Episode #129 - Hercules (2014)

May 19th, 2016

The Rock Dwayne Johnson stars as the son of Zeus (?) in this week's episode, 2014's Hercules! This iteration of the classic mythology finds Hercules working as a mercenary, using his legend to drum up business and strike fear into the hearts of his enemies. When a beautiful woman offers him a job defending her father's kingdom against the villainous Reece's Pieces, Hercules and his gang face the monumental challenge of training hundreds of helpless villagers to become fearless warriors. After leading them to victory, he quickly realizes something is wrong. His boss may not be who he seems to be, and Hercules may have been duped into helping the wrong side. Now he must fight to protect the young heir to the throne against the very men that he turned into great warriors. Hercules was a pet project of Dwayne Johnson, and if we've learned anything over the years, it's that pet projects are rarely easy to watch. Grab your lion head hoodie, prepare your death-mower chariot, and join us as we let loose the three headed hounds of hell on Hercules! With special guest Kristy Smorol!
