I've been watching the first season of Hercules: The Legendary Journies lately. And I've been doing it for one reason: the first appearances of Lucy Lawless as Xena.
My wife discovered Xena: Warrior Princess during the show's second or third season and turned me onto it. We fell in love with the cheesy effects (both sound and visual), the corny humor, and... well, Lucy. She's sexy, she's tough, she's smart, she's funny. How can you not be in love with her?
That's why I was thrilled when she appeared in an episode of Battlestar Galactica earlier this season, and it's why I'm even more thrilled that she's been signed on for a ten-episode arc in Season Three.
But even before then, she'll reappear on the show in guest-star capacity in the Cylon-centric episode that airs February 24th. Battle on, Xena.
