Death of the Warrior Princess

Saw the series finale of Xena: Warrior Princess; it’s not quite as logical as I was hoping for, but it was a pretty fitting end for the show. Xena gets to be a suitable bad-ass, there’s a sense of closure for her relationship with Gabrielle and some genuinely emotional scenes throughout. It feels a bit odd, I guess, going all the way to Japan in just the last two hours (after going all the way to Chin and back earlier in the series), but who cares. It was a good enough time that I didn’t manage to get much work done for tonight’s game while the movie was on. So it really kept my attention, which a lot of Xena episodes couldn’t. A lot of atmosphere, some descent pulp fantasy adventure elements and a lot of pretty things to look at.
