20 MINUTES IS LONG ENOUGH TO ENDURE THESE MYTHIC BRATS.
12 August 2001 | by (Cardiff,Wales.) – See all my reviews

"Young Hercules" is undoubtedly the poor relation in the wonderful action-adventure franchise that brought us "HERCULES:THE LEGENDARY JOURNEYS" and "XENA:WARRIOR PRINCESS",for my money the two greatest shows in TV history.In "HERCULES:TLJ" Kevin Sorbo brought the titular character to vivid life in his warm portrayal and side-kick Iolaus was memorably played by Michael Hurst who took this role and ran with it.However,in "YOUNG HERCULES" these characters are portrayed as teenagers by Ryan Gosling as Herc and Dean O'Gorman as Iolaus.Gosling looks nothing like Sorbo and is a droopy eyed,long faced youth who was a poor replacement for the far better Ian Bohen who played the role in the superior TV movie of the same name and in a few episodes of the parent show.O'Gorman who played Iolaus in those as well was more restrained when partnered with the more cerebral Bohen but alongside Gosling behaves throughout like a boorish and cocky lout who looks too devious to be a hero and although he resembles a young Michael Hurst he possesses none of the charisma and genial warmth that the latter brought to the role of Iolaus.Special effects and fight scenes are up to par though and make this show worth watching but the "football hooligan" aura that the stars possess make it something of a chore to watch regularly and the episodes outstay their welcome at a sparse 20 minutes or so.It was little surprise when this show was cancelled after a single season.
