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.
