I'm amazed that anyone really thought that Time Team was realistic,
especially in terms of the three days thing.
I like scruffy people (I work in IT, where we don't generally do the shirts
and ties thing) but didn't assume that all archaeologists dressed like
that. However, Mick Aston's jumpers were iconic.
The bit that annoyed me was Tony Robinson having to continue to pretend
that he didn't know anything about archaeology, as the naive link person
for the viewers, when he clearly must have learnt a lot over the years.
I liked Meet the Ancestors, too.
