Treasure Hunters

DH and I both like reality TV programming, but I watch it much more than he does. I mean, we watch a lot. There are the standards: Survivor and Amazing Race, even Big Brother. Then we watch most of the reality shows on A & E. Yes, we're talking about Dog the Bounty Hunter, King of Cars, and Inked. Used to love American Casino (was that on Discovery?) and Family Plots. Screw them for canceling Family Plots! Waiting to find out where Flip this House ends up. Anyway, you get the picture.

So, we've heard about Treasure Hunters, but last night was the first night we were able to sit down and get caught up on it. Love the DVR. I'm not gonna go into great detail, because my memory sucks, but I will hit my highlights.

First and foremost, from the website, I really wanted to like those Hanlons. I love me some rednecks, and I'm from Texas, so let's root for the home team, right? Uhm, maybe not. Those guys seemed so out of their league, just not even playing the same game! Looking under trash cans, and leaving to get a hamburger. What's that all about? And not honestly and humbly confused, but convinced that their lame brain assumptions are correct. Adamant about it. Arrogant even. And butt wrong. It was sad.

Liked the Browns, but did those guys know it was gonna be a race? Where they were gonna have to move and stuff? Cause they didn't seem like they were prepared to be getting places under their own steam. I'm a big girl, and let me tell you, that is the number one reason you will not see me applying for a reality show. I can't run. Can only walk fast for a few minutes. Can not climb a mountain. So, love those Browns, but were they expecting super powers to be handed out at the beginning?

Those were the two that stuck out for me this week; stay tuned.
