There’s a new show about the Trojan War on Netflix …? What is it? Where did it come from? Has shrug seen it yet?


#598

oh no


#599

oh this is that one where people were mad because achilles is black and compared it to whitewashing non-white characters by casting white actors as poc in other adaptations of whatever

people are really stupid sometimes


#600

4:05 into the first episode and Paris is a horny sheperd introduced as bare buttocks thrusting into a woman out in an open field

is this… peak television?


#601

they play with the alexandros/paris thing by having paris be his fakename as a herdsdude’s fakeson then when he bets his way into a wrasslin’ contest in the big city and bites hector in the face it’s revealed his True Name is PRINCE ALEXANDER


#602

THIS SHOW’S VERSION OF SPARTA APPEARS TO HAVE A DEFENSIVE WALL IN A BRIEF INCIDENTAL SHOT WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THI


#603

“So… How did you two get together?”

really captures the spirit and poetry of Homer


#604

paris thrusts endlessly into helen

intercut with his sister cassandra’s restless slumber


#605

I’m so sorry for obligating you to have this experience


#606

only seven episodes to go!


#607

Hecuba finally gets lines in the second episode I thought she was just going to sit in bed looking haunted forever despite being played by the only recognizable actor in the whole cast


#608

diomedes looks like a chump


#609

odysseus looks like sean bean and nic cage had a babby then the babby grew up and a wax figure was made in its likeness


#610

paris’ thrusts into helen are now intercut with agamemnon sacrificing his daughter on the beach

incredible motif they’re building across episodes


#611

hoping for some sort of thinkpiece on this dude’s pistoning buttocks


#612

there’s so much leather with weird other bits of leather attached to it and so many rivets

achilles has asymmetrical shoulder pads in this scene


#613

characters run screaming at one another in big loose lines battle


#614

Achilles impassively throws a spear back at a guy and hits him in the back of the head and the spear comes out his gasping mouth but the greeks are in retreat for the night

weird paris isn’t thrusting right now


#615

I am seething with Achillean rage
