Ring a bell and flip it out for XENA: WARRIOR PODCAST! This week Vera, Katie, and Livy talk love and war and Law & Order. First it's 2x16 "For Him the Bell Tolls," in which Ted Raimi is way sexier than he has any right to be. We discuss Joxer's self-awareness or lack thereof, Gabrielle's insecurities about being a sidekick, and the delightful introduction of The Californians (a.k.a. Aphrodite and Cupid). Then it's on to (DUNN DUNN) 2x17 "The Execution," the return of washed-up warrior Maleager. We discuss the way this episode's clever plot challenges the audience's loyalties; Xena's favorite coping mechanism, flipping; and why court fandom is the scariest. Galeager Forever!!!
