  Alright bear with us because Alti is back, Gabby doesn't know spirit magic at all, Amarice isn't an Amazon, and Xena's isn't comfortable fighting in her own skin.  It's Xena Episode 95: Them Bones, Them Bones.   WTF CGI Skeleton fight. Other than that Brian spends way too much time talking about cake.

Autolycus comes in for his swan song as Hercules has to cut the ribbon at a bank opening in Hercules Ep 108: Hercules, Tramps and Thieves.  We meet Autolycus Ex-Wife, and a whole load of single entendres.  Also so much banking. Also we learn that everyone on the panel decided to be bad at walking. Our Own Hercules of Radio: Producer Brian His Faithful Sidekick: Producer Mark The Xena of Podcasts: Meg Her Devoted Partner: Lucas The panel manages to watch Wandavision after freeing another wrench.

Hey everybody Xena's got a secret in Xena Episode 94: Animal Attraction!  So Xena's pregnant, and Gabby gets a horse, and Joxer gets written out of half the episode and Amarice finds a fling, also it is a western and it all sort of inexplicably works. Mark's finds madness and wonder amongst balloons.  Our Own Hercules of Radio: Brian His Faithful Sidekick: Producer Mark The Xena of Podcasts: Meg Her Devoted Partner: Lucas Find us on Facebook or Twitter @MountOlympusPod Email the show: MountOlympusPod@gmail.com Check out our website: www.retrogradeorbitradio.com
Herc vants to vight vampires ah ah ah ahhhhhh in Hercules Episode 107: Darkness Visible.  Herc and Iolaus go hang out with their friend Vlad, who impales for fun sometimes and speaks only in double entendres.  It turns into a strigoi situation. Also we learn that everyone on the panel decided to be bad at walking. Our Own Hercules of Radio: Producer Brian His Faithful Sidekick: Producer Mark The Xena of Podcasts: Meg Her Devoted Partner: Lucas
Ares has a one night stand who really thinks highly of herself and Xena has to manage to not fight her to the death.  Also Ares tries to give Gabrielle a job offer in Xena Episode 93: Succession We also discuss fear of cake.

Herc visits his previously unmentioned friend Oedipus, with which he apparently missed a few key details of his life in the past couple years.  Then the episode becomes about Antigone.  Our enthusiasm is easily restrained. Before that the Panel arrives to Sea Shanties late, and Mark has cat related Ms. Pac-Man misfortunes.   Our Own Hercules of Radio: Producer Brian His Faithful Sidekick: Producer Mark The Xena of Podcasts: Meg Her Devoted Partner: Lucas
Gabrielle forgets that staves are awesome, Eli forgets that he should be madder about people deciding pacifism isn't for them, Joxer forgets that we've already moved way past his crush on Gabrielle, Amarice forgets why she's here, and Xena forgets everything.   This is all so Ares can remember what it is like to be cool awesome Ares.  Also there is briefly a God killing weapon of killing Gods.  No biggie. Mark has trepidation about being drawn to buying a Ms. Pac-Man machine and Brian doesn't even have time to edit the episode before Mark has already purchased that machine.

  The final season of Hercules will be dark and mature.  But certainly not this week with Hercules Ep 105 - Love, Amazon Style.   Aphrodite and Hephaestus are on the skids, and Deimos is looking for the Cronus stone, while Iolaus is sometimes bad Iolaus, and Herc is just over it.  Also shout out to currently in tax jail Salmoneus. Meanwhile the panel addresses Capital 'E' events in the Capitol.   Also musicals and Ernest saving Christmas.   Our Own Hercules of Radio: Producer Brian His Faithful Sidekick: Producer Mark The Xena of Podcasts: Meg Her Devoted Partner: Lucas  
Friend of The Show Adam returns once more as the panel....well engages with Hercules in the Underworld A real mixed bag as Hercules has to figure out why the underworld is wrecked (it's a loose dog) and also has to murder his centaur frenemy for trying to assault his wife, so that that centaur bleeds all over a cloak so that that cloak can try to choke Hercules.  Also Hercules fights Giant González.  Also a loooooooooot of boring nothing happens that can make this one a slog.  Mount Olympus is an episode by episode review of the smash 90s television programs "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" and its spinoff "Xena: Warrior Princess," which still enjoy unparalleled cultural relevance today! Or ... at least they do in the hearts of our hosts. Kevin Sorbo, Lucy Lawless, Michael Hurst, Renee O'Connor and friends (along with fan favorite Bruce Campbell!) stomp, fight, and flirt their way through the New Zealand countryside - and we break it down week by week.

Look this movie starts out on New Year's Eve so this is why this is happening.  We take a look at High School musical, one that Meg and Lucas like and Mark and Brian are....less than enthusiastic about.    And that bubbling cauldron of not enthusiasm is going to go on for about two and a half hours. Reviewing High School musical - a sign that 2020 is still winning against all of us right up to the end.     Mount Olympus is usually an episode by episode review of the smash 90s television programs "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" and its spinoff "Xena: Warrior Princess," which still enjoy unparalleled cultural relevance today!

It's Christmas time once more, and we take on the hit of the late 1980s that someone time shifted to get made in the 2010s 'The Christmas Dragon' watch this heartwarming, parent overwarming delve into how plucky orphan kids have to save Christmas from a mild family spat and not so mild bounty hunting slavers.  Also dragons occasionally appear, but not as often as one would think they need to.   Mount Olympus is usually an episode by episode review of the smash 90s television programs "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" and its spinoff "Xena: Warrior Princess," which still enjoy unparalleled cultural relevance today!

