Atlantis - Episode 1.12 - Touched by the Gods (Pt 1) - Preview and Dialogue Teasers

As you might have guessed, Jason is still wrestling over his sworn oath and cannot decide whether he will be able to kill the Queen in cold blood or not, none the less he and his friends set out to infiltrate the palace in order to put their plan in action. It isn't long before Hercules courage deserts him however, and Jason is left realising that he will need the help of an insider in order to escape the palace undetected.

A much better episode this week, the script is tighter and the on the whole the performances are more nuanced than last weeks. I still have a few little niggles with it, a few too many cheap/tired visual gags and a far too easy resolution to one problem Jason faces being the main grumbles, but overall I found it enjoyable. The one thing that would help it be more popular in my opinion would be to move to the teatime slot, it really does feel like it's aimed at a younger audience than it's airing time at present.

It's great to see Lucy Cohu back as Circe, it's been six weeks since her last appearance so I fear some viewers will have either forgotten the pact she made with Jason or not know about it at all. I hope that these kinds of arcs are improved next season; much like Pasiphae poisoning Minos and Jason's futuristic past it does feel as though the audience need more consistancy and reminding throughout the episodes as to what is happening in the long run.

Touched by the Gods, Pt 1 will air on BBC 1 and BBC 1HD at 7.55pm on Saturday 21st. Below are some teasers to see you through until then.

“Are you calling me simple?”

“One of my archers wounded him, he cannot have gone far”

“Be careful Ariadne, it seems there is a traitor among us”

“I was going to suggest killing her while she slept”

“Sometimes I struggle to believe I had such high hopes for you”

“I’ll have you know I once tossed a rabid bull off the top of a cliff”

“Bring me evidence of my sister’s death by mid-day three days hence”

“It’s better than sitting round here waiting for Circe to slaughter us all in our beds”

“I've imagined plunging a dagger deep into her heart”

“The Queen has always coverted the throne, it is she who conspires against the King”

“Maybe they have discovered the Queen is dead”

“My time is drawing near, there will be dark days ahead”

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
