Xena and Hercules are my favorite T.V. shows of all time. I never missed a single episode of Xena: Warrior Princess or Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. I have the Entire 1st Season of Xena on tape including the one with the Hercules introduction of Xena. Xena was a ordinary girl, and then a Warlord named Cortese, went onto her village and destroyed it. Her younger brother Lyceus died while helping Xena fight to save their village. Xena created soldiers from her village to protect their village. After they defeated the Warlord's armies. Xena and her Army started conquering the near-by villages So Cortese Would never try to take their village again, Xena became a Warlord, Killing Men, Women, and Children. She was feared by everyone as "Xena: Warrior Princess" or "Xena: Destroyer of Nations" She entered another village, Xena ordered her Army not to attack til the next day, but Darphus ignored her order and destroyed the village, killing everything in site, Men, Women, and children, She wanted out, because her army betrayed her, Darphus became the new leader, and made Xena go through the Gauntlet, Then she left, Xena and Hercules defeated Darphus and his army. Xena and Hercules went their seperate ways, then Xena saved a life of a girl named Gabrielle. Gabrielle followed Xena everywhere. Then she started turning into "Good" Xena, Now Xena fights against Evil.
