3. Had a teacher in high school

that made the class read the Readers Digest article about the treasure. He said he thought a student might give him a suggestion to help him solve it. That was 50 years ago.

5. I've watched every episode

At this point I'm more interested in who was there and when than in what treasure there might be.

2. I'm looking forward to the first episode tonight! I never miss it.

I also read the first article about it back in the '60s.

6. I recall reading, back in the 1960s, a "Readers' Digest" article about the legend.

I can not say that I am a believer that any treasure is buried there. The last that I read about the saga was a few years ago. At that time, the dig site was privately owned and no excavation was occurring there.

4. Nothing happened there.

A long time hoax turned into a reality TV series, that's it.

8. Something happened there, I don't doubt that one bit. Figuring out what is

the major goal.
I'd just like to find out what before I shuffle off this mortal coil.

10. Nah, nothing happened there.

Most of the “mystery” is nothing more than unfounded rumor.

9. pretty elaborate hoax

all accomplished 100 to 400 years ago.

Some things are simply wishful thinking... seeing patterns that really aren't manmade... Stories about Templar Knights and treasure or artifact from the Crusades...

but I think it is possible that there was a treasure buried there with an elaborate trap system of box tunnels to flood the chamber where the treasure was kept... only various people have already discovered most, if not all. of what was stored there a long time ago.

11. The hoax was the original Reader's Digest article.

It’s a sink hole. Nothing more.

7. Something happened there....

its just what. They have dates all over the map. I'm just wondering if it was a place for careening or heaving down vessels.

14. I just started watching it

I'm watching on Prime/History and am only at the beginning of season 2. It's interesting to see how modern tech is being used now. Years ago I read a book called The Big Dig (published in 1988), which was about the pit etc. But back then they had none of the new equipment, so it was pretty primitive. It's been so long now, I'm not sure which people were involved with the searching. I would guess it was the Blankenships. I don't buy into the Knights Templar theory or that Shakespeare's papers are there. It's just fascinating to think that someone engineered the whole deal, with the booby traps etc. That's what I want to know about.

I really enjoy the show but the commercials are horrible! Same ones over and over and over! I wish there was a way to skip through them, at least when watching the older episodes, so I could catch up faster.

15. Unless multiple people

over decades are lying there were distinct markers as each 10 foot level.That doesn't happen by accident nor does anybody do that as a scam past the first ten feet...

18. That is part of the hoax and is untrue.

It's a natural sinkhole.
History Channel once ran a special debunking most of the myths.
Of course, now they have a money-making TV show that has found nothing of value in the 6 years it's been on.
