Atlantis series 2 episode 2 review: A New Dawn: Part Two

22 November 2014 8:13 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Atlantis continues the strong start made by its series two opener with a battle-heavy episode...

This review contains spoilers.

2.2 A New Dawn Part Two

With the city under attack and Jason trapped in a cave with Pythagoras and Hercules, Pasiphae has the upper hand with her amassed forces clearly outnumbering the best that Atlantis has to offer.

Jason and his companions risk their lives to bring The Palladium home and must escape from the lair of the Cyclops in order to do so, whilst Ariadne must fight enemies from within and without. Pasiphae is confident that Atlantis is hers and, as two armies collide, faith and love are tested, lives are lost and a secret is revealed that must be buried or darkness will fall upon Jason and his adopted home.

The second part of A New Dawn capitalises on the success of the series two opener by giving us »

Crackle has some new spy thriller entertainment coming your way. The online distributor will release its original, feature-length film The Throwaways on its site on December 19, 2014. The film centers around a character named Drew Reynolds (played by Sam Huntington of Being Human and Superman Returns fame), a hacker captured by the CIA and offered either a job with the organization or life in prison. Reynolds joins a “throwaway” group of the CIA’s least-favored agents, including Colonel Christopher Holden (played by James Caan from The Godfather) and combat specialist Dan Fisher (portrayed by Kevin Dillon of Platoon). Together, the three aim to take out a cyber-terrorist bent on destruction. Written by Michael Ross of Jerry McGuire, The Throwaways co-stars Katie McGrath from Merlin, Christian Hillborg of The Bridge, and Jack Kesy of The Strain.

Atlantis series 2 episode 1 review: A New Dawn: Part One

14 November 2014 6:19 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Atlantis makes a welcome return with an action-packed start to a more grown-up second series...

This review contains spoilers.

2.1 A New Dawn Part One

Atlantis series 2 is, it seems, a rebirth for the series, with actors Mark Addy (Hercules) and Jack Donnelly (Jason) suggesting in interviews that writer Howard Overman and producers Julian Murphy and Johnny Capps have created an improvement on the first.

This time around, the show's creators seem to be taking advantage of the storytelling opportunities offered by Atlantis' 8.30pm timeslot, after the mis-step in the first season that saw a programme being broadcast at close to the watershed without any of the maturity that an audience would expect at that time. While A New Dawn Part One wasn't full of nudity, violence and gore, it’s certainly dramatically darker than series one

Starting with King Midas' funeral and Pasiphae attacking, Ariadne darkly states that “this »

Atlantis: Everything you need to know about a deeper, darker series 2

14 November 2014 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

"It's not the follow-up you would expect."

Atlantis returns to BBC One tomorrow night, but the series that'll be airing every Saturday for the next 13 weeks is very different from the one that went out in late 2013.

Here's everything you need to know about the new and improved fantasy drama, courtesy of its cast.

Atlantis just got darker

"Every part of it is so much more layered and deep - the characters are more layered, their relationships are more complex," says Aiysha Hart, who plays Ariadne.

"I don't think it was bad [before], but it's so different this year," agrees Robert Emms, the bookish Pythagoras. "It's much darker, much more action-packed, it's more serialised.

"I know people who didn't get on with it [last series] and I really want them to watch it. I really hope we gain a new audience - I think we deserve it."

New Atlantis series 2 trailer lands

7 November 2014 9:35 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Atlantis series 2 is a darker, more action-packed beast, and here's the trailer to prove it...

"The Gods have spoken. A new dawn is beginning."

The BBC is certainly not messing around with this new Atlantis series 2 trailer, which features more fights, action and explosions than you can shake several sticks at (or, ha, perhaps that should be StyxEr, no, it shouldn't be. Sorry).

The new run of the Howard Overman-penned Greek myth drama promises to be a reborn show that lives up to its half-eight timeslot, with all the villainy, stabbing and twisty betrayal that involves.

The new series welcomes the arrival of Medea (Amy Manson), and the pleasing prospect of Princess Ariadne getting out of the palace for once and showing some ruffians who's boss, Katniss-style. Oh, and there's also a bit of snogging by the looks of things too.

The clip sees the killer, played by Jamie Dornan, approach his next victim.

Is Atlantis series 2 really meaner and moodier?

20 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The word from Atlantis is that series 2 is much darker and less silly than the first. Here’s our spoiler-free look at episode 1…

When Atlantis came out of the gates last autumn, it was a light, comic Boys’ Own adventure. Its three male leads - the dishy heroic one, the chubby cowardly one, and the nerdy maths one - faced CGI monsters with a mixture of acrobatics, bickering and slapstick. Forays into the darker world of witchcraft and fate were countered by musical comedy stings and pratfalls. Swords were swung. Mythical creatures were battled. Jokes were cracked. Balconies were vaulted off. And a lukewarm average of 5.4 million UK viewers watched it all.

Hoping to increase that number and earn a third series renewal, Atlantis’ creators (Merlin producers Julian Murphy and Johnny Capps, and Misfits’ writer Howard Overman) are reported to have overhauled the second series, making it meaner, moodier, better-paced, »

The Oscar-winning actor (Kiss of the Spider Woman, Damages) is set to star in AMC’s new eight-part drama series Humans, which is “set in a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a ‘Synth’ — a highly-developed robotic servant eerily similar to its live counterpart.”

Hurt will play George Millican, a widower who forges something akin to a father-son relationship with “his out-of-date synth Odi.”

Atlantis series 2 almost a ‘reboot’

13 October 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The second series of BBC fantasy series Atlantis is “a completely different show” says cast member, Mark Addy

Returning to BBC One on Saturday the 15th of November is series two of Greek myth-inspired fantasy series Atlantis (well, the first chunk of series two at least. The second run is being split into two sections, one starting in November and the latter airing in early 2015).

After series one, which showed plenty of promise but stumbled in a number of areas, failed to set critics’ worlds on fire, it’s little surprise that the message of the series two launch was all about change.

“They’ve almost rebooted the show” said Hercules actor Mark Addy (Game Of Thrones, The Full Monty), “I think it is a completely different show. It’s not totally different obviously, but it’s different in its nature and it’s an improvement.”
