FIRST CAST PHOTOS AND TRAILER FOR SYFY'S NEW MYTHOLOGICAL EPIC TV SERIES 'OLYMPUS' WITH TOM YORK, SONYA CASSIDY, MATT FREWER, GRAHAM SHIELS!

'OLYMPUS' EPIC TV SERIES
1ST CAST PHOTOS AND TRAILER
I do agree that the trailer and the photos look cheesy and trashy and that a part of the cast seems terribly miscast, but here's something epic for you: new fantasy series OLYMPUS which we shall give benefit of the doubt April 2nd at SyFy! Today you can check out the first cast photos and also the epic trailer for the 13 episode mythological drama series which will take viewers into the action packed world of humans, Gods and monsters!

MEN AGAINST GODS
New mythological series OLYMPUS  follows a young man’s mythical quest to solve the riddle of the Gods, unlock the doors to Olympus and become an immortal. Hero’s epic journey leads him through the darkest realms of Ancient Greece accompanied by the beautiful, but twisted Oracle of Gaia, the powerful sorceress Medea and genius inventor Daedalus. Hero battles trickster gods, vicious monsters, seductive nymphs, kings and despots, as he transforms from fresh-faced naive into a ruthless, cold hearted killer, and match for the gods themselves.

HEROES, KINGS AND ORACLES
Young Tom York is Hero, the bastard son of King Aegeus, and the holder of the Lexicon (the secret code that allows man to enter Olympus). Sonya Cassidy is Oracle a seer who will help Hero. Matt Frewer is Daedalus, a mad genius. Sonita Henry is Medea, a powerful sorceress and a ruthless wife of King Aegeus, aggressive ruler of Athens, played by Graham Shiels. Wayne Burns is their son Lykos, a big hearted strategist. Alan C. Peterson is greedy, scheming King Minos determined to conquer the whole civilized world.

    1. Hope it will be good ... especially since BBC's ATLANTIS was so godawful and disappointing

  2. So many shows... so little time. I have found with new shows I won't watch them until they are least half a season into it or on the second season...

  4. Judging from the trailer, "Olympus" seems unnecessarily complex. Nice to see Matt Frewer in something again though.

  5. I never did get into mythology. I am not sure this one will be my cup of tea.

    3. I do, history is my fave genre next to sf and this one mixes both :)

  6. Yeah. I'm kind of underwhelmed. I think they should have stuck with a simpler theme. As Debra said above, it's complex and therefore confusing.

  7. I think they should use Nina's version of 'wicked game' on a movie or tv soundtrack; she's go some pipes!

  8. I agree, the visuals look pretty cheesy. But I'm still going to watch it. I'm a sucker for Greek mythology.

  10. If they're going to do something like that, it has to be done full-on or it will come across as cheesy. And that means lots of money on costumes, sets, and good actors!

    1. costumes are mildly sad, sets are more or less OK, actors more than terrible... I don't think I've ever seen such a dilettante cast on TV
