Of Zeus, Poseidon and Hades...

Clash of the titans, the lords, the Greek deities. A remake of the 1981 film based upon the Greek myth of Perseus, the demigod and son of Zeus. I won't say the show is perfect, but I'm attracted to the setting and the history. I admitted I don't know much about their history, so it all turns out to be like a history lesson, and I love history. Though I did notice there's a slight deviation in the role of Io, who according to the myth, should be Zeus's lover instead of Perseus, who should end up with Andromeda. It's more of a battle between Zeus, Hades and Perseus, with no sight of Poseidon. Man vs God, Demigod vs God, well, I wonder just how true are this myths.
