>the show is bad
I respectively disagree with your opinion.
Just started rewatching it this morning. It's one of my favorite shows.
This is the armor she wears for 99% of the series
Her outfit choice in Japan was pretty cunning considering that getting shot was part of her plan
>when you realize Xena was nearly invulnerable because her real father was Ares
>also she banged Ares
I don't think they ever held a thread for 3 days
but then again, I think you already know this
Just one mom, or both moms?
Eh, Greek mythology was like that. I was only mildly surprised to learn that Zeus wasn't somehow his own mother, father, and daughter.
Xena in a lot of ways is just a better version of boudicca.
A non-failing one anyway.
Considering the fanbase for xena was a bunch of young dudes, I don't know about what it did for grrl power.
And the show openly takes from every mythology so I suppose?
no clue what you mean about trannies unless you mean joxter comedic hijinks
Scariest, funniest and qtest villain all rolled into one desu.
>Considering the fanbase for xena was a bunch of young dudes
I bet you think it was all boys who watched Buffy too
>no clue what you mean about trannies
Xena helped one win the Amphipolis beauty pageant
>Considering the fanbase for xena was a bunch of young dudes, I don't know about what it did for grrl power.
It was made for young girls and was responsible for plenty of homosexual awakenings.
>yfw that episode where her greatest foe reincarnates into her baby
well thats obviously false seeing as this thread is all dudes that grew up watching it.
Guys just have no incentive to go to cons while lesbians do.
I mean it was great coming of the age bait show
which turned out to be pretty great for other reasons
that episode where she blackens herself to assassinate caesar butt naked was great.
I bet I think majority of it was seeing as how the show was paired with hercules. I would argue that show had more women than guys.
My grandmother loved hercules.
she had kids, you got to let it go bro
This is not a show you take seriously. This is a show that you leave on while eating or doing something else, waiting for girls talking like girls or someone being a smartass or Aphrodite's tits
I think Alti was a scarier, and more effective villain. Callisto is great though.
>she had kids
It's a classic hollywood beard marriage. She's a dyke. The show was made for dykes. The entire thing was a homosexual indoctrination tool.
It's hilarious that idiots in denial still think that someone being married, or even having kids, doesn't mean they can't still be a total homosexual. This is Hollywood you laughable retard.
i laughed when xena dragged gabrielle with her horse and was gonna throw her off a cliff
then in some dahak episode gabrielle fell in the lava and i started laughing again and then callisto started laughing and i laughed even harder
well I am a guy, I love pussy so I know you're at least a little wrong already and knowing this place majority or most are guys as well
you just want to pick a fight about something and reality is you have no clue what you're talking about and in a lot of ways come off somewhere between a stormweenie and a self hating faggot.
Go make a hercules thread if you hate pussy that much.
So suddenly you care what women think?
I thought women are just warm holes to pop kids?
Kids are kids regardless of how they're begat. I mean if you gave that much of a shit about image you would be on a crusade to remove hillbillydom from white people. I mean if perception is that big of an issue.
>a bunch of dudes posting on 4chan = the entire demographic
This show is literally known for being associated with dykes. That's not 4chan shitposting, that's just how it is. You like pussy? Awesome, so do a bunch of the girls who like this show.
Liz Friedman is the greatest woman that ever lived.
>wrote for House, gave 13 a girlfriend
>wrote for Once Upon a Time, made Emma and Regina flirt constantly
>wrote for Elementary, gave girl Watson and girl Moriarty more tension than a bungee cord
>wrote for Special Victims Unit, gave Olivia and Cabot an emotional connection that no man could ever understand
>wrote for Orange is the New Black... ended up writing episodes of Orange is the New Black
That's some grade A reading comprehension you got there.
Uh... yeah. I'm totally going to go watch football and play some Call of Duty and then jerk my big penis to Kim Kardashian because 4chan is a site for dudes like us.
>I can't read
Nobody said this show attracts the attention of male homosexuals, just female ones. Why would gay dudes be interested in a show about two hot girls with a vaguely homoerotic relationship?
When Gabrielle is annoying the shit out of you but the purest love game ridiculous
>tfw gay dude
>tfw Xena WP is my favorite tv show
I dunno man, it's just a fun show.
There was literally an episode where a fangirl cloned Xena and Gabrielle in the modern day just so she could ship and harass them
>it's the lowest rated episode of the entire series
I like how xena basically cucked hercules out of all it's writers, stuntmen, props and camera crew
>it's a sexual innuendo that completely flew over your head as a kid but you fully understand it now as an adult episode
She also has the advantage of being approximately as strong and much faster/more skilled than Hercules
Feats like butchering nearly the entire Olympic Pantheon and defeating the Archangel Michael in a swordfight hint that Xena's way above and beyond any flesh and blood human being.
>well thats obviously false seeing as this thread is all dudes that grew up watching it.
