Editorial Reviews

Make way for one of the fiercest and most dynamic woman warriors to ever grace the TV screen as all 24 Season One episodes of Xena: Warrior Princess come to DVD. Lucy Lawless is Xena: a smart, tough, and fearless fighter who travels the dangerous roads of Ancient Greece defending the innocent from the forces of darkness and seeking redemption for her cruel misdeeds of the past. Along for the adventures is her devoted friend Gabrielle (Renée O’Connor), a compassionate girl who hopes to be a warrior one day, and other legendary figures, including the formidable Hercules (guest star Kevin Sorbo). Combining impressive displays of mythology, fantasy, and martial arts, it’s an iconic show that set the bar for all female action heroes.

4.0 out of 5 stars A 5-star show; too bad the DVD collection's overpriced February 26, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"In a time of ancient gods, warlords, and kings, a land in turmoil cried out for a hero. She was Xena, a mighty princess forged in the heat of battle. The power. The passion. The danger. Her courage will change the world."
If you don't recognize the above, you've been in a distant land since at least 1995, and this review isn't really for you. But you should buy this collection immediately, because you're in for an entirely novel treat.
Xena: Warrior Princess is a spin-off series from "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys", which followed 5 "Action Pack" (don't ask) Hercules movies. The Hercules and Xena stories are revisionist tales of antiquity. Most of the names are right ("Hercules" instead of "Herakles", and the Roman "Cupid" instead of Greek "Eros" are notable exceptions), but anachronisms abound. We first see Xena sitting on her horse, complete with stirrups (1000 years before their invention) and saddle horn (2000 years early). Xena's sword is bronze, but steel implements abound in an era when Indian Wootz steel was a commodity valued above gold. The wet countryside of New Zealand doubles for the dry Mediterranean clime of Greece. And barbarian warriors look suspiciously like Maori. Obviously the emphasis is on entertainment rather than historical accuracy. It's a good thing, too, because the entertainment value is outstanding.
The premise of the series is that Xena was a teenager living in the Greek village of Amphipolis when it was attacked. She rallied her neighbors to mount a successful defense. Then she took the surrounding towns to have a defensive perimeter. One thing led to another, and Xena was a warlord terrorizing the countryside. But, true to her original intent, she spared defenseless women and children.

4.0 out of 5 stars Universal re-release of Season One is not that bad April 20, 2010
Format:DVD
I looked for some reviews before picking up Universal's re-release of Xena: Warrior Princess - Season One, and unfortunately couldn't find any, so I purchased the set even though I didn't know what to expect.

-- Packaging / Discs --

Xena: Warrior Princess - Season One is packaged in one of those standard sized cases capable of holding multiple discs. The previous release by Anchor Bay (AB) was one of those brick sized digi-packs where you had to unfold the entire thing to get to all the discs. The reverse side of the cover lists all the episdoes (by disc) and includes breif summaries. There is not mention of first air date for the episodes. The discs themselves are all single sided, double layered discs. The only artwork on the discs is the red outline of the chakram (the round throwing blade used by Xena) and the "Xena: Warrior Princess" logo.

-- Video Quality --

First of all, I'm watching the episodes on a 32" Vizio 720p HDTV. It's being played on a progressive scan DVD player at 480p.

I no longer have access to the AB release of Xena: Warrior Princess - Season One, and thus can't compare the video quality of that set to this new one. Based on my memory of last watching the AB release (which was quite a few years ago) I can say that the episodes on the Universal release don't look any worse. In some cases that look better.

The picture has grain, that's going to be unavoidable considering Xena: Warrior Princess - Season One was shot on 16mm film stock. It wasn't until halfway through the second season that the producers switched to 35mm film stock. I haven't noticed any of the compression artifacts or other problems that plauged the AB release of this season.

5.0 out of 5 stars this is how a legend rightfully begins... June 28, 2002
By Laurel
Format:VHS Tape
The 1st Season of Xena was addictive, mindblowing and, like all beginnings, had some kinks to be worked out. The casting of Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor was phenomenal from day one; Lawless (as most of you probably know) plays a profound, regretful, blue eyed, powerful former warlord who, thanks to help from Hercules, sets out to thoughtfully atone for her past reign of terror.

"Nothing you can do can erase the shame you've brought onto your kinsmen," Xena's mother exclaims. "Probably not," Xena admits sadly, eyes dropping, "but I'm going to spend the right of my life trying." And does she ever! In one of her first attempts at being "good", the warrior princess lays eyes on Gabrielle, a spirited and selfless village girl who, after seeing Xena's heroics, wants to "join up with Xena" and "wants to be a warrior like her" As all fans know, Gabrielle is instrumental in reforming Xena by sharing her unconditional love & showing her how much good there is to be done. Xena, of course, has a renewed purpose & reason to live while gladly ready to die for Gab. Like most 1st seasons, the characters are a little shaky, the acting is new & unsual, & the plots are somewhat undefined & experimental & therefore not as soul pinching, action packed and heartpounding as the seasons that so bravely followed. Also, while X & G's relationship grew dramatically over the years, it was only "friendly" at this stage of the game. At least they wised up in the 2nd season.
Still, it holds a special place in the hearts of all Xena fans as the noble beginning of a timeless legend of pursuing the things that matter: love, sacrifice, the greater good, nobility, triumpth, loss, life.

Is There...?
Er, no. And don't believe everything you read on Wikipedia. In "Altared States" (season 1) Xena and Gab go fishing underwater (yeah, they're naked, but I'd still rate the scene PG--no nudity is shown.) There's also a rather suggestive kiss at the end of "A Friend in Need II"... Read More
