Format: DVD
There is nothing wrong with the video or sound quality of the episodes themselves (although I don't have a high-end audio/video setup, so you may have a different experience). The quality of the DVD menus is not very good. The graphics have an outdated 3D video game look to them, and on the episode menu, the type is blurry and of a style that makes it difficult to read. Since there are only 3 choices (play episode/chapter selection/main menu) it isn't much of an issue. Still, it could have been much better.
None of the episodes are in the order in which they were aired, with 1st and 2nd season mixed up on the same disk. Surpisingly, the premiere episode is not included. For the price, the flaws in the menus didn't bother me as much as the random episode order did.
Relic Hunter was a frequently silly show, and anyone expecting historical accuracy is in for a disappointment. The fight scenes are generally good, Tia Carrere is cool, and Christien Anholt can be funny and charming. It was a campy, fun show that had moments of true awfulness. Thankfully, I didn't see any of the episodes that made me cringe and change the channel on this collection. If you enjoyed the show while it was on the air, I think it's worth it to buy the set.
Here is a list of the episodes included on the disk:
Disk 1: Legend of the Lost, Last of the Mohicas, Fertile Ground, Gypsy Jigsaw, Three Rivers to Cross
Disk 2: Lost Contact, Cross of Voodoo, Roman Holiday, Diamond in the Rough, The Reel Thing
Disk 3: The Book of Love, Out of the Past, Eyes of Toklamanee, Etched in Stone, Run Sydney Run
Disk 4: M.I.A., Love Letter, A Good Year, Nothing But the Truth, The Last Knight
Disk 5: Possessed, Memories of Montmarte, Bonus Material (Interviews with Tia Carrere & Christien Anholt, 'Making of', photo gallery & trailers)

Format: DVD
In production for three seasons from 1999 through 2002, the syndicated television program Relic Hunter features Tia Carrere as Sydney Fox, an archeology professor with a big appetite for adventure. The college instructor, along with her intrepid assistant Nigel Bailey (Christien Anholt), boldly traverse the globe, uncovering mysteries and seeking lost artifacts. This "best of" compilation of contains a selection of 22 episodes from the 44 produced during the first two seasons.

Relic Hunter is light-hearted adventure, that doesn't take things too seriously. Do not expect rigid scientific or historical accuracy. Often just a thread of historical fact is taken, and woven into a modern day adventure. Once the quest has begun, each episode unfolds in mostly formulaic fashion, taking twists and turns that while not always logical, are frequently exciting, often humorous, and just plain fun. Lots of action, and in the end usually nobody gets hurt too badly.

Tia Carrere has the charisma and presence to make her credible as a female Indiana Jones. She's athletic, intelligent and sexy. Trained in martial arts, she takes on physically demanding tasks with enthusiasm, and looks damn good doing so.

The complementary relationship between the two leads helps makes this drama a success. While Ms. Fox is definitely a woman of action, Nigel Bailey is more demure. The show's producers were looking for a "Hugh Grant" type, and with Mr. Anholt they got exactly that. His character, while far from physically commanding, has other strengths, and is a hardy and loyal companion. Clearly recognizing his limitations, he leaves the bulk of the fighting to Sydney, but when it comes to translating some obscure language, Nigel is definitely your man.

Historically accurate? No. Fun? Yes. I wish all of the episodes had been released in order, but since I never saw the show on TV, it was good enough for me. There is one "recap" episode that airs out of order --- with scenes of action taking place on a later DVD! That one was bad. But overall a good set, something the whole family can enjoy, with the occasional racy scene, "I'm not going to massage it!"
Tia really carries this show (Christian is a good actor, too), and if you like her, you'll like this.
