A subscriber of my e-Bulletin emailed me some months back to let me know about a new television series produced by BBC called Atlantis, based on Greek mythology. It follows the adventures of three friends Jason, Hercules and Pythagoras in the mythical city Atlantis. The stories blend a variety of Greek myths and though many are chronologically out of context, I must admit to enjoying the series.
The characters I’ve listed are more like anti-heroines, females who may have started out with good or bad intentions and depending on their circumstances, made changes to adapt to the situation. The interesting aspect about these characters is you really want to dislike them but you don’t. Yes, they are flawed, who isn’t yet they have a vulnerability that draws you. It may be their past that came back to haunt them; a predicament that forced them to make a decision; or they are a product of their socio-economic environment.
