TV GUIDE PROMO

Stewie Harper, un vieil ami et rival de Sydney, s'est à nouveau empêtré dans de drôles d'histoires. Il se rend à l'université en se faisant passer pour un professeur. Mais il a en fait besoin de l'aide de Sydney pour retrouver une relique...

PRESS RELEASE

Sydney's old "friend" and rival Relic Hunter, Stewie Harper (played by special guest star Tony Rosato, who first appeared in the premiere episode of RELIC HUNTER, "Buddha's Bowl"), is up to his usual underhanded tricks when he shows up at the university posing as a visiting professor. He's got a hot lead on an ancient fortune but cannot recover it without Sydney's expertise. Reluctantly, she and Nigel join forces with the little twerp and head off to Sweden to root out the pillaged booty of legendary Viking marauder Jann the Bold. But Stewie's not exactly telling his partners the whole truth, which becomes painfully clear after an encounter with the formidable Swedish Society of Vikings, determined to stop Sydney, Nigel and Stewie - dead in their tracks.

DRESSING DOWN

08-16-01. The gang take a field trip to a nudist colony.

08-16-01. 1st season producer Bill Taub on My 7 2001, posted on the Paramount newsgroup "Relic Hunter" his views on Sydney's propensity for stripping down whenever she can. Click here to read it.



THE HUNT IS AFOOT

08-16-01. 1st season producer Bill Taub on May 7 2001, posted on the Paramount newsgroup "Relic Hunter": "I also did a 'nudist colony' spoof in one episode -- stealing from one of my favorite series, the 'Pink Panther' where all nudity was hidden behind beach balls -- trees --- waiters passing in front, etc. It was done as much for comedy and for me to pay homage to one of my all time favorites."
