Atlantis - New BBC Series

It starts tomorrow and looks like it had a decent budget.

Unfortunately, it happily describes itself as a 'mash up' of Greek myths and reminds me of both Sinbad and Merlin, which I liked the look of but detested when I actually got to see them. Here's hoping that Atlantis is rather better.

Anyone else going to watch it ?

Awesome. I loved Merlin and I've been wondering what BBC was going to replace it with.

Well, this is on rather later than Merlin. I don't think it is an 'adult' series but it may be a little harder edged than it's predecessor.

I saw some comment somewhere that said "It's a disgrace to Kevin Sorbo to cast this guy."

He should be called Heracles, in any case.

Robert Baratheon as Hercules? I'm cool with that.

Hercules was great in this. "I'm not fat, I'm powerfully built. I'm just big boned." Not sure about the rest of it yet, but I'll probably give the second episode a go.

Really?

That's where your mind went?

Mine lurched straight to Fred Flintstone.

Barney Rubble does remind me of Iolaus though.
