Having written this show off as a total waste, - I got a call today from fellow Egyptologist who told me to watch this episode, because the subject matter was beyond belief.
Just when you thought it couldn't get any more ridiculous,
in tonight' segment, the absolutely whiny & clueless Zoe actually PEES right inside the Great Pyramid in front of Hawass.
With twice repeated scenes & closeups of her wet pants & the puddle she was sitting in. Really charming this.
This is not a live show, & if it was for real could easily be edited out.
But no, they have to capitalize on such a fascinating scene that has nothing to do with Egyptology at all.
If these supposed ''STUDENTS '', were really aspiring Egyptologists,, they would not be caught dead on this show,the sheer stupidity of the the whole concept would be their professional ruination. They would be the laughing stock of the entire field.
Oh, & Hawass , of course is shown going quite insane over the whole, totally set up incident. He comes off as even a bigger fool than in the last show,pretty hard to do, but he managed it.
Who the Hell scripts this rubbish ?????
Over 3 million people visit the Great Pyramid a year, & I
doubt very much any of them ever used it as a toilet.
I found this site on the Egyptologist's Forum, where they were denouncing the series.
After seeing it,& finding it to be such a disgrace, I joined the blog so I could write about it.
Not really sure how it works, but if possible I would love to keep on commenting on this pathetic excuse for a show.
It is beneath contempt to those who love Egyptology & take it seriously.
If Howard Carter were alive, he would have died laughing.
Right now, he must be turning in his grave.
WOULD LIKE TO START A FORUM ON THIS DISHONEST & BAD JOKE OF A SERIES.
THIS PROGRAM IS A THORN IN MY SIDE.
BEING AN EGYPTOLOGIST MYSELF, I TAKE GREAT OFFENSE AT SEEING WHAT I RESPECT BEING MADE A MOCKERY OF.
I WOULD LIKE VERY MUCH TO KNOW WHAT OTHER VIEWERS FEEL ABOUT THIS.
Look up ''Florida Box Turtle Hatchlings'' & google the images, it is exactly what you have got there.
He looks healthy enough to me from the photo. Young turtles, [Not Tortoises] are carnivores by nature, & prefer small amounts of canned dog food, or even specially prepared cans of box turtle food,usually sold at Petco, & stores like it. This can be mixed in with all sorts of fresh vegetables.
When they are older, they become omnivores, & will eat just about anything.
At both stages, they like to hunt & will eat insects.
Right now, make sure he has plenty of water, with a shallow bowl big enough so he climb in & soak. He needs to be kept hydrated, even though he is a land turtle. This is crucial to his survival.
If you plan to keep him, he will need heat lamps & a habitat,
easy enough, just go to any good pet store or contact a good Herpetology club & they can tell you how to set him up.
Really nice that you rescued him !!!!!!
This was so bad, it was like a car wreck, you really don't want to look, but you just have to.. The sequences were laughable, the questions the alleged archaeology students were asking were so lame they were an insult to the viewers intelligence, & if this was on the level, Hawass would have dismissed them a long time ago.
Hawass , always given to melodramatics, has a field day here.
Are we really supposed to believe that only he could lift that not very convincing fallen rock off the interns ankle & that she had to wait 5 hours for this privilege ????? And the camera man just stood there & did nothing ?????
Hawass is hanging himself with his hilarious antics on this show. - its a total fraud, & now so is he.
Once it could have been said he acted like fool, but served a purpose for Egypt.
In ''Chasing Mummies'', he is just a very loud mouth fool with no redeeming qualities at all.
