His strengths are awe-inspiring. His obstacles are beyond the reach of any mere mortal. His trials are the stuff of myth. But nothing will prepare Hercules for what lies ahead in all 24 action-loaded episodes of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys Season 2. Kevin Sorbo once again picks up the sword of the iconic hero as he travels through the ancient world with his friend Iolaus (Michael Hurst) in a never-ending struggle against both human and supernatural evils. Respected and reviled for his parentage as the son of Zeus and a beautiful mortal woman, Hercules faces a slew of enemies – from the mother of all monsters to vengeful gods and stealthy shapeshifters – in his quest to rid the world of inhumane cruelties. It’s unrivaled adventure laced with wit, humor and even a spark of romance in the undying tale of the greatest fighter the world has ever known.

This review is for the 5-disk version. It is by Deluxe Digital Video, the same company that makes the Murder, She Wrote and Rockford Files sets. Although I have looked for it repeatedly, because they are recorded at 4-hour format, I have never noticed any video degredation in those sets.
The same cannot be said for Hercules. The video quality is terrible!
One of the things about Hercules is that it is a visual delight, the scenery, the costumes, the good-looking men and women, the computer generated special effects. The video on the 5-disk version is horribly overcompressed, full of rectangular, blocky artifacts that greatly detract from the pleasure of the viewing.
I paid $35 each for seasons 3 and 4 several years ago. The 7-disk version is now only $5 more than the 5-disk version. It's worth at least twice as much. In addition to the video quality, the 7-disk version also has extras. The 5-disk version has none. Even though I already bought the 5-disk version, I just bought the 7-disk version.
Do yourself a favor and don't bother with the 5-disk version.
Kevin Sorbo continues to amaze as Hercules and Michael Hurst as his sidekick.
I'm not much into shows like this one in most cases. However, after purchasing and viewing seasons 1 & 3, I had to buy season 2. This series is action packed, and, if you just happen to like Greek mythology, then, this would be a treat for you. I like the Greek myths that is why i bought seasons 1 & 3 and gave this series a chance. The series mentions most if not all the greek gods. Like Zeus The all powerful King of The Gods (Hrcules' Father) his step mother Harra, The evil queen of the gods, his half brother Aries,he's the God of War, and many more, you will also meet Hercules Mortal mother. Harra hates Hercules because he is a constant reminder of Zeus's affair with Hercules's mother. I rate this series a 10 out of 10
