The gay president is dating the sadistic princess
The series was created in 1995 by writer-director-producer Robert Tapert under his production tag, Renaissance Pictures with executive producers being R. Stewart (who developed the series along with Tapert) and Sam Raimi.The series narrative follows Xena (played by Lucy Lawless), an infamous warrior on a quest to seek redemption for her past sins against the innocent by using her formidable fighting skills to now help those who are unable to defend themselves.Historical figures and events from a number of different historical eras and myths make numerous appearances, and the main characters are often credited with resolving important historical situations.These include an encounter with Homer before he was famous, in which Gabrielle encourages his storytelling aspirations; and the capture of Caesar by pirates, with Xena cast as the pirate leader.the saga began with three episodes in Hercules where Xena was a recurring character originally scheduled to die in her third appearance.Aware that the character of Xena had been very successful among the public, the producers of the series decided to create a spin-off series based on her adventures.In seasons four and five, the Greek people gradually transfer their faith from the Greek Gods to the "God of Love" over a period of about 25 years, and as their power fades, the Greek Gods are almost all killed off in a climactic battle.
Each god, or set of gods, controls a different part of the world, and (in the show) survives only while people believe in it.
The Ancient Greece depicted in the show is largely derived from historical locations and customs, modifying known places and events – battles, trading routes, towns, and so on – to generate an attractive fictional world.
The settlements are presented as a mixture of walled villages and rural hamlets set in a lush green, mountainous landscape.
Mythological and supernatural locations are presented as equally real, physical places, often accessed through physical portals hidden in the landscape such as lakes and caves.
They include the Elysian Fields, Tartarus, the River Styx, Valhalla, Heaven and Hell.
