From Amazon.co.uk

For Relic Hunter, star Tia Carrere was approached with the notion of playing "a female Indiana Jones". That perfectly sums up this tongue-in-cheek show. Each episode begins with a historical teaser depicting a relic in its original location and usage. It then gets stolen or lost and the team go hunt for it. Carrere's History Professor Sydney Fox is versed in arcane knowledge, but also knows how to hold her own in a fight. Her foppish assistant Nigel (Christien Anholt) always manages to bumble the search, but then gets helped out by office worker Claudia (Lindy Booth).

That's the winning formula, and this first box set (which starts at the beginning of the second series) consists of six such scenarios. "The Put Back" requires the return of an artefact for a change, and sees the team in Africa racing to prevent the onset of an ancient curse. "Dagger of Death" concerns the Indian cult of Kali (per Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom). "Last of the Mochicas" (not a typo!) sees them survive a plane crash and then play a game of sleuthing to discover which other passenger is their enemy. "The Legend of the Lost" provides a well-intentioned message about why lost civilisations ought to be left lost. "Fertile Ground" comically takes Sydney from her high-school reunion to Hawaii in a partnership with her teenage sweetheart. "Gypsy Jigsaw" finally allows Claudia to shine, with her knowledge of Tarot assisting in a jaunt to Romania. All six feature terrific location shooting from around the globe and are an infectious introduction for anyone who missed the sporadic TV broadcasts.

On the DVD: Relic Hunter comes to disc with the original 16:9 widescreen ratio of the show. Shame there's only a stereo mix, though. There are 12-minute interviews with stars Carrere and Anholt that are a little more informative than the biographies included. Lastly, there's a gallery of 24 behind-the-scenes and promotional stills. --Paul Tonks

At last the first episodes of the show – The Buddha Bowl and Transformation on DVD. Obviously the characters are not as well developed or rounded as later shows and the formula is a little clunky compared to the later episodes but still good fun light-hearted adventure. The episodes them selves are pretty good – here they are hunting two mystical relics the bowl and the scrolls containing the formula to turn metal into gold, as a result the two stories have a magical element as well as the usual villians. Sadly there are no extras on the DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relic Hunter is Real Adventure 19 Feb 2011
Format:DVD
Sydney Fox is an exotic and beautiful spirit who takes us from one adventurous place to another. One can trek her equally exotic world as a female Harrison Ford any girl would emulate. I simply can't get enough of this fantastic feline who makes me proud to be a woman.

These two episodes were a refreshing change from the usual search for ancient relics as the two relics being hunted are fairly modern – A base ball glove and Elvis’s guitar. However the usually elements were also there with a modern twist. Good fun adventures stories though not the strongest in the series and a little heavy with the plot devices - hence only 3 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kick Ass - the real thing. 15 Jun 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you like the "Tomb Raider" franchise then these stories will interest you. Tia Carrera and her side-kick deliver action all the way, including laughs and looks. Although "Relic Hunter" has sometimes been dismissed as "Tomb Raider" on the cheap I think that is an unfair criticism of well made stories with strong plots and characters you can sympathise with, even the bad ones. Highly recommended if you have ever enjoyed these on the television. You should probably watch these first because some of the foes and friends reappear in later stories.
