Zeus is Hercules' father, who had seduced a mortal woman. Hera, Zeus's wife and queen of the gods, hates Hercules and wishes him dead. Iolaus has been Hercules' best friend since childhood. Autolycus is known as the "King of Thieves". Greedy Salmoneus, a traveling salesman, shows his true friendship to Hercules when it counts. The Amazon Queen Ephiny, his centaur mentor Cheiron and the legendary Argonaut Jason appear this season. An episode guide has already been posted, so I won't discuss the individual episodes. There is the usual mixture of humorous and dark episodes.
Serena, Hercules' wife in a another history line (as depicted in Season 3, the Golden Hind trilogy), returns in the episode "My Best Girl's Wedding". Serena and Hercules (Sam Jenkins and Kevin Sorbo) are married in real life! The Golden Hind trilogy was in 1997, they married in 1998, and she appeared in this season in 1999.

Season five sees Hercules traveling away from Greece, to Babylonia, Ireland and Scandinavia and meeting the various immortals that inhabit these lands. Much of the season forms a continuing storyline about Hercules' attempts to stop Dahak, the great destroyer, from taking over the world. Watchers of "Xena" will recall that Dahak first appeared in Season three of "Xena" and was the father of Gabrielle's evil daughter, Hope. However, whereas the whole Gabrielle/Hope/Dahak storyline was mishandled in "Xena" (I felt that the writers didn't take full advantage of the potential of this storyline), the writers of "Hercules" do make the most of the Dahak plot arc and deliver a compelling adventure that that had me eagerly awaiting each new episode.
Other highlights of this season include appearances by "Edith Sidebottom" (Michael Hurst in drag) as the Widow Twanky; Angela Dotchin (who later went on to star in "Jack of All Trades") as Nautica; Ryan Gosling as a student at Chiron's Academy; and a reasonably large number of appearances by Kevin Smith (as Ares, god of war), who was noticeably absent from Season four of "Xena" (which was made and screened concurrently with this season of "Hercules").
