Ot the heartwarming comedy with Mike Meyers and Eddie Murphy playing a couple of diggers trying to rectify a glaring error in a context record sheet, and the hysterical antics as they try to convince the Project Officer to let them have the site pencil rubber...

Yes, oh the fun to be had with americans when using the word 'rubber'......

(Glad I wasn't completely imagining the review on R4. It was very supportive of the program.)

Ah, the joys of double entry book keeping - far more relevant to archaeology than the world of accounting now, no-one seems to do it anymore!

Its a shame that Mike did not return.. his input and reasons for liking the programme would have been welcome, its nice to have a balance....given the honest opinions previously given.

I agree - maybe it's your footer quote...... [:p]

In the meantime though, I think it would be untrue for me to say I don't like the programme. Actually, taken as a bit of tv drama, it's OK. I almost never watch TV at all, so it's done pretty well by getting me to watch. I just don't think it's that accurate to archaeology and the way it's practiced in the commercial sphere in the UK. But hey, like I said before, no TV drama ever is.

(Maybe the last episode will prove to be a dream when someone comes out of the shower, ala Dallas? and they'll all go to site and record tree throws?) [:p]

On a positive note, maybe archaeology will have taken over from police shows in 20 years time (alternatively, we'll all be watching Double Entry! - swash-buckling adventure on the wide accountant-sea.)

Don't make me destroy you, Curator

Double entry has probably been used a few times already for non accountant-based drama.

quick... hide

Well, after tonight's showing I'll have watched every episode of this car crash so called drama. I'm not bragging.[:0] The show by itself is every bit as bad as I imagined and hoped for, yet dissapointingly not terribly entertaining. For the record I don't give a fig for it's archaeological accuracy. It's just terribly written, acted, you name it's bad.

[u]But</u>

The programme, combined with this discussion, the Britarch one, the reviews, Mr Horton's defence of the show, and now Mike Pitts wading in. WOW. great entertainment. :face-approve:
Gin ready...
Wine ready
Cider ready

I may even enjoy this..

Any more defence - its like saying... Chariot of the Gods... I think it is a seminal textbook of human evolution and early civilisation - its the defences I find the most entertaining. How very dare we..

I weep... I weep with frustration. if this had been Torchwood or Dr Who.. I would have just not watched it... this was not even as accurate as the Bill or Holby... it was not even good fantasy.. it was just bad.. bad. bad bad

My one great chuckle was the consultant - called Scott Wilson (shurely shome mishtake)

the detectorists in a booble hat (oops freudian bonekicker slip) !
the sword that breaks... ah well... best drown meself!
trading excaliber?
hiding boxes under a tKMax carpet ?
hiding anything under the floor of a nursing home... er... how...
could I go on?

No... in the words of Magwump

This ends here!

now.. back to the reality ....... you don't see that much in the media?
