    Quoted from pacmanretro:

    So I have been binge watching this past week or so after surgery and they have found some interesting stuff. The history behind a lot of it fascinating to say the least, a lot of the theories fit well with the puzzle and some are a little out there but who knows where this will go.

    The one thing I do take away from this show is that you really get a sense for Ricks personality and I honestly believe he genuinely cares not only about the research and the lost treasure but about all the people in general from past to present. On several occasions he really have become a bit emotional when he met with Lee Lamb and Bobby's logs, the time capsule deposit, when Fred Nolan past and when Drake had past. I could only imagine how he'll be when they open up next season with Dan's passing. Rick is the type of guy I love to sit and have a few drinks with and chat away on history.

    Actually last episode Marty is quite eager to return to the swamp and dig now knowing there is a very suspicious anomaly in there. So much so that they even pushed aside and did even mention the possible tunnel anomaly from the Swamp high lands to the money pit again. It's getting very interesting for sure.

    Over??? Nope this is just the beginning.

    The show reached in this past season 54.6 million viewers, guaranteed History Channel is funding a major part of the doings on the island now in addition to the cast now being paid as well.

    Ricks net worth went from 500K when first started to over 2 million now just short of 3. Well Marty already had a cash flow from his companies but even his worth has jumped a few million. History channel will keep paying riding the wave of Oak Islands popularity, if and when the ratings start to fall off.... treasure will be found at the point (if not already and leaving it on the back burner) and bring the series to a close. Till then, if it ain't broke don't mess with it motto.

    Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

    The info at 2 Million in Net Worth, seems to be in error. Click the next few links on Google, and the sale of his Oil Co, and Net Worth of his Wind Turbine Company, and Winery. I think the 2 Million was pulled from somewhere regarding from only "Oak island Ventures".....Estimates are 40-100 Million in Net Worth.

    That 2+ is Rick's net worth. I think Marty is 100+. I probably should have worded my comment a little better then I did lol.

    Quoted from jhanley:

    They are never going to find shit.

    ...and yet here I thought they already did. Not a large quantity / stash of pirate style treasure but with no doubt artifacts and coins dating way back showing there was some activity as thought in the legends.

    Quoted from jhanley:

    People keep watching the show so it must be good business for the brothers who get paid for this . I think they should just dig a nice huge hole right in the money pit and see what they find. As many holes on that island that there are they might as well. The announcer really makes me cringe.

    Oak Island is one of the top rated cable TV shows which equate to big money. So IMHO even if they do or already did find something of significance The History Channel will continue to ride that gravy train until the ratings start to fall off then wrap it up with their payoff findings. In the meantime more bucks means less funding THC has to put out for their digs. Still fun to watch and learn some history in the process.

    THC? Is that a Freudian slip?

    THC - The History Channel, not to be confused with Tetrahydrocannabinol lol
