Show Summary

This is the story of a time long ago, A time of myth and legend, when the Earth was still young. The ancient gods were petty and cruel, and they plagued mankind with suffering and besieged them with terrors. For centuries the people had nowhere to turn, no one to look to for help. Until he arrived. He was a man like no other. Born of a beautiful mortal woman, but fathered by Zeus, king of the gods. Hercules possessed a strength the world had never seen, a strength surpassed only by the power of his heart....No matter what obstacle, as long as there were people crying for help, there was one man who would never rest --- Hercules.


    Terrible Life Lessons Taught by TV Heroes

    Not all television heroes practice what they supposedly preach, and some fall so far off the wagon they become hypocrites.

    • Seriously FLAWED

      Hercules claims to love his deceased family exclusively. He has 'relations' with some women and not with others giving this excuse. HYPOCRITE lol

      I think maybe they scrambled the episodes a lot lmao
    • Hercules: The Legendary Journeys...it was just good fun.

      I honestly forgot what a good show Hercules was until I was halfway through Xena viewing and said, "Somethings missing". And I realized, as much as I have loved Xena, I liked Hercules too. They were a pair of fun shows and are twice as better when seen together. The show wasn't really accurate to the myth of Hercules, but if it had been it certainly wouldn't or couldn't have been the fun romp that is was. Hercules was turned into a noble guy the world could relate too and love. The supporting cast was wonderful, especially (of course) Micheal Hurst. Watching it I sometimes think "there will never be a show this all-out fun again". Even with the troublesome inconsistencies in the universe you can't help but have fun watching this show.moreless
    • hercules the legendary journes was a good action packed mythical show.

      i liked the show a lot i used to watch it when it was on hercules. i think the show had alot of action scenes and the show had really good excelent stories. but the show is about herclues his family was killed and he blames the gods so he goes on a journey of helping people in nedd that are having problems against the gods. like hera and hades and others. and he is accompened by houles who is his sidekicked that does his job to protect hercules or help him but herclues is usuly the one to help him in time of need that leads to houles being jealous down the road. but all in all its a really good show i thoughtmoreless

      I didn't watch much of the series but the episodes I did watch was good while other had flaws. Anyway, I think this series is good in some ways like the acting or some of the special effects. To anyone who love the different version of Hercules might want to start looking at this series. I am glad I was able to see the series when it was still airing on television. And good luck to those who go look for this series where ever you decide to go. Finally, I hope to see more good thing from the network that air the series.moreless
    • Very well done

      This show in my opinion, wasnt as epic as what Xena is. I personally prefer a darker series, one reason why I like Xena. But overall, Hercules The Legendary Journeys is a worthwhile experience, giving with it the same greatness aspects offered in Xena Warrior Princess. I easily reccommend this TV show to anyone into action and adventure. I really liked this show, especially how it tied in with Xena so well. great great great SHOW ! !! ! !! !! ! ! !! !!!! !!! ! ! ! ! ! ! !! !! !! ! ! ! ! ! !moreless
