Great cast - good story
Verified purchase
I purchased this based on the actors. I think this series would have been a failure without such an excellent cast. The story line was good; however, the background music was too dramatic. If you can overlook the unnecessary dramatic music you will like the mystery. There are six episodes; be sure to watch them in sequence as the last episode brings everything full circle.

So close to being good, but just misses
Verified purchase
I liked the premise, but this series missed the mark. For me not enough time on the history of the artifacts and development of characters. Tried to do too much.

Anyone looking for an "Indy" meets "Bones" experience, or even an enjoyable show, will be truly disappointed. It is painfully obvious why this was not renewed; the characters are one dimensional and the supposed archeology work is flawed supposition, not science. The major feeling generated by the series was "who cares." Not entertainment but drudgery.

I really enjoyed this. Too bad it was killed after only 6 episodes. It works just fine on the PC, no multi-region DVD player needed.
