From Amazon.co.uk

Just four minutes into "Sins of the Past," the first episode of Xena, you'll gladly follow the warrior princess anywhere. Taking on a gang of marauders, she leaps onto an upright spear embedded in the ground and, with a cry of "Ai-yi-yi-yi-yi," does a circular wall of death on their chests. A syndication phenomenon, this audacious 1995 series was a spin-off from Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. Lucy Lawless stars as Xena, dressed to kill in leather and breastplate. Her exploits are legend: "She came down out of the sky in a chariot throwing thunderbolts and breathing fire," remarks one awestruck boy in the first episode. Xena wants to bury her violent past, but there is no rest for the formerly wicked as she takes up arms (and feet) against any number of villains and mythological beasts. She is joined by Gabrielle (Renee O'Connor), a young peasant woman who "is not cut out for this village life," and runs away from home to join Xena in her adventures.

As the series evolved, speculation was rife about the true nature of their relationship. Playful and provocative teasers in several of these episodes give this first season an unexpected erotic charge, as witness "Altared States," in which the two skinnydip, and later, a drugged Gabrielle, revived by Xena, looks upon her and gushes, "By the gods! You are beautiful." Other memorable episodes include "Callisto," which introduces the vengeful female warrior who would further bedevil Xena in seasons to come; "Prometheus," in which Kevin Sorbo guest stars as Hercules; "Chariots of War," in which Xena wears a dress (!), and "Warrior...Princess," in which Xena trades places with her look-alike, a Princess named--yes--Diana, who is the target of assassins. By the gods, Xena is an absolute hoot whose pleasures--stylized action sequences, cheesy special effects, tongue-in-cheek anachronistic dialogue--are anything but guilty ones. Clumsy packaging, lack of commentary, and less than pristine picture quality are minor drawbacks to this otherwise thrilling set. --Donald Liebenson

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! 2 July 2007
By Esacion
Format:DVD
I have purchased this new edition of Xena:Warrior Princess Complete Series 1 and 2, and I am very glad that I did! The episodes are finally in the right order: the series 1 boxset contains all 24 of season One episodes, and in the right order! It is a delight to witness Xena and Gabrielle's adventures at the early years of their travels together.

Very recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best TV programs ever!!! 1 July 2007
Format:DVD
I did not watch this first time around on UK tv as could not get the channels that were showing it, however over the last 2 years I have collected the box sets and watched these but they are now quite hard to find so am glad they have released this version.

I would highly recommend this series as there are some excellent episodes, the main appeal to the series for me is Xena and Gabriell's relationship and how this grows and evolves through the series, there are 6 series all together and I've not yet watched the last, but have been told by friends that it is excellent. There are also some very funny episodes and some that will really make you think about life in general.

Another reviewer commented on the last box sets and how series one, volume I, had some episodes repeated on the volume II box set, I hope this is sorted as I have recently realised that I now have episodes missing, however watching it at the time I did not notice.

I hope you enjoy the hours of entertainment but make sure you have the next box sets ready as there are many great cliff hangers at the series finale, that you'll want to know what happens next.

This region 2 DVD boxset is OK, the episodes are in the right order, the picture quality is fine. It's good to go back to the '90s and see the adventures of a woman who is an antidote to soppy princesses - a woman with natural authority. On the downside, the DVDs do not have any subtitles. I don't mind the lack of features because I rarely get round to watching those anyway. However, I do like to turn down the sound at night, as the walls in this house seem to be made of cardboard (headphones broke the audio completely in the old TV set!) For anyone with hearing difficulties, this would be useless. Bad show, Universal Playback!

5.0 out of 5 stars mmm get the R1 boxset instead 25 July 2007
Format:DVD
I gave the new boxsets (uk ones) 5 stars just because its XENA and nothing else there are yet again no extras for the uk dvds so whats the point in releasing them again

i purchased all six seasons in collectors case plus the anniversary boxset (R1) for £90 from ebayy these are the far superior these r1 dvds have just about every xena behind the scenes and making ofs plus all other extras you can imagine

so go for the R1 dvds instead thats if you are a true xena fan

5.0 out of 5 stars complete at last 26 Oct 2007
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
the season of the show on dvd that is, since it was released in two half box sets last time. For those of you who came in late: this is a fantasy show about xena, warrior princess out to atone for past bad deeds by doing good ones, and how she travels around with her friend gabrielle, a bard, doing just that. Often comedic in tone, tongue in cheek, and occasionally really rather serious, a hugely entertaining show.

This collects the entire first season of twenty four episodes, and has four a disc, and six discs in total. This does appear to be a bit of a rush effort, as there's no direct scene access, no blurbs on the box in regard to each individual episode, it contains a trailer from the company for 'tv classics to video' [and not to dvd?!?] and the only extras are two photo galleries.

but what the heck. the episodes are in the right order. and in one box set. so it's worth having.

5.0 out of 5 stars XWP -Season 1 volume 2, A must have for any fan! 13 Jun 2006
Format:DVD
This season is one of my favourite seasons as there is a lot of action, suspense and heart felt for some episodes in this season, "The Greater Good" episode is my favourite in this season, the Warrior princess is taken down by a poison arrow by her greatest threat and her greatest enemy, with Xena dead, how will Gabrielle cope? Easy - she takes Xenas place, she even takes xenas clothes to make it look more convincing that xena is still alive.....

Another episode for this season I felt is a must to watch is called "Is there a doctor in the house", similarly, to "The Greater Good", this is the episode Gabrielle is severely injured in a battle between 2 armies, can Xena save her best friends life? Xena won't give up on her....
