content review episode
19 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I dislike content review episodes in general. This one was perhaps somewhat better crafted than the rest. It takes place in the 1940s with the actors who play Xena, Gabrielle and Juxxeur playing their future descents, who incidentally look exactly like them. It is simply review of previous episodes. but the highlight for me is Gabrielle is dressed up to look like a female Indiana Jones. it's the cutest thing I've ever seen, i would watch it again just for that! Of course this episode while being a review episode, has its own plot, which i wouldn't ordinarily review for you, hence I might spoil it. but as I need 10 lines to submit this... I'll review it anyway. the descendants are looking for the "Xena scrolls" which, it must be Gabrielle's writings of Xena's many adventures. The descendants all meet together and join in the effort to find the scrolls, while some bandits almost beat them to it. Through combined effort of many forces, a tomb is opened that contains the scrolls, plus Xena's chakram. The chakram was disassembled, but once put back together, Ares, god of war, who was entombed is then freed. Xena possesses the body of her descendants and does battle with Ares. She manages to trap ares in the tomb and then she goes away and the 3 descendants rush out of the castle.
