"Atlantis": I Call Bullshit

Look, I don't even care if you've seen Atlantis, the BBC show from the creator of Misfits (which is fantastic), here's a thing I need to talk about that spoils nothing. The main character is from our time. He comes to the mythical city of Atlantis through a submarine crash and hangs out with Hercules and Pythagoras. Myths and mayhem ensue and it reminds me of those 90's shows like Hercules and Xena. What?! Don't judge me I love mythology and shit.

So here's the deal: the main character, pretty much by episode two, just accepts everything about the time period. Every. Fucking. Thing. Yeah, he's wowed here or there by a name drop but there's no anachronism to him. At all. No "Well in my time..." or any future shit whatsoever. WHAT IS THAT?! WHY EVEN HAVE THE TIME TRAVEL IN THE FIRST PLACE?!


That said, I'm going to keep watching it even under this ridiculousness. I don't care Crosstalk! Don't look at me like that!
