Jamie Lee’s Pick
It’s legendary to a specific bracket of nerds and most of them are male, or Sam Raimi enthusiasts. It’s even better if you’ve also got the myth fever. Xena is packed to the gills with hot chicks, bitchin’ action sequences, and slapstick humor.
This isn’t the only thing we remember from Xena, or is it?
I remember my first time watching Xena. It was a rainy afternoon and I didn’t have anything else to do. There were a few back-to-back episodes on, and this being the time we still had use for TV Guides (and me being a lazy 12-year-old), I had no clue what I was watching or what to expect, but I did know that I had never seen a girl beat some ass like that. And yes, Lucy Lawless did give me a few strange tingly feelings! Plus, the Greek Gods are total badasses in their own right here, stirring up trouble and being generally awesome.
Xena is the perfect blend of fantasy, hardcore ass-kicking and Lucy Lawless in revealing outfits. If you’re looking for a little something that provides just enough whimsy and lightness to be fun, while also providing fairly solid storylines and the kind of drama that men aren’t ashamed to admit enjoying. And can we get a holla for Ted Raimi as Joxer? Anyone? No? OK then, just me.
With all his talk about glistening man parts, we can’t understand why there’s no mention in NoFaceNorm’s piece of Lena Headey…
