    This show failed to engage the viewer and left no suspense. All too often the teams seemed to get help from off camera when they were struggling to find the clue / hidden chambers.It would have been better to have less teams and focus on the puzzle solving. IF it does come back it needs revamping and a new host.

    It's entertaining at times, but not as good as I thought it would be.

    Pretty entertaining for a show where NOTHING happened. They solved like four clues and the last one took about forty minutes. Let's hope the pace speeds up as the number of teams narrow. Also, I can't stand the teams helping each other. The Hanlons would still be sitting there trying to figure out the combination if the Geniuses hadn't said the numbers aloud.

    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.

    It's just an Amazing Race knockoff. [16 Jun 2006, p.72]
  3. 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.
