Xena Online: The Return
SITE NEWS—A little more than nine years ago I started out with a vision of creating a website based on the syndicated series Xena: Warrior Princess starring Lucy Lawless. It became a passion and by the time the series ended in June 2001, Xena Online was one of the most popular fan sites for the show. Thousands of images, hundreds of sound and video clips, magazine scans and more filled more than 100 pages of content. I kept the website live for a number of years after the show ended. But in 2014, I shut it down. I saw no reason to keep it going.
But in early 2018, I started thinking about the show, and I started watching it. Hulu makes it easy to watch—no hassle of the DVDs. And the show does air in the U.S. on the Heroes and Icons digi-channel. H & I also airs Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.
I started thinking more recently why not re-create the website with episode recaps mixed in with information about the episodes, etc. Lucky for me—I have a backup of the old site which means I can get access to some of my old content such as images, episode guides, the DVD guide, images and the magazine scans. The one thing I won’t return to the website are the hundreds of audio and sound clips.
I hope you stay with me as I journey through the series one episode at a time. Note, I’ll post a bare bones episode guide for both shows over the next few weeks. Then, as I do episode recaps I’ll share them on the website’s Facebook page. I’ll re-charge the Twitter account too.
