Expedition Unknown is an engaging and enjoyable series that follows archeologist Josh Gates as he travels the world trying to solve famous mysteries and find artifacts lost in time. Each episode is a self-contained journey of discovery and adventure. Some of the things episodes focus on; Mayans, Amelia Earhart, the Nazca lines, Jesse James, and more.

Josh actually does well as a reality TV host. I wouldn't call what he does acting, but he is entertaining and amusing. Supporting cast and guests did nicely.

Camera work was well done and nicely captured some of the exotic, and difficult, locations in which the episodes took place. There was some added action and drama in the series, but it was mild and for the most part, entertaining. Dialogue was good with Josh doing fairly well at explaining the mysteries he is following. Sound and soundtrack were okay.

If you enjoy the History Channel, Reality TV, or mysteries you should enjoy this series. Episodes are 42 minutes in length so the series works well in short bursts.

Nothing here to limit audience age.
