No program’s perfect. I’ve never enjoyed “Epic,” because it feels like everybody’s in on a joke that they’re hell-bent on running into the ground. Peter Wyngarde’s in it, and he seems to be having fun, at least.
Our son enjoyed it more than I did, although he was a little confused by some of it. He was very excited and worried by the conveyor belt-sawblade climax – an old deathtrap of silent movies that had infuriated him in a Batman episode that had been shown about a year before this – and went upstairs humming Laurie Johnson’s Avengers theme.
