Format: DVD
'Hercules: The Legendary Journeys' is a TV-series that is nowadays often frowned upon or criticised for its clunky SFX, cheesy dialogue and general camp. But I can't help but love it, and I think I'm one of the few fans who prefers this series over its massively more popular spin-off, 'Xena: Warrior Princess', any day. So as soon as I got my hands on a DVD-player that could play Region 1, I also got my hands on this box set, which is vastly superior to its Region 2 counterparts in many ways.

The 5 TV-movies mark the beginning of our hero's journey and also introduce us to the main characters, including Hercules' best friend and partner, Iolaus, his mother, Alcmene, his (future) wife Deianeira and, of course, his almighty father Zeus.

I especially like the very first movie, "Hercules and the Amazon Women", in which we get our first glimpse of the wonderful lifelong friendship between Hercules and Iolaus, which for me has always been the heart of the series more than anything else.

Although the movies can get away with more in terms of blood, gore and swearwords, the 45-minute episodes feel generally darker, which has a lot to do with the fact that the season opens with the fiery death of Hercules' young family by the hands of his evil stepmother Hera, and his subsequent rage at the gods who let this happen to him.

It continues on a slightly lighter note, and these episodes are more family-friendly, tackling issues such as racism, bullying, gangs and arrogance. Towards the end of the season, with darker episodes such as 'Gladiator' and 'The Gauntlet', you might want to send the younger children to bed, though.

I've been a fan of Hercules for a long time, but I've somehow never managed to see any of the first series, and only a couple of movies. So when I saw all five movies, and all episodes of the first series for less than a ten pounds I knew I had to get it. Like most shows, Hercules got better after the first series and is at its most rough here. Iolas is only a recurring character, Ares is largely incorporeal (or a skull on the moon) and there is less of the tongue in cheek humour that makes later seasons so great- but there is still a lot to love. Traces of the future comedic brilliance of Hercules, the origins of Xena and Salmoneus (as well as the actors who later play Gabrielle, Salmoneus, and even Iolas in other roles, along with *two* others from Lucy Lawless) , moments from the credits that you’ve seen a thousand times out of context, Hercules briefly wearing a different outfit… I could go on. There are also commentaries by Kevin Sorbo, and sometimes Micheal Hurst, on at least one episode per disc (making it about one in three), including “Video Commentaries” where they intercut the episode with footage of the actors watching them.

Kevin Sorbo refers to these episodes as season 2 because he considers the 5 telemovies to be season 1. I call the movies season 0. But anyway, thats an unimportant issue. These episodes are where I was introduced to the world of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys when they first aired on Sky 1. The show has aged surprisingly well, despite the CGI creatures (which I thought were amazing when i was younger!) looking rather stiff and dated, yet still not as namby pamby as a lot of the movies that are turning up on the SyFy channel these days.

This season picks up from where the movies left off. After a pub brawl with his best buddy Iolaus, Hercules comes home to his beloved wife and children, only to see them killed instantly by a fireball sent from the wicked goddess Hera. Hercules vows to make Hera pay for killing his family, and begins his own personal war against her, but it doesn't take him long to realise that what he does to protect mortals from the cruelty of the gods has far more meaning than anything he does out of hatred towards Hera.

Kevin Sorbo as Hercules and Michael Hurst as Iolaus have great chemistry together, you believe they really are best friends who will stick by eachother throughout anything, whether its monsters from the underworld, gladiator contests or vengeful gods. Their friendship is really put to the test when Iolaus becomes infatuated with a certain warrior princess who tries to drive the two best friends apart and have them kill eachother!

Fans of Lucy Lawless will be delighted to know that this season also introduces the character of Xena, right before she heads off to have her own adventures in Hercules' highly successful and iconic spin-off series Xena Warrior Princess.
