  • Very bad episode.

    I thought this episode was really bad, it odd how some episodes like the last one are pretty good then you get one like this. Relic Hunter has potential but is not using it which is a real shame. In this episode Sydney attends a high school reunion and meets an old sweetheart. The only problem is that he has come to ask her to help him track down a relic. So she goes along and so does Nigel but they run into a little bit of troble along the way. This episodes stroy did not work end of story, and how does Sydney actually get to teach History with all this running around?moreless
  • Sydney get involved with an old boyfriend to recover a relic from Hawaii.

    Sydney attends her highschool reunion and bumps into her old boyfriend Tony - he is after the Idol of Lono - and he thinks its in Madagascar. Sydney and Tony head off to the island and Nigel meets them there. But after a fight in a bar, Nigel is left behind due to injury. Sydney and Tony go into the jungle - and get in touch with 2 eccentric guys (Jor and Eman) - who lead them to the location of the site of pirates who may have stolen the idol. In the meantime, Dryer is following them and wants to kill them for the Idol. Sydney stops him and he falls over a cliff. Solving some clues, Tony and Sydney realise the Idol may be hidden under one of the pirate's burial site - but on finding the Idol, Jor and Eman bury them underground and run off with the relic. Unfortunately they are killed by Dryer (who did not die) and he runs off to the airport. Sydney and Tony escape, and with Nigel, stop Dryer. Tony places the Idol back in its place in Hawaii.

    This episode is very uneven. There is some character development for Sydney - which is interesting (and funny - Sydney was a cheerleader!). However, there are also some corny scenes which undermine the story. And a good explanation for Jor and Eman suddenly turning on Tony and Sydney is lacking. More unbelievable is Tony placing the Idol in an unprotected spot in Hawaii - when Dryer was perfectly capable of killing anyone for the Idol in the first place!!!moreless
