    Synopsis


    It had already been established before the first season of Xena: Warrior Princess got under way that the titular Xena (Lucy Lawless) had forsworn her former evil and despotic ways, and was determined to make amends for her past by helping innocents in distress. One of those "innocents" made her first episode in the series' debut episode: hero-worshipping young artist Gabrielle (Renee O'Connor), who decided to tag along with the (at first) reluctant Xena and share in her adventures. Perhaps as a strategy to deflect criticism of the series' violence (larger-than-life, to be sure, but violent all the same), the producers began including a final-scene "disclaimer" at the end of each episode, starting with "No babies were harmed during the making of this picture" in episode four, "Cradle of Hope". This device came in quite handy for the season's final episode, "Is There a Doctor in the House?," which the series' American distributor was on the verge of removing from the Xena package due to its violent content: The producers sidestepped this fate with the pithy disclaimer "Being that war is hell, lots of people were harmed during the production of this picture." Appreciating the joke, the distributor backed off. During the 24 initial Xena episodes, several recurring characters were introduced. Among these were vicious warlord Draco (Jay Laga'aia), Xena's ill-fated former lover Marcus (Bobby Hosea), war god Ares (Kevin Smith), Underworld overlord Hades (Erik Thomson) Gabrielle's onetime fiancée Perdicas (Scott Garrison), self-proclaimed King of Thieves Autolycus (Bruce Campbell), burned-out warrior Meleagor the Mighty (Tim Thomerson), Amazon princess Ephiny (Danielle Cormack), clumsy would-be warrior Joxer (Ted Raimi), traveling peddler Salmoneus (Robert Trebor) -- and, worse luck for Xena, her most formidable enemy, the blonde-tressed, merciless female warrior Callisto (Hudson Leick), who turned out to have more lives than the proverbial cat. ~ Hal Erickson

      Contrary to what SOME people will say here, DVD players are still used by more people than Blue-Ray machines. If you come out with it on Blue Ray, then great, but it was DEFINITELY a better idea to come out with the DVD first. Not ALL of us are slaves to technology & it would be presumptuous & inconsiderate to assume all people have Blue-Ray machines, especially in this economic climate. Thank you, Universal Studios, for recognizing that & bringing back this amazing show.

      i have had this series as well as hercules for years now on DVD and it is awesome intense and funny the acting is spot on and so it the production value in fact it's much better than the garbage the put on TV these days and if i were rich i would get a new tv and a blu ray player so i could buy this in the blu ray format but i work for a living so thats not an option for me...still it is great....

      Why is this on DVD and not Blu Ray

      I don''t understand how this can be a pre-order when this has been on DVD for years. I want them to release both Xena and Hercules on Blu-ray. Dvds are a thing of the past and this is my most beloved TV show ever and I will buy every single season of both Hercules and Xena if it is on Blu-ray. Come on guys, its 2010, get with the program

      Xena: Warrior Princess is a fun series to watch. Generally good morals about helping the vulnerable against the mighty who try to control through force. A companion series to Hercules at that time on tv.

      I actually bought this as a gift for someone who enjoyed the series when it originally aired. I couldn't pass up the complete first season at the price.

      I have always been interested in Greek mythology, and here is a fictionalso story with just a little basis in mythology with a strong female lead.
