"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.

Hercules Season 5 DVD Collection

"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"
Nearly perfect, but with one blemish
Jeffrey D. Jenkins | Alexandria, VA United States | 01/11/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Over the years that I had watched this show, I had seen steady improvement each and every season, which led to a stellar Season Five. Hercules: TLJ is now a finely tuned machine, running on all cylinders like never before. Unlike past seasons, which was a collection of loosely linked episodes, there was a driving storyline throughout the season. It fell one episode short of a perfect season though, when the celluloid-wasting "Greece is Burning" was put on the air.
Stuff to look for this year:
Nebula gets a social status upgrades, Hercules becomes the followers of a group of Celtic leaders, an assassin of the gods of Eire finds her heart (and sneaks into someone else's), the present day strikes back, a certain British king finds that evil never works, an other-worldly jester finds his courage, Iolaus finds that losing something a third time may just be the charm, a nefarious plot device from Xena: WP is finally wrapped up, and the end of the world is at hand, too.
And you wonder why I like this season the best? This is my answer."
