    Funny how harsh you are about Robert Emms yet the character you seem to worship, Jason, is more wooden than Pinocchio and the main reason why I couldn’t get on board with the show. For me, the supporting characters are much stronger and more interesting than the poorly acted and frankly boring Jason plot. I understand not everyone can love the same characters I respect that but can you honestly say Jason (Jack Donnolley) is a good actor? Among this cast he is frankly one of the poorest, he seems like a lovely guy in real life but his Jason never captured my emotion or sympathy or excitement and that is due to the acting skills. Atlantis has been very up and down and after a very disappointing first series I wasn’t bothered about the show but I gave it another shot and I am glad I did because series 2 has been a vast improvement even though there are a lot of problems still it has so much more potential and I could live with not liking Jason because with stories as rich as the Greek Myths I could invest my emotions elsewhere.

    • I can’t honestly say Jack Donnelly is any better than Robert Emms but at the very least Jason is a good character. Not the best but has his moments that make him engaging enough to follow week in and out. Atlantis does seem to suffer in places, as I state in the review, but still holds a certain charm that allows it to stand just enough to remain good old fashioned Saturday-night entertainment. Thanks for your comment by the way.

        I really appreciate your response :) and am definitely in agreement that Atlantis is good entertainment and escapism which will be a greatly missed thing on TV because all the rubbish reality shows that take over. I am sad to think that we may not get these shows in the future because even though Atlantis has its flaws it is getting stronger and Id take this kind of show over those reality one anyday.
