    Jay,Atlanta and Herry arrived at Olympia High,but... Cronus the evil God escapes Tetarus(whatever) he wants the 3 heros to faile there first mission,but they complete their mission and destinie.





    a great pilot episode of Class Of the Titans its my first review here and its a good one. Herry the Brawn succeded Hercules,Atlanta the Hunter succeded Artemis,and Jay the Leader succeded Jason.I cant wait to see Neil in the 3rd episode of COTT.Atlanta has the power of the gods to run quick and hunt(her passion) like Artemis,Herry Mind Blank sometimes but has the brawn to hurt people from HerculesmJay The Leader,the most responsable of the group migth fall in love with Theressa(in 2nd episode she will arrive) and sometimes fails some important stuff suchs as the Antykera Device,Odie\'s injurie,and almost Death(for Jay)

    Jay also doesn\'t look like to respect the Gods Decision.



    Thank You Tv.com Crew and Members!

  • This episode shows a bit of background on where Jay, Atlanta and Herry are from--- and then thrust the three of them into friendship and teamwork when they're forced to work together and face Cronus already--- but he's not done yet...moreless

    I really enjoyed watching this episode, and it's one I feel I could watch over and over (although I'm sure I'd much rather watch it as a movie instead of the three-part episode). Firstly, we get to see a bit of background on where three of our Heroe's, Herry, Jay and Atlanta, are from. Herry born on a farm, already getting to use his super-strength to protect himself. Atlanta from Canada, and frustrated with two boys, family of some kind I assume, who are hunting with her and making noise--- but she learns there's bigger things to hunt then deer. Finally, Jay, staring at the stars and the only one to notice that time went back a single second--- long enough, although he doesn't know it yet, for the God of time to escape from Tartarus.



    Secondly, Jay was insecure in this episode. Unsure that he was suitable to even be a hero and immediately thinking that there was some kind of mistake. Overall, Jay's always come off as the Leader he's meant to be and not too insecure, but in this episode we get to see that weakness in him and I must say I particularly enjoyed that nice pleasant change, and hope there's more insecurity in the future.



    Then of course, the fact that Herry comes off as just an overly lovable, playful guy is shown, and the fact that despite his enormous bulky size and his incredible strength, he still gets scared just like the rest of us--- and possibly at things that some of us think might be a little irrational (although nothing compares to our dear descendant of Achilles' fear!).



    It would be nicer to see this as the movie because there's no waiting hours on end for the continuation, especially considering there are three episodes for this beginning of the popular series, but as an individual episode, it is still good :)moreless
  • For a pilot, it wasn't the best. Considering that the show's opener was meant to be an hour and a half movie, I felt that the writers could have spent more time developing the characters, the concept of New Olympia, and why the Gods were back.moreless

    7.0
    Overall, the episode felt quite rushed. I usually see a pilot episode as an opportunity to expand on the introductory ideas, settings, and flesh out characters. Chaos 101-103 did the characters, that we later get to know as the series progresses, very little justice. If I had based my opinion only on the first episodes, I doubt I would've continued watching the series. To be fair, however, as the series continues, it regains some of its earlier potential and arguably gets better with each episode. So as it stands, first impressions shouldn't always count.moreless
  • This is the episode were we first meet Jay Herry and Atlanta.Hermes swoops down and saves each of them from Cronus's henchmen.They all accept there fate as heroes at the end.Jay then discovers where Cronus is keeping the monster.moreless

    I really liked this episode because it showed the charecteristics of Jay Herry and Atlanta.it was a good first episode.Most first episodes don't explain how the characters life was before he/she became a hero.But so far it has explained it well.The characters are all different and not simliar in any way.The episode was entertaining and kept me watching to find out what happened next.

  • TRIVIA (4)

  • QUOTES (18)

    • Jay: Where are we? Looks bleak.

      Hermes: Canada.

    • Jay: They have to have made a mistake. I'm no hero. I mean, you know who you are! You're fast, (indicates Atlanta) and you're strong (indicates Herry) but I don't have anything special.

      Atlanta: I don't know about that. I mean, you saved me from those giants.

