Did You Know?


The Italian Air Force aircraft used to transport Danny, Lexi, and Gwen from Geneva to Rome in this episode is in fact a Royal Norwegian Air Force C-130J Super Hercules that has an Italian Air Force rounded painted on the rear of the fuselage. Italian Air Force roundels are much smaller in reality (historically they were as large as painted in this episode, but have not been so for decades) - presumably to cover the Norwegian rounded beneath. Also, the large "05-11" on the fuselage is presumably to cover the words "Royal Norwegian Air Force" beneath. However, the "5699" on the vertical stabiliser (tail) of the aircraft is the serial number of the aircraft, which was delivered to the Royal Norwegian Air Force in September 2012. See more »

It is Alright, but I Prefer Whiskey Cavalier
22 May 2019 | by tuckerfurguySee all my reviews

The show has a touch of sexual tension between the main characters; somewhat similar to shows like the new Magnum P.I., the Zorro movies (with Antonio Banderas and Catherine Zeta-Jones,) Whiskey Cavalier, Elementary, and on. Beautiful images from historical places. Some of the Indiana Jones, and the National Treasure (with Nicolas Cage) movies' feel of action, adventure, and the mystical. Sad to have to compare it to so many, mostly better works, but it is just about what it feels like watching this - rather as if the writers took a bit from each of the aforementioned and called it Blood & Treasure. Truly, what entertained me most was the Wilhelm Scream shortly into Part 2. I played that several times, just to get a good laugh. As it is season-end for most of the main shows until next fall, I'll likely watch Blood & Treasure, unless something else new comes along that captures my interest more keenly.
