So, I'm sitting down to watch Treasure Hunters tonight with some friends, and the "previously on" is all about an episode that sure never aired before. (I was watching it on NBC; gotta love Canadian basic cable). The ensuing episode had one team already eliminated (my favorite team, too), while one team that was eliminated before was now in it. Apparently half the country aired the 4th episode, while the other half aired the proper 3rd episode. That's about the most bush league thing I've seen in a long time. My question is, is TH a big enough deal that there will be outrage over this, or will it just matter to 50 people?
I so did not understand what was going on. So I promptly stopped watching about three minutes later.
Last week, the Brown family was gonzo. The Hanlen family beat them out to survive. Suddenly, the H's are gone, and the Browns are still in the game?? I assume the team of girls who had an injured player.. they must have dropped out, so the Browns stayed alive?? I didn't watch long enough to see if the team of girls was still there.
The "Grad Student" team dropped out at the very beginning of the episode and they were replaced with the last team out, the Browns.
I was amused with how completely stupid both of the elder Hanlons were in previous episodes - I mean, leaving *in the middle of an elimination challenge* to go get a burger? But in this episode, they decided that the Browns didn't deserve to be there, so they were sabotaging them any time they could. Well, it came down to the Browns and the Hanlons at the end, and the Browns figured out the combination to the locks on the chests before the Hanlons did (surprise, surprise). So the Hanlons decided to try to look over the Browns' shoulders to steal the combination. But the Browns were'nt having any of it, and the Hanlons got eliminated.
I thought the opening with the Trolls trying to kill Steve and I guess a piece of gum or maybe Gumby only to be saved by a Dinosaur with lazer guns on top of Thomas the Space flying Train was worthy of any great hallucination.
