The Return of the Princess.
24 April 2007 | by (Mansfield, Pennsylvania.) – See all my reviews

After a memorable three episode arch on Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Lucy Lawless returns in her own series as the tragic Xena: Warrior Princess. The character's home and mother are introduced as well as motivation for her walk on the wild side that would be fleshed out in later seasons. Xena also meets life partner Gabrielle who acts as her conscience throughout the series. The show hits the ground running and this is a fine example of what would be coming, with Xena fighting those who preyed on the weak as well as the sins of her past. The only flaw is that it could have used a more in depth view at Xena's past. Even with Jay Laga'aia as Draco, former ally/infatuated suitor, the scenes between her mother and her are more interesting.

P.S. Gabrielle's betrothed, Perdicas, would later return in a different form.
