Oh, great. Another show that depicts metal detectorists as goons. Just what we need.

I won't be watching it.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

Not just detectorists but everyone involved. The antique dealers land owners to name a few.

I know. You spend decades trying to educate your friends on how to have good manners and good habits to have one episode throw all of that effort into the trash heap of life.

Honey Boo Boo has nothing on this show.

Yes, your right there Seldom!  

   It puts a Blight on a whole lot of people.  

What Irks me the most is like the Gold Mining shows it brings  all sorts of Jerks out thinking there going to make a Killing over night.

They don't bother checking on laws for Facts.   Just  have NO clue as to how go about it and they Jack up everything.  

When you get to your mining claim and it has so many craters it looks like the dark side of the Moon.   BLM ranger waiting in his truck without the Smiley face he usually has.

He and You Both know what you just got Raped but he is obligated to give you a Warning Ticket stating you have 48 hour to correct it.   After all , it is your claim.

Coin shooter go to there favorite haunts and find new signs saying NO METAL DETECTING!  You look over the Park or what ever and it looks like the Martian Gophers have Attacked.

May these kinds of shows never see the light of broadcast over here. Viewed Diggers and American Diggers online some time back and found them extremely irritating, as well as disparaging to our hobby.

That Boom Baby clown makes everyone involved look stupid. The one show I watched he dug up a bunch of rusty medical tools and sold them for 4 grand. Please!!! In good shape with provenance connecting them to a Civil war doctor they might by worth 2 grand on a good day but very doubtful if you could get 1000 dollars.
