This lighthearted action-adventure has a copycat quality that will be noticeable to anyone who's even loosely acquainted with the Indiana Jones movies. With a debonair leading man and a whip-smart but unpredictable female sidekick, the show plays heavily on their hot-and-cold chemistry while it introduces lists of supporting characters with vacillating motives who mix things up. The historical angle of the story will be intriguing to anyone with an interest in that area, and strong performances from familiar screen faces like Michael James Shaw, John Larroquette, and Fehr help overcome the fact that the show's frequent been-there-done-that feel.

What does work to Blood & Treasure's advantage is that it's a TV series and not a feature film, thus able to capitalize on the inherent suspense that exists between episodes. Add to that the fact that the show obviously doesn't take itself too seriously (there's even an offhanded Indiana Jones reference in the first episode to set the tone) and it's clear that this isn't intended to be a cerebral workout.
