A bit underrated
17 January 2016 | by bamiwinSee all my reviews

This series is a bit under-rated. While it is definitely not a perfect effort, my patience was rewarded for continuing to watch. Watch this series for the strength of it's plot-arc, pacing and very creative world-building.

Cons: I almost stopped watching in the first couple episodes.The script has rough character portrayal, that I could not always completely accept. The technical quality of the visual effect is average. And I felt that dialogue was lack-luster and character motivation bounced a bit between believable, murky and inconsistent.

Pros: There were some genuinely good dramatic performances in the series. And generally, I felt acting performances were good given the script. The story continuously took unexpected turns in a good way (not to be confused with character portrayal). And the artistic quality of the visuals is high. Kudos to the design artists.

Up to this point, I would give the series 5 or maybe 5 1.2 stars: average. But where the series really shines is in it's pacing and plot arc. The pacing was terrific. It started slow and accelerated wonderfully to the final climax. The plot arc took what might have been a typical Greek-mythos re-hash and did something quite surprising and enjoyable with.

Comclusion: Watch this series for the strength of it's plot-arc, pacing and very creative world-building. And to give my opinion on a common criticism, I had no real complaint about blue-screening and sound- stages, because while I noticed them, they were not bad. Just...noticeable, compared to so many of today's high-budget, thin- plotted graphical productions.
