Storyline

He battles passed the 48 sons of the gate guardian and arranges to be sold at the annual slave market to the queen, who only wants him in her bed.

Trivia

According to issue 5 of the Offical Xena Magazine, page 46, actor Tony Todd was offered the role of the Blue Priest. He didn't take it however as not long before he was doing Star Trek and didn't want to sit six to eight hours a day again so-soon whilst prosthetics were fixed in place. He later appeared in Hercules as Gladius in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys: Gladiator (1995) and Gilgamesh in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys: Faith (1998). He also appeared in Xena: Warrior Princess (1995) as Cecrops. See more »

I really liked Hercules and the Lost Kingdom. It was a great story and kept me glued from the beginning to the end. It was also wonderful to see Renee O'Connor before she became Xena's best friend, Gabrielle. I think she did a wonderful job as Princess Deianeira. The effects were great also. There is a scene with Deianeira and her father that was really touching. I am glad that I got this video because I missed it when it was first shown on television. Get this video if you are a Hercules/Renee O'Connor fan.
