  • A shockingly bad attempt to make archaeology a fast paced reality TV show.

    1.0
    I was really looking forward to this new show. Not just because it was about archaeology but because Zahi Hawass is a legend in Egyptology and I was curious to see if he was truly as nasty as rumours hinted.



    In the end I gave up after just 20 minutes. It was pure rubbish. It became obvious it was all rehearsed with some truly disgusting acting by the young "interns". Zahi was in true form - obnoxious and insulting. He was so bad that his behaviour made this show unsuitable for kids. The good was that you did indeed get to see things you would not normally see. Crawling around in tunnels under the Step Pyramid was very interesting.



    I won't be watching any more episodes of this show. It had so much potential as an educational show but instead they have tried to turn it into an epic and controversial action ride.moreless
  • OMG what a lame attempt at making Dr. Zahi Hawass seem the least bit interesting. He, Dr. Hawass, instead comes off as an arrogant, and less than intelligent tyrant.

    OMG what a lame attempt at making Dr. Zahi Hawass seem the least bit interesting. He, Dr. Hawass, instead comes off as an arrogant, and less than intelligent tyrant. I find this show very irritating as it has little to do with archeology and more to do with Dr. Hawass' ego. It is even harder to believe that the film crew and the persons following this man around actually put up with his absurdly inflated ego, extremely loud and rude comments and or actions. Egyptian antiquities are the interesting subjects and Dr. Hawass need not even be in any of the episodes.moreless

    this is really a terrible show on so many levels. first dr. hawass is an arrogant nasty *ss. is it any coincidence both the young women on the show are cute? how about his treatment of that lady archaeologist who needed his hand in helping her walk across difficult terrain. does this man thing he is the be all and end all of all information? i had high hopes for this show when i saw the trailers, but the line "show me the mummy" is the best part of this abysmal tv show. please, someone, pull the plug and put this guy in his place - back in the dark ages of civil behaviour.moreless
