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.

Trivia

The character of Xena was inspired by Brigitte Lin's character from The Bride with White Hair (1993), and was meant to have a character arc lasting three episodes ending with her death. However producers looked ahead to a possible spin-off and decided to spare her. The three part arc on Hercules was so successful with viewers and ratings that studio execs gave the go-ahead for the Xena spin-off. See more »

Goofs

Aphrodite refers to Hercules as both "older brother" and "younger brother" several times throughout the series. See more »

Miss this show
15 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

I'm glad Kevin Sorbo has moved on and has a baby, but I miss him as Hercules. I loved it almost as much as I loved Xena. I'm a great fan of Greek myth, so when I saw this show, I feel for it immediately. It was fun and had it's own spin on things with a modern humor which made it all the more lovable. Michael Hurst was a wonderful actor and was adorable as Iolaus. I loved most of the characters that popped up here and there. Should go down in tv history as groundbreaking.
