“Do you understand now?” Freja exclaimed after a longer explanation of her problems. “Yes, you’re afraid that everyone sees you as a dumb bimbo.” said the therapist. Freja looked understanding for a moment, before her posture changed drastically. “No honey, I’m mad that Zeusie-Pouchie over here hasn’t offered me his lightning bolt yet”. Zeus was about to protest but suddenly he transformed, and took the shape of an Olympian Don Juan who commented slyly on Freja’s outburst. That was the fifth time that day.

The ancient gods suffer from split personalities, that divides them between their personalities from the ancient world and their new pop culture identities. A therapist tries to help the gods but it is hard when the gods are more busy arguing about their past than they are with solving their problems. Can the gods unite the two aspects of themselves or are they bound to suffer a fate worse than death – a CGI filled adaptation with Hollywood’s A-list in culturally appropriated roles.
