The Detectorists (Comedy/British Mini-Series – Starring Mackenzie Crook and Toby Jones)
Andy and Lance are members of the DMDC, the Danebury Metal Detectors Club.  They like to spend their free time searching the countryside for an ancient Saxton ship burial but mostly find pop-tops, Matchbox cars and buttons.  Andy is finding balancing his love of his hobby and the love of his girlfriend and realizes he may need to make some hard decisions.  Lance is still helping his ex-wife (and thereby her new husband) with issues in her life and has to wonder if he’s being taken advantage of along the way.  Things come to a head when the Antiquisearchers, a rival club of detectorists, starts searching the land Andy and Lance got special permission to search.
In a word, charming.  Watching these six thirty-minute segments you really become fond of Andy and Lance and want them to find something, anything!, important.  At the core it’s a quirky group of people experiencing life and all the curveballs it throws their way.
