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.

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.
