I watched Episode 10 of Pirate Master online at my desk today, making the random note: Nessa, Kendra, Louie = weak team; Jay Christa Ben - New "triad"; Jay = snake. Stuff like that. I had to laugh at myself though, because there I was taking notes to blog a show that was no longer on the air. Why exactly was I doing this? I still don't know. I blame it on an odd quirk of mine - that strange compulsion I have to finish something that I've started. So, here I am discussing that Titanic of reality shows (probably with myself). This is the task I have set before myself. Here I go. I bet that if this episode had aired, a lot of folks would have really enjoyed tonight's show. The challenge was great. It was grueling. I don't know if they are getting longer as the show progresses or if they just seem that way now that there are fewer players. Regardless, the challenge was great. People actually had to use some smarts to figure out the "bottle in the pipe" clue. There was the arduous trek hauling buckets of water up the mountain. There was a dip into frigid waters beneath a scene-stealing waterfall. This challenge was a toughie! My one beef was that, as usual, it only takes one team to figure out a clue since the other team just steals their answer and proceeds to win. Ben, I'm talking about you. Oh, I have another beef: I hate that they use dive masks to hunt for the underwater clues. That's so not done in true pirate circles. Anyway, kudos to Louie for trying to yank the treasure out of Christa's hands. A true pirate move if I've ever seen one. As for Kendra... what is the matter with this girl that she can't hoof it during the challenges? With her it's always: "Oh, it's a steep hill, I can't make it." "Oh, the water is cold, I can't look for the clue." "Oh, I can't swim." We're getting down to the wire here and some players have earned their keep, and others... not so much. I, like the rest of the crew, have had enough of Kendra. Plus she's kind of a downer. Christa, on the other hand is really winning me over. I honestly didn't pay her much mind before she became captain. There were weeks, even, where she never had a sound bite so you can't blame me for missing her. Especially when there were other more vocal players to draw my attention. (Yes, I'm still mourning the loss of Joe Don.) However, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that with the long-coat-over-bikini look, she may have started a new trend in beach cover-up wear. At this point in my workday, I had to stop watching and tend to other matters, and since I can't access the show at home, I'll have to continue this blog tomorrow after I've seen the end of the episode. This may be a first: the cliff-hanger blog. Or maybe it's a sign that it's time for me to get over that compulsion I mentioned earlier, you know the one about finishing things... sorry folks, but it's a new world. I would, however, like to express my condolences to the family of Cheryl Kosewicz, one of Pirate Master's first "officers," who passed away earlier this week. - RECAP PART TWO - I appreciate all of you who are still reading this blog. Here comes part two. I left off at the point where we found out how much treasure captain sweetbeard took in. $40K, which she split evenly among her four-player team. The sweetbeard moniker, as used by Jay, is a little forced. It's like he's really angling for something (anything) he can use to establish a close relationship with the current captain. Christa seems to be buying it though. She continues to listen, even call upon, Jay for counsel. Why? She has to realize that he can't be trusted, right? I hope so. Christa worked the crew as she did last week for black spot nominations handing them out to Kendra for the fifth time and Nessa who had recently been called into the inner circle or so she thought. When she was unanimously voted out and even before in her speech to the crew, Nessa delivered a punch worthy of her pirate title. I just love that she called out Jay, Ben and Christa for stabbing her in the back. I wish Nessa had called Kendra out for rolling her eyes during Nessa's speech and for grinning with glee when the vote came back. Either Kendra is getting the JD/Azmyth edit now or she's really not as nice as she claims to be. So that's it. Nessa's out. Kendra's off the block for now. Christa is entering her third week as captain. Ben is still there under the radar. Laurel is still Laurel and Jay is one week closer to winning it all. One last thing. If you do get to download the show, check out that spectacular sunset shot at 5:19 during part four. Beautiful. Check out TV Guide's Online Video Guide for more Pirate Master. show less
