Clash of the What?

Originally published at Jean Marie Ward. You can comment here or there.

Banging my head against the keyboard again. History Channel has started a new series about the Greek myths, Clash of the Gods. So far so good; any Greek mythology programs have to help Highway’s chances. But oh, ugh, their knowledge of the myths is soooooo shallow. Not only that, but every stinking one of the figures listed as "gods" (and at least two of them ain’t dieties, folks)–Zeus, Hercules, Hades and the Minotaur–are men. Hello? What about the rest of us?
Oh wait, they’ve just named another "god": Medusa. I don’t think so.
Arrrrrrrgh!
