“The Lost Symbol” is off to a strong start on Peacock.

The streaming giant recently released the show based on the novel of the same name from Dan Brown, and I’m sucked in after one episode. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

I fired it up Tuesday night, and it didn’t disappoint at all.

Now, I should make it known that I’m a huge fan of Brown’s work and I’ve liked the movies with Tom Hanks as Robert Langdon.

So, I’m hardly unbiased. As someone who read the book, I loved the first episode of “The Lost Symbol.”

I remember the ending, but I don’t really remember many of the details, which is allowing me to enter the show with a blank slate.

The plot revolves around Robert Langdon being called to D.C. only to find former mentor Peter Solomon’s hand cut off in the Smithsonian.

From there, the race is on to figure out a series of puzzles and secrets as a sinister villain pulls the strings.

Is it the greatest TV show I’ve ever seen? No, but it has high energy, is fast paced and has kept me guessing through the premiere episode.

I’m very excited to see where we go from here.

You can catch new episodes of “The Lost Symbol” every Thursday on Peacock!
