4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but leaves a few things to be desired... August 2, 2004
Season 5 is probably my second favorite Xena season, after Season 3. Xena and Gabrielle literally go to hell and back, and that's just in the season opener. Xena has a mystery child and is hunted by the gods -- and then, after a miraculous 25-year sleep, has to face both her own grown daughter and the gods as adversaries. In the meantime, Gabrielle grows into a warrior and Ares grows a heart.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dramatic, Ground-Breaking, a must have set. October 3, 2004
Season five was set to be ground-breaking from the very first episode, "Fallen Angel" which continued on from the climatic fourth season episode "The Ides of March" which left our heroines dead, crucified by the Romans. "Fallen Angel" puts Xena and Gabrielle through heaven and hell, literally!! Angels, Demons, heavenly realms, beautiful costumes and effects, not to mention the powerful script make the episode soar. It's hard to believe that the Xena producers could possibly follow a season opener like that but they continue to amaze the audience with a season that does just that. Season five sees Xena pregnant, carrying a baby that is said to bring about the end of the Olympian gods - another trip to China - the death of two beloved characters: Joxer and Eli - a new chakram - a 25year time skip and then there's the legendary fifth season musical "Lyre, Lyre, Hearts on Fire". This musical extravaganza has the cast singing and dancing up a storm, especially Ted Raimi as Joxer's larger-than-life twin brother Jace. Including versions of `Dancing in The Moonlight' `Sisters Are Doing It For themselves' `War' and Joseph Lo Duca's incredible musical talent; "Lyre, Lyre, Hearts on Fire" makes for some incredibly entertaining viewing. The episode is topped off with an outtake of a very pregnant Lucy Lawless dancing in Gabrielle's go-go outfit, during the credits.

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.

By Laurel
Format:VHS Tape
Of the 6 glorious seasons, this was my least favorite. This, however, doesn't mean it was horrible- because it wasn't!! The show can absolutely do no wrong yet when compared to the four seasons before and the final and finest season that proceeded, Season 5 came up just a little short. As stunning as the heartmelting chemistry between Lucy Lawless & Renee O'Connor has always been, there was just something undeniably missing from their (usually mushy, protective and loving) acting and from the scripts themselves; I don't know if the crew was simply run ragged, fighting, or if Lucy's pregnancy was a difficult subject to write/act around...but the episodes sometimes lacked the poignance and magic that us fans had been so incredibly spoiled with. But still, there were some truly excellent EXCELLENT moments and landmarks such as: X & G struggles in the afterlife, the birth of Xena & Gabrielle's baby & the battle to save it from the clutches of the desperate Olympian gods, the growth of the baby and the story of her tangled destiny, a scary trip to the new underworld, Eli's hopeful sacrifice, wretched Callisto's dramatic transformation and gift, Gab as a mermaid, and a notable possession by the Furies horridly endangers everyone.
MY 5th season FAVES INCLUDE:
Fallen Angel
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Xena
Xena is one of the most enjoyable, inspiring, action-packed, fun-filled, romantic shows ever to grace the small screen. I admit, when I began watching Xena, I was very skeptical. Read more
