this is the worst with one saving grace
15 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is probably going to to be valuable in several ways but not in the way you think.......first, it has very little to do with science and everything to do with the personalities including and surrounding a fellow named Hawass who has had a strangle hold on Egyptology in Egypt for the last 10 or 12 years.

Hawass is a pretentious, self centered, quite maniacal blow hard with a penchant for hogging the spotlight for discovery in Egyptology in Egypt for himself whenever possible regardless of who actually did the science.....he is also a scientific obstructionist in regard to new ideas and advanced scientific techniques regarding Egyptology.

Unfortunate as well is Hawss' very public, outrageous anti-semitic tirades and racial slurs against black Africans..........he is the worst kind of representative for science in almost every way.

In order to work in Egypt in Egyptology, one must kowtow and do whatever one has to in pleasing Hawass apparently, in order to be allowed to work there........it is a disgrace.....Of course, some may say, look at all he has discovered.........well, if you are the only one allowed the credit then every discovery is yours alone, right?

Basically, while you will glean very little education with this show, you will get to see Hawass in all his vainglory, which i suppose has some value in exposing the grossly pompous and counter-productive Zahi Hawass.......essentially the show is about how everyone involved has to walk on eggshells to avoid upsetting Mr. Hawass.

In the end i guess their is some value in documenting this unbelievable jerk Hawass but after that, I wouldn't bother watching this show.
