Trivia

Rob Tapert , a huge fan of Hong Kong martial arts films, wanted to bring Hong Kong action into Amercian television. He especially admired Brigitte Lin, star of the classic film, The Bride with White Hair (1993), and her character in it, a warrior witch that walks through the gauntlet, survives, and changes her old ways. He decided to base Xena on her, thereby having his idea come true of bringing Hong Kong style action to American viewers. As stated in The Official Guide to the Xenaverse by Robert Weisbrot(printed in 1998, pages 5-6) on what Rob Tapert said: "he proposed to Jon Shulian, the co-executive producer, and head writer on Hercules, doing "a story about a female warrior," modeled on Lin's character in The Bride with White Hair.

User Reviews

The finest bit of entertainment since 1975
14 November 2000 | by TaramSee all my reviews

The six years that Xena appeared on American television and then in international distribution was the most marvelous ride on the entertainment merry-go-round since "Wonder Woman" premiered in 1975, twenty years earlier. This show had camp, pathos, mystery, intrigue, intricate character development and the invention of a magnificent new world through which the viewer was able to judge and measure his or her own living situation. If you ever get a chance, at least take the time to watch either the entire first or the entire fourth seasons of Xena (which had the most developed plots). It is a show that actually changed the world into a better place and that can be said of only a few shows in history.

If you like "Xena" you might also like "Queen of Swords", "Wonder Woman", "Supergirl" (maybe....), "Chameleon 1,2, &3", "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" or "Andromeda". You may also want to watch the direct to video cartoon release "Hercules and Xena: the Animated Movie: the Battle for Mount Olympus".
