Xena: Warrior Princess Season Two DVD collection summary:
- 6 DVDs, with 4 episodes each except for 2 in the last; 22 total episodes.
- 1 CD-ROM, with largely useless content.
- Video: MUCH better than the grainy 16mm film transfer of Season One.
- Audio: Dolby Digital throughout (a big step up from the Dolby Stereo of Season Two).
- DVD Extras: Good-quality stills, plus audio and video commentary on three episodes. Season One included zip - nada - bupkus. MUCH better!
- CD-ROM: Same old junk as was included for Season One. Why?
- Price: Lower than Season One, for better quality. Yay!
- Episodes: 22. Season One had 24. The only comparative downside.
Season One rated just over 3.5 stars. Season Two is worth a bit over 4.5 stars -- a major step up.

Still, the Xena series DVDs have a ways to go to match the sound and picture quality of other TV series. For example, the "La Femme Nikita" Year 1, recently purchased, is far superior in terms of both color rendition and sound, particularly in color(blues and reds)and stereo separation and bass reproduction. As a Xena fan since the first year, I'm still waiting for the DVD quality to match the quality of the acting, scenery and storylines.
Of note, I purchased the final Xena episode DVD more than a year ago, and its quality is top drawer, so I don't think it has to do with any of the series production values.
Regardless, the Warrior Princess truly rocks!...and I'm still buying Year 2 (again), but hoping for better quality in years 3-6.
Update as of 03 Sep 03. Had the oportunity to watch four episodes and the interview with Tapert, Lawless and O'Conner on the new (02 Sep) Anchor Bay release. Agree with tgsbch's comments regarding audio and video quality and thinness of the DVDs themselves.Read more ›
Then one day I found the last episode of the series on DVD and, priced at $1.99, how could I resist finding out what all the fuss was about. Well, what I watched on that DVD was no "jiggle" show. I was blown away and picked up Season Two to see if the rest of the show could live up to the finale.
I was not disappointed.
Xena: Warrior Princess is one of the best TV shows I've ever seen. Period. It's a show all about fun. Pick any episode from this incredible season and let yourself be entertained. It's clear the creators of the show wanted each episode, regardless of plot, to be fun. Oh sure, it's campy, over the top and about as historically accurate as Meet The Spartans. But they just throw everything, including the kitchen sink, into every episode. And when I say fun, I don't mean mindless fun. The shows are well-written, well-acted and they mix comedy, action, history, myth, drama and characterization deftly. The final result cannot be classified as any one of these elements. But the mix makes for great entertainment.
Although a little light on the special features, this season does have some good commentaries both audio and video and there's a nice behind the scenes featurette with interviews from cast and crew.
I thoroughly enjoyed this season and have since picked up ALL the others. Xena is truly a unique viewing experience. I highly recommend it. And, TV station, I'm awaiting my apology for forcing me to wait this long to see it. But that's the beauty of DVD. Xena is a winner!
