Recap: Atlantis s01e01

Since bringing Merlin to its ridiculous end, the BBC has clearly been needing to fill that Saturday early-evening timeslot with more shirtless men, historical anachronisms, mangling of myths and legends, and shirtless men. Judging just from its first episode, Atlantis seems to be filling this in an exemplary fashion. Certainly, Eleanor and I enjoyed it very much — possibly even more than Merlin, not least as this time we have no high expectations of it actually making any sense.

I thought I would recap, primarily for my own amusement. Hopefully it will amuse you too. (The main emotion this show has so far inspired in us is helpless giggling.)
