Rank #1: S2E15 - Hottest Warrior in the Butt-Kicking Biz

Podcast cover
Read more

From fangirl to beloved wife, Gabrielle has gone through a considerable glow-up. This Valentine's Day episode does exactly what it says on the tin, documenting just a normal day in the life of living with a living legent, aka, domestic bliss with Xena and Gabrielle, two married wives who love each other. Special guest Ally Brinken (@AllyBrinken) returns as we ask if it's really possible to cook with Xena's juices and make fun of Gabrielle's very obvious praise kink. Pour one out for Gabrielle's frying pan, though. We'll be talking about Season 2, Episode 15 of Xena Warrior Princess: A Day in the Life, which is arguably one of the best episodes of the entire show!

Rank #2: S3E15 - Ally Got Conned!

Podcast cover

Joxer, aka a "little nothing boy", is beaten within an inch of his life by a shady casino mogul. Sounds like a great set-up for some heist hijinks and absolute tomfoolery! Chris and Ally learn that gambling is bad actually, but more importantly, Ally, like Joxer, gets herself ENTIRELY bamboozled! (it's really embarassing.)

Rank #3: S2E10 - Using Every Part of the Xena

Podcast cover

We’re perpetuating the war on Christmas by skipping A Solstice Carol (because we already talked about it last year) and jumping right into The Xena Scrolls, Chris’s ultimate favorite episode of Xena Warrior Princess! Special guest Annie Craton (@anniezard) returns to help us figure out if this episode is an actual clip show, or just a show with clips. But whatever it is, we know it DID inspire the entire concept of uber fic. And has Ally finally found a replacement for her Lymond obsession? FIND OUT NOW!

Rank #4: S3E5 - Gabrielle's Abs

Podcast cover
Read more

In the midst of Passover, Easter AND 4/20, Chris and Ally get together to talk about the midst of Renee O'Connor. That is... Gabrielle's abs! Honestly there is just so much talk about fake baby tummies and real washboard tummies, but only because Dahak is apparently AN ACTUAL REAL LIFE RELIGION AND THIS IS TOO MUCH TO DEAL WITH.

Will something finally come between Xena and Gabrielle? Will Xena break her rule of NOT KILLING THE BABIES? The third Moses story of Xena Warrior Princess TO DATE will answer all these questions and more, as well as give you a birth scene filmed exclusively in dutch angles. Also, please hire Chris and Ally to punch up your scripts. Please. They're so good.

Rank #5: Episode 10 - Another Greg Bites the Dust

Podcast cover
Read more

If ever you needed a reminder that Chris and Ally are still slogging through season one, Gabrielle throws herself at yet another shitty Greg in the second episode in a row featuring a deity chained up somewhere. Only this time, instead of resulting in everyone's untimely death, now NOBODY can die. Their levels of pain and suffering may vary, but one fact remains: that this episode should probably have been called Death in CHAIR. So, come. Sit. Enjoy a sumptuous feast of earthly delights.

We are joined by Elle Collins (@AnotherElle)!!! An expert in podcasting, they raise interesting points (queer people love Xena!) and ask tough questions (does Xena actually have super powers??). Elle, you remain the best.

Happy new year!! Chris and Ally are back and starting 2019 off strong! Special guest James D’Amato (@OneShotRPG), having somehow managed to actually watch the film, joins to talk about Hercules and Xena - The Animated Movie: The Battle for Mount Olympus, an film with incomprehensible stakes and a plot that could have been been solved with a single conversation. Some points brought up include the Jack Kirby-reminiscent character designs, Hanna-Barbera nostalgia, line weights(!!!!!), and the fact that Hercules doesn’t vote.

We are also joined by a stock photo of a smiling Chinese woman watching TV.

Chris and Ally have finally arrived at the Dahak arc, a dark and very drawn out period in the timeline of Xena Warrior Princess. But before we get too deep into messiahs and devils and the end of the world, they get to talk about Boudica, a historical female warrior who influenced the character of Xena and who actually existed in real life! 

And also Gabrielle gets impregnated by and/or with the spawn of a literal satan. Hooray! Welcome to Dahak Business!

Hurry up and ditch Ned Ryerson, because we've finally made it to the groundhog day episode of Xena, Warrior Princess! In what is honestly one the best episodes we've seen so far, Been There, Done That finds Xena stuck in a time loop! Will she figure out what's got herreliving the same day over and over again, or will she be doomed to watch Joxer, Gabrielle and even Argo die for the rest of eternity?

Show's over, folks. Xena, the warrior princess, is dead. We are joined by special guest James D'Amato (@OneShotRPG), a noted fan of kissing. He brings with him the spirit of gaming as we discuss the D&D-friendly themes that appear on the show, and in this particular episode. Autolycus, the king of thieves, shows up, channeling the spirit of Xena, while Gabrielle channels the spirit of a dom. We also discuss what our coffinsonas would look like. Coffins that look exactly like us, that is. Let go and hold on, listeners, because when the lips are lockin', don't come a knockin'!

Coming down from Chris's favorite episode of Xena, we now have the episode that Chris was dreading the most! The mainstream media didn't really know the difference between being trans and doing drag, so we're going to do our best to clarify! Special guest Ashley Rogers (@LucretiaDear4) us to discuss the history of drag and the safe space it presented for the trans community in the 90s... but we also spend plenty of time making fun of some very unfortunate ribbon twirling.

Rank #14: S3E17 - Mnemosyne Mnonsense

Podcast cover
Read more

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?

After a slew of wacky hijinks episodes with zany fun and kooky jokes, it's time to get sad. Xena takes us back to uncanny valley, aka centaur hell, and not even Callisto can make this better.
