    for someone who doesn't watch a lot of TV because there is not much on that interests me I was surprised by this, it is surprisingly good and everyone I know enjoyed watching it. I would recommend this

    Despite my initial hostility towards the show because it was replacing the beloved Merlin which graced our screens for five years, had nearly identical plot lines and the same co-producers, by the second/third episodes I was shamefully hooked and recommend it for any Sherlock/Merlin/Doctor Who and many light hearted fantasy fans.

    This show is unpretentious and a lot of fun to watch, and is oddly filled with former and current Game of Thrones actors (Mark Addy being the most prevalent). Knowing the Greek myths in and out, I was not expecting to be too surprised by anything happening here... and I am happy to say I was wrong.

    Hercules, Medusa, the minotaur, Andromeda, King Minos, Circe, etc all make appearances,

    Hercules, Medusa, the minotaur, Andromeda, King Minos, Circe, etc all make appearances, but rarely in the way you would expect. The tone of the show is light and family friendly, but there are some great stories and action sequences here... particularly one which brought to mind the late, great, Ray Harryhausen and a particularly iconic battle. I look forward to seeing how the season ends and am happy that Atlantis was renewed for a second season.

    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.
