Hercules: The Legendary Journeys

#1 Post by Baby_Kürsch » 28 Aug 2010 09:35

Im not sure how often American TV shows sow up on European television sets. But Im assuming some do and if they do has anyone ever watched this show? When I was a kid I used to watch Kevin Sorbo (as Hercules) kick butt every Sunday night!! Now all the seasons are on Netflix and I have to say that this show is still campy and fantastic! If you haven't seen this show you should make it a point too cause nothings better than lots of fighting and really cheesy old school c-g-i.

I used to watch it but I thought the spin-off series Xena: Warrior Princess was more entertaining. :)

Hercules was pretty cool, and Xena in the beginning too, but at some point it just got really really awful. The episode where they all sang was the straw for me.

Hercules was good, Xena was better, and Legend Of The Seeker owns them both.

No, it stars Bruce Spence, that elf who died at Helm's Deep and a girl with boobs.

Funny thing, I ran across an episode of Legend of the Seeker a few days ago. Three thoughts crossed my mind: 1) There are some hot chicks here, 2) hey, a transvestite, and 3) this is pretty cheesy. Seemed pretty meh to me, excepting the hot women killing things of course. :mrgreen:

I think it's a great show. You have to get into it, obviously, but once you get to know the characters and the world they live in, it's really involving. I enjoyed myself thoroughly with it's two seasons. And Bridget Reagan is the women that I want to spent the rest of my life with.

Yeah, he had this cool sidekick called Eolous, or something. Together they'd behead dragons, punch down demons and engage in all sorts of pleasantries with hot barely clothed women.

I tried watching Xena on Netflix, but couldn't. It was unbearable. One positive though would be Aphrodite. Damn I love her.

Oh, and I enjoyed Legend Of The Seeker as well. I liked the fact that they did take themselves seriously, most of the time.
