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

So Bad it's Good
18 July 2012 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

If you're hoping for an accurate account of history, or a spellbinding mystery, then this show will disappoint. If you want to have a fun, pointless show with strange plot points, poor directing and comical characters, then this show is perfect. The mysteries aren't that good, the older professor is a sexist pig and i think the young girl is only there so that she can ask questions so that the plot can be explained to the audience. An absolute riot, if you have a sense of humour.

It's the kind of show to watch with a group of friends that know little of history to find it interesting, or those that know so much, that the plots are awful. This is the kind of show that makes America's "Relic Hunter" look like a documentary.
