I plan on watching the show on Discovery, although I hope it does a better job in its presentation than "Nefertiti Resurrected. "
But I do find it to be very exciting that Hatshepsut's remains have been identified, and think she deserves all the attention that she is getting. I also have no problem with her turning out to be old and fat.....seeing her in such a way restores a bit of the humanity that has been lost by the passage of thousands of years and her being one of the "big dogs" in the history book.
We often have a habit of perceiving the ancients as being larger than life(and it is difficult to see her as anything but), and they become more like legendary characters than real people just like us. Being able to see Maatkare's mortality and vulnerability somehow restores her humanity, taking some of the focus off of her impressive legacy and directing it to an aging, obese woman who suffered from cancer and bad teeth. Does that make any sense at all?
