Plot Summary

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 Characters often measure distances in the metric system which was gradually developed in the Renaissance, perfected in the late 18th century, and made internationally popular only in the mid 20th century. It can be assumed that conversion to modern units is part of the "translation" we are hearing of what they said. See more »

Crazy Credits 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 »
Quotes Ares: I can't believe you have these mortals convinced that you're this "Kevin Sorbo" character.
