I hadn’t heard anything or didn’t know anything about this show before I watched it but kept seeing it pop up so I read a brief description before deciding to give it a go.
It’s more of a prequel to what we generally know about Greek mythology; for example Hercules an alcoholic, gambler and generally shies away from confrontations.
We also get introduced to people like Medusa but before the whole turning people into stone and the snake hair thing.
It has a good story, a good cast with the most notable being Mark Addy (Game of Thrones and A Knight’s Tale) and Juliet Stevenson (Bend It Like Beckham) and some pretty good special effects.
It’s worth a watch but I couldn’t see myself watching Series 1 again but will definitely be tuning in to watch Series 2.
