Before the SYFY channel became the leaders in genre television, there was an incredible amount of product coming from other countries. New Zealand was giving us the 'HERCULES'/'XENA' franchises and Canada was giving us 'FOREVER KNIGHT' and 'HIGHLANDER'. By the late nineties, France and Canada took over the production of the 'HIGHLANDER' and 'HIGHLANDER-THE RAVEN' series and executive producers Christian Charret and Denis Leroy gave us 'RELIC HUNTER' a muse of the Indiana Jones/Lara Croft mythologies and introducing us to the character of Sydney Fox who as a professor of antiquities at Trinity College has a second life as adventuress extroadinaire. Along with her assistant Nigel, each episode introduces the primary relic by including a 5 minute prologue taking place in past history and then merging the drama into modern times so that our characters can either recover or lose it. Tia Carrere owns the role of Sydney blending femininity and toughness within a blink of an eye. Christian Anholt plays Nigel erratically by playing down his masculinity and being the comic relief, however, the blend works. Lindy Booth plays the hair-brained secretary but disappears after the first season. In some episodes, Sydney meets up with former relic hunter/past lovers and who compete for the said relic. The series credits are very impressive: Brilliant Production Design by Ed Hanna with Tony Thatcher in charge of Production gives the exotic locations and historical flashbacks incredible depth and authenticity; Photography by Bill Wong is fast and busy; and the Music score by Donald Quan should be considered one of the best in genre television. Gaumont television went on to give us many other series such as 'THE QUEEN OF SWORDS' and the Adrian Paul 'TRACKER' series but phased out in the mid 2000's. This first season holds up with the best of the over bloated Hollywood action movies that preceded it and is a must for all action fans. Alliance should be commended by releasing all 22 episodes and didn't take the way out like Koch Entertainment did. If you are going to release a series , don't rely on yourselves to decide what are the best of 66 episodes of three seasons to give to the fans. Release them all and that's what Alliance has done. However, there are no extras and the box set has six discs contained within shoddy plastic trays where they easily plop out and move around so be warned. The quality is full screen and crystal clear with awesome Dolby stereo sound so excuse me while I start on Season two. Whatever you are doing now, Tia, you will always be remembered as Sydney Fox, a character who brought eroticism and no holds barred action to Nineties television. Salute!!!!
