Xena: Warrior Princess

Xena: Warrior Princess
Rob Tapert etc

So I finally watched the final Xena-episode.  I’ve been putting it off for a few months, because I didn’t want it to end.  But I guess it was time, and so I can only remove my hat for the greatest TV series that ever there was.  
Yes, it has its share of silly filler material, but underneath is a truly epic story of loss, despair, sorrow and all those big wholesome emotions a truly epic story needs.  All told with great style and panache and intelligent referencing to historical myth as well as itself. Never fearing to step into the meta-level, never with a patronizing attitude towards its audience.  
I shall miss you, Xena. Until I watch the DVD commentaries.


Tubing: True Blood

So I finished True Blood, in a manner of speaking.
  • S1: Boring.  Vampires are stupid. Vampire bill is the worst actor ever.
  • S2-3: Nailbiting suspense. Vampires are still stupid.
  • S4: Bloody stupid vampire-and-wicca-nonsense.
  • S5: Yeah, yeah, respect the autharitah, yadda yadda. Zzzzz…
  • S6: If you thought S4 was stoopid…
  • S7: OMG WHAT IS THIS CRAP?? I’m outta here!


What to watch: Season 1 – Season 3.
