We are up to episode 3 of Syfy’s new Greek mythology series, Olympus, and again, a solid episode. The setting is what gets me. The colors and the large, epic statues, sure look more Sharknado than Gotham, but I think I expect it from this decadence.

Olympus 1.3 “Ring of the Magi” review: This is the quirkiest little myth show! Xerxes (Cas Anvar) and Pallas (John Emmet Tracy) conspire to kill Medea (Sonita Henry), but I’m pretty sure someone was listening. I think she’s regretting the poisoning of her husband. She may need his protection, but he won’t come out of it. Ask the other woman!

Lykos (Wayne Burns) comes up with yet another brilliant strategy to defeat King Minos. He probably should really be the king. I don’t get the secrecy between him and his scribe. Wasn’t homosexuality accepted in this culture? Why all the hush hush?

Spoiler alert!

Last week we were introduced to this visually striking and very campy tale of Hero (Tom York), a simple guileless young man, on a quest to unlock a mystery inside him. The Lexicon is all powerful and allows one to enter Olympus and attain immortality like the gods themselves! After rescuing the Oracle (Sonya Cassidy) from the scariest and best-made monster I have ever seen, the Cyclops, Hero wants to bring her to the temple she ran away from, so she can answer his origins questions. In the meantime, Medea (Sonita Henry), bleeds out her son with King Aegeus (Graham Shiels), Lykos (Wayne Burns), as she believes the Lexicon is inside him. King Aegeus was injured in a battle with the army of King Minos. Was his brother Pallas (John Emmet Tracy) behind it? Medea puts Lykos in charge, while she keeps her husband abed with “tonics.”
