Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Oliver Stone meets Indiana Jones?

The best parts of the show are the beautiful location shots, and Kinga Phillips's ability to keep a straight face while listening to her co-host spin his unlikely yarns. Harmless entertainment as long as you understand how far this is from real archaeology. If a kid is interested in this kind of thing, however, Legend Quest might provide an opportunity to analyze the numerous flaws in reasoning, wild assumptions, and unproven assertions; maybe read up on the topic afterward through more legitimate sources, to see what was being left out.

So bad it's great.

It's like a 60 minute show riddled with 5 minutes of questionable history, and 55 minutes of horrible dialog/commentary. It's hard to describe, but the show's two stars could easily be dropped into a late night infomercial, trying to sell the latest snake-oil. The logical leaps are almost too painful to watch, but too funny to turn off.
