At least it was not offensive, as some of the other series from this team have been (how long will it take us to forget The Magical Legend of the Leprechauns?).
I caught the second half of Jason and the Argonauts last night, which was a bit more interesting, despite the fact that they shortchanged Medea a bit.
At the very least, it is nice to see fantasy appearing more and more regularly on screen. Sooner or later, someone will get all the pieces right.
