Watching Xena Again
i last watched Xena in mid-November last year and had planned to watch the dreaded season 5 in January of this year. Grief & depression stopped that.

i am planning- or hoping- to start watching what i consider my favorite Xena eps in the spring of next year. i was not sure i could get in the mood for Xena again but i something about the loss i suffered has me feeling okay to watch it. So til then...

Epic! Glad to hear you're watching Xena again, xc, that's always a good show for dealing with life. I learned some of my best life lessons from Xena! Big Grin

I'm gonna watch the first season again this year with Nicky and then the second season. He vaguely remembers Xena but wants to see it again.

He paid me one of the highest compliments I ever received recently. Said I remind him of Lucy Lawless???? Big Grin Man, that made my year.

Sometimes things look up after tons of grief and pain. I certainly had my share after turning 50 this year. Thankfully it ended better than it began...

Anyway, back to Xena, she had it all; wisdom, fighting skills, healing...what more can one ask for in a hero? Big Grin

"I have many skills." I remember we talked about her being half goddess and wondering whether her papa was Hades or Ares. I think probably Hades. She did look a lot like him!

"Ultimately, the truth will come out in all of this and I will be standing on the right side of the roaring rapids. I hope other people will be too. I know the truth and if I had to walk away from all of it today, the job, the career, all of it, and go toodle-oo, then fine."

Some local cable station shows Xena reruns. i only see parts of it but now they are showing season 5. *bleeech!*

When i start watchin Xena again, it will just be my most favorite eps to begin with. That rules out all but one ep from season 5- the one with Boobican or whatever her name was, Mavican, i think.

There will be mostly eps from seasons 1-4 and a few from season 6. Not sure when i will start that but no, no preggers Xena, no zombie Gabby aka Xena Jr (i HATE the term 'warrior bard' such a contradiction, like military intelligence).

i've been watching dvd's of the old Fugitive tv show for the last several months and finally finished. Now it is time to start watching Xena again.

In my other Xena watching post, i stopped at the end of season 4 as someone in my life (meaning mama xc) began to experience health issues. i never did resume watching the show & i have no interest in resuming with what i consider the wasted season 5.

So starting tonight, almost two years later, i'm going to kick off watching Xena again & concentrate on either my favorite eps or those i feel i may want to see again depending on what i recall of it. This means next to no S5 eps, except for one i can think of, namely Succession. i'll have to check the synopsis for eps of S5 & 6 to decided if i want to see them again.

i'll try to post at least once a week with some viewpoints of various eps i've seen. i won't be watching as often as i did the Fugitive cause i also want to watch other shows, the Flash, Blacklist and Riverdale and whenever it returns, iZombie. So i'll start tonight with Sins of the Past.

i watched 3 Xena eps this week & won;t resume til Sunday night.

Sins of the Past- excellent debut ep. Funny how the ppl in Amhipolis seemed to forgive Xena when & after she fought Draco. However, the bigots in Potedaia wanted her out of town after she save the girls from Draco's men. Love Gabrielle when she defended Xena from the rock throwers in Cyrene's pub.

Dreamworker- Loved the lesson of 'wisdom before weapons' & the stone in the lake analogy at the end. Too bad the morals of this ep were quickly forgotten come season 5.

Cradle of Hope- Eps with babies usually suck but this was a good one thanks to good acting & the addition of the Pandora legend.

i skipped Chariots of War, just never cared for it.

i didn't watch Xena last week.
i taped Sharp Objects off HBO when it was free for a few days. i taped it cause Amy Adams was in it. It was slow, depressing and unrealistic.i should have watched Xena which i will do again starting tonight.

Last week i watched The Path Not Taken. Marcus, kidnapped princess, Gabrielle in prison. They never explained how she got out of being executed so quickly, though it was all off screen.

The Reckoning. Ares, Xena locked up.

The Titans. Liked this better this time around

i skipped Prometheus cause i hate the lovey-dovey crap between Xena & Hercules, Gabrielle & Iolaus

Death in Chains. Liked this better this time around, too.

This week i've seen-

Hooves & Harlots, this is always pretty good, Xena laughing as she fights & Gabrielle still very innocent

The Black Wolf, here we get some iconic statements like 'i have many skills' and 'it was 10 years ago' for the first time. One of the best eps of the entire series.
