    The problem with "Treasure Hunters" is the same problem with "Amazing Race": It just feels like all the competing teams are spinning their wheels by solving clues.
  2. It is obvious in just the first few minutes who the real winners are -- members of the NBC sales department. Collectively, they have taken product placement to new and annoying heights.
  3. "Treasure Hunters" is too flimsy a pillar to help structure NBC's reality-television future.

    Because so many viewers will have seen this kind of reality show before, their minds may start to wander by the second commercial break.
  5. Dull and plodding, "Hunters" is no reality TV treasure.

    The racing around adds up to a chaotic bore without a hint of originality, as well as the most confusing set of rules for a reality show since the first season of "The Mole."

    "Treasure Hunters" is slickly annoying right off the bat.

    I thought this show was fresh in the "Reality" aspect. It at least for the viewers, brought intrique into history. The using logic for I thought this show was fresh in the "Reality" aspect. It at least for the viewers, brought intrique into history. The using logic for solving clues was refreshing. It beats Reality shows, that people watch like Big Brother, that have no plots whatsoever other than to coexist for a few months and drize each other crazy, or Survivor, Lets see how long we can starve, try to start a fire, and eat vile things for money. I think people turn to those type shows to watch the pure moronic souls complain each week, when they signed up knowing full well what was in store. It should be renamed Who is the Morons This Time? At least Treasure Hunters provided some entertainment with knowlege. Only downfall was the finale episode that was live. Full Review »
