The Helen of Troy miniseries on USA today failed apparently because the
writer lacked the nerve to tell the classic story, and instead made up
own. Instead of using Homer's Illiad as a starting point, the TVsters
seemed to turn to the 1956 film as the primary source--turning the
seduction/kidnap of Helen into a big ol' love story.
So many key elements were missing: the interventions of the gods, the
quarrel between Achilles and Agamemnon, the killing of Patroclus in
armor, Achilles subsequent killing of Hector, etc. This was the
of what we know of the myth of the Trojan War.
And major characters are triviliazed or disappeared: Hector's glory on TV
as a second banana to Paris; mighty Ajax gets a mention, little more;
Diomedes, Nestor, Idonmoneus are absent. On the Trojan side, Aeneas,

I sense the writers chickened out of grappling with a different kind of
plot, and thereby missed an opportunity. The difficult interplay among
Greek heroes, the complicated moral choices on both sides, the tragic
savagery of war, while existing to small degrees in the series, took back
seat to a more or less conventional love story.
Too bad. Production values were fair, and some of the elements were
to make something better.
