In Game of Thrones, Joseph Mawle (Odysseus) plays Benjen Stark, brother of Ned Stark (Sean Bean). Sean Bean played Odysseus in the movie Troy. See more »
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 so badly wanted this to be good, but the first episode , is a warning that even makes Cassandra redundant.
I found the acting wooden, the storyline a mess, the script dreadful. The two main characters Helen and Paris, devoid of any charisma, thus the very idea of a 1000 ships sailing to rescue her laughable.
The least of my worries based on this first episode, is the casting of Achilles , and others .
How on earth can this second rate production, hit our T V screens , when one recalls TROY from a decade ago, perhaps using George Martin for advice might have saved time and money !!!!
