5.0 out of 5 stars Clash of the Gods: The Complete Season One December 31, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD set is a fantastic teaching tool. I teach 9th grade and the 2 sections about Odysseus and his journey match our textbook exactly. It is a wonderful visual review for my students and helps explain the chronology in an effective way. Also, the section on Hades is helpful, as it explains how control was divided, and the three "levels" of the underworld, as it reinforces subject matter I have already taught. This set is a bargain for only about $30.00.

4.0 out of 5 stars Badly made but highly entertaining and educational August 29, 2011
Format:DVD
Clash of the Gods has horrible acting, cheap special effects, and uses the same footage over and over and over. But in spite of those very considerable flaws it is a very good show. Each episode focuses on either a deity or a legend, telling the basic story with the major emphasis being on both violence and sex. Ancient myths are usually told today in such a sanitized way that they are boring, but the truth is that those old tales are filled to the brim with extreme sex and violence. When a show tells the stories without shying away from the sex and violence the stories are much more entertaining and meaningful.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ye Gawds! May 3, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A docu-drama of sorts. I enjoyed the insight of those presenters and the clarification on various points that I may have forgotten from High School. I did find the acting a bit stiff even for a Documentary but it accomplished the task. This would be a good intro for a freshman in HS who is not sure what to make of the Greek Gods of old. It may help inspire them to read and learn more. I would buy again as a gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clash is a great teaching resource June 12, 2010

I teach Latin in Middle School. Clash of the Gods is a great aide to explaining the workings of mythology to teenagers. It most definately holds their interest while at the same time conveying a great deal of information.

4.0 out of 5 stars on the whole excellent January 22, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am a high school teacher and my kids on the whole liked this series a lot and learned a great deal. I was actually surprised that the talking head professors who were interspersed into the action did not turn most teenagers off. I come at this with a classical perspective (I'm a Latin teacher) and my one serious qualm was that the production did not address the fact that there are usually several versions of the same myth; there is in fact no one canonical version, contrary to what this series implies. Different authorities give different versions of the stories. But I think this is a relatively minor proviso considering how much the series offers.

1.0 out of 5 stars Clash of the Gods July 25, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I came to the Clash of the Gods late (long after it originally came out), and looking for some additional video to supplement my university lectures on mythology I decided to purchase it. I had no illusions about the likely flaws in the production (in other words, I assumed it would not be state-of-the-art cinema), but I hoped it would be better than students listening to a talking head. Unfortunately, this aspect was worse than I expected. It basically consists of an actor with his beard, bare chest, animal fur clothes and ridiculous face make-up trying to have as godlike an expression as possible as the camera shows different angles of him standing and staring (the females were similar). The animated parts were also far from current computer abilities. Still, this was not enough of a flaw to cause me not to use the videos (we all know videos for classroom use are not likely to have the high level production values as those of Hollywood--though there are some that do). What was really, really, really bad about this collection was the attitude taken by the "experts." Have they not heard of contemporary scholarship in mythology, such people as Joseph Campbell? The views expressed were based on assumptions that long ago got overturned, assumptions that myths are nothing more than the beliefs of stupid, primitive people who used them to "explain" the mysteries around them because they were so ignorant. Again and again the experts give smirking comments about those ancient people actually believing the gods literally did various things. There appears to be no understanding of how stories, how the world of "expression," how myths work. Read more ›

By J. Wood
Format:DVD
I find the main review for this series to be exceptionally harsh, and overly negative. Beyond that, it seems to miss the point. Clash of the Gods is, if nothing else, an exceptional educational tool - weaving deftly between complicated mythology and historical fact and joining it all together in 45 minute segments. The point of the show is to not merely retell the myths, although that sort of thing plays a significant role, but to provide examples of how stories are rooted in the beliefs, hopes, fears, triumphs and failures of humanity as well as how all of it is shaped by History. When there were no movies, or television shows - when science was in its infancy and the world was a largely terrifying place, people needed to have reasons for the things that occurred during their daily lives. They needed entertainment too, and these tales served them very well as both. Finding inspiration in reality to create something much larger than themselves in order to give their lives a greater meaning that they felt was otherwise beyond their reach.

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.
