“Percy Jackson and the Olympians” review

Updated weekly

“Percy Jackson and the Olympians” is a new show based on the popular book series “Percy Jackson and the Olympians.”

The show focuses on a demigod, Perseus Jackson.

The book was written by Rick Riordan, and he created the show along with Jonathan E. Steinberg.

The first episode was released Dec. 19, 2023 and the final episode came out Jan. 30, 2024.

The main trio is played by Walker Scobell as Percy Jackson, Azriel Dalman as young Percy Jackson, Leah Sava Jeffries as Annabeth Chase and Aryan Simhadri as Grover Underwood.

Other cast members include Charlie Bushnell as Luke Castellan, Virginia Kull as Sally Jackson, Timm Sharp as Gabe Ugliano, Glynn Turman as Chiron, Jason Mantzoukas as Dionysus, Adam Copeland as Ares, Megan Mullally as Alecto and Dior Goodjohn as Clarisse La Rue.

If you are a big fan of the books, like I am, you should watch the show; it is worth the time and money.

Episode One: I Accidentally Vaporize My Pre-Algebra Teacher
Episode One: “I Accidentally Vaporize My Pre-Algebra Teacher”

Episode one is a great start to the show.

It captures the many emotions throughout the episode, both sad and happy, in an amazing way, and the actors were great choices.

It perfectly captures the mother-son relationship between Sally and Percy and shows a realistic connection between the two.

Percy makes some funny comments that will have you laughing, and the CGI in the show helps to further the show’s magic and wonder.

There are a few scenes that will leave you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next.

There are some minor changes that the show made, but so far nothing too major.

Not everything is perfect, and I don’t agree with some of the changes that were made, but again, nothing too major that it changes the entire plot of the story.

This episode gets a 9/10. It brought to life what the movie failed to do. Even with the changes, the first few chapters of “The Lightning Thief” were well represented.
