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.

Kevin Smith who played Ares could have been Hercules. In Robert Weisbrot's book, 'Hercules The Legendary Journeys - An Insider's Guide to the Continuing Adventures,' Hercules producer Eric Gruendemann stated: "Before Kevin was cast(as Ares), we actually tried to get him in as a possible person to play Hercules for the (original TV movies), but we weren't able to make it work in terms of timing because he had other commitments. But he is such a huge talent, and I was always thinking. "I'm gonna get him back in these shows in some way." See more »

When fantasy, adventure and comedy collide, they make a great entertaining show that doesn't take itself too seriously. Add to that the stunning performance of the two leads, the beautiful scenery, the highly imaginative plots and the cleverly constructed titles...and you'll have your tasty brew!
