OMG, this show moves so slow, and would have to have some of the longest opening credits around.
Relic Hunter is sort of a cross between Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider. The I do like the concept and the stories seem to get stronger as the series goes along. The sets were awesome, the scripts were varied and fun, and they had great guest stars every week. I love that the show had a strong, intelligent, beautiful lead in Sydney. The characters, the stories, and the location are all superb. The best thing about Relic Hunter is that it doesn't take itself too seriously. There's lots of loose humor mixed into the interesting plot lines. The series mingles comedy, suspense, intrigue, tension, action-packed, history and adventure.The fight scenes really above average. Those are well executed. Tia Carrere and Christien Anholt are great actors and have great chemistry, although the characters they play aren't ever romantically linked with each other. What's stellar about this series is it's production. The producers of this series knew what they were doing. The characters, the stories, and the location are all superbly in good taste that holds up to repeat viewing. I like the scenes at the beginning that show what relic or artifact that they are supposed to find. I love watching to see how they will get in and out of close and sometimes death defying scenarios. All in all a very enjoyable show.
