Watch Atlantis

Atlantis is a British science fiction/fantasy show that takes a new twist on a classic tale. Its was inspired by characters in old Greek mythology like Herculess, Medusa, Jason, and Pythagorus. The setting appears to be no different than any ancient Greek setting. What makes the story unique is that these same characters are actually in Atlantis.

In the first show, Jason is in the twentieth century and researching the dissapearance of his father. While on a deep sea expedition retracing his father's foot steps, Jason is transported to Atlantis. One minute he is under water, the next he is waking up with Hercules and Pythagorus. They believe him to be delusional and show Jason around.

The BBC use the same characters, but that is where the resemblance to old tales end. Hercules is a lovable idiot who prefers a good meal and get rich quick schemes to acts of valor. Despite this, his friends and an attraction to the kind and loving Medusa inspire heroic acts. While from the 20th century, Jason's fate is mysteriously linked to the residents of the ancient city. His father was there, and because he is his father's son he is destined for greatness.
