The trailers I watched for the new History Channel series "Chasing Mummies" piqued my interest and the "Show me the mummy" play on words brought a smile to my lips. But I'm afraid I was sadly disappointed in at least the first episode that aired Wednesday.
The camera work was amateurish, there appeared to be no formal script and Dr. Hawass was presented as irascible and supremely arrogant. I cannot understand why so many reality show producers think that rudeness and unprofessional outbursts make a show entertaining.
