Czechoslovakia, 1720: A Satan-worshiper escapes from his hunters. Trinity College, 2001: Lucas Blackmer, a babe-magnet, professor and a novelist asks Sydney to help find Vlad Tepes' lost relic. And ...
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
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!!
