From the Back Cover

The Warrior Princess' smash-hit fourth season riveted fans with a gripping collection of episodes that unveiled secrets of Xena's tumultuous past, revealed heroic triumphs and tragic failures destined in her future, and, in the end, left them stunned beyond words by the events of the electrifying episode, "The Ides of March."

Though Xena discovers that Gabrielle is still alive, her joy is woefully tempered by the unsettling knowledge that Gabrielle's evil daughter, Hope, has survived and given birth to a monster.

From the darkly tragic storyline in "A Family Affair" emerges a season of heart-wrenching tales that will pit Xena against a host of past foes, threaten to end her relationship with Gabrielle, and unveil the ill-fated story behind the birth of her beloved son, Solan.

At the end of Season Three, Gabrielle had jumped into an abyss to kill her evil child, Hope. Season Four opens with Xena undertaking a spiritual journey to recover her friend. I don't want to spoil anything major, so I'll just mention that the pair travels to India in search of Gabrielle's Way (path through life) and in the process Xena discovers her own Way. They bump into Pompey, Caesar, and Brutus repeatedly, and are instrumental in setting up the famous Ides of March incident at the Roman Forum. This sets up a big dramatic ending for the season, and there's a modern episode (about past life regression) in the final episode.

Season Four has important consequences for the Amazons, shows how Xena played a pivotal role in Roman history, dabbles in FOUR different spiritual paths (shamanism, crusaders, the Way of Love, and the Way of the Warrior), travels to a new part of the Hercules/Xena world, and kills off some major characters. Plus Joxer turns out to be less lame than expected. There's a LOT going on this season.

The DVD collection of Season Four of "Xena: Warrior Princess" contains even more extras than the oodles included with Season Three. The collection includes nine DVDs and one CD-ROM; that's one more disc than for Season Three. There are the usual "interviews" (episode commentaries) featuring many of the usual suspects (Lucy Lawless, Renee O'Connor, Robert Tapert, Steven L. Sears, Eric Gruendemann, Ted Raimi, Bruce Campbell). The two sets used for the commentaries are the same as for Season Three. There's the expected blooper collection, with heavy use of *BLEEP* to cover the naughty words. There's a fairly long Ted & Bruce bit, where Bruce's first book ("If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor") is pitched repeatedly.

Season 4 is not my favorite season it. It was overly sentimental, much like season 6. But I won't comment on the season, I'll comment on the set.
First and foremost, the claim of "director's cuts" is false and leads people to believe they're going to get an extended episode. A series of extended, cut and alternate footage is a more honest description of what we see. The presentation, could have been better. I'd rather see the original, then see the extended (or whatever) version of the scene. I don't like the compactness of the presentation.
Widescreen, oh let me count the ways. Widescreen versions of the 4th, 5th and 6th season exist. It's a shame the manufacturer (not to be confused with the distributor--Anchor Bay) Davis-Anderson was unable to secure these versions. Although, I doubt they tried very hard to secure them.
The Commentaries and interviews, key episodes are missing from this. A commentary on Adventures in the Sin Trade was warranted and need. Interviews on other subsequent episodes (mainly, Past Imperfect -- a key episode in Xena's backstory) were not be found. However, it's not because there was nothing shot. There was, however the manufacturer--Davis Anderson--opted to not include the interviews.
Bloopers. Sadly, the only bloopers that seemed to have been kept were the ones that were printed for gag reels and anyone who's a member of the fan club (or was) has probably seen them. That's okay. Season 4 has some of my favorite slip ups.
The packaging a new design to keep down costs, but I don't like have to take out one disc to get another one out.
There are some glitches in the digital-remastering, but it's a lot better than the previous sets and the sound is better this time around, in my own humble opinion. Overall, the technical aspects of the sets is improved.
Aside from that, I think Davis-Anderson lowered their standards to get this set out in a hurry. It has the aoura of being a rushed to production set.
