  • A bit muddled and sometimes melodramatic, but nice performances by the supporting cast!

    I felt this episode was a bit overdramatic at times, and again with the different storylines and subplots, but I still enjoyed it a lot. Also, nice to see some of the original mythology being used (although slightly mangled) in the story.
    There are some terrific supporting roles in this one, such as Mark Ferguson as Hades (both the character and the actor completely different from the one that would appear later in the series) wearing a really silly wig, and Michael Hurst as boatman to the Other Side Cheiron, whom he portrays as a sort of undead version of Robert De Niro’s Taxi Driver. It’s hilarious!
    No Iolaus though, which makes me sad.
