At least this week they gave Ariadne some agency; however, this step forward falters on the fact that she only steps out of the palace because she is spurred on by her devotion to and love of two men, her brother and Jason. Heaven forfend she might have motivations of her own!
Also: The day-for-night blue filter filming was the most atrocious use of that money-saving technique I have seen in the modern age. It looked worse than when they used to do it on Night Gallery forty years ago to save cash.
The producers of this show promised a reimagining of Greek mythology, but so far they have delivered instead a pale shadow of Shakespeare’s courtly intrigue married to a love story that Shakespeare would have found both too muted and too clichéd. With that, I think I will close out these capsule reviews of Atlantis. If, by chance, they happen to do something interesting with Greek mythology I might give it a mention; otherwise, I’m out of ways to say the same thing each week.
