Synopsis


Picking up where season five of Xena: Warrior Princess left off, season six begins with Xena (Lucy Lawless) handily defeating the combined forces of the Olympian Gods, who had hoped to forestall their prophesied demise by killing both Xena and her reformed warrior-princess daughter, Eve (Adrienne Wilkinson). The end of Olympia left but a few survivors, among them Xena's old nemesis Ares (Kevin Smith), the God of War -- now rather comically reduced to pathetic mortal-hood. Together with her traveling companion, Gabrielle (Renee O'Connor), and the ladies' new cohort, Virgil (William Gregory Lee), the son of their late friend Joxer, Xena embarks upon a whole new series of globetrotting adventures, taking her to Africa and to the Land of Norse, where she finds herself smack-dab in a Wagnerian "Ring Cycle" (mostly of her own making). Xena also does her best to avoid the prognostications of the Heavens Above that she is next in line to the Throne of Hell upon the "retirement" of reigning demon Mephistopheles. Occasionally digressing from the standard Xena format, a handful of episodes were set in the Present -- that is, the 21st century A.D. One of these was a satirical spoof of the old radio and TV series You Are There, while others dealt with the misadventures of Xena's contemporary fans and the familiar cast members' modern-day, lookalike descendants. The season ends with a two-parter set in faraway Japan, where Xena is voluntarily slain so that she may do battle in the Afterlife with the ghost of a malevolent samurai. Gabrielle's efforts to revive Xena, so often so successful in the past, come a cropper this time, and it looks as though Xena: Warrior Princess is definitely, permanently over and done with. However, hope is held out that a sequel or a spin-off may still be in the works, so stay tuned. ~ Hal Erickson

    A disappointing finale

    Posted
    prlwctd

    Xena deservedly became a smash (even more so than the series that it spun off of, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys). However, the show began to falter as it entered its final season, with the title character becoming more and more godlike (and, as a result, less and less human) and, even worse, her bond with her sidekick Gabrielle became minimized. Perhaps, then, it shouldn't have been a complete surprise that the show's finale, while possessing a more epic scope than the finale for Hercules, is a letdown. Yet another previosuly unmentioned chapter of Xena's past returns to haunt her. This time, it's a figure in Japan who, like Lao Ma in Chin, became smitten with Xena, who, still being a warlord at this point, allowed her ambition to overcome her morality. Although the photography is first rate, this trip to Japa seems to come out of left field making the whole episode seem anticlimatic with the series itself (whereas both the respective finales for Star Trek: The Next Generation & Star Trek: Deep Space Nine had some prior buildup). The ending of the episode is especially unsatisfying as most anyone who's already seen it knows.

    I've gone through Season 1 through 5, waiting for season 6, Where do I begin?, Let's just say ,when people binge watch, this is one of those shows you would want to do that too, Even if you saw XENA when it was originally Air on TV, How would you Not want to own this. It's a real "Must Have" in every XENA's collection,

    Season six finally released, but the menu only has symbols, no words, and takes a few moments to decipher what symbol means what function. The cheapest, worst menu I've ever seen, even worse than Warner Brothers. The season finale is presented in 2 part format, in case anyone is wondering.

    I have been waiting patiently for the release of the repackaged slimmer version of Xena Warrior Princess Season 6. Well worth the wait for this final season! :-)
