As reported on 22 January 2011 - Xena Returning to Australian TV in February 2011, Xena fans can also catch our dynamic duo on Foxtel's SciFi Channel starting with Season 1!
Tomorrow we have Chariots of War on SciFi and The Titans on 7Mate!
New Zealand-filmed Xena: Warrior Princess is the highly successful spin-off of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. In the original show, Xena (Lucy Lawless) is a fierce and formidable villainess, the leader of a vast army bent on destruction and devastation, but she casts off her evil ways and devotes the rest of her life to making amends to her victims and protecting the innocent - a task complicated by the many enemies who neither forgave nor forgot.
Xena’s constant companion is the young and beautiful Gabrielle (Renee O'Connor), an aspiring "bard", eager to experience adventure first-hand, but who ultimately becomes Xena's devoted friend and confidant.
And what adventures they have! Xena and Gabrielle journey through Greece, Italy, Scandanavia, Africa, India, and China, with side trips to the Underworld, even to the future, in which the two heroines find themselves in reincarnated form.
Plenty of tongue in cheek humour and messing about with history sees spoofs on beauty contests, spaghetti Westerns, Danny Kaye films, theme parks, pro wrestling, Broadway musicals, and even Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
For mythological mayhem, Xena is the place to be!
