The inspiration for countless books, movies and comics worldwide, this grand and unparalleled rendition will bring 13 adventure-clad episodes illuminating the supernatural anecdote of Beowulf, a prodigious but troubled warrior who experiences love and loss yet shares a deep binding comradery with his fellow kinsmen. Reimagined for television, the series was filmed throughout England's vast and breath-taking countryside to set the stage for the story's fantastical land inhabited by heroes and beasts.

Okay, so we all know where the series will probably end.. Beowulf and Grendel, but THIS series seems to be telling the story
of Beowulf before that epic battle happens. The sets are impressive, as is the acting, costumes and music BUT the cgi could
have been better. It's my pet hate that shows use bad cgi on a first episode cos it turns people off from the rest of the series
but thankfully this show don't rely too much on cgi.. or it hasn't yet in the first two episodes.. which is probably why im sticking
with it at the moment. Iv'e read MANY reviews on this show where the reviewer is comparing this show to Game Of Thrones, shame
on them.. this show is NOTHING like Game of Thrones, i'd say it's more like a cross between Vikings and The Last Kingdom with a
bit of Merlin thrown in.

Episode 1: 8/10
Episode 2: 7.5/10
Episode 3: 8/10

Great show, just a little bit of bad acting and CGI. But I did enjoy this short lived show.
