Trivia

The campfire scene was originally longer in length, but cut out. It has Xena at her campfire lamenting the loss of her cook, the only reference to her missing her old life with her army. They had Gabrielle convince Xena to bring her along because she can cook, but they rewrote the ending. They wanted to end with the two characters building a personal connection, rather than make it a joke. See more »

Goofs

When Xena arrives at the bridge with Argo, she calls the horse "boy," even though it is established in future episodes that Argo is female. See more »

Sins of the Past

You have to seperate the Xena the series from the reminiscences of lusty teenagers who stumbled on to the series in the mid 1990s and adored Lucy Lawless.

Xena: Warrior Princess is a cheesefest, it is low budget but made up by its New Zealand scenery and being action packed. It helps that Lucy Lawless looks good in leather.

The character of Xena first appeared in a trilogy of episodes from Hercules where she was shown to be a murderous warlord who was happy to slaughter villagers. Here she is looking for redemption and atone for her past.

In the opening scenes we see Xena save a village from a warlord called Draco. However she does not receive a warm welcome from the villagers, a village she previously torched. Even her mother does not welcome her.

Gabrielle a young farm girl bored of her village life and not wanting to be married persistently follows Xena about wanting to be her sidekick. She believes that Xena can be a good person.

It is a journey they would travel together for some years.

There is a lot of action fight moves from Xena in this first episode, some silliness as she tries to get Cyclops to mend his ways and the villain Draco has a sense of fun about him.
