My Favorite Things: Xena
Xena: Warrior Princess
My first introduction to the show came years before I started watching the series on a weekly basis. It was not until January 1999 that I became hooked on the show.
It was a sleep deprived day. I had just worked three back-to-back shifts that totaled 50 hours. I was dead tired. I was flipping through channels one cold January evening when I cam across the Xena episode “Been There, Done That.”
For me, it was never about whether Xena and Gabrielle were a couple. I enjoy things that entertain me as a person. Xena, to me, enjoyable. The cast had good chemistry. There were great stories.
I formed many friendships as a result of the series. I’ve gone to conventions, including three in Los Angeles. I’ve had a chance to meet many of the cast, including both Lucy and Renee.
I have many fond memories of the show. And for that, I’m eternally grateful.
