The siege is supposed to last a decade, yet Evander (a little boy) is shown to always have the same age (it is said he is 9 years old during the later episodes). We meet him in the first episodes, when he technically should have been either unborn or a baby. See more »
I'll be brief, as I don't want want to waste as much time writing about this show as I did watching it. If (like me) you're a fan of both Ancient Greek history and myth, then don't watch this as you'll be disappointed. If you're a fan of Game of Thrones (also like me) and you're expecting something similar here, then again, don't watch, you'll be equally as disappointed! Avoid.
