Mackenzie Crook (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Toby Jones (The Hunger Games) strike comedic gold in this critically adored series about two oddballs scouring the English countryside for treasure. If only their characters, Andy and Lance, could be so fortunate. These amateur metal detectorists have an unhealthy fixation on uncovering a fabled trove of buried Saxon loot. Unfortunately, the world of high-stakes metal detecting is surprisingly turbulent, as are their personal lives. Andy's girlfriend, Becky (Rachael Stirling, The Bletchley Circle), is none too pleased about the amount of time he sinks into his fruitless hobby, and even less so when a female colleague enters the equation. Lance, meanwhile, is still hopelessly in love with his ex-wife-and finds several embarrassing ways to show it. But behind the most excruciating moments lies a winning combination of warmth, eccentricity, and humanity that makes this comedy "indispensable viewing" (The Guardian, UK) and "one of the loveliest, most inventive things on TV all year" (The Daily Mail, UK).
