Disappointing is an understatement
21 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really had high hopes that this would be a good show, but I have to completely agree with the other reviewers who felt that this is trash. I watched the first five minutes of the first show, couldn't take it and tuned to another channel. Later, I decided maybe I ought to give it a second chance, hoping it would get better, so I tuned back in. Again, about five minutes was all I could take. A final tune-in during a commercial break on another show clinched my opinion, and the commercials for the next episode have done nothing to change my opinion. That's how painful this show was to watch, and I say that as someone that really wanted to give it a chance.

This show claims to be a "reality" show following Hawass and his "interns". The problem is that it is very obvious that the events in the show are staged and at least some of the dialog written or at least coached for maximum drama. Some creative editing is nothing new in reality shows, which often edit footage to emphasize drama and controversy, but here it's forced, the drama too unbelievable, and the result is just plain painful and unpleasant to watch.
