serie tvHercules

This is the story of a time long ago, A time of myth and legend, when the Earth was still young. The ancient gods were petty and cruel, and they plagued mankind with suffering and beseiged them with terrors. For centuries the people had nowhere to turn, no one to look to for help. Until he arrived. He was a man like no other. Born of a beautiful mortal woman, but fathered by Zeus, king of the gods. Hercules possessed a strength the world had never seen, a strength surpassed only by the power of his heart....No matter what obstacle, as long as there were people crying for help, there was one man who would never rest --- Hercules.

Stagione 1

1x1 - La creatura malefica

È un orrore profondo quello che colpisce Hercules al ritorno da una campagna con l’amico Iolao: un’enorme sfera di fuoco s’intrufola nella sua casa attraverso la finestra della camera da letto e consuma la moglie, Deianeira. Subito dopo è la volta dei tre figli piccoli. Roso dall’odio, a questo punto Hercules agisce solo per cieca vendetta e intraprende un cammino di distruzione che s’interrompe solo quando un giorno è spinto a soccorrere un villaggio inerme contro una demoniaca donna serpente.

1x2 - Hercules e il ciclope

Un intero villaggio è terrorizzato da un gigantesco Ciclope, e la situazione suggerisce a Hercules una visita. Il ciclope ha scaraventato un commesso vaggiatore su un albero e ha deviato il rifornimento idrico del villaggio che serve a irrigare la sacra vigna di Era. Ma Hercules ha imparato che ci sono sempre due lati della medaglia. Gli abitanti del villaggio hanno perseguitato i ciclopi per anni. Hercules sconfigge il ciclope in battaglia, ma gli risparmia la vita e i due diventano alleati. Insieme respingono i sanguinari tirapiedi di Giunone, e il ciclope fa la pace con gli abitanti del villaggio.

1x3 - Il viaggio verso Calidone

A group of refugees in search of a safe haven came upon the ghost town of Parthus, where the groups leader, Broteas, stole a golden chalice from Hera's temple. The theft brought down the wrath of Hera, and only Hercules could protect the refugees. The seer traveling with him explained that the cursed chalice had been a gift from Zeus to a young maiden of Parthus. Hercules saved the refugees from a violent rock storm, evil bounty hunters and a giant pterodactyl. He flung the chalice toward the horizon and saw the group safely to Calydon.

1x4 - Hercules e la cerimonia del vino

A power struggle threatened to send the peaceful kingdom of Meliad into war. Fearing the worst Queen Camilla summoned Hercules to the annual Festival of Dionysus. If Dionysus, the god of wine, did not find King Iphicles worthy to rule another year, ten lovely virgins would become drunk and slaughter the King in a terrible frenzy. Iphicles was a good king, but he was still in danger. Pentheus, the king's elder son, plotted with Ares, the god of war, to overthrow his father. Hercules battled a deadly eel and then overcame Pentheus, saving the king.

1x5 - Hercules contro Marte

Ares thrived on conflict and bloodshed. Hercules did not share Ares' passion for killing, and when Ares tried to assemble an army of teenage boy-soldiers to do his bidding, Hercules knew he had to stop him. With help from the powerful blacksmith Atalanta and the young widow Janista, Hercules freed Janista's son Titus and his friend Ximenos from Ares' spell. Then he confronted a representation of Ares in his cave, and after a fierce battle, Hercules beheaded his bloodthirsty foe. Titus learned that the way of the true warrior is not to kill, but to destroy forces of evil.

Bronagh, leader of the Celts on the island of Eire, told Hercules he was their ""Chosen One"" -- chosen to lead the Celts to freedom. But the gods of Eire didn't like the Celts worshipping Druids, so they sent Morrigan, a demigod assasin, to destroy the Druids. However, when she killed the Druid guardian of justice, she unwittingly took his place. Hercules, who finally stopped blaming himself for Iolaus' death, defeated Morrigan in battle, but the Druids explained that if she died, the spirit of justice would die with her. They disappeared, leaving Hercules to care for Morrigan.

5x4 - Hercules e il genio della lampada

Salmoneus and Autolycus obtained a Sultan's lamp and released Jinni the genie, who gave them three wishes to share. Autolycus asked to be invisible.

Salmoneus, meanwhile couldn't decide whether to ask for more sensitivity or more ruthless energy, so Jinni gave him both in the form of two clones -- Cry Baby Sal and Hyper Sal. Forfeiting their third wish, they were returned to normal and imprisoned inside Jinni's lamp. But they escaped, and Autolycus used the third wish to give the lonely genie a roomful of clones.
