Watching some of the later episodes as an adult I was surprised at how much of its darker subtext it was beginning to explore. Ja-kal dealing with his family being torn apart by his duty in the episodes with his brother. Nefer-tina trying to deal with the isolation of their duties in 'True Believer'. Adding to that an old interview I read where the creators wanted to have Amanda discover Presley's secret in the second season and have Presley turn 13, making him a man in the eyes of the mummies and not a boy anymore seemed like that would have been a chance for a lot of great character growth for everybody, and it's shame that never happened.
Oh well I guess there's always fanfic and I'll probably try my hand at writing some. Especially because I have something new that I never had watching this show as a kid: I ship a pairing in this fandom now. Rath/Nefer-tina FTW!
