Review:
This TV show is a great take on the classic Greek myths of Hercules, Jason and Medusa. It is exciting and very funny, but serious in all the right places. I have a feeling this show could go on to be something great. Already known as the replacement for the much loved Merlin;

and even though Merlin was a wonderful show, this series is a respectful replacement due to how good it was to watch. I was captivated from the beginning to the end and loved the way each episode covered a separate much loved myth.The chemestry between the three leading characters was hilarious and Mark Addy never fails to make me laugh! Jack Donnelly was the perfect hero with room for his chaarcter to grow and Robert Emms was the geeky sidekick who had the answer to everything!
