Recommended Posts

Parker has been put on to some Australian gold.  They are great looking nuggets!  We'll have to wait to see how he did it.

The best Australian nugget Parker had was that hottie he used to hang out with. She probably bailed on him...

I doubt many people could put up with him.  He's more entitled than the Queen.

Two letters only to cover this.....BS.    If you believe this, then I have a second hand bridge I can sell you in Sydney.

What does a second hand bridge go for these days?:laugh:    100% scripted but it is entertaining when nothing else is on.

I doubt it's 100% scripted, but I also doubt even more that it's 100% WYSIWYG.

A couple hints:  1) he's not smiling; 2) (apparently) he doesn't say he found these.  Anyone who is trusted to hold that much gold can pose for a camera.  Are the show's promoters going to play it up?  Sure.  Is it ethical?  Maybe in their world.  'Reality TV' is full of people who rationalize their tactics.  There are worse places and people who do a lot more than that.  I'd like to say I wouldn't do it if I were in their shoes, but I'm not (and thankful for that).

I watch the Tuna shows and some others and the bottom line for me is the size of the live tuna.  In what order they were caught and the splicing together of the good weather/bad weather segments to make one 'story' is very distracting.  I just want to see the fish that are caught.

If Parker is holding new nuggets that have not been previously shown or found before this series then I'm glad they did it and they are not fake nuggets.  If they are fake then kick all of them off and Discovery Channel with them.

I bet Parker used one of those radar thing-a-ma-jigs!

That's gold that was found on a lease in Corindhap. The first week they were in Vic and filmed in Creswick (only found a few tiny bits), Corindhap (on a lease) and then filmed some stuff in the Ballarat Gold Museum. They then went down some old mines with the Victorian Historical Mine Shaft Chasers group before heading up to Qld where they are filming now. 

Tyler from Aussie Gold Hunters has joined Parker as well as a new guy named Fred who you will see around Episode 13 of this seasons Gold Rush.

      Friday night I stayed up until 11 PM to watch the second episode of Aussie Gold Hunters.  I had to watch it with mostly volume off because of others sleeping but I'm glad I saw it.  I had seen an ad during Parker's show that it was going to be on but I didn't see the first episode.
      It has been a rather hard show to track down but now I've found a link.

      When I put this link up it says 2015!  I thought it looked old.
      Here is a teaser for the new show:
      I guess I'll need to have Netflix, YouTube premium to see the new show.

      I just asked if it was going to play in the states.  I think I know the answer.
      This season the hunt is bigger than ever with 20 episodes and seven teams of gold hunters - the largest number in the show’s history – embarking on the ultimate treasure quest across the country. These gold hungry crews are driven by the record-breaking price of Australian gold, the increasing number of nuggets being found lying very close to the surface and the unwavering belief that they too could strike it rich and land a monster nugget.

      Saw this on Facebook. Steve, Kevin Hoagland, and Chris. Are you able to get a copy where we can watch the show?

      The local public TV station KCET has put together a series about gold in the Mojave Desert.  I think there are only 3 parts and I have not watched the episodes yet but I have skimmed the online portions and they are fantastic.  I've been to many of the places depicted and now I'll know a lot more about them when I make time to read and watch this history of my gold hunting areas.
