Storyline

English archaeology professor 'Dolly' Parton's team handles high-profile (notably relic) finds. Often those prove relevant in the present, as such and/or as symbol for a cause. So the team runs personal danger, on top of their messy love - and other personal lives. Usually the story of the object is mainly told in an opening gambit and the episode's final. Written by KGF Vissers

Over the top but fun.
9 July 2008 | by sacushmanSee all my reviews

If you're the sort who enjoyed "The DaVinci Code" or "National Treasure," you'll probably love this show. The plot of the pilot episode was absurd, but the way the characters reacted was wall crafted and within the realm of the possible.

The social commentary is palpable and perhaps too extreme to be taken seriously. While the first episode may be called by some anti-Christian, the real distinction is drawn between those of any faith who use organized religion as a means of domination and those who actually believe in the (usually peaceful) teachings of the faith.

I was especially drawn to the character of Viv (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) both because she's beautiful and because she is the outsider's bridge to the world of archeology the show supposes to portray ... though I haven't heard of any actual archaeologist recently being hunted by brainwashed, sword swinging thugs, so let's just admit this has as little to do with archeologists as Indiana Jones.
