I can't believe I've never seen this show!!
Treasure hunter, story teller, past seeker, ghost hunter, comedian, and all around fun guy. I've been binge watching these the last few days and can't believe there's 10 seasons to watch! I guess I'll be keeping my Discovery+ addon. What rock have I been hiding under. I'm your new biggest fan Josh Gates!

A great idea for a reality series
I was drawn into watching the first three episodes by the promise of discovery and adventure.....but I must say that the star of the show, complete with a degree in archaeology, is acting more like a frightened elementary school kid than a professional explorer! I cringe with disappointment at every turn, as he bumbles and stumbles through jungles and tunnels, not bringing any gear or experience with him. His claustrophobia and child-like fear will certainly prevent him from making any substantial discoveries at all. It's embarrassing to watch. Is this designed to be a comedy? Because it fails at that too. What a great idea for a show, if the producers could just find a real explorer who isn't afraid of his own shadow, to lead us on the adventures. These are places most of us will never have a chance to go, and he is making a spoof of it all.
