Taichi Hiraga Keaton, the archeologist-hero of this engaging 1998 TV series, works as a globe-trotting insurance investigator and part-time professor. On a Greek Island, he probes the mysterious death of a salvage diver--and breaks up a ring of black market dealers in ancient art. He helps a repentant terrorist escape from a cell in Dusseldorf, and learns about a missing fortune in Russian gold during a blizzard in Poland. With his prominent, Karl Malden-esque nose and understated personality, Keaton is an unlikely adventurer: his demeanor suggests a grown-up Tintin
, rather than an Indiana Jones
. But as he proves in his numerous (and perilous) adventures, Keaton is good man to have on your side in pretty much any situation. (Rated 13 and older, but suitable for viewers two or three years younger: violence, mild profanity, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon
