As you know BBC cancelled Merlin for making Atlantis as a replacement and I for one is pleased to say that they are following the same old traditions as what we saw in Merlin by posting half naked men to attract certain audience. So here's one for Springs and Mouse.

“When Jason sets out to find his father, he could never have anticipated where his journey would lead…


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 palaces so vast it was said they were built by giants – this is the city of Atlantis.


But under the surface of this enticing place is a dark and simmering past, a complicated web of treachery and deceit, with which Jason himself seems inexplicably bound. He soon finds himself embroiled in a perilous game of politics and power from which there is no escape.


Aided by the studious young Pythagoras and the overweight, overbearing 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.”


Atlantis begins this Saturday at 8.25 on BBC1.
 
I saw the preview on our Canadian Sci-Fi station. It did look good, but they're messing the mythology!! Just reading that there's a lot of potential in it, but lets be honest these sorts of things either last or don't last (look at Sinbad). I hope they don't fall into the trap of sacrificing good writing and dialogue for special effects.

edi: He is hot though, I might just watch for him

Whoo-hoo! Time to excruciatingly embarrass my teenage daughter by making comments about him. :D

Cheers, CTG
 
Are they abandoning the other half of the population?


I hope not, but I really need proof.

*cough*

Nope the BBC bosses know for the fact that men doesn't watch fantasy series. So all females can be covered from head to toes with all sorts of things that doesn't suggest anything.

Are you ready to get back to the monster of the week thing?
 
Probably not.


But we'll see.




(Has anyone from the BBC been watching Game of Thrones, I wonder. Not that I'm asking for that sort of treatment pre-watershed, obviously.)
 
I appreciate a well made male torso and quite frankly there is enough well made and mostly naked females already around.

It's not likely we're going to get a particularily strong female characters in this (I don't think we really did in Merlin or Robin Hood IMO - stong to a point but basically there to be saved) with whom I could in some way identify
 
So... it's been on for all of a minute and the acting is appalling! I mean, what awful dialogue.
 
I was just thinking that, why aren't they Greek. I was also wondering why, when he took the clothes, he bothered with the little cuffs. Accessorising, I suppose.
 
And how come he lost all his clothes but not his (presumably very important to the plot) necklace thingie?

(And keeping female viewers happy isnt the answer)
 
Because who doesn't like a bit of random nakedness?

I think Jason and Pythagoras have a thing going on. I can see Pyson. Or uh, Jaythagoras.
 
I did think it didn't look very good!

Just had a nipple shot and a bit of bum crackage.
