There are a lot of fan complaints about this season. Yes, it had its share of duds like ANIMAL ATTRACTION, PURITY/BACK IN THE BOTTLE, and LIFEBLOOD/KINDRED SPIRITS, and Xena's discovery of her pregnancy was handled rather badly (there really should have been more suspicion that the mystery baby could be evil). However, I thought the Twilight of the Gods arc was excellent, even if aspects of it could have been done better. I loved the Livia/Eve story and the interaction between Xena and Ares. The late, lamented Kevin Smith did a great job playing Ares with greater layers of complexity, as the God of War confronts both the specter of mortality and his feelings for Xena. There was also a great new character, Athena, wonderfully played by Paris Jefferson. CHAKRAM, SEEDS OF FAITH, AMPHIPOLIS UNDER SIEGE, and LOOKING DEATH IN THE EYE/LIVIA/EVE/MOTHERHOOD are among my favorite Xena eps.
So, I love the season. Now, the DVD set (which I have had a chance to view because I pre-ordered it directly from Davis-Anderson).
The sound/picture quality is great, no complaints there. The extras, though, don't quite measure up to Season 3. Some of the season's best episodes such as AMPHIPOLIS UNDER SIEGE and LOOKING DEATH IN THE EYE have no extras (interviews or commentary) at all. As in Season 4 only four of the episodes have audio/video commentary, compared to seven in S3.Read more ›
As with every Xena season, season five follows Xena and Gabrielle's friendship and has many touching moments, as well as some hilarious ones. We once again witness Gabrielle's character progression, as she embarks upon her new warrior path; protecting Xena and her baby daughter Eve from the dangers they find themselves in almost everyday of their action-packed lives.Read more ›
MY 5th season FAVES INCLUDE:
Xena's and Gabrielle's crucified bodies are retrieved by their friends, while the departed duo are caught in the middle of an afterlife battle between demons and angels. A truly inspiring tale, wicked special effects and packed with heartening surprises! A classic.
Xena has no recollection of being a warrior after she and Gabrielle are resurrected from the dead, seemingly, by Eli.
Xena and Gabrielle must face Mavican, Ares' new right-hand woman, with some added complications.Read more ›
