A Fistful of Dinars
10 December 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

No chakram was used in this episode.

Xena meets her ex-fiance Petracles, someone who has a shady reputation. She and Gabrielle join him as well as the ruthless and untrustworthy assassin Thersites to find the location of the Lost Treasure of the Sumerian. It turns out to be ambrosia, the food of the gods, a mere morsel can turn a person to an immortal.

However Xena knows that the men will turn against them and on each other but will Petracles show some honour?

There was some good knockabout action but it also felt listless. Jeremy Roberts as Thersites was very good while Peter Daube as Petracles was dull.
