This episode swaps Xena's dark past with a merely plaintive one as we get a fairly underwhelming origin story and a fairly underwhelming SECOND brother for Xena to play off of for a single episode. Chris and Ally are joined by Kelsey Buckmaster, who has never caught an arrow mid-flight but HAS shot one in half. She also shares some pretty fascinating and wholly unexpected (seriously, you'll never be able to guess!) information on actor Joseph Kell. But also, is "drumstick" a euphemism for being gay and liking dick? Please, someone tell us. Is this really a thing? Join us as we discuss Season 1 Episode 23 of Xena Warrior Princess: DEATH MASK.
WELP. It's official. This show is officially good. Three killer episodes IN! A! ROW! Finally, we get a watershed moment for Xena coming to terms with her guilt over her [kiwi accent] dark past [/kiwi accent]. Finally, we get... CALLISTO. Chris and Ally (Yes, you read that right - Chris is back!) are joined by special guest Alastair Stephens (@paperbullets) to discuss ladders and why we need them, opposition and why it is a powerful theme, and farm jail. Oh, and Joxer shows up, too!
STAY TUNED at the end of the episode for a brand new ORIGINAL SONG recapping the episode, written and performed by Allison Stock.
