About this show

In 1795, three teenage boys discovered a strange, man-made hole on Oak Island, a small, wooded island just off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada. As the boys began to dig, they found a number of intriguing artifacts. It was the end of the piracy era and rumors of buried treasure were rampant. The boys' discovery launched a treasure hunt that has spanned more than 200 years, cost millions of dollars and involved dozens of speculators, engineers and even famous personalities such as John Wayne, Errol Flynn and Franklin D. Roosevelt.

I believe the historical facts discovered that date back to 1600 - 1700 tells a unique story of what actually took place and is a huge part of our heritage for Nova Scotia. There's no denying the finds of just how many towns & cities of Nova Scotia that are linked to activities this show has depicted. Image what kind of life it must have been back in those times. I'm totally addicted to this show and my hope is that there is finally answers to this mystery.

Two brothers set out on a journey to uncover the mysteries of Oak Island, a patch of land off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada. The isle is said to hold buried treasure, some of which is speculated to be lost religious artifacts and a manuscript from Shakespeare. However, booby traps have prevented explorers from uncovering the hidden location to these precious items. The show itself is good if you enjoy learning about obscure history. Expect to learn about the Knight's Templars in particular. There's a great atmosphere, which can get dramatic and tense at times due to the dangers that these treasure hunters face on the island, thanks to decades of dilapidated structures that date back to the late 1700's. The only real negative thing to be said about The Curse of Oak Island is the intrusive, annoying announcer. You will hear "A __, found on Oak Island? Could it be that __?" over and over again, along with the same cutaway sequences detailing the booby traps, past explorers, and surrounding theories of what the treasure could be and who it could've been left by. It actually gets annoying after a while, though the rest of the show does make up for it during its most intense times.

In 6 entire seasons theyve done little more than speculate theories, recap the same clips 100s of times and exaggerate what "treasure" is. While the premise of the show is enticing I would suggest watching only the first and last episodes of a season. They recap every highlight at the beginning and end of every show, stretching a legitimate 15 minutes of new content into an hour (on tv with 20 minutes of commercials).
