For about six months in 1997, I was obsessed with Xena. Not like true fans of the day; I had posters or go online to talk about it. I just registered and will come home on Monday afternoon and watch. I would not miss any episode without Joxer in it though. Because when I was fourteen I was in love with Joxer and Gabrielle as a couple and have a very distinct memory of walking from the second viewing of my listening Titanic "My Heart Will Go On" and thinking how perfect this song represented Joxer Gabrielle and love of.
Between that and the bare Gabrielles skipping out of a cave this episode was pretty damn memorable for me. It's probably why it took me so long to seriously rewatch the show because I do not remember things like debt or maternal instincts of next week. I remembered just melts Joxer, Xena and Gabrielle naked doing an incredibly silly battle
Because yes, this is another one of those episodes farce. The ones who run headlong into the silly. Really shows do not do that anymore. Even comedies are reluctant book my show to embrace the farce quite like this. Maybe Glee, another challenge tonally show with moments of true greatness peppered a sea of simple to sub par, could be comparable. Maybe.
It is definitely comparable when it comes to continuity. book my show This is also the second episode in a row where there is no mention of «Rift" is. Xena and Gabrielle are best buds and Xena goes so far as to confess eternal love for Gabrielle after spending an entire day in a magical caused fishing adventure. least the last episode was just something book my show cool about their interactions. warmth There is only two scenes with them-that captures the feeling of intimacy that makes friendship and romance both believable.
The only real suggestion is depending on the episode Gabrielle vain sense of altruism leads to action. It's a neat trick that the show has managed to turn something inherently good (altruism) in such a defect. Gabrielle sees itself as a force of nature. Someone who changes the world for the better. You never really think that could harm others. There is an ugly streak of selfishness under all goodness and massive ego. That is why curse of Venus is just so damned effective.
It's a classic, book my show though largely forged variant WW Jacob's foot monkey. The reason this kind of wish-fulfillment story works so well is because we all have a little bit of an ego. We all like to think that we simply wish to goodness in the world. This foot, or in this case running, designed to knock down a peg us and reveal our hubris.
But never do enough to Gabrielle. Many times in this story wisher is isolated from the world because they knew only to turn and show how incapable it is, in fact, gods.
Zina can not do that. It really gods running around wielding unlimited power. But Venus and Mars, and the whole rest invisible pantheon, the ancient gods with very human characteristics. So instead of crafting a morality play calling back the decision of hubris Gabrielle and emphasize the absolute irony of imperfect god gives power to a mortal to teach that the mortal how imperfect it is.
Because this show, despite book my show the many tirades of Gabrielle, is not about being perfect. It is not about exposing the weaknesses of others. This show is about being a good man, despite his weaknesses.
I love that the central point of the show is not applicable to the gods though. Gabrielle can learn a lesson and poor Joxer can get his nose bloodied in the endless book my show quest to seduce Gabrielle, while still being a complete asshat, but the gods were given little respect. It's such a little thing narrative, but differentiates them from mortals.
Mars really did not learn anything from the first day of accidental connection with Gabrielle over whether or not this is a natural blonde and just restoring forces will be back to being a terribly entertaining sheet. And Venus in Bosomy pink dress, is not generally painted as villainous strokes with Mars, but Sher