>4chan represents the opinion of the public
leave your basement every once and a while You'll hear females talk about Xena more than you ever will hear a male.
you might think that, but you'd be wrong. there's an innocence in the Xena show that is leagues better than the toxic progressive agenda of today.
go ahead and make a Xena thread in /pol/.
I like labels backed by science so no, definitely not a progressivist, I love women.
I mean when people coming out of the red and white terrors in russia sound exactly like you and your label breaking ideology, I would be worried
Unless you want to be a communist
No one who talks about /pol/ actually knows what /pol/ feels on most subjects.
Xena's definitely not a show I could see them complaining about, it's far too campy and tongue-in-cheek.
She's married to Robert Tapert, who produced Evil Dead which has a fucking tree rape scene. If she was actually a dyke, she wouldn't marry him because she admit when she first saw that film, it outraged her and her feminist side to the point where she wanted to confront them about it. She ended up falling in love with him.
>completely flew over your head as a kid
Her character in Evil Dead is also a lesbian
>The entire thing was a homosexual indoctrination tool
>if you play a gay character, you must be gay in real life
Also, maybe you should look into the production of the show, and realize some of the people that worked on this show worked on Xena. I'm pretty positive that the undertones between Ruby and Amanda are a small reference to Xena with Gabrielle
>So suddenly you care what women think?
>I thought women are just warm holes to pop kids?
What the hell are you talking about? You're clearly a triggered lesbian.
I never said any of that you stupid fuck.
Xena is a dyke show designed to indoctrinated future dykes. Deal with it. Idiot.
>I'm pretty positive that the undertones between Ruby and Amanda are a small reference to Xena with Gabrielle
I hope so and the entire second season has Ruby and
DeaditeAmanda as an evil power couple
How is this outfit supposed to protect Hercules in battle? It's totally unrealistic!
I don't think you're the one that can deal with it pol nigger and as a male, you're seriously insecure and probably believe in one of the sand nigger religions and cry about degeneracy when you're no better than the limp dick lefties and their spacespace and micro aggressions and whatever nonsense they come up with.
Literally no different. Any dude that has ever lived with a woman that isn't her mother knows majority of the time you just have to tune out half the shit they think but my point was you're a hypocrite because people like you want to reduce them to comatose baby machines and then talk about hollywood marriage beards..they're still having kids.
It freaks me out how accurate porn parodies these days are with canon, continuity, costume/prop accuracy and even in-character behavior.
Are the people who make porn actually just huge geeks?
>again with the /pol/ bashing?
Yeah, again with the /pol/ bashing. It brings us a lot of traffic. I 'm not going to disregard it as an argument over an insult. So pick your price or move the fuck along.
The DC porn parodies look more comic-accurate than any of the frigging movies do.
It always bugged me how unattractive Gabrielle is. She looks a littl ebetter with short hair, but really she is just a real dog. No idea what they were thinking. Every side character they come across is even more attractive.
not him, but if you actually watch the porn parodies, they have higher quality costume than you can get at costume shops. I think they might have some kind of deal with a company.
like pic related looks very much of quality of what they used on the original show
Shes the girl next door, that girl you sat next to in school who you could always rely on, a hangout buddy which you realize in hindsight years down the line was the perfect waifu
Surprised no one posted this so far. It's obligatory in all Xena threads.
I swear to god I hate these double standards when a women gets a vibrator its seen as a bit of naughty cute fun.But when I order my 240volt Fucc master Pro 5000 blow up doll with 6 speed revolving pussy,and elastic anus with non drip-semen collection tray,together with optional built in realistic rape scream apparently I'm a fuccin pervert!
Kevin Sorbo from wikipedia:
In late 1997 while on a publicity tour for Kull the Conqueror and between the fourth and fifth seasons of Hercules, the newly engaged Sorbo experienced an aneurysm in his shoulder which caused three strokes. As a result, he was weakened for the next several years, a condition kept secret from the public while he recovered. During the last two seasons of Hercules (the fifth and sixth, which aired in 1998 and 1999), Sorbo had a reduced filming schedule to accommodate his condition, and more guest stars were featured in the show in order to reduce Sorbo's duties. The strokes, thought to be triggered when chiropractic manipulation of his shoulder released multiple blood clots from the aneurysm, left Sorbo with a permanent 10 percent vision loss, weakness, impaired balance, and migraines. In his 2011 autobiography True Strength, Sorbo revealed the details of his injury and how his wife Sam helped him recover.
Victoria Pratt is so believable as a woman who could actually beat the shit out of somebody
She wields a weapon that can kill immortal gods. She doesn't need "realistic" armor.
Iolaus from Hercules went on to direct episodes of Xena and directed an ash vs evil dead episode as well
The 90s encouraged tits and ass as much as possible because Hollywood fought to break the dominance of conservative soccer mom media groups, which in turn fought a vicious culture war against all forms of media and entertainment. Ultimately the entertainment medium benefited, as it allowed more room for creativity and darker narratives alongside raunchier stuff.
Doom was worse than Columbine.
GTA was worse than Doom.
