So flicking through Netflix and I saw in their recently added pile "Xena: Warrior Princess". Well, me and the spouse decided it was time to dust off the 90's and become connoisseurs of exquisite cheese.
The first thing that hit me was the narration in the opening credits. Having recently watched the 5 movie announcers in a limo it made me crack up to no end, because I could picture the announcer sitting there in a fold up chair reading it from a sheet of paper (I'll link to that at the end).
I tell you, this show was a delicious ham and cheese sandwich garnished with nostalgia. From an RPG perspective, this is what I imagine most peoples campaigns are like. "Medieval Europe" in the same was Xena is "Ancient Greece". A horrible mishmash of time frames, pop culture and hammed up to the max with cheesy dialogue and bad writing.
And it was damn amusing, even if for all the "wrong" reasons.
