Not a bad show, but not a good one either. It was just lukewarm; not awful enough to be remembered, which was its biggest crime. There were, in fact, some good episodes (the one with the resurrected palace slave stands out), but the scattered bits of wit and clever ideas are buried under some ultra-low cheap production values (especially for Canadian TV, which isn't exactly known for its spit and polish) and overly broad comedy and acting.
If they'd gone for a "Big Wolf On Campus" approach (no laugh track, some actual production value) it could have had a longer and possibly more successful run. There were solid ideas and the fish out of water approach is a TV staple, but I LOVE MUMMY remains a missed opportunity.
