Jack Hunter, an archaeologist, planned only to take a picture of a cuneiform tablet from once unsurpassed Mesopotmian metropolis Ugarit in present Syria, but is caught and has to steal it from a private museum in France. He refuses to join his mentor, professor Frederic 'Freddie' Shaffer, who believes the poem is a coded treasure map, on a relic hunt, until his friend is murdered to steal it. Obvious suspect is Syrian artifact trader Ali, so Jack flies to Damascas. There he must accept working with local, US-educated colleague Nadia and her driver Tariq. Their lives are threatened during the long relic quest, for one by common nemesis Albert Littman, but another secret lurks too.Written by

not too much brain power to watch.
It was all a bit silly, but easy watching which didn't tax the brain too much.
I was irritated however, by the number of times the name 'Jack' was shouted out by Nadia. Dear Lord, if you didn't know the hero's name was Jack beforehand then you certainly knew it by the end of the series !! I could almost tell when it was coming, ..... Jaaaaaack, then Jaaaaaaack again, even Litman couldn't say a sentence without using his name.
