Legend Quest is SyFy's attempt to create a modern Indiana Jones (with a bit if Dan Brown thrown in for good measure), and is about as historically accurate. Host Ashley Cowie certainly looks the part, right down to the 5 o'clock shadow and the shoulder bag (it's a satchel!) In a half an hour of television, this "archaeological explorer" (whatever that means) seeks to solve the great mysteries that have plagued historians and archaeologists for centuries. Along with him is Kinga Phillips, a buxom "field producer" who's sole purpose is to be a sounding board for Cowie's wild assumptions and theories. Some of his leaps of logic are laughable at best. "Hey, this two headed eagle has wings. The Ark of the Covenant had angels with wings. It must be a clue!".
The show's structure is much like a treasure map. "Take 20 paces to the the south west". One clue leads to another and another. If it were that easy, they would have solved these centuries ago. Rubish.
