About this show

Mackenzie Crook (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Toby Jones (The Hunger Games) strike comedic gold in this critically adored series about two oddballs scouring the English countryside for treasure. If only their characters, Andy and Lance, could be so fortunate. These amateur metal detectorists have an unhealthy fixation on uncovering a fabled trove of buried Saxon loot. Unfortunately, the world of high-stakes metal detecting is surprisingly turbulent, as are their personal lives.

Stick with this show. First few episodes develop slowly and are highly nuanced, but the deeper you get, the more you realize just how strong the writing and the performances are. A brilliant show. You really do begin to care about these characters and how they do their best to plod through life. And at the end you are completely invested in these wonderful, maddeningly funny people.

A beautifully simple and highly emotional British comedy about a metal detecting club in search of historical treasures. Truly moving in the most humble ways, intertwined with all the twists and turns faced in life while remaining light and cheerful.

Refreshingly simple, funny, and charming. It stands out from the current pile of modern dark, crass, and violent TV. Liking forward to season 3.
