Greek Gods, Heroes and Monsters

This History Channel series has a similar name to a course of mine in CUNY. I like it when the channel has shows that aren't totally nonsense like aliens creating civilization, and this pseudo-scholarly series does provide a nice introduction to various mythological ideas. It does have some problems such as always trying to hint that the mythology could have an actual historical foundation and they always have to link the stories to Jesus somehow, as if if they didn't we might think they are promoting paganism or something. It is also pretty funny that I think the show has one fancy jacket that they make most of their interviewed scholars wear. I wishes there were more shows like this (and less on aliens, it is the HISTORY channel after all).
