For Xena, EVERYTHING happened ten years ago. She led her village against that jerkface, but she was also having her son and already an established warlord. She was with Borias but also Caesar. EVERYTHING HAPPENED TEN YEARS AGO.

I mean, I love this show so I can look past it. (Also the fact that Gabrielle was at Troy but also met Homer.) (And that Xena saves Isaac, knows David, but somehow gives Mary a donkey to ride to Bethlehem.)

And I somehow never managed to watch the last two seasons even though I've owned the entire series on DVD for years. ETA: on rewatch, I realize that my least favorite eps are the ones where Xena&Gabrielle interact with biblical figures. It throws me completely out of the story.

Also: where the hell is this show set, that they meet all these people?

ETA take 2: how long is the first season? Perdicas has time to stop being a farmer, learn to fight, and become a mercenary. It's longer than 9 months because Ephiny has time to carry a baby to term. Except, that baby is half horse, so is her pregnancy longer? This show makes ZERO SENSE but I LOVE it.

Several of the things you mentioned are part of why I think I lost my love for the show. Some of the story lines were horrible!

And I never did like Gabrielle (always seemed to be whining about something), but I loved Ares though.

Kevin Smith was obviously having SO MUCH FUN as Ares.

I'm mostly meh about Gabrielle. As to the storylines... I'm just wondering if the writers ever talked about the timeline AT ALL.
