The beloved and campy adventures of Xena: Warrior Princess are digitally preserved on DVD by Anchor Bay on this Deluxe Collector's Edition. The six-disc set contains all 24 episodes from the first low-budget season originally aired in 1995-1996, each presented with a standard full-frame transfer and Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. Special features are mostly contained on the bonus CD-ROM: a featurette on season one called "The Xena Chronicles," a screensaver, and bios for the cast and crew. Otherwise, the only features are a photo gallery and some cheesy packaging promotional materials. This original set was reissued by Anchor Bay with episode commentaries from Lucy Lawless, Renee O'Connor, and Rob Tapert. This set is highly recommended for Xenites everywhere.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Cree McCree
Lucy Lawless, everyone's favorite warrior princess, kicks some serious butt in this comprehensive DVD collection. Although spun off from Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Xena quickly vaulted past mighty Herc during her first season to become the syndicated TV phenomenon of the year. It's easy to understand why. Beyond the pure pleasure of watching Lawless do battle in skimpy leathers and form-fitting breastplate, viewers were treated to nonstop action laced with, like, totally anachronistic 1990s dialogue and pop culture references ("I hear Buffus the Bacchae Slayer is playing next door"). Fantasy buffs lapped up the show's wonderful creatures and campy special effects. Feminists praised Xena as a terrific role model for young women. And horny guys and lesbians alike were seduced by Xena's erotically charged relationship with Gabrielle (Renee O'Connor), the toothsome bard who served as her sidekick. "Altared States," in which the pair skinny-dipped together, lit up online chat rooms for weeks with speculation about Xena's lusty declaration: "By the gods! You are beautiful." All the freshness of the debut season is captured on this six-disc set from Anchor Bay Entertainment, which offers superior audio and video quality to an earlier version released through the official fan site. By the gods -- it's beautiful!

Xena Warrior Princess: Season 1 3.8 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 5 reviews.

This is a okay show and I love her weapon the Chakram. It's so deadly and sharp with nice designs around the circle sides. The show was alright but can get annoying when Xena and Gabrielle ALWAYS say to each that they love each (as friends), and that they are the best of friends. It can get annoying after a while and Joxer is hilarious and a fun character as the third wheel behind Xena and Gabrielle.

Hong Kong action meets classical mythology! It never did win any emmy's.... but it did entertain many. Nice DVD box set. Looking forward to the rest of the series on DVD so I can throw out the old worn out tapes! WATCH THESE!

Ok I've loved this show since it first showed on tv, but I think it may be a disappointment to some people. Xena and Gabrielle are far from gay. They each have a new guy in each episode and the only time Gabrielle even make a strange comment was when she was drugged. Sorry to all the guys out there. Xena is still great though. The fighting and the gods are really cool. If you like viiolence then you gotta see this.

Anchorbay has done an excellant job of putting season 1 on DVD! The set is nicely packaged and each episode has its own menu. Fans of the series will want to get it on DVD and ditch the videotapes. I am looking forward to getting the other seasons on DVD as well!