      Jay: Yeah, but that was...

      Atlanta: (interrupting softly) Instinct?

    • Cronus: Poor fellow... oh well.

    • Chiron: I have bad news---

      Hermes: (shoves past Chiron with difficulty and interrupts) Hey I'm the messenger, I'll deliver the message!

    • (Cronus spots Jay lurking nearby)
      Jay: (talking to himself) Come on Jay, it's only a couple of giants and an immortal god--- Uh, I don't think so, not today.

    • (After Hera tells Herry he is a descendant of Hercules)
      Herry: I'm related to you?

      Hercules: Just think of me as your great great great great great great great...uh...great great great great grandpa.

    • Hera: And you're Herry--- (Herry puts on an innocent "I didn't do anything" face after playing with the portal) and you're Atlanta.

    • Atlanta: Could you be any louder? Can't you see there's a... (turns around and notices giant behind her) giant monster behind me!?

    • Hermes: I'd climb on her back if I were you, you have a better chance of not being eaten that way.

      Jay: Eaten? Seriously?

      Hermes: Don't worry, she just didn't have her breakfast this morning. Isn't that right? You missed your brecky wecky.

    • Cronus: Mortals? That can't be right.

      Oracle: I'm always right, 4000 years and not a single mistake. Not bad, huh?

    • Cronus: There you are. You're looking well, Oracle.

      Oracle: Oh come now, I'm starting to look like a shaved cat.

    • Herry: It's three aginst one. I think we're good.

      Atlanta: Ya, I'm good with that.

    • Cronus: Fools believe in destiny, Jay. I was destined to spend eternity in Tartarus, and here I am.

      Jay: (to Cronus) You talk a lot, don'cha?

    • Herry: You think they'll get out of the way if I ask them nicely?

    • Jay: Where did Hermes go?

      Atlanta: I don't know. A toga party?

    • Hermes: (looks at Herry, who is clinging for dear life to a griffin) You can let go now, Herry. The ride's over.

    • Jay: Okay, let me get this straight - you're Hermes? The immortal messenger of the Greek gods of Olympus?

      Hermes: Ah yes, that's me. Why do I always get stereotyped? I'm also the god of trade, travel, luck, language ... the list goes on, but who remembers that? No one.

    • Herry: Wait a second. If we find the huge fire-breathing giant, what do we do?

      Atlanta: Yeah, we don't exactly have any weapons.

      Jay: We've got Herry. He's a weapon!

  • NOTES (4)

    • In this episode, the first three descendants are revealed. Jay, descendant of Jason, is revealed to enjoy gazing at the stars through his telescope, and he seems to be the only one that notices time goes back, even just a second.

      Herry is shown to be living on a farm, which seems to fit nicely with his character considering his love of food, which on a farm there is a large supply of freshly grown goods.

      Atlanta on the other hand is revealed to already be hunting, with two boys, presumably her brothers, or stepbrothers, generally in relation to her although exactly how I don't believe it has been confirmed.

    • This episode (along with the other Chaos episodes) were usually shown on Teletoon as Cinetoons or special presentations as a mini-movie. However, it was first shown as an individual episode on August 28th, 2006.

    • Chiron is supposed to be dead, having given-up his immortality when he couldn't stand the pain of one of Hercules's poisoned-tipped arrows. As he was immortal, he couldn't be killed by them like the other centaurs were.

    • This Episode was first aired on the 31st of December on teletoon.

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • When he first escapes from Tartarus, we see that Cronus' weapons of choice are scythes. This is most likely an allusion to how in Greek mythology, Cronus overthrew his father, Uranus, by castrating him with a scythe given to him by his mother, Gaia.

    • The 'Chaos' part of the title has two meanings. The most obvious is a reference to our modern definition of the word, ie. a state of confusion. However, it is also an allusion to the ancient Greek mythological concept of 'Chaos', which was the empty void of the universe from which the world as we know it was created from and therefore had its beginnings in (like this show).

    • The name "Class of the Titans" is a reference to the 1980s movie "Clash of the Titans".
