When a show keeps settling for ready-made tropes, that's a bad omen.

They should have called it "Run."

Dig is being touted as a 10-episode event series, and while it has its moments, it feels like it's trying to be too many things at once and not being quite enough of any of them to be compelling.

It's so murky and convoluted that following it requires a lot of work -- far too much work for something so flat-out ridiculous.

Describing exactly what's going on in Dig may be a tougher challenge than staying awake throughout Thursday's all-important place-setter.

The problem arises when these plots become so intricate, and lurk so far beneath the surface, that many viewers will just put down the shovel and decide it's not worth the effort to follow them.

Tim Kring and Gideon Raff teamed to create this 10-episode miniseries, and while they're smart enough to acknowledge their debt to Raiders of the Lost Ark, they aren't able to match their source material.

Entertaining but a little too slack for its own good, Dig is perfectly diverting, high-octane fun that's just a few turns of a scribe's screwdriver away from taut and gripping appointment television.

Mar 4, 2015 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

What might have been a tightly woven tale about an archaeological dig beneath the city (of Jerusalem) has sprawled into the kind of End of Days tale that reaches for epic scope, but comes across as a lot of hot air.

There's one thing for certain: Jason Isaacs was born to play an action hero.

    Jason Isaacs deserves better than this contrived and convoluted nonsense.

    Tegnap este sorozatmustrába kezdtem. Ez volt az els? és az els? epizód bejött. Kedvelem a vallási témájú misztikus filmeket, és ez a keményebb fajtából valónak t?nik. Kicsit fáj, hogy Anne Heche úgy néz ki benne, mint egy viaszbábú, de hát régen volt már a 7 nap 7 éjszaka (17 éve vazze').

    An intriguing program that in the early stages does not seem to give away much but offers up enough to make you want to keep watching.

    If you took two parts Indiana Jones and one part James Bond you'd end up with Dig, although, this series isn't nearly as legendary those inspirational ingredients.....but then again, what is? I really enjoyed season one as brought action and well thought out twists with geopolitical/biblical intrigue. I've always been a sucker for the "biblical archaeological thriller" genre and Dig hit my sweet spot. It seems that the only negative reviews have come from those didn't make it beyond episode two which is a shame. The final episode left an aftertaste of haste which was likely due to USA being on the fence for season two. Hopefully they can devise an equally intriguing plot coupled with long term confidence in this series.

    I am amazed that only a few like this show..Great plot, fantastic acting, wonderful seens of the Holy Land..a real thriller...is this show too complicated for the dim, mindless public school educated nit-wits ,who have an attention span of a 3 year old?? I dig the dig.

    I really enjoy this show

    Watched one episode and a small portion of the second one... all the while asking "What the hell is going on here?" Then I figured out how to delete it from our que!

    Dig's potential is very poorly executed and drawn out.
