This episode is largely a fascinating trip to the past, and folklore and legends and how they relate to the present time. After The Paracast expands the discovery and also includes some discussion of cryptids.
I usually don't comment here, but I want to take exception to Hercules' remarks in After the Paracast to the effect that the names of the days of the week derive from Greek mythology. This only applies to the Romance Languages like Italian, Spanish and French. But even there, those names come more directly from the names of Roman gods. In the case of English (and Germanic languages), the origin of the names of the days of the week derive from Nordic mythology. There's a lot about this on the internet. To borrow from mythology: "Don't kill the messenger who bears the bad news". Hercules is somewhat overzealous in honoring and promoting his Hellenic heritage. It is a bit reminiscent of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding". No offense intended. I also have a Latin soul and proud of it.