Pokemon was worse than GTA.
Rock music was worse than Pokemon.
I don't know which era is better, though. On one hand, more and more people gradually woke up to the fact that all these scare tactics were ultimately bullshit by the turn of the century. On the other hand, more and more people gradually buy into the current liberal narrative of the media mob police. Can't criticize Jack Thompson if he is a she.
season 2 gabrielle was hot
that midriff and hair
i fapped everytime she was on screen
Shorthaired gabby was the best to be honest
As someone who loves Conan the Barbarian, will I like this show? Does she act like Conan or are they similar?
shitposting in a Xena thread should be a bannable offense
She broods a lot, fights creatively, is fairly well-educated, indulges in vengeance, has more than one sidekick and knows how to infiltrate places, but there's more toned down violence in MOST episides.
Yes to both, I suppose. Keep in mind that's it's a children's/young adult's show in many ways, even if the writing transcends that.
Forgot the image like a retard, now you can chill
Oh no, you're still angry. Looks like I'm gonna have to keep posting midriff.
fun fact, xena didn't show her tummy until season 6
also her boots are nikes on the inside
Xena 2.0 is better
fucking fite me fegits
Lucy always makes the most hilarious facial expressions.
I regular /pol/ and have nothing against Xena.
Xena was a show that happened to have those things, it wasn't build around shoving Certain social views down the audiences throats. It's just fun stories set in a fantasy word, it's genuine and honest in this.
If you'd visited /pol/ for more than 5 minutes you'd know that it isn't stormfront (and actively shuns that shit, or just jokes about it), the boards mainly just extremely against being told what and how to think, and hidden PC shit and hamfisted "progressivism" is that.
The irony is /pol/ hates TFA for the same reasons /tv/ does, yet tumblr fuck tards on here seem to think /pol/ is the enemy of /tv/.
Oh oh oh! I'm not him, but if I pretend to be angry, will you post more midriff?
The costume designers for this show really knew their shit. Everything is horrendously impractical but damned if it doesn't look amazing.
Wait what the fuck why don't I remember cut Gina Torres as Cleopatra in this show? I feel like that should at least stir a memory.
why are cons always so goddamn pathetic
i feel like as a kid, i liked herc more, because i felt it was more funny, and like i could understand more because i knew the names already
but xena was just better and honestly, i dont remember the "real" herc dicking around for six seasons and like 5 movies. it suffered a bit because he was already an existing person, xena could do whatever the fuck she wanted
including be evil, then good, then like 5 seasons later be sorta not revealed to be a demigod also
jesus christ thats horrible
no wonder he dropped off the radar
well that depends how you feel about Conan's cheesier elements like Conan punching a camel or tossing the witch into the fire mid sex.
It's a TV show, and it is PG by 90's standards, so its never as hardcore violent as Conan can get, but it doesnt shy away from some action, although violence is often toned down a bit.
the show is very campy too. So if you liked Conan's cheesy feel and "what you see is what you get" writing, (no unnecessary drama or convolution) then you'll like it I imagine. mind you the writing was often pretty good regardless
Xena could never be made today or it was it would be even more PC and tumblr fandom pandering
Difference is that in the 90's young people didn't give a fuck and weren't protesting for "safe spaces" or offended by every little thing.
That episode was fucking amazing. That and A Day in the Life. Man I loved that show in high school.
It made me a feel a bit better about being a dyke desu senpai
>tfw Lawless won't be in the reboot
Man Xena was great.
I remember one episode that was happening in China and there was some light wuxia in it and I think some dancing on the velvet or whatever that's called.
And one of the last episodes (maybe even the last) was Xena and Gabrielle reincarnated in present, living together and raising a family, one of them was male obviously, I think it was Gabrielle.
Why were there so many decent buff qts on this show and yet actresses in modern super hero flicks all look like cardio bunnies?
OP here. Thanks for keeping the thread alive whilst I slept
It's actually fairly good considering how shit the first episode was. The other anon was right, it does a fucking huge 180, it goes from angsty teenage love to angsty teenage love with people occasionally getting their bone marrow harvested while still awake.
More like lucy flawless
Which was a dayum shame. Had a ton of the same crew and actors as Xena & Herc. Also Craig and Bridget both were total qts.
That's true though I was more interested in the psycho lesbian dominatrixes. Imaging if Kahlan was more Xena-like and the main character and they were her main enemy. Sexy time and violence all in one.
He thinks Malin Akerman is Lucy Lawless. Not being able to recognize faces is a sign you are autistic.
Holy shit I just noticed these
does every episode have one of these holy fuck i never noticed this
I think /xena/ threads can definitely be classed in the same category as /stargate/ because both always seem to stay active for days and both have either zero or almost no shitposting. I think that's a good test for whether a show is GOAT or not.
>/star trek/ used to be maximum comfy
>people kept forcing generals
>Star Trek threads are almost all garbage now
Just be careful not to let /xena/ or /stargate/get too much exposure.
