Hi, i watched the episode, or part of it, that they did on the gold coast beach. I really hope it is better than that show. It was woeful, in my opinion. Will watch it and see how they go at jupitor creek, they may have to seed it for the show.

I found the show to be lame
More advertising about the camper that he is in and a cooking show
and a plug for the Nox 800 early on but wait ML are sponsoring the show
Lets hope they(he) will venture where you and I go to find yellow

At least the paint can be colourful and give you enjoyment.
Would be embarrassed to be part of that show, would rather watch Home & Away! Very Happy

I happened to be in my local yesterday when that show was on the TV.
Nice shiny gold sitting just under the surface litter.......basically advertorial and very misrepresentative.

I don’t think that they seeded it,there is big gold there Laughing he said the gold was worth a couple of grand pity you can’t sell it in SA,they didn’t mention that though

What a bullsh!t show, I can't believe Minelab would even be involved in something like this. T22 I think the producers of this rubbish have been doing to much of this T31

OMG, that would have to be the worst prospecting show I have ever watched. I thought Aussie Prospectors was bad, but Tommy takes bad to a new level !  Shocked

What a total w**k ! The obviously planted 1.7 ounce nugget just gives newbies false hope, and makes it out to be an easy hobby !

I think Dave Watters has done himself a dis-service being involved with it, and hard to believe that Minelab have put there name to it !  Shocked

I actually posted on Tommy's Facebook page that in my opinion, as a seasoned prospector, it was the worst prospecting show I had ever seen. He deleted the comment and blocked me from making any more comments ! Obviously can't handle criticism ! Flog comes to mind !  Rolling Eyes

When the cash registers rang I stopped watching.This was truly misrepresenting our beloved hobby.It had all the hallmarks of reality TV.I guess Minelab and Coiltek will get a few dollars out of it.

Thanks Dave.
Hmmm. Don't know what to make of that. Maybe he just got lucky. It can happen.
Some helpful tips in there for the newbie.
It is a sponsored show which made it seem like one long advert.

Sure happy I'm not a follower of reality crap and comment on this show, didn't watch it but I get the picture. (No pun)
Dave, what about getting V to edit all your videos and any others she can get from real people and put them together to show what life is really like, with out the bulls**t in the gold fields?
It would be a forum hit....

Your right Nightjar, most if not all the "reality" TV is make believe. Must be for some kind of poor entertainment value.

Hey if all our videos and nugget finds were edited and put together I would be in danger of being poached for some kind of "reality" TV show, and that's just not on. Laughing Laughing Laughing
