  • Depends on the episodes

    Some of the episodes are charming, humorous, exciting, or fantastic in some other way. Others however could have used more time on quality writing and better direction. The pacing is just awful in some episodes making it longer and duller than normal and thus making it a chore to watch. Clearly the writers, directors, and possibly producers rushed through them. Some were probably not that great to begin with. Often it doesn't follow the consistency of the film which really deviates from the myth to begin with.moreless
  • About this series

    This had wonderful performer for James Woods in 1999.
  • Fans of the movie will rejoice in the excellence of this show based on the movie

    Disney's Hercules is by far one of the best movies to ever be shown. It introduced me, and many others to Greek mythology, and mode it fun for all. After the success with the movie, somebody thought it would be a good idea to make a spin off TV cartoon. Now normally spin offs on movies or TV shows tend to fail. Look at The Cleveland Show and Planet Sheen, but this series actually does a great job staying to the movie. The show is about Hercules in his continuing training to be a hero, and dealing with teen life. Now usually teen issues in a cartoon sound terrible, but Hercules makes it fun to watch with its lovable characters and excellent humor. It makes me wonder why most shows couldn't be like what Hercules did with teen issues. It makes teen issues fun, and makes teens to come over their issues. Unlike recent teen shows like True Jackson, or iCarly, or Sonny with a Chance, this show doesn't add stupid and melodramatic drama to it. The entire cast from the movie is here. You have Hercules, Phil, Pegasus, Zeus, Hades, Cassandra, and so on. Everyone is here, and are still just as goofy and funny like in the movie. The plots are great, and really good. Some are a little predictable, but they are mostly original ideas. The artwork is excellent and stays true to the movie's characters and set designs, and the animation is superb and flows very smoothly in this show. The humor is really good, and each character will make you laugh, especially Hades. My only complaint is that this show only lasted 7 months. I really think they could have kept going with this show, but I guess the creators were running out of ideas. If you haven't seen the film on this series yet, do so, and then see this show.moreless
  • A godly follow up to a fantastic movie.

    I say, spin-offs usually never work; they flub up the characters, kill off important ones, mix up ancient Greece and Rome, etc. This one refuses to do any of that, and successfully manages to get almost everyone (even the minor gods/goddesses!) back for a family reunion of sorts--even Hades and the Muses! It just goes to show that a good spinoff works--and that we get minor-character centered episodes for once--like the Aphrodite one, the Hera and Zeus-centered finale, and many more episodes that keep you reeling on the edge of your seat. Get rid of Hannah Montana, bring this show back!moreless
