Does This ring a bell to anyone? it should, because this show is Excellent.

If you are unfamiliar this will fill you in :the struggles of Ulysses and his crew against the divine entities that rule the universe, the ancient gods from Greek mythology. The Gods of Olympus are angered when Ulysses, commander of the giant spaceship, Odyssey, kills the giant Cyclops to save a group of enslaved children, including his son. Zeus sentences Ulysses to travel the universe with his crew frozen until he finds the Kingdom of Hades, at which point his crew will be revived and he will be able to return to Earth. Along the way they encounter numerous other famous figures from Greek mythology given a futuristic twist.

if that is not cat in pants exciting i don't know what is. Greek Myth set in the 31st century with light sabers and monsters. Awesome! :D

This is by far one of the best pieces of work i have done in a while :)

Hopefully I can get more people watching this show, because it did indeed come out in the wake of starwars, but it is one of the few shows to branch off and tell its own story and being truly awesome while doing it. This was probably the "darkest" cartoon i had seen as a child by far, dealing with themes of eternal damnation, loss of loved ones, going up against insurmountable odds. The music is haunting and atmospheric. This stand alone series is a masterpiece and a real inspiration. I recommend you seek it out :)

Music to my ears, yah,it has some real fresh ideas, considering the age of the cartoon. It's one of those I grew up with as a kid, so some of the scarier moments were multiplied ten fold on my impressionable brain tissue ;)

Nice one adding it to the "Holy Crap this is Good" Folder. It makes me smile I qualify for such an Honor, LOL,

Thanks very much ^_^
