Terrible ACTING, Obviously 99.9% fake, a blind man could tell that. Nobody snaps as fast as Hawass and then milliseconds later gets over it. This is one show the History Channel should can, along with Pawn Stars which is also obviously fake.

This title has:

Too much swearing
age 2+
This program is primarily about the OVER THE TOP ego-maniacal Zahi Hawass, and his seemingly schizophrenic penchant for wielding his authority to brow beat college kids trying to learn about ancient relics. Hawass is so unbearable, that he renders the show almost unwatchable. The best hope is that the season finale will include Hawass suffering a cave-in at an excavation, or shows one of his assistants lashing him to a bedouin's wayward camel with a choke collar and setting it loose across the desert at a full gallop. Trust me, after watching an episode or 2, you will agree...Horrible Horrible Horrible.
