Seen only episode 3 - The Dark Lords of Hatusha, but it was good!
13 October 2007 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Don't expect anything magical here. It's the same deep narrator voice saying stuff 5 minutes apart while the historical recreations and effects laden music is trying to keep you focused. But the subject here is pretty interesting.

I haven't really seen any of the other episodes, although I plan on finding them in the near future, but I would bet on this being the most interesting. It details the (known) history of the Hatti, a mysterious people that were apparently of European descent and have built a fortress in the middle of nowhere with the single purpose of conquering the world. They almost did it, too, as at some point they were on the same footing with Babylon and Egypt.

But ultimately they failed. They weren't conquered or anything, their ideology failed them. In the end they burned their city and vanished. It really seemed to me like they were some fascists of the ancient world. But most interesting of all is that their entire history disappeared until very recently when people managed to decipher some clay tablets and figure part of what happened. I wonder what the remains of the Hatti did after they abandoned their city. I have a feeling their hidden history might yet reveal interesting bits.
