One of my goals this Labor Day weekend was to watch the rest of Pirate Master.
One thing about CBS's innerTube player is that is does not let you fast forward or go backward, although it has the buttons for it. If I do it just repeats the entire loop. I was 28 minutes into part 1 of episode 14 and tried to pause and BAM! it looped back to the start. What a PITA. CBS really needs to rectify this situation. I have to said the player that ABC has is excellent, no stalling due to buffering, no pixelation, and you can pause, go forward and backward with no problem. BTW I have DSL.
Episode 09: Azymuth - you were a fool not try to save yourself. I believe there is a bible quote about pride and falling that suits your situation perfectly.
Episode 10: It was interesting to see the new triad at work and backstab Nessa off the boat. Oops, I was about to say off the island. It is a pleasure to see an alliance actually work together hatch a plan, and work the plan to the end. So many times have we have seen this not work (on Survivor) that it was refreshing to see it work here, regardless of my personal feelings about Jay.
Episode 11: At this point it is rather pitiful to watch the 2nd Triad Alliance pick of pirates one by one. Still I thought Crista totally stupid for not considering voting Jay off at this point. I don't mind a bit of competition but don't shoot yourself in the foot about it. Seriously, as long as Crista had Ben on her side she was OK. In fact after she got rid of Jay, she should have gotten rid of Ben. Well, she could have gotten rid of Laurel then Ben. Against Louie and Kendra she would have won hands down. Being that brutal and harsh is how a pirate would be and would have earned her the title of Pirate Master. Oh, bye, bye Kendra.
Oh, I forgot, Jay cheats at cards.He took Ben for $2,000. I hope all the people he plays cards with watch this webcast or friends tell them about it.
I also liked how there was no loot in the treasure chest, but Jay got what he wanted. Christa still in power and him in charge of it all.
Episode 12: It was painful to watch Jay throw the expedition, Louie and Laurel were doing quite well. As far as drama this episoded properly had the most. Jay is revealed to be a liar and schemer and yet Ben ends up with a blackspot. Again Christa was told that Jay was a schemer, cheater and backstabber, but because he has kids she has bonded with him. Come on woman what about your kids. I hated how she was emotional about this for the wrong reasons. She should have been emotional about providing for her child not Jay's.
Still at this point it seems a very obvious Ben, Jay, Christa finale. Bye Bye, Laurel.
Episode 13: 2 expeditions left. Now it was hard to watch Ben throw the expedition especially with Louie as a teammate it looks as if they would have won. Unfortunately either Louie or Ben would have had to be the captain. If it was Louie it was a no brainer Jay would have had the blackspot. Still who would Louie trust to vote either Jay or Christa off.
Again it was painful to watch Christa again not take advantage of the situation and give Jay and Ben the black spots and give Louie the power to vote whom ever off. I'm sure Jay would have gone. It killed me to see her throw away another chance to win this game, especially when Jay threatens her by saying he would never forgive her. Ha, that is so feminine. Guys are more logical than that they cut each others throats all the time and understand it. Claiming he would never forgive her is like a girlfriend saying it to another girlfriend. Wait a minute! Does this mean Jay is GAY?
Episode 14: Part 1 28+ minutes the 14th expedition. Why in the heck were Jay and Ben ever worried about Christa being any kind of competition. They both wopped her ass. Ben definitely won and will be in the finale. The ghost jury decides who will be the other competitor in the finale. This should be interesting. It really depends on how many are in the jury and if they admire Jay more for playing the game well or if they hate his guts more.
PS: Oh, the Ghost Jury consists of all 13 crew that were cut adrift.
