5.0 out of 5 stars You Can't Afford to Miss This One!!
The second part of Season 4 has it all - A trip to India where Xena and Gabrielle find their "way" in life and discover what fans of the series had already guessed that they are destined to be soul mates who will be together forever - a rematch with Alti, Caesar and Pompey and a steady build up to the most gripping episode of Xena so far in "Ides of...

3.0 out of 5 stars Workin' up a sweat with a pregnant leading lady...
OK, it's better than I thought it would be, but there's a couple of real clunkers in here. Rob Tapert and the writers come up with some real inventive storylines, and LL turns in some great performances, but we can't get round the fact that the Warrior Princess is very pregnant throughout. Which is fine - very refreshing, in fact - and fits with the groundbreaking ethos...

The second part of Season 4 has it all - A trip to India where Xena and Gabrielle find their "way" in life and discover what fans of the series had already guessed that they are destined to be soul mates who will be together forever - a rematch with Alti, Caesar and Pompey and a steady build up to the most gripping episode of Xena so far in "Ides of March" - Can Xena and Gabrielle escape the fate Alti predicted for them, crucifixion at the hands of the Romans - not if a recently deceased old enemy (in a surprise reappearance) has anything to do with it!! - These eleven episodes are an emotional rollercoaster ride from beginning to end which see Xena and Gabrielle's relationship transcend friendship and even death itself!

5.0 out of 5 stars A sensational finale to six years of the warrior princess., 7 Jun 2002
By A Customer
This promises to be perhaps the most special box set ever, and shows how much Xena and Gabrielle have evolved. Packed with emotion, a little humour and the deeper meaning that every Xena episode has,it is packed with surprises. It promises to bring tears to the eyes of anyone loyal to the show, and gives the brief storyline to a first time viewer, showing the true depth of the characters' unconditional love for each other, and deep understanding. I believe that this is esential for a true Xena fan, and the touching, yet shocking way the show ends brings many emotions and is loyal to everything Xena and Gabrielle stand for.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best series to date!, 8 April 2001
Having watched the previous two series, where we are witness to the development of the relationship between Gabby and Xena, this series takes their relationship a little further into reality. As the watchers of this realistic and heart rending series, we see how the lies and secrets our hero's tell reveal the cracks in what is thought to be the perfect friendship. Throughout other series the portayal of their relationship is paramount and this series is no different, however it is done in such a way that you cant help taking sides.
The series is not without a huge serving of humour, with regulars such as Joxer and Ares delivering great mounds of laughter. However it is felt that this injection of humour is much needed in light of the much darker nature of the storyline.
The latter part of the box set sees the return of Joxer where we are treated to the fact that he has not only one identical brother but two (One which we see in this series, and the promise of seeing the other in series to come). However has we have witnessed before there are, contrary to belief, more than one Xena. Possibly the funniest episodes is where in 'Warrior, Priestess, Tramp' we are introduced to another Xena lookalike - A Hestian Virgin! Lucy Lawless treats us to even more of her talents - excellent!
A well rounded introduction to the third series - can't wait for Part two of this very revealling series!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent start, weak middle, but a brilliant conlusion, 14 April 2001
The opening episode of this box set concludes the arc of the Xena and Gabby hate/hate relationship. However it is done with a difference 'The Bitter Suite' is Xena's first ever musical episode. A lavish musical-fantasy set against the backdrop of a tarrot card dreamworld called Illusia. An excellent start to the box set.
The rest of the box set is pretty average compared to Part 1 of series 3, the usual laughs and jokes are still to be had, however the episodes seem to lack their usual Xena punch.
However, that said there are a few episodes where the usual standard of script and acting wins out. In episodes like 'One against an army', 'Forget me not' and 'Tsunani' we witness issues of friendship, courage, love and the greater good being shown in true Xena style.
Producers must have been aware of the fact that the latter part of series 3 was not up to its usual excellent standard, and in an attempt to save the very best for last - delivered a two part story with the return of Hope and Callisto. 'Sacrific' and 'Sacrific Part 2' are the grand finale, showing the battle between good and evil in superb style. Without wishing to ruin the ending we see Gabby re-confirm her love and friendship by sacrificing her own life for that of her good friend Xena (hence the title).
An excellent conclusion to a series that started off brilliantly, had its problems in the middle but came back fighting, leaving the watcher desparate for answers to the 'will she, wont she live' Gabby senerio, but also for the release of season 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of the best the show has to offer., 19 Jun 2001
The first half of season 4 of Xena contains some of the best episodes of the entire shows run. The opening two-parter 'Adventures in the Sin Trade' is a beautifully shot episode with Xena trying to overcome her friends 'death'. 'A Family Affair' features a touching moment when xena is reunited with Gabrielle. Other highlights are 'Locked up and Tied Down', where Xena has to pay for past crimes, and 'Daughter of Pomira' which features the return of The Horde from season one. The 'comedy' episodes are a joy too with 'key to the Kingdom' featuring Meg and Joxer, and 'A tale of 2 Muses' where Autolycus brings dancing to a town where it is banned. All in all a satisfying purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars BACK FROM THE DEAD!, 27 Oct 2001
By 
E R Slaughter (Brighton, United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
After the shocker at the end of series four it's up to Eli to try and bring back our two heroines. Meanwhile in the Underworld a battle of good and evil ensues involving a familiar face which inevitably ends with Xena and Gabrielle being brought back to the world of the living.
With Xena's pregnany (and a rather shocking father)and new weapons for both women they come up against some of their meanest enemies yet after they find out that Xena's unborn child is set to bring about the end of the Gods. A fantastic opening for the fifth season.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest TV shows. Severely under-rated in the UK, 27 Jun 2001
By A Customer
The first half of this series, as another review mentioned is one of the best in this epic programme.
Sadly the show never really took off in the UK because it was picked up by Channel 5 with its lack of viewers. In America the ratings prove the quality of the show with it being the no. programme across the continent.
If you want an excellent and entertaining piece of TV history make sure you don't miss the Warrior Princess at her best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Xena At Her Best!, 16 July 2002
By 
E. A. Redfearn "eredfearn2" (Middlesbrough) - See all my reviews
(TOP 1000 REVIEWER)    (VINE VOICE)    (REAL NAME)   
Season Six turned out to be the last series Lucy Lawless ever made of Xena, and she doesnt disappoint. Some great stories overall, including The Rhinegold (shades of Norse Mythology). The Xena series has come along way over the years, and like all good things, has to come to an end sometime. And it certainly does with a bang, but I wont reveal here what actually happens to Xena in the final episodes. This box set is of course the first half of the final season, and there is much to admire here. If you are a die-hard Xena fan, then go for it. By the way, just want to mention that Gabrielle is good as ever, played by the lovely Renee O'Connor. Go for the DVD version for sound and picture is definetly superior.
