Atlantis premiered Saturday, November 23, 2013 as part of BBC America's biggest Supernatural Saturday ever.
Missed the Main Event? Legends come to life (again), BBC America's Atlantis: Season One makes an epic journey onto Blu-ray and DVD on March 18. From the creators of the internationally acclaimed hit series Merlin and the creator of the award-winning Misfits comes a new action-adventure series full of mythological heroes, historical figures and dangerous monsters. When Jason set out to find his father, he could never have anticipated where his journey would lead . . .
Far from home and desperate for answers, Jason (Jack Donnelly) washes up on the shores of an ancient land—a world of bull leaping, of oracles and of palaces so vast it was said they were built by giants. This is the lost city of Atlantis. But beneath the surface of this enticing place is a dark and simmering past, a complicated web of treachery and deceit in which Jason himself now seems inexplicably bound by a destiny he doesn’t fully understand. Aided by the studious young Pythagoras (Robert Emms) and the overweight, overbearing Hercules (Mark Addy), Jason embarks on a voyage of discovery which sees him brush shoulders with Medusa (Jemima Rooper), come face to face with the Minotaur and even do battle with the dead. A treasure trove of Greek myths and legends are re-imagined in a whole new way as this unlikely trio embarks on this edge-of-your-seat adventure.
Bonus Materials include cast and crew interviews.

Vikings
Go even further back in history with Vikings. Were they blood-drenched pillagers? Or savvy adventurers and entrepreneurs? Discover exciting new insights as historian Neil Oliver digs for clues. You’ll travel to archaeological sites in Norway, Sweden and Denmark, where Norsemen launch expeditions and raids. Watch in amazement as the warriors settle Britain, Iceland and Greenland and transform themselves from illiterate pagans into Christian farmers, statesmen and kings—all in less than 200 years. The dramatic truth behind the legends will change your understanding of Vikings forever.
