    It's just an Amazing Race knockoff. [16 Jun 2006, p.72]

    The format is so complicated and the contestants so unappealing that the show misses the mark.

    If you've only watched a few episodes of ["The Amazing Race"] but never really appreciated its ability to amaze, tune in for an episode of "Treasure Hunters" and you'll begin to understand just how high "TAR" has set the bar.

    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 »
