Though there are many other instances of subtext in earlier episodes, and later throughout the series, the episode 'A Day in the Life' was the first to largely fuel speculation that Xena and Gabrielle had a romantic relationship. Encouraged by Renée O'Connor's ad lib "she likes what I do," Renee's own idea to add that in. Furthermore, the playful bathtub scene, and Gabrielle kissing Xena on the cheek as they lay side-by-side under the stars to sleep. See more »

I know there may be those who either agree or disagree, but I love this show, ever since I was a kid I loved it. The scenery is excellent, the music is rousing, the dialogue is witty and fresh, the choreography kicks ass and the stories are entertaining with plenty of adventure. And I love Xena herself. She is a strong, spirited heroine, the sort of heroine I like, and I have to say Lucy Lawless is just perfect for the part. Garbrielle is a nice character too, in fact I like all the characters in this show they have a great likability about them and it comes through crystal clear.
Overall, just a terrific, fun show. In fact out of Hercules:The Legendary Journeys, Adventures of Sinbad and Xena:Warrior Princess, Xena is my personal favourite of the three for especially the choreography and its heroine. 10/10 Bethany Cox
