heads-up on detectorist comedy/drama (- General)

It's on Netflix, it's called "Detectorists", and in my opinion it's absolutely first-rate. It's about a pair of British Detectorists friends in their search for Saxon treasure using minelabs. It is excellent, great acting, great writing, top script & direction, and whoever wrote and created this gem is authentically in the hobby. The details are 100% genuine, right down to the culture and club experience.
It's small, mostly dry humor, but as I said, IMO it's a first rate series regardless of whether it revolved around metal Detectorists or not. It may not be everyone's " cup of tea" , but for me, seeing my hobby as the vehicle for a wonderful show like this is a delight on several levels.
Give it a watch if you have Netflix.

My brother texted me yesterday mentioning the show along with a picture of two crazy looking fellows. He liked it allot, said the same was a very good show.

Don't have Netflix, so I'll make it a point to watch the slow when I visit him next month durning my vacation.

Thanks for sharing, sounds like a show with humor yet not damaging to the hobby.

I think you'll enjoy it, ask your brother for his netflix password, they allow up to 3 users per account.

I think it's time to subscrib to Netflix, and update to a newer TV. Never had cable or other form of pay channels and still use my analog TV with convertor getting the local channels free.

Even though my brother can loan out the password, Would feel uncomfortable using my brothers Netflix password, plus I wouldn't know how to use it if he gave it to me. So, think it's time I contact Netflix for more information and hopefully won't cost an arm and leg. Do look so forward to watching the series Detecterist, hope they continue with a series evey year.

Happy New year!

DVD arrived from UK

The Detecterist DVD arrived yesterday, managed to view the first episode.

Very funny, well planned. Only one gripe, for children's sake some language could have been reworded.

Looking forward to the next episode, have both series hopefully they continue.


Detectorists is an excellent program!

I watched all of the first six episodes and really like the program! Great casting and production and very humorous in that great British style. I would love to see Detectorists run for years to come and hope that it does!

I watched one of the trailers and that alone sold me, plus one of the cast (Toby Jones) I've seen him in movies before very good actor.

I may need to get Netflix, went on UK eBay and they have both series of Detecterist on DVD. Almost ordered the set but these won't play with my DVD player, maybe it's time I upgraded.

Hope the series continues, thanks for sharing your view on the series and happy new year!

Your brother can make multiple profiles on his Netflix account.
You can also watch Netflix on your computer.

If you know how to use bit torrents you can download all episodes.

Thanks Sven,

Spoke to my brother the other night, it mentioned without internet access I probably could not view the series. Recently, Shut off our home computer. And instead added internet to the cell phone, has it's draw back this being one of them but also has its positives not maintaining all the hassle of a home computer.

However, UK eBay sells both Detecterist series or I ordered both series last night. And last night checked the computer to see if it play's UK DVD'S and it does, that's great even though internet is shut down the home computer can still be used to play UK DVD'S.

Thanks again, appreciate the information everything worked out at the end and soon will be watching the Detecterist series :)
