  • Trivia

    • When Tony and Doug are captured in the beginning of the episode, the Greek soldiers tell the two travelers they are outside the city of Troy, motioning to a view of it. The camera shows a city. It is a modern day picture of the famous Acropolis in Athens, Greece. The structures are in obvious ruin except for a modern building not very noticeable in the lower portion of the view. The city of Troy of the Trojan War is generally believed to have been located in Northwest Turkey, nowhere in Greece.

    • They call the gods Venus, Juno, Minerva and Jupiter by their Roman names rather than their Greek names (Aphrodite, Hera, Athena and Zeus.)

    • For the first, but not the last time, the guys arrive in a place and time where they can't possibly know the language (Greek), but have no problem with translation.
