3 episodes per disc, not 4! How cool is that? That means less compression and better quality!
Every disc has at least one commentary track on it, which can be just audio or with video (ie. you can see the actors in the recording studio!!)
EVERY episode has a short FEATURETTE you can view that goes behind the scenes with interviews from directors, writers, producers, AND actors! These are incredibly fun. They make each episode feel like a movie.
The extras are unbelievable. The show is outstanding.
NINE discs. Count 'em. NINE.
Buy this DVD.
Ted Raimi as Joxer was at his ultimate best this season.But why stop at Ted,let's go on and mention the others that contributed greatly to this season's success:Alexandra Tydings as Aphrodite,Hudson Leick as Callisto,the late Kevin Smith as Ares,Bruce Campbell as Autolycus and of course its' main stars Rene O'Connor as Gabrielle and everyone's fave warrior babe Lucy Lawless in the title role.And of course there are the unsung heroes such as Joe LoDuca with the fabulous music,the series writers and directors and the unheralded yet just as important New Zealand stunt people,without whose skills the shows would never have looked as good as they did.
Technically speaking the eps look quite clear and crisp.There are five discs this season but contrary to other reviews(which are now more than eight years old)there are NO extras in this new Universal re-release.It is disappointing to be sure,but Anchor Bay owns the rights to those extras,all included in the original release to DVD sets.
This season ended with the now well known cliff hangar of Gabrielle and Hope falling into a fiery pit.Read more ›
Starting out this season with "The Furies", the viewers examine Xena's paternity and issue concerns and questions. We also see Xena's comedic side as she is driven crazy by the Furies and acts most unbecoming of her. She has great comedic timing, which we can appreciate in further episodes such as "Warrior...Priestess...Tramp" in which Lucy plays three different look-alike characters. Included in this season was also "The Bitter Suite", which is a musical journey that explores the pain and healing after the death of Xena's son and her betrayal by Gabrielle. I truly enjoyed this episode because of its uniqueness and that it showcases Lucy amazing singing voice.
I also enjoyed "The Debt" and "The Debt II" because of its complex, yet collective fighting sequence.Read more ›
The various producers and directors comments give excellent and insightful background on what were the intentions behind an episode, the complexities and challenges involved in getting it done, and their perception on whether or not the attempted vision was successful or not.
In addition, the video commentaries by Lucy and Renee are not only enjoyable because of the information the two provide about an episode, but also because of the camraderie between the two actresses. It's obvious that they enjoyed working together, enjoyed the challenges of their characters, and are very proud of the work they've done. They are self-effacing, down-to-earth, and very quick to give credit to the other actors and especially the crew for their efforts in making the show a success.
The additional interviews and commentaries by actors Hudson Leick (Callisto), Ted Raimi (Joxer), and Alexandra Tydings (Aphrodite) are just as interesting and insightful; and the comments all make regarding the late Kevin Smith (Ares) are both genuine and poignant.
This set of DVDs has really set a high standard for the rest of the series' DVD sets. If Season 4, 5, and 6 are as awesome as this set, they can't get them out too soon! This set alone is more than worth the money - it's a MUST HAVE for any Xena fan!
