Brief Synopsis:
Hercules in the Maze of the Minotaur without the clip show sections! The TV movie is reformatted as a new first episode for the first season of the series (to precede The Wrong Path), in both regular and extended versions.
Intention:
The movie as broadcast was padded out with 25 minutes of clips from the first four Hercules movies, which just get in the way of the actual story. It's bad enough watching the movie in isolation, but if you've just seen its predecessors, the clips are especially unwelcome. Without them, there's still plenty left to make a good Hercules episode.

Hercules The Legendary Journies is itself a legendary show...every hero's first steps have their minor stumbles however and this final entry in the five early direct-to-TV movie season for this man of myth was capped off by a last minute story that didn't quite fulfil the required running team for a feature and had to be padded out with clips. Gelfinghand's two versions makes this take on the story work without the constant distractions created by the reminders of past glories, allowing you the viewer to revel in the present situation and soak in the glorious nostalgia of cheap and cheesy 90s television. They sure don't make 'em like this anymore.

Well done Gelfing
