It's wrought with minor inaccuracies and tediously scattered.
22 March 2018 | by dejonggrantSee all my reviews

I love folklore and so I possibly expected too much from this title. They try to contextualize myths in erroneously simplified histories - the organization of which is tediously bad.

Most of the time they're featured, the experts fail to provide any actual insight into myths. When they're not spouting awful platitudes - which is possibly the most frustrating part of the show - they summarize only the most surface-level details of a given historical fact or mythology. It almost seems like each episode is deliberately structured to stretch a twenty minute run-time to forty minutes.

That said, both the artwork and the narration are great. With better direction, more information, and less platitudinal babble it could easily be an 8/10.
