BBC's Newest Show, 'Atlantis' Combines Heroes Of Mythology Into One Hell Of An Action Packed Cocktail...


Three Greek legends walk into a bar... yup, that could be the tagline for BBC's newest TV show, Atlantis. There is a young, strapping hero named Jason (of the Argonauts fame) that seems to constantly be on the wrong side of authority. A nerdy philosopher type in Pythagoras, who is the antithesis of Jason physically but seems to be the brains of the operation. And finally we have an aging Hercules, played by Robert Baratheon himself (Mark Addy!) and still kicking ass despite losing his hair. What kind of hi jinks do these three unusual mix of friends plan to get into? We shall see this fall. Check out the first trailer after the jump that introduces you to the boys and gives a glimpse into what shall come this Autumn. It does feel a bit cheesy, but considering BBC's recent track record with genre television I for one will give it a chance...
