Just how many multi-headed dogs, vengeful serpent ladies and evil-minded miscreants can one demi-God handle? If Hercules' extraordinary second season is any indication then the answer will be quite a few.
From battling Echidna, the half-woman-half-serpent monster, to taming Cerberus, the hound of Hades, to outfoxing the cunning yet conniving Autolycus, Hercules has his mighty hands full. Yet he still manages to free Iolaus from Gorgus' dreaded catacombs and to organize the world's first Olympiad.
It's all part of the epic Season Two romp that established "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" as one of television's most unique and popular action series.
Kevin Sorbo's endearing tongue-in-cheek-portrayal of the world's greatest hero highlights all 24 exciting Season Two episodes, including his acclaimed directorial debut, "The Apple."
Digitally re-mastered and complete with entertaining multi-media bonus features, "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys Season Two" on DVD marks another milestone for Hercules' fans and collectors everywhere.
- Audio and video commentary by Kevin Sorbo and assistant director Wayne Rose
- 24 episodes on six discs
- CD-ROM disc includes: Director and actor bios, series trivia, "Hercules" Chronicles, photo gallery, screensaver, "Your Guide to the Gods"
- Bonus disc contains a 60-minute interview with executive producer/director Rob Tapert, costume design gallery, special effect & blooper reels

Also loved the extra disc with the Rob Tapert interview (he gets wonderfully emotional at one point with regards to his creation) and outtakes (etc. - and I had absolutely NO tech problem with this extra disc as was mentioned by another reviewer) and the single episode discussion/over-view done by Kevin Sorbo, including "The Apple" and "Cast a Giant Shadow" were just so much fun to listen to -- BUUUT ... Where was Michael Hurst this time? He was the co-star of the show yet there were no episode commentaries from him as there was in Season One and that just seemed so wrong. His presence is sorely missed this time. Hope to hear him in the Season Three DVDs!
Nevertheless, the GREAT stuff out-weighs the missing and I highly recommend this DVD package to any fans. LOVED IT!

The only downsides: the series' first "clip show," and the fact that the second season commerative coin is no longer included for free (mail-in card for it plus S&H). But all and all, a nicely done second season.
The episodes from season two are:
King of Thieves
All That Glitters
What's in a name?
Siege At Naxos
Under a Broken Sky
Mother of All Monsters
Fire Down Below
Cast a Giant Shadow
Highway To Hades
Sword of Veracity
Once A Hero
Let the Games Begin
King for A Day
The Wedding of Alemene
Centaur Mentor Journey
Cave of Echoes
It is truly difficult to pick out a favorite episode, but the Sword of Veracity stands out for me as an example of WHY the show is so popular. Having met Kevin Sorbo in 2008, he truly fit the role and began a remarkable TV career.
Well worth the repurchase.
I can get the disc to play the Rob Tapert interview by simply pressing "play" after the Disc error warning, and I can get to the menu screen, but every time I try to select something other than the Tapert interview, boom, disc error again.
Anyone else experiencing something similar?
**UPDATE**: I returned the set to my local Best Buy, and tried to exchange it for one that worked. Out of the three sets the store had in stock, two were defective and only one worked. So, it's not a universal thing, but it's not just my single copy, either. So check your bonus discs carefully, Herc fans!
