Feminists Hate Hercules

0

Feminists have always hated Hercules: The Legendary Journeys because it’s centered around two strong male protagonists and promotes the idea that a woman can be ANYTHING — including the things feminists don’t want her to be.

There were women warriors, blacksmiths, scholars, huntresses and pirates — right alongside housewives, mothers, priestesses, midwives and bar wenches.

A woman could be a hero or a villain, friend or foe, an aggressor or (*shock*) innocent victim.

Hercules and Iolaus were out to make the world a better place for everyone.  They believed in justice tempered with mercy — not awarding special favors according to race and gender or denying opportunities to those who’ve earned them.

Imagine your little girl growing up to believe that she is who she chooses to be, not what anyone makes her.

You want to talk about internalized misogyny?  Feminism at its core.

REAL Herc fans taped these three eps BEFORE the VHS trilogy was released. 📼

REAL fans also recognize the value of having EVERY episode of EVERY show Rob Tapert has EVER produced on DVD. 💿

Which is how REAL fans come to possess three copies of each of these three episodes.

And bitch, don’t even talk to me about the Cloud, because you don’t own SHIT.

Hercules: The Legendary Journeys really is the best medicine.

Recent sub-clinical studies of the show’s holistic healing properties indicate the presence of strong, anti-pathogenic xen waves that work by realigning the body’s chakrams and can even REVERSE the effects of this alleged “norovirus” in a matter of days! It has now been over 24 hours since •••• last tried to take a bite out of me. There is hope for mankind yet!!

I am thankful for Bruce Campbell, Stuart Devenie, Stephen Papps, and Verne Troyer for their heartfelt performances in that holiday masterpiece of American patriotism, “One, Two, Three: Give Me Lady Liberty.”

If you have not seen this episode of Jack of All Trades — a highly-educational historical docuseries brought to you by The Three Sages (Tapert, Raimi, and Campbell) — it means you are a bad American and probably get most of your “History” from reading textbooks.

Watching the Hercules TLJ season one episode ‘Gladiator’ is vastly more amusing in a post-Spartacus era than when it originally aired two decades ago, what with Tony Todd as a Crixus-Oenameus hybrid and Alison Bruce as proto-Lucretia. And I keep cracking up at the sight of Jeffery Thomas (Titus Lentulus Batiatus) in the role of the thuggish prison guard.

The master himself (Rob Tapert) even makes a cameo among the spectators, which I don’t recall him ever doing for Spartacus — though Michael Hurst did put in a quick appearance at the end of season 2 as javelin fodder.

While the French Revolution undoubtedly remains one of the most fascinating and terrifying periods in human history, I must confess to being a little shaky on events following the rise of the Directory.

For no sooner does Napoleon (the little monkey!) enter the stage than I find myself entirely unable to focus on whatever I am reading, so overwhelmed I am by the desire to watch Jack of All Trades.  For what soulless creature does not enjoy hilariously-exaggerated accents, anatomically-correct cow puppets, and making fun of the French?

Nevertheless, Rob Tapert and Verne Troyer have much to answer for.
