This was an amusing look at what the ancient gods of Greece might be up to if they were real and still alive in the modern world. Living together in a dilapidated house in London, Apollo, Artemis, Hermes, Aphrodite, Ares, and other gods try to get by, doing their part to run the world while living with the fear that their powers are fading. Into this highly dysfunctional family walks a timid house cleaner and her would-be boyfriend. The ensuing plots, counter-plots, and adventures are a diverting and well-thought-out romp through issues of family, love, death, and one's place in the world.
