The best part is in _Outcast_ , when Salmoneus (Robert Trebor) tries to come up with a marketing campaign (including theme song) to raise people's approval of Xena.
Though Lucy Lawless has appeared in 2 other roles on "Hercules: the Legendary Journeys", these are her first three in the role of Xena. The three eps come from the first season (or second if you count the 5 tv movies that preceded the show), the last of the three eps being the season finale.
If you're looking for campy Xena silliness, this is not for you. These are rather serious and dramatic, focused on the relationships between Xena, Iolaus and Hercules. Most importantly, it explains how Xena evolves from a ruthless warrior into an agent of good. I personally prefer the more serious Xena episodes anyway, so I loved these. Even if you've never watched Hercules, you won't feel left out. And Herc fans will enjoy the ever-fluxxing attitudes of the main characters that make this collection like a work of art. Ok, maybe not a "work of art", but still pretty awesome.
The only qualms I have with this dvd is that there are NO extra features (save language selections and short text bios on Sorbo and Lawless). Also, everytime you load the dvd it starts playing "The Warrior Princess" (the first episode on the disk) automatically, so if you want a different one you have to go to the menu. Otherwise, it's great!
So before you blow [money] on Xena season 1, get this disk first to wet your pallet with some old-fashion kick-butt action!
