This week on XENA: WARRIOR PODCAST, we’re Ringing in the new year with 6x07 “The Rheingold,” the first installment of the show’s most ambitious serialization experiment yet, a three-parter! Vera, Katie, and Livy discuss the story’s roots in Wagner, Norse sagas, and Beowulf - plus Tolkien, probably; director John Fawcett’s experience with creature features and aerial battles; and some confusing quirks in the Dark!Xena timeline. Plus: thirsty nymphs, so many Nordic mullets, I am Grindl, Vera cannot handle the knowledge that Lucy Lawless almost played Galadriel, Gabrielle cannot button her coat, Brunhilda’s heart eyes, lipstick marks, and Xena’s magnificent Valkyrie lewk!
The power, the passion, the podcast!
