One word/ Catch phrase: Entertaining
Fave scene: There's 2-The one where Xena & Gab are tied to the cross and Gab is on the altar and they are singing "love will be our guide" and the scene where Xena sings Forgive Me
Fav Quote: In the beginning when Xena tells Callisto to cut the song & dance
Dislikes: The drag scene was hard to watch-not that I didn't like it -it was just hard to see
Picture it: The look on Xena's face when they were standing on the clff before Gab threw them over
Subtext: I see it in the way Xena is singing Forgive me to Gab
Commentary: I never get tired of this ep. I even have some of the songs on my computer to listen to while I'm working. I LOVE IT!! WXF
firstly, let me apologise for the many varied mistakes in this. it's been a while...
One word/ Catch phrase: enchanting
Fave scene: that peace/war song. joxer singing, callisto..."hearts are hurting"
Fav quote: callisto: "you're wrong not to trust one who knows you so well. i never betrayed you, that was...gabrielle." and also lila: "take this scythe, it's just a case of killing to be kind."
Dislikes: hmm, the computer graphics. a bit dodge, but what are you gonna do? and "hate is the star" - it's fun and all but it just feels a bit too moral or something...i don't know...plus ming tien...little freak...
Picture it!: well, i was pretty damn impressed with all the sets and costumes. both quality and quantity.
Subtext: "hearts are hurting" part 2. "i never dreamed that any barriers could rise..." "or that i'd ever see the stanger in your eyes..."
Any extra commentary: one of my favourites. i'm a sucker for a musical. and "hearts are hurting" is excellent for a karaoke duet, just fyi
One word/ Catch phrase:
Sinnggg....sing a song!
The one where Xena comes to get Gabby from the Amazon camp. It's so intense that the first time I saw it I barely caught a breath.
"I HURT INSIDE! Don't you?" ~Gabrielle
"I KILLED YOU! YOU BASTURD!" ~Xena
I wish they had gotten a better match for Renee's voice.
The whole rolling around in the waves and sand at the end. That was a little to forced for me.
There are so many awesome visuals in this episode that it's hard to pick one.
I do like the one right after the Gab Drag. Xena gets off the horse picks Gabrielle up to throw her off the cliff. Gabby kicks her in the head. The look on Xena's face when she gets up still gives me chills down my spine.
Subtext: The makeup scene was sweet but not a lot of interaction through the whole episode. (obviously)
Any extra commentary:
Simply....a classic. I could listen to the soundtrack over and over and over again.
My sister and I would turn that on and sing it together at the top of our lungs.
The soundtrack to this epsisode was the first CD I EVER bought for myself. Which is kind of funny, because I, typically, hate musicals. I even hated this one at first. (it came out before I got into Xena and I thought looked so corny) Boy, have I changed my mind. I listen to that CD ALL the time. I LOVE IT!!!
I lvoe all the music. The one thing I wasn't so pleased with was that the writers skirted around the chatacters actually telling eachother they loved one another, It was like they were purposly trying to avoid it. It would have been one thing if it would have felt forced, but it wouldn't have. But, then One Against an Army came along and fixed that. So all was well in the end.
One more thing. I think we should seriously think about doing a Xena Karaoke at the convetntion.
