Is there pirate treasure?
That might actually improve the show...
Your post actually reminds me...
Joe's whole thing is modelling himself after Poe. My issue with this is, other than reciting some vague lines that match up with a couple methods of killing coupled with a dude dressed up like Poe, this show really hasn't done a good job at all of really embracing the mythology.
What I mean is, it would be nice to see a more direct attempt at recreating scenes from the books or at least using them more often as clues, such as giving a line that leads to a clue by looking it up in a particular edition of a book.
Instead, all we get are the occasional wackos reciting lines from books that hint at the method of death right before they start hacking and slashing at random people. That's a lame tie-in.
I know that's not a new idea, but the stuff they're doing isn't good or original enough to bother trying to make it something different. Besides, many serial killers have modeled themselves after others. It wouldn't be out of the question for Joe to use an unoriginal method of messing with Hardy.
