This was one of my favorite TV shows and it continues to entertain me on DVD. The two main actors, Tia Carrere and Christien Anholt, are perfect in their roles as a beautiful and tough professor with her brainy sidekick. The relics being hunted have stories surrounding them that add an air of realism to the plots. If you like history and humor, romance and martial arts action, mixed with treasures from around the world, then Relic Hunter is for you. The supporting cast and special guests fill in all the parts that make this a great TV series with competing relic hunters, bad guys, and a capable though self-centered pretty young secretary.
As for previous reviewers comments about grainy pictures on some scenes, and poor packaging for the dvds, I didn't find any of these things to be a problem. In fact I didn't even notice any grainy images, but then I was totally involved in the stories, the action and humor, and of course beautiful Tia. As for the packaging, I had never seen dvds secured in this manner. But once I figured out how to properly replace them after viewing, they all stayed in place, held tightly in their dvd case, with no damage.
Finally, I did follow one reviewer who recommended buying this on Amazon.ca (Canada), because it was considerably cheaper than the set being offered on Amazon in the USA. I bought all three seasons and they all arrived quickly with no extra shipping time coming from Canada to me in Florida. Season 1 was great, now I'm going to start watching Season 2.
