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.
Like it is a very interesting and enjoyable series.
While a bit far fetched, it did provide interest, albeit by time/story shifting.
it was fun
Like the DVD, reason for buying - Sometimes there is nothing on TV, so I will watch a DVD
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.
Enjoyable. Good characters. We are glad we bought it. I do understand why it only lasted one season though.
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.
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.
All actors were excellent, stories involved twisting plots. Fun to watch, especially if the past tells what the future will be.....
Very good movie.
Good stories with interesting facts and adventure added to it. I'm sorry the series did not continue. Entertainment with history included.
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!
Bought this DVD on a WHIM. Very entertaining and easy on the mind. Good to see actors from other series. Have enjoyed watching Adrian Lester for the Hustle. What an easy night of entertaiment..go for it.
you guys are wonderful thanks
