Written by Matt Federman & Stephen Scaia, Blood & Treasure, which hails from CBS Television Studios, centers on a brilliant antiquities expert and a cunning art thief who team up to catch a ruthless terrorist who funds his attacks through stolen treasure. As they crisscross the globe hunting their target, they unexpectedly find themselves in the center of a 2,000-year-old battle for the cradle of civilization.
A great light hearted action adventure, fighting good over evil with a splash of potential romance and spiked with comedy. A great show with action, multiple mysteries, romance, humor, and suspense. Very enjoyable series! Fast paced, good acting, and some spectacular locales. The story moves along nicely, and the different timelines are beginning to tie in to one another quite nicely. It's witty and funny. Lots of action and chases, nice production values make it look very good. I like the overarching story line running through all the episodes. The actors do a very good job with defining the characters and embracing the differences that makes them work so well together. Its a well written blended show combining history, plots, intrigues, timelines with a bit of a fun side which keeps it all interesting.
The first season was interesting and action packed, as a team (once a couple) try to find a famous stolen sarcophagus. If it continues, I only hope they don’t just keep remaking the same story over and over, with a different treasure involved. There has to be an evolution of the characters, interesting view points of various locations.
Quite knowingly derivative in the tradition of Indiana Jones and Romancing the Stone and a host of other movies and shows, including most recently Hooten and the Lady, with occasional winks to the audience, it is nonetheless quite fun and entertaining most of the time. The two protagonists are attractive and have some chemistry. Quite adequate as mindless summer fun.
I watched one episode of this and while it was definitely entertaining, it was a bit too mindless for me and wasn't really anything special enough to keep me watching. If I didn't have so little time and so many other shows to watch, it'd be a great summer series.
