This TV series has one of the best story lines, action packed and story revolves around Mythology during a time that human kind was at the bring of evolution. Great acting, love stories and incorporates many ancient Greek mythologies that occured around this time. Watching Olympus is captivating. You will never get board. Been a long time for a good TV series to come out to market with a realistic plot, twist and entertainment. (Tired of these other TV series that they make by the dozens but have no real entertainment value.) ** not for kids as there are sexual scenes and scenes signifying sexual behaviour ** Very suspensful TV series.
