Indiana Jones may not be real, but adventurer Josh Gates comes pretty close. His globe-trekking diary Expedition Unknown delves deep into his many journeys of discovery.
Gates travels to the ends of the earth, sometimes literally, as he tries to uncover the secrets behind myths, legends, and fables. He’s unafraid as he goes searching for cities made of gold, crystal skulls, cursed bells, tombs of kings, and yes, even Atlantis. Every episode is as exhilarating as it is educational.
Here’s everything you need to stream Expedition Unknown.

Expedition Unknown Reviews
What the critics are saying:
“All in all, I’m a fan of the series. As long as Gates doesn’t go too over the top with the silliness at the expense of locals, continues to keep a skeptical view, and remains ethical in his “expeditions,” I’ll continue to watch as time permits.” –Carl Feagans, Archaeology Review
