Yes, looking forward to this a lot.  Intriguing to set the action from the viewpoint of Troy.

Apologies am on my fire so can't provide a link.
It is a BBC/netflix production starting on Saturday 17th February 21:10 on BBC1.
It is an eight part miniseries retelling the fall of Troy.
I personally think it looks OK and is coming at a perfect time to act as some inspiration.

Haven't seen much about it but what I have suggests worth a look at the very least. Been thinking about a Trojan War project ever since Colours last year so this might spark it off.

Sadly, no. I think it is a little too PC/Hip for me.

From what I've seen it looks like a load of crap.
Well, that should stop Rocket Morton from getting all the girls.

Well I must say that yet again Im disappointed. Some people seem to think that they can be ''creative'' or ''improve'' something that withstood the pass of millenia and still is considered a classic tale.
And anyway if somebody wants a really interesting version of the Iliad why dont they give Eric Shanower a budget? His Age of bronze comic series is simply magnificent.

The only version of Homer worth the trouble (including Homer's) is Pope's translation.
