PRESS RELEASE

While serving as technical advisors on a movie, Sydney and Nigel discover relics that belonged to Egyptian Pharaoh Amun the Second, whose treasure-laden burial chamber was thought to have never been found. But why are the priceless artifacts he wanted to take into the afterlife on a film set in London, England? It's off to the pyramids to unravel the mystery of a decades-old theft -- and double-cross.



THINGS TO LOOK OUT FOR

11-05-01. From AdamJnn4. Daniel Kash who played Omar Nassim in "The Reel Thing" also plays Hakim in "Star of Nadir".

From Rochelle Seth. Let me first say that I really enjoy the show. But, I did watch the Jan. 20/01 episode where the relics of Anun II's tomb get accidentally shipped to England. One thing I must comment on is that Sidney's assistant Christian kept repeatedly touching the artefacts WITH HIS BARE HANDS. To keep the show authentic, it is imperative that ancient artefacts never be touched with one's bare hands as the acid in the fingertips and hands can corrode the artefact to the point of irreprarable damage. Anyone who has ever dealt with historical pieces knows this. Also, towards the end of this episode the camera panned across the room of either props or museum artefacts up to the top shelf where Anun II's corpse was. If it was a museum, all of the pieces needed to be tagged and numbered, as this is how museums ascession historical pieces that are kept in storage. If it was the prop room, forgive me for my error. Anyways, I don't want to be one of those people who point out little mistakes in shows, but I thought this one had to be made to your attention. If you wish to reply to my comments, please feel free to e-mail me.

From John Rauchert. While serving as technical advisors on a movie, Sydney and Nigel discover relics that belonged to Egyptian Pharaoh Amun the Second. I find it funny that in a show about technical advisors on a movie ensuing consistency that apparently the shows own advisors are not up to snuff. They didn't catch that the corpse found in the tomb which had been there since 1924, was wearing a Timex. A quick search of http://www.timexpo.com/ shows that the Timex Trademark was not registered until 1945 and that the first Timex-branded watches did not come out until 1950. If the wearer had been there since 1924 it is more likely it would have worn an Ingersoll and I am not sure they made a wrist watch at that time.
