Hooked on Clash of the Gods

I've been watching this show on the History Channel, Clash of the Gods, and it's awesome.
Hercules pisses off Hera by being Hercules.  She sends madness to him.  He kills his children.  He does the twelve labors.  Then, he commits suicide becuase the twelve labors didn't help him rid himself of his guilt.
King Minos decides to keep his prized bull to himself.  Posiedon gets pissed and gets Minos' wife to fall in love with the bull.  The bull bears the Minotaur.  Athens and Crete go back and forth and the Cretian's kill Athenian virgins by sticking them in the labyrinth with the Minotaur until Theseus comes by and kills the Minotaur.  But, as luck would have it, Theseus doesn't raise the white sail, like his dad told him to do, on his way back to Athens and so his dad,  King Aegis, throws himself into the water and dies.
What's in store today?  How about an episode on the Lord of the Rings.  I'm wondering what the profs are going to say about that.
