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.

Whenever Hera is the cause of Hercules' troubles, you see a set of eyes surrounded by Peacock feathers and hear a strange cawing sound. The sound is a peacock's call as the peacock was Hera's signature animal. See more »

The end credits for each episode of both Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess included an additional humourous message near the end of the credits. They were usually in the style of the "No animals were harmed..." messages featured in most end credits. See more »
one of the greatest TV series of all times!!!!!!!!!!!
I loved this show. It had great acting, awesome action sequences, and even better creature designs. The stories are faithful to the original Greek legends as well. I really wish this series would keep running, but it quite on it's 6th season. If you can find these on DVD, get them. You won't regret it.
