Atlantis season 2

The second season is still a teensy bit corny, low-budget TV-filmish, but a lot more ambitious both in setting and in plot than season one

It's still very child-friendly and it turns out my pre-teens enjoy it almost as much as they did as ten-year-olds. I personally don't hate it, and particularly enjoy certain aspects :
1.  Bechdel-test very largely passed, thanks to a great number of powerful and power-wielding females.
2. Ancient Greek mythology soaked up by the gallon (albeit slightly altered, from time to time).
3. Jason, Pythagoras, Hercules and all sorts of historical figures expressing themselves in the most deliciously RP English, while Medea seems to have moved in from Ireland?
