I’ll be running the Clash of the Gods: The Complete Season One contest through Friday, April 9, 2010.
This March, A&E Home Entertainment invites you to travel back to a more ancient time to discover the magical stories behind Zeus, Hercules, Hades, Medusa and many more of the most legendary mythological figures with the popular new History series, Clash of the Gods. In the cutting-edge graphic style of 300, Clash of the Gods: The Complete Season One brings ancient mythology to rich life with stunning modern-day CGI, just days before the theatrical release of the highly anticipated Clash of the Titans featuring many of the same myths and legends. Reacquaint yourself with myths so powerful that they remain woven into the fabric of the present world on both DVD (3-disc set) and Blu-ray (2-disc set).
Thousands of years ago, myths were used to help frame the world of the ancients, and dictate the guidelines of their societies. Today, these same myths are often the first stories we learn as children, iconic tales in which good and evil clash, and humanity and fantasy collide. But what is the reality behind these stories? From the epic tragedy of Medusa, Greek mythology’s most infamous female fiend, to Hercules, its greatest action hero, and Hades, master of the land of the dead and a god so feared no one would speak his name, these myths and the legendary figures who inspired them are explored in Clash of the Gods. Connecting ancient myths to actual historical events, as well as to events in the Bible and other cultures’ mythologies, each CGI-filled episode pulls together important historical insight from renowned scholars in search of the truth behind the legends.
