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.

That awkward moment when you think you've traveled to a mystical land but actually you just went to Russia... so relatable. In the strangest and most controversial episode to date, Xena proves to have no real agency or autonomy in her own life. Despite telling a very interesting story about Xena's past (back in season 3), the show seems hell-bent on retconning all of it so they can shove Alti into the storyline. Chris says it best: "I don't know why much of this is happening... which I think is probably a flaw."

We're sorry, Xena, but your Gabby is in another underworld! Season 4 starts off with a weird bang, setting the tone of cultural appropriation that will wreak havoc on the rest of the season. Xena skitches into Amazon heaven to find her dead friend, and instead uncovers the evil plot of a dark figure from her dark past. Aka, tldr, not only was Xena a bloodthirsty warlord hell-bent on world domination; she was also corrupted by an evil witch!

We promised Jack, so you get Jack! Chris and Ally discuss episode 2 of Jack of All Trades (a lesser known action pack show starring Sam Raimi's golden boy, Xena's own Bruce Campbell): Sex and the Single Spy. Now that the status quo has been fully established, the show starts to stretch its legs, doubling down on the Scarlet Pimpernel hijinks and also turning out some very funny jokes, actually. We also take take a not-so-deep dive into the world of Jack of All Trades fanfiction.

Coming to you live from quarantine, Chris and Ally jump forward to possibly the sickest episode of the entire show. It just felt right. After all the trials and tribulations of Dahak and Hope, it's nice to have a more realistic situation to deal with: Xena's got lice, Gabrielle's got a fungus, and Joxer's radish stew gave them both the shits.

This episode was so gross that even Chris, a self proclaimed Renee O'Connor stan, found himself questioning his chioces.  Remember: even the nasties have to eat.

In our last episode of Xena Warrior Princess season 3, Chris and Ally discuss ceiling shields as an architectural staple. Hope has hatched from her cocoon and there is havoc to be wreaked. Also, please congratulate Gabrielle, she's going to be a grandma! Your hosts also give their final thoughts on the third season, which is to say: season 3 is dead, long live season 4!

Feb 21, 2020

Please don’t be too disaPPOINTED!!!, but Chris and Ally had to watch two more hercules episodes before they could finish season 3 of Xena. Anyway at least you get to learn what a mumfence is, and witness the delivery of one of the most iconic line deliveries in all of television! Season 3, Episode 21.5 is here: THE GOOD EPISODE HOLE.

We talk about Hercules the Legendary Journeys, season 4 Episodes 13 & 14: Armageddon Now parts 1 and 2.

On this episode of Gourmet Makes, Claire Saffitz attempts to make a human sacrifice to the goddess. As we enter the final arc of Season 3, Chris and Ally are joined by special guest Alex Reulofs (@AquaMoon1792). In a plan to make new-greeceland great again, an army of the ignorant decides to bring on the end of the world by reviving Dakah's daughter... GABRIELLE'S daughter Hope. Hudson Leick is also back and doing the absolute most.

Jan 24, 2020

In lieu of having to watch and talk about hercules the legendary journey anymore, Chris and Ally decide to skip forward in time into something a little more... revolutionary! Jack of All Trades was a lesser known action pack show, and starred Sam Raimi's golden boy, Xena's own Bruce Campbell. It's the Scarlet Pimpernel/Gilmore Girls mashup that nobody really asked for or remembers, but there's always room in our hearts for just some unapologetically dumb swashbuckling hijinks.

This episode was just fine, but apparently the creative team involved HATED it. Feast your ears on (the analysis of) a performance that makes Lucy Lawless cringe to this day! Ally and Chris reunite for their first episode of the new year to figure out the difference between stealing, taking and hiding. Plus, Xena almost does some racial profiling!

This episode took Chris's love of Autolycus and Ally's love of boat stuff and SPAT IN OUR FACES. A fuckboy, a toothman and a slave owner walk into a boat. What do you get? A boring, pretty useless episode where the only joy seemed to come from Lucy Lawless sending wet cabbages floating past Renee O'connor.

Ally is wrist-deep in a bass, and Chris has drowned in his own reflection. In this manic one-off episode, Aphrodite steals the north star and our heroes find themselves OBSESSED with different subjects of extreme inconvenience. Come on, listeners! Let's get wet!!!

Despite taking the time to proactively overcome her issues in multiple episodes now, Gabrielle seems to be struggling once again with the memory of her past misdeeds. Enchanted breasts and selective memory loss run rampant in this otherwise tedious clip show, which actually feels quite erotic on paper despite falling short in the execution. Considering what the show still has in store for Gabrielle, it feels valid enough to rehash her backstory. But was the least erotic sponge bath scene in television history really necessary?
