Discord's Death (so fast it acted like she was such a minor character, which she was on Xena but she was one of the main gods on Herc)

I agree with the freeze

Gabrielle doing the hair chopoff to "grow up" her character.

The peace thing was ok for me. Just a little odd Gabby using powder in the eyes of her enemies.
Xena following Elly as well....(since when has Xena ever followed anyone?)

Cyrene being burned because they thought she was a witch.

I agree with the Gab-chak thing. Not to fund of Gabby, but that was just wrong. Razz

Oh, and the The Valkyre Trilogy... ARGH!!! The wrongness of the Norse Gods! Oden is not supposed to have two eyes!!! *growl* OK, I know the Greek Gods is oh so wrong to. But this just made me shiver...

the Joxer/Xena wrestling match in Kindred Spirits - in my opinion the series' worst moment

the whole but the first 30 secs of Married With Fishsticks

Eve in HOA (as mentioned by XenaFairy3)

that "spring / bouncing" noise during the big fight in OAAA

Xena's attractions to "bad boys" and Ulysses

The Season Four vision thing. Christ that was tiresome.

Gabby goes peacenik. Then suddenly slaughters 10 Romans in IOM and doesn't even think about it.

Angels & Demons

The 25 year sleep

That 25 year old Livia acted more like a spoiled 12 year old

Amazons of the North

Amazons: the next generation

Varia, Varia, Varia

Boris-er Borias...that abusive jerk who was such a "good man" Roll Eyes

Friend in Need...it was in need of a compelling story and one thread of sense

Rome-and Greek Nationalism. I know I had to swallow alot of anachronisms in the series, but that was ridiculous. I never thought Rome should have been in the storylines. I liked archaic Greece with it's multitude of warlords and citystates and small kingdoms.

The insistence on inserting Xena into too many major historical events and myths. I didn't need Ulysses retold as a doomed romance. I didn't need Xena meeting Gaius Julius Caesar.

Eli becomes Jesus Lite. I kind of liked the street magician who had discovered a special gift that scared him. He was much more interesting than the smug pontificator that suddenly appeared.

Gabrielle suddenly forgets everything she ever learned from Xena in the teaser of "Forgiven". C'mon, Gabby should beat the shit out of that brat and let her chew on her own ear.

Twilight of the Gods and the all out war they declared on Xena.

Hope and Solan's hair.

Eve/Livia

The entire time of going 25 years into the future and the destruction of the Greek Gods really pissed me off. They strayed too far from the original premise.

Ok I needto start by sayin NOTHING was so wrong it made me vomit.

Tho I usually reserved that for post 3AM stuff at cheap nasty bars.


I would have preferred something better than :

Alti... a little goes a long way
Hope ... lame & to far a stretch for ROC usually too.

Eve but especially Livia The actress was sub-par too. No resemblance to Lucy what-so-ever.Has she done anything else?
Eli
the 25 year 'sleep'.
the far-east.. both China & Japan.
Low Ma.

whenever Gabby got reduced to 'Iolaus'.

the 'Finale' It was a small whimpery ending to a stellar show..
Instead of XenaXP going 'full-circle' it went 'Full Circle-Jerk'.

hee hee
I made a funny.

I have to agree with you, Salem. I did like MWF. Now, there where a few things that made me groan and roll my eyes but on the whole I liked it.

about half of Lyre Lyre
Purity and Back in the Bottle episodes

i got tired of the fights. usually when i watch reruns of eps i fast forward through the fights. most tv fights are lame, i think.
