If anything, Season Three's DVD packaging is even BETTER than Seasons One and Two of this impressive adventure/fantasy TV series! Not only do we get all 22 episodes on DVD, including the stellar "Mercenary", "Long Live the King", "The Hind Trilogy", "Surprise" and the comic "Les Contemptible" -- but we are also treated with interviews and audio commentaries by star Kevin Sorbo and his stunning wife, actress Sam Jenkins Sorbo (who met Kevin during "Prince Hercules"), Michael Hurst (Iolaus), Rob Tapert (executive producer) , Eric Gruendemann (co-executive producer) and Wayne Rose (First Assistant Director). Everyone has something to contribute, including personal recollections of the episodes, friends, stunt men, locations and guest actors. It sincerely adds to a watcher's viewing pleasure.
The quality of each DVD is remarkable; with stunning clarity and audio. The series, filmed in New Zealand, takes full advantage of the glorious scenery which we are treated to in each and every episode. The set pieces, some that are familiar and others which are new, continue to be a spectacular part of HERCULES. As are the wonderful array of guest actors, including the ever talented Rene Naufahu ("The Lady And the Dragon"/TALES OF THE SOUTH SEAS), Claudia Black ("Atlantis"/FARSCAPE), Jeremy Roberts (The Mercenary/THE MEXICAN) , Lindsey (L.L.) Ginter ("Rock and a Hard Place"/PEARL HARBOR, S.W.A.T.Read more ›
Kevin Sorbo aka Hercules favortie episode is included in this season. "Mercenary" is that episode. It's a great episoe where Hercules and a mercenary must defend themselves from Tremor like Worms and a bunch of pirates. It's a great episode and I can see why it's Kevins favorite.
There are two episodes with the goddess of love Aprhodite. "Love Takes a Holiday" and "Reign of Terror" both have her in it played by the lovely Alexandra Tydings. She is so hot in all her episodes. All her episodes are real good and are full of laughs. Sam Rami(Ex Pro) always made sure all the episodes with Aphrodite were great.
"Love Takes a Holiday" is great in a way in that Kevin Sorbo isn't in it. Iolaus(Michael Hurst) stars as the lone hero in this one. He teams up with Aprhrodite to save a town from Aphestus the god of fire.
There are a ton of good episodes in this season. The christmas tribute one is here in "A Star to Guide Them." Hercules fights a mystic mummy in "Mummy Dearest." Hercules also gets sent back to 18 century France in "Les Contemptibles." He finds a new wife, battles his brother Ares and does much more in this legendary season.
Season 3 is awesome. It's better than 2 and I'd say equal to 1. The extras on this one are the best yet, and the DVDs just keep getting better. Fans of the show won't want to miss out on this one.
I looked around to see what I could find out about this DVD set. Read more
