When Jason set 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 of palaces so vast it was said they were built by giants--this is the lost city of Atlantis. But beneath the surface of this enticing place is a dark and simmering past, a complicated web of treachery and deceit, in which Jason himself now 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, which sees him brush shoulders with Medusa, come face to face with the Minotaur and even do battle with the dead.

I have loved every moment of this series. The characters have really grown on me since the first episode and I am going to miss it so much on a Saturday night. I can't wait to buy the box set when it becomes available and hope like mad a second series will be made. I love the Greek myth elements of the stories and the mystery that surrounds Jason. It has made me laugh, cry and gasp with excitement. I thought it was fantastic.

Although there were some areas that could be improved upon, I think this is a really solid start to a cracking series. You have to give programmes a chance to settle down and hit their stride. I am sure it will go from strength to strength, given the chance. Why people have to comment on their TV license fees being wasted, I don't know. There are a great many programmes that are made that I wouldn't want to sit and watch, but that's how it goes. The BBC make a variety of programmes that will suit all kinds of different tastes. I, for one, am glad that my money went on this offering. May many more series follow!

The episodes are a little dragged out and aren't really that exciting or dramatic (though I have only watched the first 5 episodes). For example, a whole episode watching a baby get passed around between a few people. Another episode about a racing beetle mixed with a women who walks outside the city walls, then changes her mind. There's no excitement or drama at all.

I've always loved Greek Mythology so this series appealed even before I watched it. I wish people would stop comparing it to Merlin. Yes, it has the same writers and I guess the humour is similar and yes it occupies the same slot on a Saturday, but really, if a drama about an axe murderer occupied the same Saturday slot, would that be compared to Merlin too? Atlantis has a slightly darker feel to it, and I really think the writers have skillfully taken several elements of Greek Myths to combine into an original story with all the classic feeling of a Greek myth: quests, heroes, tragedy, love etc. If I wasn't such a Greek Mythology nerd, I wouldn't have known which stories they'd pinched from, and if it gets kids reading the Greek myths, then hats off to it. I suppose if the Merlin comparisons have one thing right, it's that the cast doesn't quite jump out at the viewer the way the Merlin actors did. They really were an amazing set of actors, but the Atlantis cast are just finding their feet. Mark Addy stood out in particular and I really like the writers' take on the Herculese character. Jason is the true hero, of course and I for one enjoyed every second of his screen time. As with any series, be it book or TV show, the first series is always the foundation. Writers use it to experiment with and establish their formula and look back over it at the end to fine tune any mistakes. Atlantis is still finding its feet and some epesodes were better than others but it has plenty of strengths and some twists I never saw coming. In summary, it takes a bit of getting into but I believe it is a promising start and we can expect good things from the second series. I've never yet seen any TV series I loved from the first epesode, not even Merlin.

Format: DVD
In the present Jason determines to discover what happened to his father, missing when exploring the ocean's depths. Suddenly his own bathyscaphe is in trouble. He regains consciousness to find himself whisked back in time to Atlantis, there to make friends with Hercules and Pythagoras.

He is there for a reason, a destiny to fulfil....

In a bonus, creators cheerfully admit they have played fast and loose with myths and history. The series is best enjoyed by those prepared to accept that.

Even so the show is uneven. Visually it stuns, the sets excellent. Sadly the scripts often need more attention. Too many storylines are rather poorly contrived. A major weakness concerns the portrayal of Hercules, the character played for cheap laughs. He seems to have strayed in from a programme intended for very young children (who deserve better). Much time is devoted to sorting out problems caused by his drinking, gambling and laziness. This sets everything off balance, doing the show no favours at all - the reason why I quit watching when the series was first shown.

I hoped acquiring the box set would help me better to appreciate the strengths. It does.

Many assets include an enigmatic oracle, a wicked queen, a handsome (if rather one dimensional) hero, a likeable Pythagoras, great stunts and exciting arena sequences.

13 episodes. An interesting thirty minute bonus.

At their best when more serious, the ingredients exist here for a family show with real impact. Hopefully this will be more evident in Season 2.

I got rather hooked on this fantasy programme.

The important thing is not to get too hung up on historical accuracy and enjoy the interplay between the Jason, Hercules and Pythagoras and their adventures over the 14 episodes.

Those involving Jason's growing romance with Ariadne are very good and my personal favourite is Rules of Engagement.

Overall a good first series and really looking forward to season 2
