  • Hercules reunites a parted husband and wife.

    I don't know exactly how to feel about this episode. I didn't hate it and I thought the story of Hercules convinving this woman to leave the pleasure palace was done much better than the "stripper princess" in the Midas story, but it dropped the ball somewhere and I'm not sure where. I actually liked this episode and found it quite watchable in comparrison to some others. I adored that the beautiful Lucina loved an unlikely man and loved him for who he was as opposed to what he looked like, but I think the spirit of the man just seemed off. Even for a gentel soul type-character he seemed to much not right with Lucina. It wasn't his age at all, it was the spirit of the character. After all old Zeus was convincingly seductive with younger women in the Herc. movies. It just didn't work that she would fall for him I guess. Good story I suppose, just bad casting on the part of Atticus.
