Discusses the positive aspects of this book over others 6 avril 1998
Par amimalia@msn.com - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Ei yi yi yi! Your daughter shrieks as she forward rolls across the living room, leaps the dining room table and high kicks her teddy bear into next week. Meanwhile, your neighbor's son is busy decapitating imaginary Hydras in your front yard. Confused? Bemused? Not anymore, because you just purchased the book that explains it all, Hercules and Xena, by James Van Hise.
While not the only ox in the Augeian stables, so to speak, this is the only one to have information on both shows, Hercules The Legendary Journeys(HTLJ), Xena, Warrior Princess(XWP), as well as information on the stars, Kevin Sorbo and Lucy Lawless. The co-stars, Michael Hurst(HTLJ) and Renee O'Connor(XWP)are also given a good showing. There are two "Official Guides" written by Robert Weisbrot, published by Doubleday. One is on Hercules, the other on Xena. There are also two "unauthorized biographies"of Kevin Sorbo/Hercules and Lucy Lawless/Xena, in the X-Posed series put out by Prima Publishing. All of these books contain information on the actors, their characters, the episodes, and production tidbits.
While all of these books are must buys for die-hard fans and collectors,the Van Hise book puts it all in perspective for the more casual reader. It gives you the background you need to start watching the show. You'll learn the characters and their histories and be able to talk intelligently to your children about the shows and about the original Greek myths upon which Hercules is loosely(very) based. Xena, however, sprang fully fledged from HTLJ, so don't worry about having missed her in World History class. And speaking of history, that's pretty loosely done also, so you may have to do some dammage control for your kid's education. This book can help straighten that out for you.
James Van Hise's book has two major advantages over the others in this group. First, it begins with a synopsis of the preceding Hercules movies from 1959-1983, with some nice black and white photo illustrations of previous "Herculeses", Steve Reeves, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Lou Ferigno. No shortage of exposed muscle there. Secondly, it has several nice color plates of the stars, not as their characters, but as themselves. There is a yummy shot of Kevin Sorbo sans shirt, a common Herculean trait. There are pictures of both stars and their parents and a shot of Lucy Lawless as Mrs. New Zealand before she became a raven-haired leather clad warrior. These personal pictures add a human dimension to the description of these shows that is unique to this book.
The book also contains an episode guide,sadly soon to be out of date as the new seasons emerge, fan club addresses for the stars and co-stars, and unique to this book a list of Internet Web sites for Herc and Xena. Although there are probably a gazillion of them by now, this list is a good place to start.
So, "Battle On" readers and buy this book. You'll be glad you did.
Much prefer the separate guides! 12 décembre 2007

Format: Broché
This book is ok,but I much prefer the separate guides for each series,which I have. I do like the photos,but not much else. The fact that this guide is unofficial makes it less appealing as well. The separate series guides are all official and more thoroughly researched. I would only recommend this if you are a diehard Herc & Xena fan. h

A very inaccurate Xena reference... 25 mars 2002
Par Cris M. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Not a good Xena reference book! This book in very innaccurate. The Xena episode guide is frequently wrong. I don't follow Hercules as much so I can't really comment on the Hercules episode guide. I would not waste my money on this book.

I loved the Herc half! 17 juin 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
More than just your average "article summary", some good pics and actual information! The Xena half was lost on me, since I think Xena is the most depressing show in television. But the well-done Hercules series is a delight!
