The "new" Xena kills less often than then "old" Xena, but still quite often. In this episode, Xena ties a rope of a kite to Gareth the Giant, who's then struck dead by lightning bolt that hits the kite, just as Xena planned. The "new" Xena's body-count after this episode is 59. See more »


The titles of the chapters are shown in correct Greek language, except the fact that the letters "n" and "y" (or "u") are inverted: in Greek alphabet they resemble respectively a "v" and a "u". See more »


Minya: [Minya is playing with Xena's whip] The rotten thing came back and bit me!
Xena: You gotta be careful with it. What are you doing with my whip, anyway?
Minya: It isn't your whip, anymore. I traded my best frying pan for it, fair and square.
Gabrielle: Look, we have to cook our food. I am still waiting for the fish I had for lunch to stop brying to swim upstream!
Xena: No, this isn't about cooking, is it?
Gabrielle: I don't know what you're talking about.
Xena: I messed with your scroll, so you... You traded my whip for a frying pan? I want ...

loved it!
30 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Xena episode is so different, it's great! Like most people I was attracted to Xena for all the action! And when I saw this episode for the first time, I hated it, because lack there of! But after the demise of -THE GREATEST TELEVISION SUPER HERO- and now 2006 buying all the DVD's, I found myself loving this episode! For me this episode shows Xena and Gabby to be more than just characters, they start to feel real! And so now it's officially apart of my top 5! The complete list, 1.ADVENTURES IN THE SIN TRADE PT. 1,2, 2. THE IDES OF MARCH, 3.SEEDS OF FAITH, 4. AMPHIPOLISE UNDER SIEGE and 5. A DAY IN THE LIFE! True Xena fans who hate this episode, it deserves a second look!
