  • The Amazing Adventures of Zahi Hawass - Episode 2 began with a bit of a media circus as Egyptologist Dr. Zahi Hawass proclaimed that the notion of slaves building the pyramids was just legend
  • From watching the first two shows what I know is that the shows give me some good laughs, that Zahi is an egotistical tyrant when it comes to work, and that there is some things to be learned for those who don't know that much about the ancient pyramids

      Chasing Mummies: The Amazing Adventures of Zahi Hawass - Episode 2 began with a bit of a media circus as Egyptologist Dr. Zahi Hawass proclaimed that the notion of slaves building the pyramids was just legend. He goes on to discuss this in more detail with archaeological interns later, explaining more why he believes his theory is correct.

      This so-called documentary series is highly controversial with some claiming that it is


      actually scripted and not a true documentary. From watching the first two shows what I know is that the shows give me some good laughs, that Zahi is an egotistical tyrant when it comes to work, and that there is some things to be learned for those who don’t know that much about the ancient pyramids.

      Zahi Hawass is, well, colorful to say the least. He sometimes reminds me of ...


      • a mad man. He has little tolerance for anyone or anything who doesn’t meet his expectations.

        Viewers do get to see a lot of interesting things, but they have to weigh the surreal happenings with the images seen. Is it worth an hour of one’s time to watch a soap opera in order to get a few minutes of genuine Egypt history.

        A big part of this episode was going to

        the five chambers in the Great Pyramid, which is quite a walk and journey. This is the educational part of the hour, the type of thing that viewers would want to see.

        In my opinion, if you can get over the notion that much of this show is hoopla, hype, and hysterics (perhaps even staged), there’s some interesting things to be seen on this show, but only if you can overlook the ridiculous.
