There's been a lot of stuff, both positive and negative, about the Anchor Bay package of Xena on DVD. I've been watching it on a very good quality all-regions player (which has no trouble with other NTSC progs) in the UK and it's frequently awful. The soundtrack (which should be glorious) is disastrously out of synch from time to time (The Titans, Prometheus for example) and picture quality varies from OK to really awful. Don't believe anyone who tells you it's because Series 1 was shot on 16mm film instead of 35mm: believe me, 16mm should look terrific on the small screen. And there's no excuse for the out-of-synch-sound or poor quality DVD encoding.
On the plus side you get loads more extras than the meagre Universal/Playback versions available on this side of the pond, but at least the Universal DVD's are watchable.
A great series and good package spoiled by very poor quality control.

I was thoroughly disappointed to find that these DVD's did not include closed captions nor subtitles. I have enjoyed watching the various Xena episodes over the years on TV where the CC's were broadcast. It's unfortunate that in the year 2003, when the technology is readily available, that so little regard is given the paying customer. I am one of the millions of hearing impaired persons that like to buy and view DVD's. I would certainly 'not' purchase any DVD in the future that did not contain either closed captions or subtitles. (At least foreign films, with non-English dialogue allow the viewer the opportunity of reading English subtitles.) If they want to sell more DVD's and be a 'responsible' company, then they need to do it 'right'.

Format: DVD
"In a time of ancient gods, warlords, and kings, a land in turmoil cried out for a hero. She was Xena, a mighty princess forged in the heat of battle. The power. The passion. The danger. Her courage will change the world."
If you don't recognize the above, you've been in a distant land since at least 1995, and this review isn't really for you. But you should buy this collection immediately, because you're in for an entirely novel treat.
Xena: Warrior Princess is a spin-off series from "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys", which followed 5 "Action Pack" (don't ask) Hercules movies. The Hercules and Xena stories are revisionist tales of antiquity. Most of the names are right ("Hercules" instead of "Herakles", and the Roman "Cupid" instead of Greek "Eros" are notable exceptions), but anachronisms abound. We first see Xena sitting on her horse, complete with stirrups (1000 years before their invention) and saddle horn (2000 years early). Xena's sword is bronze, but steel implements abound in an era when Indian Wootz steel was a commodity valued above gold. The wet countryside of New Zealand doubles for the dry Mediterranean clime of Greece. And barbarian warriors look suspiciously like Maori. Obviously the emphasis is on entertainment rather than historical accuracy. It's a good thing, too, because the entertainment value is outstanding.
The premise of the series is that Xena was a teenager living in the Greek village of Amphipolis when it was attacked. She rallied her neighbors to mount a successful defense. Then she took the surrounding towns to have a defensive perimeter. One thing led to another, and Xena was a warlord terrorizing the countryside. But, true to her original intent, she spared defenseless women and children.

I'm deaf and this DVD set didnt have caption or subtitles. I've been a hardcore nutball Xena fan from day one,and NONE of the VHS or DVD tapes have yet to have caption or anything of the sort. It is disappointing, I bought a 90 dollar DVD set, just to find out it wasnt captioned, and sent it back to only get 30% of what I paid for it. Many hardcore...and deaf, xena fans just like myself were disappointed, really disappointed, and season 2 shows no different. For you deaf people out there, do NOT get it! Unless you like just watching the action and not understanding or being able to see Xena's wisdom in caption, or subtitle, just like the hearing people can.

Format: DVD
I enjoy Hercules and Xena very much BUT, there are a few things that really bugged the heck out of me on Xena's Season One.
First off, like previous reviews have stated, about half way through two of the episodes, the voices start to get out of hand and don't match the lip movements. If there are things I cannot stand it's bad dubbing. I don't think Anchor Bay should have any excuse for this "mishap".
Another thing, is the picture can get grainy in some parts, especially in some of the earlier episodes. But, in part, I do blame the type of film they were using during part of this season.
Lastly, there are no captions or subtitles. I was sitting here thinking "What the heck! This is the ONLY thing I own on VHS or DVD that does not have captions!" I'm grateful Anchor Bay released this, but my word, what were they thinking! I know several people who would have a fit over this one reason.
These are the type of things that are NOT easily ignorable. I've got every reason to get my money back from Best Buy until Anchor Bay releases newer editions with at least the voice problem fixed. Like I said, I'm grateful, but let's get it together, OK?
I can only hope that that Xena's Season Two will be improved and that Hercules' Season One is really worth my money.
