Fun and sympathetic series about two University professors travel all over the world finding lost treasures and ancient relics
21 March 2019 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Sydney Fox (Tia Carrere) is a university professor and black belt who globe-trots all around the world after lost, robbed and rumored to exist strange artifacts , relics , jewels and treasures . Her main passion, however, is adventure , history and antiquities . With her mild-mannered and shy English assistant Nigel (Christen Anholt) , they travel across the world finding lost treasures which have fallen into the wrong hands . Her scholarly brilliant English academic assistant, Nigel Bailey, has his reservations about being dragged along all over the world on most of her treasure hunts . The third and fourth ordinary cast members are their office secretary, who joined during most seasons as the vain airhead as well as little competent Claudia (Lindy Booth) whose wealthy daddy is frightfully well-connected, notably with the chancellor, later the far more expert Karen Petrusky (Tanja Reichert) . Along the way they have to take on several risks , dangers and adventures until reach their aims. As they often end up fighting rival hunters seeking out objects for the money . Beauty. Brains. Black Belt. History Professor, Adventurer, Relic Hunter...

Emotion , fun , and funny adventures with frenetic action series formed by 66 episodes in 3 seasons . Starred by an explosive and sexy archaeologist Sydney Fox/Tia Carrere (66 episodes) and with the help of her faithful assistant from England Nigel Bailey/Christien Anholt (66 episodes) , both of whom moonlight as brave relic hunters. Together they travel around the globe in search for stolen relics to be returned to museum always risking their lives . Thery are well accompanied on some occasion getting to play a more active part , at times , by Lindy Booth as the somewhat air-headed secretary Claudia in 44 episodes, and the gorgeous Tanja Reichert in 22 episodes and in both cases tend to make use of their female charms too .The series mingles comedy , suspense , intrigue , tension , action-packed , pursuits , history and adventures ; and it results to be very amusing and fun . It's a moving and typical action/adventure series in Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider style . It's a run-of-the-mill show , as from the beginning to the end , the unstopped action and the fast movement is continuous . The series was inspired by the success of the video game Tomb Raider , featuring Sydney Fox as Lara Croft's lookalike . Despite the series' worldwide locales, it was actually shot in Uxbridge, Ontario, Canada and Toronto, Ontario, Canada , as the production team rarely left Metropolitan Toronto . There are also several guest stars playing notorious roles throughout the series , such as : Thomas Kretschmann , Tony Rosato , Sara Kestelman , Blu Mankuma ,Jane March , Julie McCullough , Ralph Moller ,Michael Culkin , Ian McNeice , Katheryn Winnick , Claudia Christian , James Faulkner ,Colin Fox , Roger Cross , Tasha de Vasconcelos ,James Callis , Kenneth Colley , Matt Bomer , Nigel Bennett , Nicholas Rowe , Malin Akerman and Simon MacCorkindale , producer too . The series was professionally directed by Paolo Barzman ,John Bell ,Terry Ingram , Ian Toynton ,George Mendeluk, Jeff King , Mark Roper , David Wu , Steve DiMarco , Jorge Montesi , among others . Rating . 6/10 , acceptable and passable series .
