I am not a huge fan of these sorts of episodes based on well known stories. Of course we do get a slightly different perspective as the story is usually told from the Greek point of view, whereas Menalaus is not portrayed as a very good character either. Helen is not as beautiful as she should be - this was supposed to be the fairest woman in the world and while the actress is attractive enough, she doesn`t completely convince.
Perdicus was a non speaking bit part in Sins of the Past. Here he has been recast, and Scott Garrison is good and quite appealing, certainly more handsome than the original Perdicus. He is also quitea good character here - more than he would be in the later Return of Callisto, where he was very whiny.
Another OK but slightly dull episode.
