To me this is the most underrated out of the three Greek mythology shows, the other two being "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" and "Xena: Warrior Princess". Is it zany? Yeah... Is it wacky? Of course... Is it tacky? Ya bet ya... Is it good entertainment? Yes, yes, yes!!!
People who complain these kind of shows are not being 'historically correct' just don't know what they're saying. We know dragons, giants, monsters, etc., have never existed, not even in Ancient Greece(or do we?), but they are very much a part of Greek mythology. That's what it's all about - myths with a (very)modern twist to them.
