Anybody seen this Netflix/BBC show?

Just got done with it...it's a laugher. Being a 8-show series, it actually delves into more of the Iliad story than the Brad Pitt/Eric Bana disaster. Unfortunately, somebody high-up at the BBC thought they could capture some Game of Thrones-vibes and ended up failing in a number of ways. The most obvious is the introduction of Black actors to a Greek story, if a studio wants to get multi-culti, than do it...considering Troy sits at the entrance of the Dardenlles, put some Semetic, East Indian and Asian faces in also. I'm sure the Greeks themselves crack up when every sword & sandal story has English-accented actors. Big Grin Oh, the acting, what acting...it's a laugher.

I made it through the first 2 episodes, but found it so uninteresting that I starting watching other shows and just forgot about it.

At first I was wondering, who is the gay black dude? Then, at a certain point someone called him Achilles!

Is that the future? Re-cast every historical hero figure as a lgtbq minority.

Next week the new version of "Patton" comes out, and it turns out he was a transgendered illegal alien latino. (Joking)

This phase in societal evolution needs to hurry and run its course.

I made it just a little into Episode 1. To paraphrase Samuel Johnson, 'You don't have to eat the entire roast to tell that it's spoiled'.
