    I am surprised that there are no forum posts yet.

    What did viewers think? Not too happy with the whole Knights Templar stuff myself it has been done before. But I'll give it a chance.

    It was an okay episode. It's not the fact that it's about Knights Templar. I believe, each episode will be different.

    I like the cast, so I'll just watch it. Plus it's summer and there is absolutely nothing else on TV :p

    An interesting idea, quite liked the archeology and some of the characters. However it got a bit over-dramatic, on the run for their lives, swords and burning crosses...

    I had kind of expected the story arc to continue over a few episodes, it seemed to end a bit abruptly without resolving much of the science angle.

    Still gonna watch the rest and see where it goes...

    Very primeval. Troubled older archaeologist, younger assistant and friend, very young student wanting to prove themselves, stuckup boss and lots of adventures. hope this is the start of one of those shows you love for years. Everyone should give it a chance.

    I'm not that impressed. It's a little too Indiana Jones, Relic Hunter. But I'm definitely gonna watch a couple more episodes. I have a feeling this show will grow on me. A lot of them do.

    I also found it rather reminiscent of Relic Hunter but with a marginally more believable storyline. I hope that it will, like a fine wine, improve with age.

    Having seen episode two there does seem to be a story arc in there somewhere. I'm giving it a chance mainly because I quite like the cast.

    I think its developing slowly and it might turn out to be quite good by the end of the series. However the first episode was rushed but the second episode was better. I'm going to watch the whole series before I make a proper decision about it. So far it seems moderately promising.
