    Finally! Farewell, Tatlantis!

      It really was an average show. They could’ve done so much with, but decided not to.

        So you didn’t bother watching Series 2 Part 1 then? They have started to do different things with it.

    OK the show wasn’t perfect, but the second series was an improvement and it felt like the show was beginning to find its feet. What annoys me the most is that this will probably be replaced by some reality TV rubbish rather than the under-represented fantasy genre rather than “increasing the range of BBC One drama.”

    Not surprise personally I think they chose the most boring storylines possible. Shame because the myth of Atlantis has enough details in it to create a great tv series without going all over other ancient Greek myths which we have all seen many times before.

      I very much agree. I really wanted to like ‘Atlantis’ even after the way the producers finished ‘Merlin’, but found it absolutely dreadful. I stopped watching after series one after giving the show a fair chance.

      • ShalkaDoctor

        This is the problem. I was ready to give up after S1 but gave it another chance with S2. It has been an improvement with one inter-connected story and some exciting cliffhangers. They just wasted so much time to get there and lost a lot of goodwill.

    I thought it was getting better in series 2… They’d managed to keep the tension up throughout the first half of the series, and were bringing new things to the table. Yeah, series 1 was poor, but the writers had clearly upped their game since then. I presume the poor ratings were probably due to people not being willing to give it a second chance.

  • I always had a problem with this series as the main character was from the 21st century, found a locket and was transported to Atlantis… didn’t take him that long to adapt and totally forget his modern roots, or even show any kind of surprise at his environment. Or the fact he should have known the fate of Atlantis.. or something that would have given the series more than just the same-ole thing… I’m in agreement with Knowles2
