Wiki

Xena: Warrior Princess is an American television cult series, a supernatural fantasy adventure that aired from September 4, 1995 until May 21, 2001.[1] The series was created in 1995 by writer-director-producer Robert Tapert under his production tag, Renaissance Pictures with later co-executive producers being John Schulian, R. J. Stewart and Sam Raimi. The series narrative follows Xena (played by Lucy Lawless), a warrior in a quest to seek redemption for her past sins as a ruthless warlord by using her formidable fighting skills to help people. Xena is accompanied by Gabrielle (played by Renee O'Connor), who during the series changes from a simple farm girl into an amazon warrior and Xena's greatest ally; her initial naïveté helps to balance Xena and assists her in recognizing and pursuing the "greater good".
 
The show is a spin-off of the television series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys;[2] in fact, the saga began with three episodes in Hercules where Xena was a recurring character originally scheduled to die in her third appearance. Aware that the character of Xena had been very successful among the public, the producers of the series decided to create a spin-off series based on her adventures. Xena was a successful show which has aired in more than 108 countries around the world since 1998, ranked #10 on TV Guide's Top 30 Cult TV Shows of All Time[3] and #100 on Bravo's 100 Greatest TV Characters.[4] Xena's success has led to hundreds of tie-in products, including, comics, books, video games and conventions, realized annually since 1998 in Pasadena, California and London.[5]
The series has received attention in fandom (including fan films), parody, and academia, and has influenced the direction of other television series.[6]

Quick Tip by . December 15, 2010
Xena, much like its big brother Hercules, was a highly entertaining series. I started losing interest with the program when it started taking itself a bit too seriously, but overal it was a fun ride.
