From the Inside Flap
es:The Legendary Journeys" first burst onto television screens as a series of five action-packed movies. But unlike previous Hercules movies, these didn't feature togas and flowery language. Instead, the producers created a Hercules for the '90s, a regular guy who just happens to possess super-human strength and regularly fights monsters and evil-doers. The movies quickly became a hit and a series was born. Now more than five million viewers follow the weekly exploits of the legendary hero.<br><br>In this official companion to the series, fans of the show get a behind-the-scenes look at what makes "Hercules" so popular. Featuring interviews with the stars and producers; an episode-by-episode guide to the series; a look at the real gods and goddesses behind the myths; dozens of never-before seen photos; and intriguing "Legendary Facts," this companion is a must for fans of all ages.<br><br>Be sure to check out &

However if you're looking for more than just an episode guide there's also lots of other facts and trivia included chronicling the activities and people on the other side of the camera lens; the writers, set design, costumes, stunt work, special effects and much more! There are also lots of photos interspersed through this highly informative book and entertaining tidbits called "Legendary Facts" making this required reading (and owning) for every faithful fan of the show.
Postscript: Since this book only covers the seasons 1, 2 and 3 you'll have to also purchase Weisbrot's `Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, An Insider's Guide to the Continuing Adventures' to get seasons 4, 5 and 6.
A professional historian and teacher, Weisbrot's knowledge of research techniques and ancient mythology combined with his excellent writing skill and fannish interests to provide us with an enchanting tour of the history and universe of one Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.
Interviews with the stars and a detailed knowledge of the episodes provide Weisbrot with all the material he needs to keep the reader turning the pages. The book covers only the first few seasons of what has been hailed as the most popular syndicated action/adventure show of all time. Readers should urge Studios USA to ask Weisbrot to finish what he began.
However, instead of several, generally available pictures, I would have liked to see more photographs of the actors behind the scenes and during filming.
In line with the television series, the book is inconsistent in places and embarassingly full of spelling mistakes. The editorial work on the book was less than accurate and you will find various comments by actors inserted under the wrong episodes.
Also, while filming for Season 6 is starting soon, the Companion only covers the show up to Season 3, missing out some of the best and most interesting episodes.
So one can only hope that a possible 'updated' version will be out soon and that that one will be more accurate!
