Guide Review - "Xena: Warrior Princess - Season Two" DVD Review
I was entertained by the interesting mix of myth-inspired stories and fast-moving action adventure in "Xena: Warrior Princess - Season Two." I think that the show’s greatest asset is Lucy Lawless, whose charisma, strong-willed persona, and sex appeal gives her character more credibility than seems to be in the scripts themselves. Some episodes of "Xena: Warrior Princess" didn't draw me in completely, perhaps because the show is so often over-the-top and self-consciously campy that it's hard for me to be pulled into its fantasy world. That being said, though, I had a lot of fun watching season two on DVD, and I imagine fans of this series will enjoy the DVDs even more than I did.
