  • Xena Should Sue Part One

    Valhalley of the Dolls Part One is a somewhat disappointing opening to the season, where the sisters act like they've all been sucked into Xena: Warrior Princess.

    The episode has the sisters dressing up in weird outfits to save Leo from three mythical Valkyries, who are keeping him as a prisoner/gladiator on the land of Valhalla. Meanwhile, Phoebe discovers a new power.

    This episode suffers from the fact that everything is so dragged out, much like the rest of the season, and Drew Fuller still can't act his way out of a paper bag! His terrible performance as Chris really drags down the character and you can't wait until he's off screen. The whole gladiator storyline could have worked but sadly, in the hands of Brad Kern, it just falls to pieces, with some sloppy reasoning behind Chris' "vanquishing" of Leo last season. Pop rock band Smash Mouth also have a small, pointless cameo. Like season five's opening two-parter, "A Witch's Tail", this could have easily been a normal one-hour episode but sadly, it just falls flat when stretched out to two hours.
