BEAUTIFUL SCENERY AND GREAT ACTING!
7 August 2002 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I unfortunately did not see the series in its entirety, but of what I viewed, I was most impressed. I feel comparisons to 'Xena' or 'Hercules' is without credence. Just because of similarity in era, this surely must NOT dictate that the storylines be relative!

Perhaps an open minded approach, would lend itself to a greater appreciation of the tale at hand. The lack of an over abundance of the normal predictable violence, fields a capacity to hold ones attention, via pure salubrious entertainment and I for one, find that refreshingly welcoming!

I found the actors very believable, in particular the character of 'Drogo'in the episode titled, "The Lotus Eaters", in a scene in the forest with his dad.(or is it??) I am a very hard person to please, where television/movies are concerned, therefore I am perplexed at the negativity of one particular viewers comments! I guess some people are just happy being miserable!

My summary: If you have a chance to catch this wonderful series, please do so and judge for yourself! It is awesome family viewing, with breathtaking scenery and 'Quality' acting!

NICKY of NEW ZEALAND.
