Dust off your goatees and wear a headband directly across your forehead, because Chris and Ally are talking about the mirrorverse, babey!!! The Hercules: The Legendary Journeys episode called Stranger in a Strange World (season 4, episode 5) features Lucy Lawless as Xena. However, she's not like any Xena we've seen before! With all those "cheap signifiers of harlotry", she's more Xena as Harley Quinn than Xena Warrior Princess.

The concept of the mirrorverse trope is explored, and it's not entirely clear whether a mirror Xena would have been born evil, turned good for a little while, and then ultimately decided that it wasn't for her. Join us, won't you, as we do our best to tolerate Kevin Sorbo, laugh at Ares, the god of love, and wonder why the mirror Aphrodite isn't the goddess of hate, but instead is just... a boring normal person dressed like a formal Starfleet officer on shore leave.
