In the series, Xena is said to have been born in the city of Amphipolis. Amphipolis was a real ancient Greek city, a colony of Athens which was established in 437 BC. It fell under the control of Sparta in 424 BC, was annexed by the Kingdom of Macedonia in 357 BC, fell under the control of the Roman Republic in 168 BC, and was eventually annexed into the Roman Empire. The city declined under the Byzantine Empire, and was abandoned in the late 8th century AD. Its remains are in the vicinity of the modern city of Serres, in the Greek department of Central Macedonia. Archaeologists have found several ancient tombs and monuments in the city. See more »
Likeable Show About Redemption Mixed With Great Comedy
This was an amazing show that switched from comedy to high drama to tragedy to sword-fighting action and mayhem. All of this usually happened in the same episode. A great show for students of mythology, although the writers did incorporate their own ideas (into the mythological settings and characters) to give the show more texture and layers. The best part of the show was Xena and Gabrielle's intense affection, friendship and respect for one another. They are truly partners in everything they do and always willing to sacrifice for one another. However, there's plenty of comedy as well to keep the show from getting too serious. The more episodes you watch, the more you'll like and understand the concept of the show, and how it works on different levels simultaneously. Very highly recommended.
