The Detectorists

We just got done watching one of the BEST series ever.

The Detectorists is a quirky Brit sort-of comedy, sort-of serious piece about two guys whose lives are built around their love for metal detecting. Coins, cars, trinkets,and a surprising amount of pop caps are the norm, but once in a glorious moment every once in a while --

There's treasure. 

Just to make things interesting, the Danebury Metal Detecting Club is fighting it out with a neighboring club for digging rights on a promising field. The usual mix of girlfriends, ex-wives and complicated relationships.

Plus the promise of something interesting, waiting... just under the ground.

A second season has been okayed -- meanwhile, you can get acquainted via the first season.
