HIEROGLYPH Journeys to Ancient Egypt

Not sure how to describe Fox’s upcoming HIEROGLYPH other than to call it a sort of historical detective story – and likely early casualty among January’s replacement series.

I don’t really see anything all that interesting in this clip; at least, nothing that hasn’t been done better elsewhere. Since HIEROGLYPH is airing on broadcast TV, it will have any of the extreme violence, bloodshed and copious nudity necessary for it to survive.

Even Fox doesn’t seem to be all that jazzed with HIEROGLYPH; its official capsule description is:

The world of ancient Egypt — a time of magic, Pharaohs, gods and thieves — lives again in FOX’s new adventure series HIEROGLYPH.

Like I said: Meh.
