Writing the Legend of Young Hercules featurette
I had never hear of You Hercules so I had never watched it until just recently. I did watch Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena Warrior Princess .
I quite enjoyed watching these Dvds. I so far only watched one disc but so far I am liking it. It is a little cheesy but not so bad like some other 90's shows that are aimed towards young audience.
I give this 3 1/2 out of 5.
