Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Cree McCree
During her triumphal first season, Xena: Warrior Princess was the unheralded darling of syndicated TV, toppling heavyweights like Baywatch and sprinting past Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, ­­the lead-in series that spawned this spin-off. But the full force of Xena's power wasn't unleashed until Season 2. The show became a pop-culture juggernaut, and star Lucy Lawless saw her likeness on countless magazine covers, as well as on action figures and lunchboxes. It even inspired an homage on the mainstream network hit Roseanne. Watching Lawless hit her stride in these episodes, it's easy to understand why America went ga-ga. Whether she's vaulting into aerial flips or hurling her lethal boomerang at supersonic speeds, Xena's comic book action often rivals Jackie Chan's. (Nor is it all stunt-doubled: Lawless was thrown from a horse rehearsing a Tonight Show skit, and some Season 2 episodes were edited to mask her recovery from a fractured pelvis.) In the space-time continuum of the loopy Xenaverse, anything can and does happen. This season's story lines teleport our heroine from the Trojan War to World War II, with a stop at the Miss Known World beauty pageant in the mythical Amphipolis. Xena's relationship with Gabrielle (Renée O'Connor)­­, a magnet for straight guys and gay gals alike -- ­­also gets pretty far out. In one titillating sequence, known to fans as simply The Kiss, Xena plants a big one on Gabrielle­­ -- who opens her eyes to discover the kisser is really a man (whose body contains Xena's soul). As the warrior princess would yelp in her trademark battle cry: "Yi-yi-yi-yi-yi!"

Been years since I last saw this show. Each season has its moments. Some good some not good.

This season was okay and had some cool fight sequences as some new characters.

I enjoyed this season a little more than the first. The characters were more established and we began to see more development both in Gabrielle and Xena. A couple very good episodes, although I didn't care that much for "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun". Very good season!
