Editorial Reviews

Washed up on the mysterious shores of Atlantis, Jason searches for his missing father and stumbles into deadly rituals that test his quick reactions and physical strength. Brace yourself for perilous trials from leaping over charging bulls and fighting the dreaded Minotaur, to surviving the rites of Dionysus and the temptations of a snake-headed goddess. No matter how great the danger, Jason can count on his two new friends, studious Pythagoras and portly Hercules, to lighten the battle with a laugh. You re in for riotous, edge-of-your-seat good times as the indomitable trio brings new life to timeless myths.

Format: Blu-ray
A young man arrives in a legendary city ruled over by a tyrannical monarch, where a mysterious prophet waits in an underground cavern, telling him of his great destiny as a future hero. Throw in a bromance, a rebellious princess, a few CGI beasties, and a new spin on familiar legends, and I've just described "Atlantis".

I've also just described Merlin. This not a coincidence, as both shows share the same producers, writers, directors, and occasionally the same actors. Even some of the sets and sound-effects are the same (fans of the earlier show will instantly recognise that the screams of the Furies are just like the Dorocha). It's pretty clear that this is an attempt to recapture the success of "Merlin", which for the record - isn't a bad thing. Heck, it's good business. The problem lies with the fact that the brains behind "Atlantis" seem to be almost comically misinformed about what made "Merlin" such a success. If anything, all they've done is recycle the *worst* components of its predecessor.

Jason (Jack Donnelly) is a young man searching for his missing father, who takes a submarine down into the depths of the ocean, only to wake up some time later on the shores of a strange beach. He explores further and finds himself in Atlantis, ruled over by King Minos and Queen Pasiphae, and the beautiful Princess Ariadne. Soon enough he makes friends with Hercules and Pythagoras (Mark Addy and Robert Emms) and is told by the Oracle living in the Temple of Poseidon that he's been brought there for a reason - though she will not say what.

Yet having established that Jason has apparently travelled back in time, this is never again brought up.

When I initially stumbled on this show, I was not keen on watching it. The first time I attempted to watch it I turned it off after the first 5 minutes. I gave it another chance and actually found myself loving it. The first 10-15 minutes of the first episode is rather dull and requires that you suspend belief. However, each additional episode gets better, is far more entertaining, and witty. I love the comedy, and the mishmash of the character traits and mythological stories. It makes it far more appealing, refreshing, and entertaining. I love the camaraderie between the characters and the zaniness. I was initially unhappy with this version of Hercules, but I find myself loving his character more and more. This show is a mishmash of Merlin, Once Upon a Time, and Hercules. All in all it is definitely worth watching. If you like the shows Merlin, Once Upon a Time, Xena, Hercules, or the movies Immortals, or Journey to the Center of the Earth then you will like this as well.

Format: DVD
This is a very light-hearted fantasy adventure produced by BBC America as part of its "Supernatural Saturday". It is positively not "edgy" and personally that is just fine by me as I am a bit tired of everything needing to be "edgy". Everyday life is edgy enough, I want to sit down at days end and just relax and be entertained. "Atlantis" pleasantly provides just this opportunity.

Filmed in Wales and Morocco, this is the story of a young (modern day) man named Jason who, in searching for his missing father, unexpectedly arrives on the shores of the not-so-lost city of Atlantis. It seems Jason has a destiny, and together with his new found friends Hercules & Pythagoras, this penniless trio sets out to solve mysteries (Jason's abilities, fate, and his missing father), overcome perilous tasks, perform good deeds and keep Hurcules fed.

There is romance, action, humor, mystery and intrigue. From the palace to the underworld caves of Hades we are introduced weekly to many characters...a noble, slightly out-of-touch king, a scheming queen, a lovelorn princess, an ill-fated hand-maiden, and a mysterious oracle. Without overpowering the story, the show makes good use of CGI to render the occasional mythological (Minotaur, Witch, Desert Furies, Gorgon) creature. And let us not forget Pandora's box.

The show has much to offer should you be looking for some fun, relaxing entertainment. And all information points to it having been renewed for a second season.

This is a fun, lighthearted series that gives a nod and a wink to mythology. The three main characters have great chemistry, and the writing mixes humor with drama. I will definitely be buying the first season on DVD, and I am looking forward to Season 2 - apparently the series is a big hit in the UK and has already been renewed.

It's only been two episodes. I don't think it will hold on to long. The lead character is from 2013, but he doesn't make any references to the time, or talk about his previous life at all. That's unrealistic. You can't move from one culture to another and not want to talk about your life in the previous one. He's on a research ship, piloting a million dollar submarine by himself, but there is no mention how or why. Is he a botanist? An ocean researcher? Treasure explorer? What is he an expert in? If so, why doesn't he use any of his knowledge or talk about it? In the first episode, he's very clumsy with a sword, in the second he's an expert? Really? The writers need to start filing in the holes, or the series won't last. With that said, it is interesting to watch, and I'll watch more to see what happens. But it needs some fleshing out.
