📺 Percy Jackson and the Olympians (2023) - ★★★★☆
I really enjoyed this show. It’s pretty solid in the story telling and the pacing. I’m really glad that they took the time to make this better than the previous incarnation.
You don’t need to have seen the movie or read the books to enjoy this show. It stands alone and I came away from every episode entertained and then swizzling my head around to my kids to ask them “is this like the book?” And you know what? It doesn’t matter. This is a different medium and we have to be able to live without in order to enjoy what we have to the fullest.
I’m eager to see what the next season has in store.
Percy Jackson is on a dangerous quest. Outrunning monsters and outwitting gods, he must journey across America to return Zeus’ master bolt and stop an all-out war. With the help of his quest mates Annabeth and Grover, Percy’s journey will lead him closer to the answers he seeks: how to fit into a world where he feels out of place, and find out who he’s destined to be.
