Percy Jackson and the Olympians show is worth the watch

In recent years many beloved childhood books have been turned into movies and shows. Fans have been overjoyed to see their childhood wonderlands and stories brought to life. After 20 years and poorly adapted movies, Percy Jackson fans finally get to see the glimmering lake and magical hills of Camp Half-Blood come to their screens.

The new Percy Jackson and the Olympians TV show is a new and innovative take on the Percy Jackson and the Olympians book series. The TV series captures the magic, wonder, thrill, and humor that was so loved in the books and brings new adventures for Percy, Annabeth, and Grover to explore. The changes made to the plot of the book have only enhanced the story and have brought new and interesting twists. The changes made to the show have allowed book readers, who would’ve known every plot point, to get invested in the show and feel the suspense because they are seeing these stories unfold for the first time. Rick Riordan, the author of the series, was a producer and writer on the series and has said that he is very happy with the changes made to the show.

 The books were not written with a TV adaptation in mind, so viewers should not get upset when they have to make changes because it would not translate well to television.

With all of this said, the show is not perfect and there are changes that could be made to improve the second season. But the show does the books justice and is an adaptation that new fans and old fans alike can be proud to watch.
