Ulysses-Xena and Gabrielle must help Ulysses, King of Ithica, who is trying to return to his island homeland after ten years away, but the god of the sea, Poseidon, doesn't make it easy.
Xena and Gabrielle become apart of the great mythical story of Ulysses, King of Ithica. John D'Aquino gives a good performance as the well known character. We are also introduced to Poisedon, the God of Sea. His all CGI, but that doesn't mean the character isn't a good one!!! It's funny watching Gabrielle getting sea sickness, but the real story is Xena and Ulysses growing feelings toward each other. Both Lucy and John have some good chemistry. You almost want them to be together but once his wife Penelope is alive, Xena pushes him away for good reason. It's kind of sad watching her make him feel bad, but it was for his own good. It's also funny how Xena is the one who helps Ulysses stretch the bow and she never tells him. Xena never gets the thanks she deserves, argh!!! All in All, a good episode with nice version to an old tale!!!
