Get VPN, place yourself in the UK and it'll let you in once you join. You may want to use gmail address or similar. 
Just watched it. Have always enjoyed it.
I thought it was very funny

I have watched it too, each to their own .. I found it very boring.
We are all entitled to a point of view, each is valid, but can you expand on WHY you found the episode 'boring'?
I'll tell you why I liked it! The Bafta-winning programme is one of the best sit-coms that I have ever seen, up there with the best and consistent with what we saw in series I and II. The discerning detectorist will identify with many of the situations (at least in the UK), like the fact that they might lose one of their permissions because of proposed development. Even I can identify with that even though I haven't swung a coil for years. Perhaps this fact doesn't resonate with Australian detectorists. Mack's research is first class, as always.

The stained relationship with archaeology and its 'experts' is very clearly (and subtlety) shown. I liked many of the 'in-jokes along the way, but doubt whether the general public (and many within the hobby) will have cottoned on the them. I especially enjoyed the ending where the magpies introduce us to what might be. The metaphor equating those birds with detectorists was very well done, and the music beautiful! Mack alludes to the future of the hobby, its present status and what the future may hold.

There were many funny bits along the way. Most detectorists would have appreciated the discussion about cracks, moisture and depth of penetration. Perhaps I am wrong and it's all in my dirty mind! So, I liked it and have tried to show why I am looking forward to the rest of the series. Bring it on! I loved it ... half-an-hour is too short.

DETECTORISTS EPISODE II TEASER ... AND MORE ... hope you can see it!

Great. Thanks Sandgroper. I just watched the start to make sure the link worked which it did. Hopefully they won’t be removed.  I used half my monthly internet allowance yesterday setting up a phone.  $10 Gb Telstra for extra usage.

Just watched the first episode.  No spoilers.  Great little show.  I'd love to sweep a paddock over there.  On a side note, speaking of data allowance.(Rwork)  Telstra sent me an email today, telling me they had increased my data to 1 TB, for no extra cost.  Considering I use less than 100GB a month, it means little.  The NBN is due here in a month or two.  They're probably trying to offset my disappointment for when my download speed drops dramatically.

You have to watch about 10 seconds of an advertisement before the 'Skip Ad' icon shows.  trouble was, for me, that the screen would then freeze and I had to use the progress bar to go back a few frames to get it to restart.  JohnUK, I, too, love the 'in' jokes.

Yeah, the second episode had ads all throughout it which is a pain in the a$$, but I reckon it's worth it for this show!

Saw the first advert at the beginning of this last Episode 2 , Series 3.

Very funny. Squirrels!

After that, not one single advert, uninterrupted viewing.
