Storyline

In this quasi-mythological costume series, Hercules (in Greek Herakles), the noble bastard son of Zeus, hence hated to death by his step-mother Hera, doesn't live as an Olympian after accomplishing his Works and the Argonauts' journey, as classical myth has it, but relinquishes immortality and continues to fight both human and supernatural evil on earth, as a wanderer in and beyond Greece, usually accompanied by his human side-kick Iolaus and sometimes by dodgy Salmoneus. Countless are the challenges, either especially set up by Hera or just on his way, but he always triumphs against all odds, delivers otherwise often hopeless mortals and moves on to new adventures. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

A scene in an episode in which Hercules and Autolycus travel to the past, Autolycus (Bruce Campbell) has an argument with his younger self. The entire scene is played out exactly like a scene from Army of Darkness (1992) where Ash (Campbell) fights the Evil Ash (most of the dialogue is also the same). Series producer Sam Raimi directed that film. See more »

Goofs

In various episodes Aphrodite refers to Hercules as her older brother while in others she calls him her younger brother. See more »

One of the best shows of the 90's...
5 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a great show. I grew up watching shows like this. Shows that are campy, fun and meant to just be entertaining. Kevin Sorbo is a perfect choice for Hercules and Michael Hurst does a great job as Hercules little but tough friend. And there are plenty of babes in the episodes that kept me watching all those years and still keep me watching. It's sad that shows like this (Brisco County Jr. and Jack of all Trades)don't seem to have enough of a following. I hear that they are making a new Hercules movie and I know that Kevin Sorbo might be too old for the role but I hope he gets a part to play in the movie. Again what a great show and I enjoy watching it now as much as ever.
