch the next episode. Where is it? I paid for season 5 and expect to be able to watch all of season 5. For some reason I have not been able to watch the 9th episode (referred to as episode 8 Dans Breakthrough on the history channel).
I've been completely mesmerized by this show since Season 1, when I caught an episode by accident and never stopped watching after that. Yes, the replays and repetitiveness of some of the clips gets annoying, but all in all this show is fantastic. Each new discovery adds additional dimension to an already confounding mystery. The history covered in the show is also quite fascinating. It's clear there's something down there. My most sincere hope is that it is Templar treasure from the Holy Land. But, who knows.
My only complaint is that I can't watch new episodes live, or shortly after airing. I have to wait until the next day to watch. Amazon streaming should really fix that problem. With a show as eagerly anticipated as this one, we should be able to watch as it airs, especially since we've paid for the content.
