Mythic Warriors Full Episode Guide

  • Androcles was a Greek slave who spent his days caring for the very lions that his fellow slaves were thrown to please the sadistic whims of a tyrannical Emperor. Androcles' friend Lycopheus dreams of escaping to freedom, but Androcles is too frightened to try -- until one day when Androcles (with the advice of the god Hermes) decides to enter the cage of a sickly lion to try to help the poor creature. When the lion escapes, the chaos that follows allows Androcles and Lycopheus to escape. As they are pursued by soldiers into the forest, Lycopheus is bitten by a snake, and Androcles finds himself alone, facing the gaping jaws of the very lion that escaped. But instead of attacking Androcles, the beast collapses in his arms. Androcles discovers a huge thorn in its paw and removes it freeing the lion from his suffering. Soon after, Androcles is re-united with Lycopheus who is near death from the snakebite. To save his friend, Androcles must overcome his fears and learn to survive in the dangerous woods. Following the ways of the lion, he gains newfound confidence and skill and is able to nurse his friend back to health. But then the soldiers return and Lycopheus is recaptured. Now it's up to Androcles alone to free his fellow slaves. And he succeeds with help from a most unexpected ally. For in the end, when Androcles is thrown to the lions, the beast he faces turns out to be the very lion Androcles saved. Returning the favor, the lion submits to Androcles and licks his hand. Seeing this, the people become fearful that it is an omen from the gods and Androcles is able to convince the Emperor to free his fellow slaves.

  • Young Actaeon was raised by the centaur Chiron to be a skilled warrior and hunter, but Actaeon ignored his lessons and instead grew up to spend his life hunting only for the glory of the kill with his faithful hunting hounds by his side. When the White Stag prevents Actaeon from capturing a bear in his traps, he vows to hunt down the great beast and wear its white coat on his back. Actaeon and his hounds track down the stag and engage it in a furious battle, unaware that Artemis, goddess of the hunt, longs to avenge Actaeon for his ruthless killing of her forest animals. Using her magic, Artemis causes the great beast to magical meld with Actaeon. Now, the human hunter, having been transformed into the White Stag, must survive among the forest creatures while his fellow hunters and his own hounds hunt him down. To survive, Actaeon must learn to appreciate the value of the very animals he used to heedlessly kill. In the end, he risks his own life to save his stag family and this selfless deed prompts Artemis to return him back to his human form.

  • Having never forgiven Hercules for challenging the gods, a vengeful Hera hires Nessus, the centaur, to wound Daneira, Hercules one true love, with a poison arrow. When Hercules tries to draw out the poison, he becomes infected to. Knowing that Daneira will soon die, Hercules pleads to the gods for help and is answered by Hera, who tells him that only a golden apple from her Garden of Hesperides can cure Daneira. Hercules agrees to go on the treacherous journey, despite the fact that the poison in his system is slowly draining his strength. Hera is sure Hercules will fail to make his journey and she will have her long sought revenge. Despite his fading strength, Hercules journeys across the sea, is captured by Pygmy warriors, and defeats the terrible giant Antaeus who had been tormenting the little warriors for so long. To show their gratitude, the Pygmies help Hercules find the Garden of Hesperides where Hercules must face his biggest challenge of all -the giant, Atlas, who holds up the sky. When Hercules outwits the towering giant, he avenges Hercules by creating an earthquake that swallows up the golden apple tree so that Hercules escapes with only one apple. In the end, Hercules must choose to save Daneira or his own strength, either way Hera thinks she has finally bested our hero. But that's when Hercules' two Pygmy friends return with a second apple, and both Daneira and Hercules are saved from Hera's revenge.

Seeing Jason as a real threat to his throne, the cunning King reminds Jason that if he fights him there will be much bloodshed -- then offers a way to avoid it.

  • While undertaking his famous "˜Twelve Labors', imposed upon him by the vengeful goddess, Hera, Hercules saves a village from the Nemean Lion. Witnessing this, the young sheepherder, Iolas, who idolizes Hercules, decides to follow him and find out what makes such a great hero tick. But Hercules doesn't consider himself a hero at all. He has done something long ago that is still haunting him now, and he fights Hera's beasts to try to make up for what he has done. While Hera rejoices at Hercules sufferings, Iolas longs to help his hero free himself from this dark secret. Then, just before Hercules is to fight the nine-headed Hydra, he finally reveals his past to Iolas. When he was young and prideful, he challenged the gods of Olympus by claiming he could shoot an arrow all the way to the sun. With help from an angry Hera, the flaming arrow returned to earth and burned a village. Hercules feels he can never be forgiven for this deed. But before the Hydra can defeat Hercules, Iolas gets him to see that he must stop punishing himself for the past -- and to see that his worth as a hero is in helping those who need him now. Seeing the truth in this, a renewed Hercules defeats the Hydra. But his labors aren't over yet.
