Product Description

In this exceptional 3-disc collection, HISTORY® explores the stories behind the classic myths of ancient Greece. Meet Zeus, the king of the gods, like you’ve never seen him before in an epic battle with the Titans. Join Hercules’ quest for redemption as he embarks on his 12 Labors, and dive deep into Hades’ underworld to explore the ancient Greek belief in life after death. Learn the true story behind the snake-haired gorgon, Medusa, and follow Odysseus’ adventures on his famous journey home from battle to reclaim his wife and kingdom in a tale filled with beasts, vengeful gods and enchanting seductresses. For the people of this ancient land, these myths explained and gave meaning to the world. This special set includes visits to archaeological sites, stunning location footage, interviews with leading scholars, and period art and writings to investigate the possible real-world origins of these iconic and foundational myths.

This 3-disc collection, which uses science to test the plausibility of the stories, is a great learning tool for studying Greek mythology. It mixes re-enactments, strong narration, credible interviews with experts, and scenic locales, to make the series of stories fun and interesting. It is presented in widescreen format, but sadly does not come with subtitles. Also, there are times when the musical score overpowers the narrator. Overall, this is a good band for your buck. Beware: The series on this DVD is originally from the "Clash of the Gods" series/collection; the title "Greek Gods, Heroes and Monsters" is misleading.

BEWARE!!!!! Dec 18 2013

I just received this set and was highly disappointed that it is basically the exact same release as Clash Of The Gods!! I already own Clash Of The Gods on Blu-Ray, why would I want it AGAIN, on DVD?? There was no mention of this in the description on Amazon, nor on the DVD cover. My rating is for the poor product description, which I don't fault Amazon for.

I'm disappointed as I had already opened it, popped it in the player, then said to myself "This looks awfully familiar. Don't you already have this?". To make it worse, Clash Of The Gods is available on Blu-Ray for about $4-$5 less!!!

Greek Gods Heroes & Monsters Feb. 27 2014
By Colten - Published on Amazon.com
One-third mediocre overview program and two-thirds empty calorie television, "Greek Gods, Heroes and Monsters" is a sad, pathetic rehash of previously existing "History" programming not so cleverly disguised as a new offering. Nothing else needs to be said.
