We start season 5 off on a high note: Xena and Gabrielle are dead. Anyway, we're doing bible! It's an episode about bible, in a way that only Xena Warrior Princess can give us. Our heroes get caught up in a war between good and evil, and Callisto is there too. Will Chris clarify the meaning of Cultural Christianity, or will Ally have to walk through hell alone, with only the mental image of wheels covered in eyes for company?

We talk about Season 5 Episode 1 of Xena Warrior Princess: Fallen Angel.

In a time of wrestling gods, brawlers, and rings, the people cried out for a hero... and his name was John Cena!

From heel to hero, John Cena and his incredibly thick body have captivated the hearts and minds of kids, bros and wrestling fans alike. Stone Cold Chris Sims and Mixed-Martial Ally watch his iconic I Quit match against JB in an attempt to better understand basic thuganomics.

Flat-earthers beware: Ryan Gosling has entered the chat. Chris and Ally have finally watched some Young Hercules. It had child star turned A-list celeb Ryan Gosling in the titular role, and was the first Renaissance Pictures action pack show that was made both for AND about kids. How does this show compare to the Legendary Journeys, which will no longer be watched or discussed on this podcast? Find out in this episode!

We watched the first three episodes of Young Hercules!

As the old saying goes, always the Joxer, never the Xena. Season 4 gave us a lot of talk about reincarnation, so what better way to wrap things up than with some wacky modern reincarnation hijinks! Chris and Ally reflect on clip shows, y2k, and Renee O'Connor's directorial debut! We also get another iconic Xena kiss, in the only way we're allowed to have it. Finally, we ask the questions: if you were never really born, will you ever really die?

We talk about Season 4 Episode 22 of Xena Warrior Princess: Deja Vu All Over Again.

"I am just so tired of fake friends." -Julius Caesar

It's the ides of March, y'all!!! Come for the major historical event, stay for Chris's excellent Callisto impression. Both hosts are torn on how they feel about the Xena Revisionist History, but Ally is happy to let the Shakespeare nerd leap out. Will Julius Caesar crown himself emperor on March 15th???? or will, uh... something else happen instead?

We talk about Season 4 Episode 21 of Xena Warrior Princess: The Ides of March.

Oh Gabby, we're really in the endgame now! With the Amazons at risk of dying out, Xena kidnaps Brutus to use him against the Roman triumvirate. Meanwhile, Gabrielle has to prove that she's still a fierce leader despite being a pacifist, and a spunky new Amazon warrior shows off her very special hat.

We talk about Season 4 Episode 20 of Xena Warrior Princess: ENDGAME.

Whodunnit? WHO CARES! It's a real Xena She Wrote in this goofy episode. When a bounty hunter turns up dead, it's up to Xena and the gang to find the murderer before Discord (the goddess of unmoderated teenage chatrooms) drags an innocent to hell instead. This episode's got everything: party boys! bondage jokes! a murder horse! And as we near the end of Season 4, Chris and Ally have two important questions to ask: Why was Gabrielle born so beautiful? Why was she born at all? 

We talk about Season 4 Episode 19 of Xena Warrior Princess: TAKES ONE TO KNOW ONE.

Chris and Ally survived 2020 exclusively to talk about the Xena episode with one of the best scripts... and some of the dumbest fight stuff in the entire series. Joxer has his first kill, Najara has her second appearance, Gabrielle invents smoke bombs and Rob Tapert pushes the boundaries of the concept of suspending one's disbelief. Also featured in this episode is a chat about the numerous ancient greek video games people have been playing lately. Anyway, subscribe to our OnlyHercules...

We talk about Season 4 Episode 18 of Xena Warrior Princess: THE CONVERT.

It's time to get meta with this one-off episode all about Ancient Greek The Producers. While Xena goes off to take care of a warlord in the next town over, Gabrielle runs into a pair of theater producers, who teach her that you can make more money with a flop than a hit. Now where have we heard that one before...?

We talk about Season 4 Episode 17 of Xena Warrior Princess: THE PLAY'S THE THING.

In this bonus episode, Chris and Ally (aka Carlos Von Dracula and Skye V. Hickle) sift through a sea of broken links to find two more uberfics to read and discuss with you all. Brace yourself for some SMEXY fanfiction. 

We read some more Xena Warrior Princess Uber fanfiction!

We've finally made it through the the India Arc, which ended just as it began: with wildly graphic dismemberment. This controversial episode inspired anger from Hindu protesters and halfhearted disclaimers from the showrunners. Will Xena give up her warrior ways to protect her karma, or will she finally learn the true meaning of The Way. WITH UNDERSTANDING COMES TOLERANCE.

We talk about Season 4 Episode 16 of Xena Warrior Princess: THE WAY.

As you know, if you die in Greece, you go to Tartarus. If you die in the Matrix, you die in real life. But if you die in India (noted land of exotic mystery), you get reincarnated. Xena has to face an enemy trying to mess with her karmic reincarnated self! It just makes sense! Come for the best use of a swear word on network television, stay for the in-depth discussion of death as a localized concept. From Gabby’s queerly subtextual haircut to Xena’s sapphic foot tattoo, this episode catapulted Xena the show from tentatively queer to overtly so.

