SUMMER TV - All the New Shows: What Scores, What Bores
"Ripsnoter: Lucy Lawless, the fomidable Xena"
Xena: Warrior Princess
Premieres: 7:30 pm, Channel 10
Concept: Spin-off series from Hercules in which Xena, warrior
Princess, kitted out in breastplate and thigh boots, uses her
formidable martial arts skills to fight the forces of evil.
Verdict: Rollicking good fun as Xena, like Hercules, encounters
all manner of monsters and bad guys in the lush forests of a
mythical never-never land. The lavist sets and costumes make it
easy to get swept into this fantasy world no matter how old
you are. Ripsnorting adventure TV
