There's not much detail here with regards to this set, so I thought I'd supply what I've been able to find out (basically, what Creation has published).

What we have here is basically a "fan's collection" of favorate Xena and Gabby "relationship" episodes. Thier mythology if you will.

This seven disc collection includes episodes from each season of the series (and I have to agree that there are quite a few favorites included here) :

Callisto (from Season 1) - A GREAT Episode.
Is There A Doctor In The House (from Season 1)
A Day In The Life (from Season 2) - One of the most popular.
Been There Done That(from Season 3)
The Bitter Suite (from Season 3) - The musical episode.
One Against An Army (from Season 3)
The Ides Of March (from Season 4)
Fallen Angel (from Season 5)
Lyre, Lyre, Hearts On Fire (from Season 5)
Amphipolis Under Siege (from Season 5)
Motherhood (from Season 5)
Old Ares Had A Farm (from Season 6)- Featuring a great supporting performance by the late Kevin Smith.
When Fates Collide (from Season 6)
Many Happy Returns (from Season 6)
A Friend In Need Parts 1 and 2 (the finale from Season 6)

For those of you who have not seen Xena: Warrior Princess, there's not much I can add to the existing positive reviews. It's great action, at times heartfelt or hilarious or risque. Christians might be offended by the not so subtle references to biblical stories (i.e. "immaculate" conception of Xena's baby.) But the show doesn't take itself seriously either (look for 2 or 3 times when Xena is whistling her own theme song.)

To the fans looking for the complete collection, grab it while you can! That is despite the season 1 collection. It's got poor special features and weak video quality that's very obvious on the HDTV. I've seen better quality VHS recordings.

Season 2 has the same weak video quality but a few features like occasional commentary and interviews. During the commentary, Bob Tapert's the serious one and Lucy Lawless is laughing at herself like Mystery Science Theater 3000. Certainly interesting to hear her without the American accent. They introduced the concept of Video Commentary, where they show the actors or crew reacting to the episode as they're watching it. You can't watch that instead of an episode (the video commentary is not on the complete episode) but there is some value added to see their reactions.

Season 3 is when the video quality got much better and the features excellent. I'm almost through season 5 of 6 and the features pretty much stay consistent from there.

Overall this is well worth it.

I was a junior in highschool when Xena's final episode aired on television. The show, for a while, ran in syndication, and after a few years hiatus is now back on tv. It was its return to tv that prompted me to buy this set. I had forgotten how much I loved to watch Xena and Gabrielle's adventures. These episodes are great, and I've noticed that some of what we see here is not what aired on tv, guess the FCC had something to say about it. It also saves you money if you want the director's cut of Friend in Need, as its included in this boxed set. Granted there are other episodes I would have chosen, but until I get the seasons this will work for me just fine. Great buy, and any Xena fan would want it for their collection.

Just wanted to mention, one thing I also love are the black and white pictures on the inside glossy dvd covers. The show's greatest moments are actually compiled on six discs, with the seventh being nothing but extras. The commentary is also wonderful, as its nice to see Lucy [Lawless] and Renee [O'Connor] laughing and enjoying the show just as much,if not more than, as the fans.

I have bought all six seasons separately from Best Buy. They are the only store to sell the "Exclusive Bonus Content" boxes for each season. The bonus is simply an extra 30-minute interview per season. Many of the episodes have their own commentaries by members of the cast and crew. The later seasons have more than the earlier ones. However, I don't know if they made additional interviews just for Best Buy or used some leftover stuff. I've seen too many to notice or care, but I always appreciate seeing each one and have not failed to watch any (maybe I'll skip the Ulysses bonus content though :). I've heard the ending is slightly different on the director's cut final episode available separately. If you have to have it all, go to Best Buy and get your discs there. They are priced at about $55 a pop, so you'll end up spending about the same.

It would sure be nice to get them all in a single box, book-style packaging like they did with a very-limited edition Buffy in the UK, but I would be kicking myself for not being able to wait if they did. It's taken over two years to eventually release them all.

The quality of packaging for each season is outstanding, to put it mildly. The seasons are fold-out over-and-over style, which is no problem if your DVD is next to the floor, as mine is, but you sure can't hold it while folding it all out. In the second half of the series, they went to putting two DVD's per fold-out page, instead of one disc per page like the earlier seasons. The small inconvenience is pulling out the front disc to get to the back one. You'll notice the later season's are slightly slimmer for this reason, but when you are up to nine or ten discs including the bonus CDs, they must have felt a need to do something.
