In all 22 Season Four episodes, follow Kevin Sorbo in his iconic role as the sword-wielding strongman who travels the world helping others in need. Joining in for the mythic mayhem are Hercules’s dedicated friend Iolaus (Michael Hurst), as well as familiar faces played by guest stars Lucy Lawless (Xena: Warrior Princess), Ted Raimi (Xena: Warrior Princess), Bruce Campbell (Burn Notice) and Gina Torres (Firefly). Loaded with explosive action, fantastical locations, and sparkling wit, this five-disc set is an adventure-seeker’s dream come true.

The product itself was decent quality. Arrived new and factory sealed like it was supposed to with no damage to the case or discs and everything played okay.
If you're viewing this for the 1st time you can count on season 4 to continue to provide the action, drama, comedy & melodrama of previous seasons. Added this season are: Hercules' past; even a little music & dance; some new characters to cheer & to hiss.
Aspects of this season are a departure from previous seasons. While some episodes are hilarious, others seem to reflect a new need to be heavily meaningful. Of course, the show was evolving, and perhaps Sorbo's health crisis was a large factor also. I don't know.
Whether due to health or promotional tours or whatever, Kevin Sorbo is perhaps on screen less in this season than any other BUT season 4 episodes are as entertaining as any - in some cases, more so. The writers came up with extremely creative ways to deal with less on-screen Sorbo time. I actually didn't notice it until it was pointed out to me.
I'm sure Hercules enthusiasts will enjoy season 4, but may prefer the newer edition. While this older edition provides lovely pictures within the old style packaging, the old-style menus are pretty awkward - cycling you through a series of choices before each episode, then automatically returning you to the main menu (to be "re-cycled") after each episode.
Overall, I was happy with this purchase, but happier with my subsequent purchase of the 2013 release of Season 4.
