Xena Warrior Princess: Season 2 (2011)
By Universal Studios.
There have been impressive women throughout television history, but no one has fired up the imagination like Xena: Warrior Princess. Lucy Lawless returns to her iconic role in all 22 Season 2 episodes as the female fighter with the brawn, bravery and brashness to rid the world of some of the most massive mythological deviants ever seen. Joined by her faithful companion and trusted ally, Gabrielle (Renée O’Connor), Xena roams through this life and the next, searching for redemption from her ruthless past. And, in this gripping season, Xena has the chance to make peace with some of the most important people harmed by her former exploits… if she can stay alive. It’s a quest filled with unbelievable swordfighting, deadly giants, daring rescues and vengeful gods in the continuing adventures of this larger-than-life heroine.
Xena: Warrior Princess: Season One (Deluxe Collector's Edition) (1995)
By Starz / Anchor Bay.
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.
