I love Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, and also Virgil's Aeneid. What would you think of a television series made out of these epic poems? There is a lot of material, so if it were successful, you could get a lot of seasons from it. If there were a series, how would you like it to be tackled? As a serious drama, a comedy (like the BBC's Merlin and Atlantis), or somewhere in between?
I would love to see Homer and Virgil's poems turned into a long TV series. They made Troy the movie, but it was not very true to the story. I would only want them to make a show that actually followed the events accurately. Saying that, I would want it more light hearted than the actual poems; not a comedy, but still something that could make you laugh - a bit in the tone of Stargate. I would be interested to see who would play all the gods, etc.
Personally I'd prefer something that stuck to the poems a bit more than Merlin sticks to the Arthurian legend. Also, I didn't think Merlin was a comedy, more of a silly drama, but maybe it's not the same show I'm thinking of.
It would be OK as long as it wasn't made by Americans. They would just make it into a ridiculous farce with little resemblance to the original stories. Everyone would be over made up and coiffured and acting like cardboard cut outs.
