I know you guys usually lap up anything with BBC's name on it..for some reason   Tongue

So here is a trailer for the new Atlantis series,set in Classical er..times
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_itzsxNOfFM

Looks like Jason(Of Golden Fleece and Argonauts fame)is the hero
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01crz36


Quote

A fantasy drama set in a world of legendary heroes and mythical creatures. Far from home and desperate for answers, Jason washes up on the shores of an ancient land. A mysterious place; a world of bull leaping, of snake haired goddesses and of palaces so vast it was said they were built by giants - this is the city of Atlantis. Aided by his two new friends, Pythagoras and Hercules, Jason embarks on a voyage of discovery, and salvation, which sees him brush shoulders with Medusa, come face to face with the Minotaur and even do battle with the dead. Coming soon.

not sure if that is supposed to be Hercules on Jasons Left saywhat

After the dire shit that was Sinbad (a Joint SKY and BBC thing)i can't really say this looks like i will enjoy it

It begins this Autumn on BBC One

the guy behind the main character and to our right looks horribly miscast.  he looks like he should be the whacky friend in an Adam Sandler film.

The latest Sinbad ( they recently finished its run on SyFy )  was one of the worst steaming piles of crap Ive ever seen.  Hopefully this fares better but if that guy you pointed out actually is Hercules then all I can say is WTF?  Hercules is Screech, from Saved By The Bell?

Watched the first two episodes of this and admittedly enjoyed it more than i thought i would,it not a serious type program like GoT,it seems to be more aimed at the teen crowd(its a saturday evening programme)

It does try to play for laughs at Hercules expense,sometimes succeeding sometimes falling flat on its face,Herc seems to be always running away from people or is drunk

Only two episodes in,so hoping some of the characters get fleshed out,especially Hercules and we get some decent set pieces and hopefully the series won't feel cornered because of a shitty budget like Sinbad felt

This had its last episode of Season 1 tonight,overall very unimpressed,it had the potential to be really good but the series never feels as though it progresses and feels as though we are back to the start at the end of each episode


The series started at 7 million people,by the end it had around 5 million..which is still good for the UK(helps that its BBC One Saturday Night),so yeah a new series has been commissioned
