He Said: Our guest blogger just couldn’t stay away! Actually I like the show. Some pictures are a little cheesy and all of the heroes (Hercules, Perseus etc.) have paint on one eye which is weird, but overall it’s a cool show.

Big He Said: This series on the History channel retells the great greek myths–that of Zeus, Hades, Hercules, the Minotaur, Medusa, to name a few–as well as Homer’s Odyssey, the epic tale of Odysseus and the trials and tribulations he encountered delaying his return to Ithaca. At the same the series explores both the archaeological evidence for the origin of these tales as well as the real life lessons we can learn from them. In sum, I really enjoy the series, and I’ve especially enjoyed watching them with my Percy Jackson sidekick, He Said. We’ve both learned a lot about Greek mythology and benefited from the morality tales that are often a part of the myth. If you don’t get the History channel, the series can (of course) be bought at the History Channel store. Click on the image above. There you’ll find previews of the series as well as opportunities to purchase them.
