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.

Truly Awful, A Real Disappointment.
16 July 2008 | by (Northampton, England) – See all my reviews

My love of History and the strong cast convinced me to watch the first episode of Bonekickers. I didn't expect that much, the trailers and cast interviews, seemed to promise an Indiana Jones rip-off, all be it a low budget one. In fact I would have settled for a low rent National Treasure. As it was, even with my meager expectations, it managed to disappoint.

The awful story, terrible dialogue, criminal waste of an excellent cast, and archaeology that anyone who had ever stumbled across an episode of Time Team would find laughable. This was a truly dreadful program.

Having said all that I still had hope the series would improve, I thought maybe I was being a bit harsh on what after all was meant to be a bit of harmless entertainment. So I decided to watch the second episode before writing my review. Somehow they managed to out do themselves, I would never have believed Bonekickers could get any worse, but they managed it, and now I've wasted two evenings watching this dross.
