During the 1990’s, there were two fantasy TV shows that drew a tremendous amount of loyal fans – Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, and Xena: Warrior Princess. For me, they weren’t always “appointment television,” in that if they were on, I’d watch them, and if they weren’t, I didn’t.
I mean, certainly you’ve watched them at one point or another – with the cheezee special effects, the mix-and-match mythologies, and the underlying relationship dynamics.
As I said, the show really meant nothing to me, but I know that it’s spurred a ton of fanfic and shipping all over the Internet.
Well, apparently any professional or personal relationships between the shows’ two main stars, Kevin “Hercules” Sorbo and Lucy “Xena” Lawless, doesn’t exist.
It might be because Sorbo has glided towards Trumpism. I mean, take a look at a post like this, from Sorbo’s Twitter account.
Ugh. Sorbo is going with the disputed hypothesis that the terrorists that breached the Capitol on Wednesday were “false flag” terrorists, presuming they were members of the groups Antifa or Black Lives Matter, operating in secret as Trump followers.
Well … Lucy Lawless wasn’t having any discussions down that route.
I think Hercules just got conked in the head by Xena’s flying metal Frisbee disc. Woah.
This could be fun. Hercules fighting Xena? Do their sidekicks Iolaus and Gabrielle get into the battle as well? And is there a role in this for Bruce Campbell? Come on, there HAS to be a role for Bruce Campbell in this. 😀
