Mythquest is one of the best tv series to come along in a while, and it only got to run for one season!
With interesting characters, a brother and sister team (which is much better than always being 'love interests'), you learns about real myths that exist in world culture.
This series gave an incite into those myths and I felt was very good for 'relucant readers' who may never have even heard of some of the characters because they didn't want to pick up a big, thick and old book.
It suits anyone from a pre-teen upwards as the characters they become, range in age, culture and type.
Sad that it's gone, for the record - Red Wolf's Daughter was my favourite episode - and was well written into a novelisation.
