I have got all the Hercules DVDS and they're all great to watch. The sets get better and better. In season 5 it's great to see Kevin playing the Soveign again, (it's that black leather outfit he wears! so sexy.) Loved the episodes in Ireland and the introduction of Morigan as a love interest for Hercules, and to see Aries and other gods of different lands. This season gave Kevin and all the other actors a chance to show how well they can act. Loved Greece in burining, that scene of Hercules pouring the bucket of water over him mmm. Can't wait until January to see it and all the great extras that have been included, so roll on next year. Season 5 of Hercules is a must for any DVD collection as is Season 6. Five stars all they way

I've been getting this show for a while for my Aunt who is crazy about Kevin Sorbo. Beside the point, the show in and of itself is good humored, full of surprisingly good (if not sometimes corny) acting and was not afraid to, at times, make fun of itself. I'm pretty sure Mr. Sorbo became the iconic image of Hercules for the 90s generation, and the show, well I'll be honest, I never made it to the 5th season, but I suppose I'll just have to borrow it to see what it's about. Thanks for reading and have a nice day.

Iolaus dies again in this season, and Hercules is extremely distressed through many episodes. This only makes me wonder: if Hercules is willing to go to hell and back, more than once, to bring his friend back to life, why the heck didn't he do so for his wives or kids? Why does the death of his friend affect him so much worse? The wife/kid is replaceable? He makes no effort to bring back a wife or child, but spares no effort when Iolaus dies. As usual, all the female characters are young and gorgeous, but the males are all ages, sizes, and appearances.

In a time of meddling gods and monsters, courage and treachery, Hercules is the strongest man in the world: half man, half god. Relying on his wits and strength, he fights for justice. (Spin-offs include Xena the Warrior Princess and The Young Hercules.)

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.

I DIDNT KNOW WHAT TO SAY SO I COPYED SOMETHING Of course all this jiggling and joggling of body is caused by an unquiet, uncontrolled mind, in a cure for it lies in quieting, controlling and restful erecting the mind. I have found no aid so great as that of making the mind follow the body movements. The motion of an awning mind are not only very jerky and wasteful but they are exceedingly quick. Such a mind vibrates with the speed again destructiveness of lightning, and the owner simply cannot compel it to be absolute be quiet. But he can direct as well as to a very great extent. By directing the mind to follow the body motions, which are infinitely slower than mental motions, he can accomplish great things to ward quieting the line. By a little practice the mind catches a slower, more regular vibrations of the body, after which it is quite possible still further quiet it to a complete standstill as in making the mind a blank.

this is one of my christmas list items and it was a very good item at a good price, thank you. this is the tv show from when i was a kid and they are not so bad as are the ones on today tv. i would rather pay to buy good things for kids to watch than to allow them to see the evil and bad tv shows of today.

I think most fans would agree that Season four of "Hercules" was the worst season of the show's 6 year run, if for no other reason than that Kevin Sorbo barely appeared in about 2/3 of the episodes (apparently, this was due to the fact that Sorbo was ill during the filming of this season). Nevertheless, in Season five, the makers of "Hercules" atone for the sins of the previous season and deliver the best season of "Hercules" yet.

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").

If you were a fan of this chronologically and geographically challenged show, then you will want to enjoy it again. Having the DVD sets is the perfect way to do that. If you missed Hercules the first time around, start with season one and work on from there.

The plastic prongs that hold in the dvds - 2 were broken and the dvds were loose in the box and 3 of the dvds were scratched. I tested them in the dvd player and they played so I didn't send them back. This series is really good.
