    With all the new shows, I like to check out the pilot of each, to see if I like it enough to add it to my DVR. Atlantis did not hold my interest enough for me to watch the next episode. I think it would be good for families.

    Chaotic, this is the right word. A jumble of gods and goddess and semi-gods and and and...makes the whole story very confuse. I've would expected a more reasonable way to introduce and develop each character but the authors seems novice to the TV show world and unable to lead a decent story. Each episode is opened with a new antagonist that very soon or even at the end of the episode isChaotic, this is the right word.

Each episode is opened with a new antagonist that very soon or even at the end of the episode is badly beaten. Shocking the revelation in the last episode. It makes me more disappointed. If the show keeps going on like this it won't last forever... Expand

    Nice little BBC show which should attract young male viewers. It even somewhat attracted this definitely not young male viewer. Simple production values with simple acting add up to a pretty simple, but pretty watchable show. A little bit of Sci-Fi combined with fantasy and mythology add up to this light entertainment. The mythology part of that tried is notable weak. If you use theNice little BBC show which should attract young male viewers. It even somewhat attracted this definitely not young male viewer.

The mythology part of that tried is notable weak. If you use the mythology from this show to try to sound erudite, you're going to sound pretty stupid. For some reason the writers chose to combine multiple mythological (some real) characters with mythological events with absolutely no regard for literary accuracy. Di you know that Jason slew the Minotaur??? Expand

    The show has a world famous setting that is beautifully imagined as a set. The three main characters seem to have good chemistry and the costume and music design are both really impressive. The show's flaws are obvious though. The inclusion of mythical characters that are not convincing can be quite tedious. Jason is not a strong character either and combat scenes are quite pathetic atThe show has a world famous setting that is beautifully imagined as a set.

A decent series that can be quite comedic, it is difficult to see aspirations further than that for the show though. Expand

    As long as you're not a classic mythology purist or looking for something more than a fun, occasionally hilarious sword 'n' sandal romp, Atlantis is a fine, family-friendly addition to BBC America's Supernatural Saturday.

    The cast is charming, and no one has to work very hard.

    Atlantis is almost as cheesy as one of those Syfy Saturday-night horror spoofs.
