Conan the Barbarian meets Ayn Rand
9 February 2015 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I almost never write comments but on this one I was compelled to do so. The title made that series appealing to me by its ambitious scope and its treatment. But what a disappointment after just watching a couple of minutes (I actually watched the first 3 episodes to write this review) I didn't know if I needed to laugh at first and switch it off or give it more time, which I finally did. My first opinion was then confirmed. It is literally something that could have been produced by the military channel (if such thing still does exist) by producers on steroids and growth hormones, which have obviously impaired their judgment and ability to understand the complexity of humanity. It goes beyond accuracy of historical facts at this point. This series could be described as follow: Conan the Barbarian meets Ayn Rand. It is a dangerously misleading, androcentric and eurocentric program. Although those that write history are usually the winners, history is much more than battles, warriors, generals, and prophets. This show is the perfect example of the simple-minded (pretty much brainwashing) history that we teach our kids either in school or via entertainment like this program. This kind of show, that glorified the ugly part of us, perpetuates a distorted vision that we have of ourselves and make an apology for our current destructive culture. How can we grow has a civilization let alone as a species, if we show our kids that our history is just filled with bloody battles, revenge, power struggles etc… and that the strongest and ruthless survive. Please stop producing that kind of stuff just for the sake of entertainment, it's highly irresponsible. Instead, make us think and show us what we're capable of (hint: I'm not talking about building massive pyramids to match the ego of a self-proclaimed God). It's time to grow up and change the narrative and the story. I give it 2 stars over ten for their effort to rise the production value.
