I love a woman in leather. If she swings a sword and hacks men to
pieces every week, so much the better! Who says violence never
solves anything?! Certainly not Xena, who clubs, stabs, slashes,
hacks, dices, and slices her was through armed men like a buzzsaw
through a marshmallow. Personally, I prefer Xena when she was
working for Ares, but what the Hades.... there's lots of bad guys
to chop to pieces every episode.
If I Could Be Like Xena is a song by
by Marilyn Rucker that seems to embody the essense of what it
might be like to be Xena.
"Wait a minute. Those boots. That leather. Those legs. Xena!" -- Samonius
When she is not kicking tyrant kings' asses, she's brawling with
stupid-looking thugs, petty gods, Amazons, Centaurs, and thieves.
It's a rough life out there, and a girl's gotta do what she's gotta
do to protect herself. Three feet of razor-sharp steel is just the
"You haven't lived 'till you've been gored by Xena." -- Aries' chorus
She can leap houses; she can do back-flips that would make the
best Olympic gymnast green with envy; She's got moves that even
Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee combined never had, and never will;
she's even a match for Hercules! She can slug it out with the
biggest and the meanest, and still look fresh as a daisy for the
next episode. She even sings! Well, sort of.
