Golan and Peter

"Dig" review by Suzanne 3/2/15
Premieres Thursday, March 5 on USA 10/9c

USA sent me the first three episodes of this show. Usually, I like their shows. I had high hopes for this one because when I read about it, it sounded a little bit like Indiana Jones. Also, I really like Anne Heche (from lots of shows) and Jason Isaacs (from his work on "Awake"). Finally, it's from Tim Kring, who brought us great shows like "Heroes" and "Crossing Jordan."

Unfortunately, this show is more like Kring's show "Touch" in that it has lots of religious stuff and has a very intricate plot that's hard to follow, and conspiracies. Also, it doesn't appear to be as good as that one. The first episode drags terribly and is kind of boring. It gets better toward the end. The second episode is better. It is somewhat interesting but there are just too many confusing mysteries, too many chase scenes etc. and they don't really develop the characters very well. I just don't care about most of them.

An FBI guy named Peter (Isaacs) is living and working in Jerusalem. He's really messed-up because his daughter died, and he's sleeping with his superior (Heche). He teams up with Golan, a local cop (Ori Pfeffer) to solve a young woman's murder. Peter and she had met right before her death, and he quickly learns that her death is somehow involved with this big mystery that has to do with this soldier's breast plate from the time of Jesus, that he somehow used to communicate with God (I didn't really follow that part). They found the breastplate but there are missing jewels. A major character is secretly working with some of the religious whackos that want to find the jewels, for whatever reason.

Meanwhile, a young boy (possibly a clone) is being raised by some preacher in Arizona or New Mexico, but he's in league with a rabbi and other whacko religious people. The boy murders a young calf, and calves are somehow very important to this whole mystery. A young Jewish man has a pet calf that he's escorting, too. It's all connected with this young woman, and an archaeological dig in the desert in Jerusalem, and the number 19.

Got all that? Right, me, neither. Sorry, I probably won't bother watching the rest unless I've heard that they really sped things up in future episodes or explain things better. I don't mind a good mystery, but I don't like being so confused. It's more like a TV copy of "The DaVinci Code" than it is anything remotely like "Raiders of the Lost Ark." Not as good as "The DaVinci Code," though, and no one as likable as Tom Hanks.

I don't hate it, and I'd watch it if there weren't a million other things I like better. It's just not worth my time.
