This BBC/Cymru series merrily mingles Greek mythology and historical characters in the fictitious city of Atlantis.
My ten-year-olds seem to constitute the main target group, and indeed both boy & girl watch avidly, and learn a lot, doing so.
Thanks to the Britishly witty dialogue (I reckon I could stomach even porn, or sports, provided it had punchy dialogue!) parents and older sister can also watch without puking.
(To the teenager, who is having a hard time swallowing inconsistencies with the mythology she knows by heart, I say it is for the greater good : The bambini learn a lot. And ancient mythology is so darn complicated, the histories are impossible to retain, anyway...)
