Entertaining for Children
4 April 2004 | by KatzeCatKatSee all my reviews

The television series of "Young Hercules" was not a useless one. From my perspective, it was a good show for the younger audience, especially considering it was called YOUNG Hercules. The actors did well in their roles and the show was great for kids. The show was not meant to be as fantastic or awe-inspiring as were the originals, it was meant for younger people. It is an interesting show when one is twelve or thirteen. "Young Hercules" was a means of gaining a wider audience. The story lines had to remain simple enough for children, not complicated as in the adult versions. So when one comments on how foolish something is, they should really look at it in order to understand it better. And after all, it is not serious - it's mythology.
