I am a huge fan of Beowulf, but I learned a few things about the legend from this show that I didn't already know. I am also a huge fan of Lord of the Rings, and likewise the Tolkien episode of Clash of the Gods revealed some things about Tolkien's mythology that I did not understand previously. This show has helped me to understand the Odyssey and Iliad like I never have before, and Thor the Norse god of thunder is a totally bad dude.
Be entertained. Baptize yourself in the flowing blood of the gods. You may just learn something along the way.
Acting is not the focus here. Indeed, you could hardly call non-speaking roles, with narration explaining them "acting." But the visuals are better than merely being told what the story is, and I do like the narration. I think it adds to the overall experience of the show, instead of detracting from it. It is far too easy to label something as "derivative" or say it's been done before. You would be hard pressed to find any concept that hasn't been done before. Execution is key, and the History Channel really seems to excel at this. The interviews from scholars, historians, and professors really give interesting background to tales many have heard before.Read more ›
