Hercules (Kevin Sorbo) was played by a very handsome man…

Lise in Montreal sent this great story about a year ago (my humblest apologies for posting it so late, my friend) of how she became a Kevin fan. Please enjoy!


This is how it happened:

I would watch every Friday night on CBS a vampire series I liked very much, “Forever Knight.” It would play at 11:30 pm, and that was in the 1990s.

Then one week, they removed the show and put “Hercules” at first, and I must admit, I wasn’t very pleased, but, I watched it. I got hooked immediately. I always loved Ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt and mythology in general.

It didn’t hurt that Hercules was played by a very handsome man whom I found out was the same age as me and single at the time. Not that I ever expected to meet him or anything.

So, I got hooked to the show and would watch every episode. I also got interested in “Xena,” which was an offspring from “Hercules.” (I mean here that one of the characters who was on “Hercules” got her own show.)

I even watch reruns of “Hercules” to this day, and even bought a book about Hercules. Even felt a bit sad when Kevin got married, but, I guess all fans do feel that way a bit, but, I got over it.

I did check out “Andromeda,” and watched it for a while, but on account of being extremely busy, I did miss some shows.

I had seen Kevin in Meet the Spartans, and I must admit that he was my favorite in the movie.

I have the VHS tape of Kull and still watch it.

So, now you know the full story.

    Jan, nice story from this fan, but could you pass along this to all fans of What If being honored by Dove Awards – There is only ONE vote oer IP and ONE valid email address, any more than that will disqualify all entries. Thank You!

    Hey, Sandi, thanks! My apologies for my tardiness posting a story about the Dove Award. Still wondering about the single vote per IP address, though. I know that only one email addy can be used, so… Hmmmm… will look into that. What say you?
