I didn't exactly love it, but it's got potential.
Thematically, it was amazing. The producers spared no expense.
The "pirate court" is pretty cool. I like how there is always going to be somebody going up against the captain.
My only complaint is that I'm having a hard time getting into their "quest." It reminds me of Treasure Hunters, and we all know how bad that show was. It's the interpersonal stuff that makes the shows good - and they need some more of that.
As for the guy who got voted off.... he was so incredibly anti-social that it was creepy. I'm very glad to see him go.