In search of inner peace, Gabrielle leads Xena to a mystical and exotic land of snake charmers, sword swallowers, and a rainfall of dismembered limbs! We've been dreading this arc for years, but, devi or not, it's finally time to talk about Xena's trip to India. In this episode, Chris and Ally admit to some of their own mistakes while also exploring the mistakes of Xena Warrior Princess, a show that existed in a time where people had different cultural biases.

We're putting out a hot dad alert for Timothy Omundson, as well as a missing persons report for this show's sense of its own characters. Gabby has her abs out like she always does, but it feels different this time. Please, try to enjoy our take on Devi: INDIA STUFF.

Listeners, draw yourself a relaxing bath and tuck yourself into your yin yang bed, because we're finally talking about Paradise Found, an episode that feels like a Star Trek shore leave one shot! Xena and Gabrielle fall down a hole and find themselves in a magical land of ~YOGA~! Gabrielle is looking for inner peace, while Xena's just looking for the exit. Gabrielle is graceful, flexible and strong, while Xena turns into a were-rat! Don't need nothing but a good time!

Folks, a tragedy has struck. Pour one out for Gabrielle’s good outfit. The green sports bra is no more. Other than that, this episode is a one-off filler Cinderella story with bad wigs for Aphrodite, a possible Marx Brothers deep cut for Ally, and plenty of jokes for Chris to laugh at. See you at the crossroads...

This is episode of Xena Warrior Princess where everything about it is... just a little bit worse than it needed to be. It's a rehash of the last Hoarde episode, only this time a blonde, white woman is involved! So... it's different?? I guess? Chris and Ally deal with it, but aren't all that excited about it.

This Patreon-funded bonus episode is actually the pilot episode for Chris and Ally's spinoff show Monkey Business, where they talk about The New Legends of Monkey, a Journey to the West inspired netflix series. As Chris says, it is arguable "the most Xena show since Xena ended." Binge culture was the final nail in the coffin where the syndicated action pack tv show was laid to rest, but New Legends of Monkey definitely captures those low-budget New Zealand vibes. This podcast was... IRREPRESSIBLE!

This episode serves as a momentary distraction from what you were listening to before you laid ears on our disgusting yet ultimately forgettable voices.

We watched Episode 1 of The New Legends of Monkey.

Autolycus, Joxer and Meg team up to kidnap a baby, do some hijinks, and steal a priceless treasure, while Chris demonstrates his penchant for acronyms. Meanwhile, Ally is caught off guard by the genuine laugh this episode startled out of her, and a new Patreon goal is introduced. Grab a plate of pickles and some strong cheese, because we're talking about Xena Warrior Princess, Season 4 Episode 10: Key to the Kingdom

Well, we’ve got yet another episode where Xena feels bad about her dark past, but this one actually slaps. Xena realizes that she has a copycat warlord following in her footsteps, while Gabrielle struggles with the nature of destiny and the possibility of not being in control of her own life. Chris and Ally also discuss the nature of warlord hats as they pertain to both ancient Greece and America in the year 2016.

As the dreaded India arc looms ever closer, Gabrielle, in a stunning display of being too busy seeing the good in other people to learn from her mistakes, falls in with yet another cult. Chris and Ally humbly ask for an f in the chat for Xena's second best chewing tooth, and also consider getting into the business of feet pics.

This fortnight Chris and Ally talk about Locked Up and Tied Down, the horniest name for the least horny episode of Xena Warrior Princess. The show keeps forgetting its stance on murder. Sometimes, it’s the worst thing a person could do, while other times it’s just a fun thing to joke about while killing time. In any case, this episode says murder is bad, because Xena is arrested for murder, and just kinda goes with it.

Will she survive her life sentence on Shark Island prison? Can crabs really devour an adult human body? Find out on our latest episode: CRAB ISLAND! (also, for a fun drinking game, take a shot every time Ally says “Shark Island”, but please don’t blame us for any hangovers!)

No good has ever come from a dance. If you've seen Footloose, you can probably skip this episode of Xena, but don't skip this episode of Xena Warrior Business! Wannabe dictator Shitty Steve is running a dead-end town into the ground, and Tara (arguably one of the worst characters on Xena) wants to help them legalize dancing. The burnin'... The yearnin'... this podcast will change the world of dance!

Maybe she’s born with it — maybe it’s helmetrey! In these unprecedented times, Chris and Ally find themselves at an impasse, with Chris bemoaning this episode’s redundancy while Ally revels in its status as a major turning point. This episode serves to remind us that Julius Caesar is still a threat, and also serves up many set pieces for Karl Urban to chew on. Is stabbing the homies gay? Listen to find out!

"Within us all there are two Kevin Sorbos. It's terrible." While Xena was dealing with Hope, Hercules was dealing with Dahak. Chris and Ally promised they would never go back to the dark place that is Hercules the Legendary Journeys, but unfortunately, if they want to fully wrap up the Dahak arc, they're going to have to break that promise. Please forgive these humble, mohawked podcasters. Chris and Ally have a coincidence, Iaolus learns about the trolley problem, Bruce Campbell shows off how well-versed he is at horror, and Ally displays her uncanny ability to recognize any minor actor from Attack of the Clones.

We watched Redemption, Season 5 Episode 11 of Hercules the Legendary Journeys.

Windmills, how do they work? After realizing that Gabrielle is alive, Xena returns to Potidea to find her, but stumbles across a rubber suit monster instead. Classic Raimi vibes are very high in this episode, Chris and Ally partake in an ethical discussion on the subject of linear time, and Lila is there too I guess.
