Goofs

When a guard announces that the Greek Navy is approaching, people gets frightened and run everywhere. Among them is a man leading a group of Southern American llamas. Old Worlders did not see llamas before the Spanish conquest of Peru in 1532, and it wasn't until even later when the first live llamas were brought to Europe. Today, llamas are still not common farm animals in Anatolia. See more »

Wow!
12 June 2003 | by (Springfield Mass.) – See all my reviews

This has got to be one of the better miniseries I have seen in a while. The costumes were gorgeous, and the location had one believing that you really were looking at Troy as it may have been.The actors were all excellent, however, one stood out more than the others, and that actor was Rufus Sewell. He brought a certain intensity to the film that I could actually FEEL right in my living room. I was so enamored of this particular film that I have actually put in an order for it as soon as it's released. If you missed it, I feel for you, because, as I said it will draw you in.
