    The religious overlap--both Christian and Jewish extremists appear to be involved; the word is still out on the Muslims--lends Dig a certain resonance and depth, just as the location work in Jerusalem gives it authenticity. But in the end, it's about a man who needs to save the world to save himself. Or maybe it's the other way around. Either way, Dig promises to be a whole lot of crazy fun to watch.

  • Jeff Jensen

    Dig is paperback pulp: pretentious junk. Gripping, polished, pretentious junk. [6 Mar 2015, p.76]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Mike Hale

    The channel now has its own competently made, complexly plotted short-season thriller, like just about every other major cable network and streaming-video service.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Nancy DeWolf Smith

    The mind reels from all the action. Most of the time it is an entertaining sensation.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    Tim Kring (“Heroes”) and Gideon Raff (“Homeland”) teamed to create this 10-episode miniseries, and while they’re smart enough to acknowledge their debt to “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” they aren’t able to match their source material.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Margaret Lyons

    Some of the show is effective, especially the parts that double down on anything eerie or particularly ominous.... [But] Too often the series confuses "mysterious" with "dull."

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    Dig is a conspiracy theorist's treasure trove, and scary, to boot. Whether it has a chance on an already drama-packed Thursday probably depends on how much space is left on your DVR.

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    It's sure to make for addictive viewing for the Dan Brown faithful. The rest of us will make a lot of snack runs.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Gail Pennington

    As for the story, it's so murky and convoluted that following it requires a lot of work--far too much work for something so flat-out ridiculous.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Beyond its handsome locations (shooting extensively in Israel) and impressive list of players, Dig keeps referencing the grand forces at work, but also does little to divulge what they are. And while that might be fine for those determined to hunker down for this entire 10-episode event, it can feel a bit tiresome to others still debating whether the show merits such a commitment.

    Variety Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    USA’s new international thriller is fun to watch and makes almost no sense whatsoever.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Jeff Korbelik

    There’s a third storyline involving a cow. Really, I’m not kidding. These, I’m guessing will come together, at some point, but I’m not sure I’ll be willing to wait that long for the payoff.

    The Lincoln Journal Star Full Review
  • James Poniewozik

    All the scripture and trinkets add up to a lifeless series that’s more puzzle than narrative.

    Time Full Review
  • Jason Hughes

    There’s plenty of action, but it comes across as muddled and at least so far is failing to serve the intrigue.

    The Wrap Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    The problem arises when these plots become so intricate, and lurk so far beneath the surface, that many viewers will just put down the shovel and decide it’s not worth the effort to follow them.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    It's one crazy mess of a TV "event series" that doesn't make much effort to clarify what it's about in the early going, plopping viewers into two concurrent plots that will presumably intersect at some point.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    Dig bears the telltale scars of hack TV assembly--a little of this, a little of that, all of it meant to tie together eventually for the viewer who can endure all the hammy setup and self-seriousness (and stale ideas) seen in the first few episodes.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Kristi Turnquist

    Dig spends too much time building ominous atmosphere, and hinting at vast schemes that may change the course of history--that again--and not enough time giving us a reason to stay tuned as he convoluted plot unfolds.

    The Oregonian Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    There’s little rhyme or reason to the way the series jumps between locales and doles out its prevalent plot twists, and that kills most of the desire to see how these disparate narrative threads will eventually converge.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Dan Fienberg

    Gideon Raff and Tim Kring's bungled attempt to somehow dumb down Dan Brown is merely a waste of time and ample talent.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    The convoluted narrative either pulls you in with its layers of intrigue and mystery storytelling OR it pushes you away as it gets so nonsensical and overheated that you give increasingly less of a damn. Dig is way more of the latter, despite the best efforts of a talented cast. I just didn’t care, and I cared less and less as the first three episodes unfolded.

    This thing appears to be going nowhere fast. And it’s already taking way too long to get there.
