Matt Bellows scanned a strange and rare artifact, the Gorgos stone to add to his Cyber Museum. In doing so, the stone disappeared into the myth worlds and the evil God, Gorgos was released wanting revenge on the Gods that trapped him in the stone, by way of erasing and changing the myths. Matt entered the world of the myths to stop him. Matt's two teenage children, Alex and Cleo figured out what happened and are searching for their father. Each time they touch the Cyber Museum screen, they are taken directly into the myth and take on the persona of a person of that time, eg Orpheus. Together, they search for their father, learning more and more about the ancient myths, learning about themselves as well. Written by
I stumbled upon this gem on PBS one Saturday morning while channel surfing. In New England it competes against the usual Saturday morning kiddy fare. All I can say is that IMO it rates up there with best network fantasy dramas.
Two teens desperately trying to rescue their archeologist father, who has disappeared under mysterious circumstances, stumble upon a computer program capable of transporting them into the varied myths that have contributed to the world's civilizations. The writing and production qualities are top notch. From what I've been able to find out online so far there are only 13 episodes completed, and the Canadian based show is currently in its second year of production. I truly hope that it has a long run. The show is entertaining, educational and compelling.
