    Hi.I am glad to see this board open up.Now I don't have to talk Box Office.What are your thoughts on Xena and Hercules-the tv shows?Favorite show, actors, etc?I hope Rob Tapert and company do a Xena film.My favorite Xena:Xena Scrolls-Renee O'connor plays a female Indiana Jones and Lucy's character is Diana Prince aka Wonder Woman.Hercules-Yes, Virginia, there is a Hercules.The entire show and staff are spoofed.Bruce Campbell plays Rob Tapert in a red fright wig.LOL!

    They're on my list to buy on DVD. That damn list is growing by leaps and bounds of late.

    They're fun. I never cared much about mythology when I was in high school, but I actually managed to learn a few things from these shows.

    That show was called Been There, Done That!They did a couple of musicals!The first was part of the 6 part story arc about the Rift between Xena and Gabrielle-called The Bitter Suite!The second was called Lyre, Lyre, Hearts on Fire.Had some VERY familiar music with different lyrics such as a take-off on BYE BYE BIRDIE-the telephone number!Hercules did two shows takeoffs on the Terminator series with two different women sent by Hera to terminate Hercules!Thanks!

    I was hoping there would be a Xena thread somewhere.

    Challenge:Name your favorite Herc, Xena episodes-again!I have named mine but here are more:Herc:Not Fade Away and sequel.Deals with two women each sent out to terminate Hercules.A tribute to the terminator films.Yes, Virginia, there is a Hercules.A VERY wild film in which the show spoofs itself and the production staff.Actors play the staff.Bruce Campbell plays Rob Tapert in a red fright wig!LOL!Hudson Leick plays Liz Friedman-a line producer!Xena-Warrior ,Priestess , Tramp- where Lucy plays Xena, Meg, and Leah- a priestess.The Quill is mighter than the Sword.Aphrodite enchants Gaby's quill so that everything she writes becomes true. Example:Gaby writes Gabrielle awakes in forest with a jerk.It happens-but she looks behind her and sees Joxer.King of Assasins-Xena and company-including Autocylus meet Joxer's brother who is out to kill Cleopatra!You folks are next, please!

    Hercules: Redemption Xena: Ides of March, if only because of the last few haunting moments of Xena and Gabrielle's lives in that episode.

    I forgot about Sacrifice part 2 it was a great episode with the cliff hanger of did gabrielle really die? I loved it great acting, the last look that gabrielle gave xena and when xena kills callisto

    I've only recently succumbed to the power that is Xena. I'm really enjoying it so far, falling deep in love with Callisto of all people. I quite liked Ten Little Warlords.

    I love spotting the LOTR people.

    *Bringing this thread back from the dead*

    What does everybody think of Xena showing up on the LOGO Channel?

    I have no problem with it airing on LOGO. But I wish it weren't the only place to watch the series.

    Was it F/X or Sci-Fi that used to air Xena reruns? I remember watching several marathons of the show, but I don't remember which channel it was.

    It's was Sci - fi. I think their license to air Xena ran out or something, I know they still have the rights to air Hercules.

    And there's always DVDs, those sell about $50 dollars per season in the States.

    Edit: Anyhow, I love reliving the earlier years of the series (Though I think I will stop after Xena and Gabrielle are crucified. Season Five really jumped a shark or two)

    Yeah, I plan on getting the Xena DVDs eventually. I'll probably get Hercules first, though. The first season is only $20 at Best Buy.

    Haha I remember when I was only 5 or 6, I would wake up early and go watch Hercules, Xena and Flipper. I remember nothing about any of the three, but this thread gave me a nice trip down memory lane!

    I enjoyed both of them when I was younger, "Hurcules" especially. However, when I got older, I started seeing them as far too cheesy.

    I liked both shows, but I did get a bit annoyed with Xena towards the end, when she was beating up and killing gods. I'd have believed Hercules would be able to do that he's half god but even for him it would be a stretch, but Xena whe was supposed be a mortal I just didn't buy it.

    I used to love these shows, when they were on. Especially the Hercules & Xena crossovers. :p

    But yeah, Hercules pwned.

    I love the Xena Warrior Princess TV show. I have all seasons on DVD. Still have to get around to getting that 10th Anversity dvd.

    Hudson plays my favorite villian throughout show.
    Gabby tends to get really annoying in some episodes IMO

    Renee O'Connor looks a lot like Carrie Fisher. The only difference is that they smile differently and the hair.
