Rob Tapert on HERCULES Season Two

Welcome to another Wildcard Wednesday! In today’s post, I’m sharing an interview with Rob Tapert that was released as a Best Buy Exclusive on the second season of Hercules: The Legendary JourneysReferenced before on past Hercules posts, this interview sees Tapert going into detail about some of the behind-the-scenes conflicts that began manifesting during the second year of the TV series, including the beginning of his breakdown in communication with Kevin Sorbo. It’s a really fascinating discussion, featuring a brief clip of Sorbo on Regis & Kathie Lee in 1997. While Tapert and Sorbo touch upon their differences in Robert Weisbrot’s second book on the series, it’s clear here that their issues went back to pretty early in the series (basically since Xena launched). If you haven’t seen this interview, it’s a must watch. Check it out here.
