I really love this show. The actors are great. I would watch this over and over. The only thing is, they need to add the other seasons. I started watching it again and couldn't finish the show because only one season is available. Google please add the rest.

Very fun, if not very faithful representation of greek/roman mythology. Episodic adventures, monster of the week style adventure. Mostly shallow, popcorn mellow drama, that's not above making fun of itself.
