06: 1x11-12 "The Black Wolf" & "Beware Greeks Bearing Gifts"

Sing, muses, as we embark upon another epic episode of XENA: WARRIOR PODCAST! This week Vera, Katie, and Livy partake in some whiskey and tackle the Robin Hood-style swashbuckler 1x11, “The Black Wolf,” in which Salmoneus pays homage to Xena’s amazing legs, Gabrielle accessorizes with a fine chakram hat, and Xena teaches people life lessons by dropping them out of trees (as you do). Then we move on to 1x12, “Beware Greeks Bearing Gifts,” an ambitious first outing for one of the show’s most talented directors. We discuss TJ Scott’s unique visual style, the transgressive depiction of Helen of Troy, and the reintroduction of Gabrielle’s greatest BFOTW, Perdicas, so lovable despite looking exactly like Donny Osmond ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
