Archeology and CSI
By Catsinacradle from TX on 10/25/2013

Love this series. Combines mysteries and archeology, two of my favourite things. The DVD was at a very nice price with the sale and it arrived very quickly and well packaged. I am very happy with the series and look forward to getting more DVD's from Acorn.

While a bit far fetched, it did provide interest, albeit by time/story shifting.

Like the DVD, reason for buying - Sometimes there is nothing on TV, so I will watch a DVD

 
Fantastic Series.
By Patrick from NE on 9/11/2013

I love the series and wish it had been renewed for a few years. It had an excellent premise, and a wonderful chemistry from the cast. I just thought it was intriguing, as well thought provoking. You will like it.

 
Good to watch...
By Karen from on 2/7/2014

Enjoyable. Good characters. We are glad we bought it. I do understand why it only lasted one season though.

Interesting!
By Nancy from BC on 9/4/2013

I have not watched the entire DVD as yet, but it is an interesting premise with intense drama that develops into hair-raising climaxes.Very well acted and some excellent special effects.

 
Just for fun
By A.R. from MT on 10/11/2012

Contrary to other reviews I read, I enjoyed the series. There was a mystery within a mystery and I liked the various historical incidents and how they were tied in together. I thought the journey of the sword a little contrived, but otherwise it was fun.

 
Only the best it can be!!!!!
By Mac from NY on 2/7/2014

All actors were excellent, stories involved twisting plots. Fun to watch, especially if the past tells what the future will be.....

Things I did not know
By 2ndSwede from CA on 9/30/2014

Good stories with interesting facts and adventure added to it. I'm sorry the series did not continue. Entertainment with history included.

 
Very Enjoyable Series
By Laura from CA on 9/8/2014

We very much enjoyed the series. A little 'National Treasure' with 'Indian Jones' and 'Sherlock Holmes' mixed in. Well-developed characters and interesting stories. We always like Hugh Bonneville!
