Just Watch It For the Actor Cameos...
19 December 2002 | by MovieAddict2016See all my reviews

The television show "Hercules," based on the Disney film "Hercules," is perhaps worth watching just for the impressive cameos by actors.

Why a show like "Hercules" would ever attract so many talented actors and actresses is beyond me. Perhaps the sound studio was nearby when the actors were filming a movie, and they decided to stop in and spice up the show a bit. Either way, the kids who watch the show most likely didn't realize any of the actors. It's an adult joke, really.

As for the show itself...well...what have we come to expect from television spin-offs? Nothing much. Though, be careful. When you start tuning in to hear the actors, you can become attached to the show easily.

2.5/5 stars --
