Oak Island Wanabe - but missing most positive elements and includes all bad elements
I have made it thru three episodes, but can't take it anymore. The show tries hard to be like Oak Island, but misses by a wide margin. Unfortunately, it continues all the annoying practices such as lots of repetition, "war room" meetings, grand speculation, and obsession with Knights Templar. In addition, it misses the boat on some of the redeeming value of Oak Island, such as interesting characters, history of the area, and use of other experts and parties to solve problems. Marty and Rick are interesting to watch in using management skills, and interpersonal skills in addressing issues that come up on Oak Island. Civil War Gold is the other extreme, with an an apparent control freak who wants to do everything himself - and thus is not very interesting from any standpoint. The historical topic was what interested me to watch, but I cannot overcome the other negatives to continue.
