Episode Summary

EDIT
One Fowl Day
AIRED:
The pig Katherine told Hercules of her desire to become human. Hearing this, Aphrodite turned Katherine into a woman in her own image. The human Katherine happily stripped off all her clothes to roll in the mud. Meanwhile, Ares punished Autolycus and Iolaus for turning Discord into a chicken. Mistaken for the Big-footed Two-headed Forest People of legend, the pair was on display at a circus when Hercules rescued them. In the end, Aphrodite turned Katherine back into a pig, and happily rejoined her family.moreless

  • Continuing on from the previous episode, Aphrodite turns the pig Katherine into a human, while Ares, angry about their turning Discord into a chicken, extracts his revenge on Iolaus and Autolycus by chaining them together. Another terrible episode...moreless

    As if 'Porkules' wasn't bad enough, the story continues for another episode!



    This is one of my least favourite episodes; The sort of thing that I sat through once just to say that I've seen every episode, but don't exactly rush back to view again.



    As I said in my review for 'Porkules', I completely understand that they had think quick and come up with some creative ideas to cover for Kevin Sorbo's relative absence due to health problems, but even so, this is a BAD episode.



    Alexandra Tydings, who ordinarily plays Aphrodite, here also doubles up and plays the human form of Katherine. She does lot's of 'funny' things such as rolling in mud and putting her head in her soup bowl, but it doesn't exactly make for a very pleasing episode.



    Meanwhile, Ares punishes Iolaus and Autolycus for turning Discord into a chicken by cuffing them together... casting a spell that leaves them naked... turning them into ogre-like creatures... on and on it goes, but it doesn't get much better.



    Michael Hurst (who also directs) and Bruce Campbell go through the motions, but nothing can save this terrible episode.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Nitpick: When Iolaus says to Autolycus that they should find clothes, Auto replies that he doesn't know how they would get them on considering the fact that their hands are chained together. However, in the next scene, they steal sacks and are wearing them with armholes cut out. How did they get those on?

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Hercules: (when Aphrodite finds him with Katherine the pig) Don't ask.
      Aphrodite: (laughing) Don't tell! I'd expect this sort of thing from Ares, but for you, Herc, it's a little kinky!
      Hercules: Oh, you wish.

    • Barnabus: (as Discord the giant chicken comes after them) Why did the chicken cross the road?!
      Autolycus: To kill us all!

  • NOTES (1)

    • Disclaimer: No giant poultry was tripped, plucked, barbecued, deep-fried or otherwise assaulted during the production of this motion picture. Katherine's owners are orthodox vegetarians.
