Sydney Fox is a professor but primarily a globe-trotting "relic hunter," looking for ancient artifacts to return to museums and/or the ancestors of the original owner. She's aided by her linguistic assistant Nigel, and occasionally by her somewhat air-headed secretary Claudia. She often ends up battling rival hunters seeking out artifacts for the money. Written by
In this feminized version of Indiana Jones the roles were switched between the genders-a fearless relic hunter is in fact a gorgeous woman and her closest assistant who is shy and clumsy is a man for a change.Roles were reversed to attract the audience. See more »
Loved this show - wish it went more than 3 seasons
I loved this show when it first ran, and wish there had been more than 3 seasons (why did it end so soon - was it too exhausting for the actors?)! I love archaeology (have seen most of the major ruins around the world - 56 countries and counting). Also love Indiana Jones, Tomb Raider, and martial arts, and love that the show had a strong, intelligent, beautiful female lead in Sydney! I also thoroughly enjoyed Nigel, the British sidekick and comedy relief - not an easy part to play! The sets were awesome, the scripts were varied and fun, and they had great guest stars every week. I recently bought the 3 season set and loved it all over again! Wish Tia would come back to TV in that kind of role!!
