  • A Lady in Hades

    A Lady in Hades was a perfect episode of Young Hercules and I really enjoyed watching because the story was well written, engaging, intriguing and full of character and plot development. It was awesome to see Eurydice trying to fight for a girl she turned into a Bacchai. Hercules really went all out trying to save Eurydice from spending eternity in Tartarus because of her Bacchai past. Jason was able to experience some the perks of being a close friend with Hercules, like visiting his father in the afterlife. I though Jason's nick name bunion boy was hilarious, hahaha! In the end Hercules succeeds and leaves Hades on good terms. I love the humor and campiness of the series. I look forward to watching the next episode!!!!!!!!!moreless

  • NOTES (2)

    • Iolaus, played by Dean O'Gorman, does not appear in this episode. He is said to be manning the dunking booth at a festival.

    • The estate that was used for the Elysian Fields was also used for the wedding scene in the Hercules, the Legendary Journeys episode "The Wedding of Alcmene".


    • Charon: Oh, the pain in my liver, I wouldn't wish it on Prometheus.

      In punishment for giving fire to humans, the Titan Prometheus was punished by Zeus by being chained to a mountainside and have his liver torn from him daily by a giant eagle or vulture. Prometheus is eventually freed from captivity by Hercules.

    • This episode replaces Orpheus with Hercules. Hades is depicted as a younger man, and it is quite humorous to see how he acts. In accordance with mythology, Hades doesn't really care. Tartarus is depicted as a gaping hole and it looks like a vortex sucks you in. The Elysian Fields looks like a pair of large, celestial looking doors. Jason being reunited with his father is an allusion to another story about the Underworld in which a man travels to see his father to seek his advice.