Apparently now we're just dealing with the forces of Hell on the regular with Xena: Episode 91: Fallen Angel.  We break out our religious studies degrees to look at this key powerful episode of the series, where all heroes go to Hell, and Heaven, and Earth, and not necessarily in that order.  Archangel Michael shows up again to be all Archangely. The panel talks about Redwall and Brian and Mark counter-sass one another about the Back to the Future cartoon.

Remember when we thought we had peaked weird last week?  That was before we kicked off season 6 with Hercules: Episode 104 - Be Deviled Did you know Hercules was Pro Death Penalty that one time?  Also somehow captured a murderer that Iolaus never knew about?  Also Iolaus skips out on paying for things! Also Also Also people are getting kicked out of Tartarus and sent to Super-hell! The panel plays Geese Games. Our Own Hercules of Radio: Producer Brian His Faithful Sidekick: Producer Mark The Xena of Podcasts: Meg Her Devoted Partner: Lucas
Look...they can't all be winners, which we learn with Xena Episode 90: Déjà Vu All Over Again.  It's a clip show, and an inexplicable future show, where we only have to pack in about 10 minutes of new material and someone opened up their bag of "Jokes that aren't going to age well at all by 2020" and poured the whole thing in!  But we move forward and mine some really top notch head canon. The panel talks about tea snootery and Mark's desk and how its not big enough to work from home and do everything else.

Look, the world had a good run and its time to end it in Hercules Episode 103 - Revelations.  What about all the other seals? is Gabriel an Archangel?  Why isn't Michael's house nicer? What happened to Zoroastrianism?  All these questions and more will not be effectively answered as Hercules has to fight the horsemen of the Apocalypse! Meanwhile we think back on ESPN 8: The Ocho and how back in our day you had to learn how to code in Q-Basic and you liked it!

Everyone it's Xena Episode 89: The Ides of March - otherwise known as the one where everyone dies.  Callisto is already dead, Caesar Dies, Gabby Dies, Xena Dies, a whole heap-o-death fer everybody!  Also Amarice and Eli are inexplicably here. The panel talks about soup and Alex Trebek.   Our Own Hercules of Radio: Brian His Faithful Sidekick: Producer Mark The Xena of Podcasts: Meg Her Devoted Partner: Lucas Find us on Facebook or Twitter @MountOlympusPod Email the show: MountOlympusPod@gmail.com Check out our website: www.retrogradeorbitradio.com  
  Alright, so do you remember Nautica, but actively don't remember all the important parts of the plot she was in last time?  Good cause the writers don't really remember either, so forget that whole plot or whatever it's time for an episode that's kind of a hot mess.....and yet there's something sort of charmusing about it. (Charming and amusing).  Also Hercules runs into his alternate timeline ex wife. Also Also Herc and Aphrodite go petition totally not Zordon for a trident. Meanwhile the panel discusses a thing its probably about books or soup or something.

Someone woke up and remembered Gabby is alt queen of the Amazons, oh we have to get rid of Pompey, oh wait we gotta get Brutus in here to remind us that he's gonna go all stabby stab on Caesar, throw it all in a blender and go folks in Xena Episode 88: Endgame. The panel plays a lot of Hades and talks about their time with friends in lowww places and related travels to the o-oh-oh-asis.  Also varying degrees of pride and freedom with regards to America. This one is all over the place.

Hercules starts to disappear and we're pretty sure that continuity is going to forget about Hercules Episode 101: Fade Out.  There are curses and cyclops eyes and Ares and Discord and Deimos who is effectively discount strife, and also strife's identical cousin.  Also some interesting fading effects that are replaced about 10 minutes in with Hercules just doing voice over and sometimes a log gets moved by wires. The panel does a quarantimes check-in, pants are optional.

Hercules sees Morrigan for the last time and King Arthur comes back in time to learn not to be a jerk in Hercules Ep 100: Once Upon a Future King.  We've done 100 episodes of Hercules and we more or less forget to acknowledge that. Also the panel tries to explain food pushers Mount Olympus is a product of Retrograde Orbit Radio, and is brought to you by the following Retrograde Orbit Radio players: Our Own Hercules of Radio: Producer Brian His Faithful Sidekick: Producer Mark The Xena of Podcasts: Meg Her Devoted Partner: Lucas
Look out everyone, Joxer kills a guy and Najara is back in Xena Episode 86: The Convert Daoud does a guest spot on the show for the first time with the whole panel, and has quite a bone to pick with Najara and her portrayal.  Also there's a section where we talk about swords and are shown swords, which the panel can see, but you'll have to imagine it.

  We're out of India and Xena is going to wander off for a Xena Lite episode in Xena Episode 85: The Play's the Thing!  This episode is just the kind of silly nonsense we all need right now.  It's also absolutely just the plot of the producers. The panel also reflects on the annual con, this year made digital, but still kicking!

Hercules and Jason and the cast of Young Hercules get together for one last score........is more or less what is going on here in Hercules Episode 98 - The Academy.

The panel reflects on yet another thing that made 2020 worse, but finds that maybe just maybe there is one thing that made 2020 better.
