Sydney and Nigel travel to Istanbul to investigate the death of one Sydney's friends, a professor who was trying to prove Hercules did exist by finding the Belt of Hippolyte. They soon realize they're facing the Antianeirai - women who fight as men, a group of modern days "Amazons". Written by
The word 'Antianeirai' comes from the Iliad, where it was used to refer to the Amazons. It translates as "those who fight like men". See more »
Ed says to Karen: "Radon is an odorless, colorless gas that's produced by natural breakdown of radium, earth, rock and water." Actually, radon (Rn, atomic number 86) is a naturally occurring *decay* product of uranium (U, atomic number 92), thorium (Th, atomic number 90) *or* radium (Ra, atomic number 88). All four are elements - earth, rock and water aren't. See more »
In the opening scene, we see Hercules fighting the Queen of the Amazons. In 2002, Professor Evans investigates at Istanbul whether Hercules was just a myth or a real, historical person. When Sydney phones Evans, the phone call is suddenly interrupted. Sydney flies to Istanbul (I wonder if she does that more often when somebody just hangs up, how cheap are those flights?) and soon hears about a circle of modern day Amazons who killed Professor Evans. The leader of the Amazons captures Nigel and forces him to find the belt of Hippolyte for them. Sydney tries to save Nigel and get the relic back, but there is only one way to stop an Amazon: to defeat her in battle...
Funny, but weird episode. The Amazon leader is played by Chyna, a WWF wrestler, just what it needs to give credibility to a bizarre character like that.
