The subtext is text this week on XENA: WARRIOR PODCAST. Vera, Katie, and Livy let it all hang out in 2x15 "A Day in the Life." We discuss this beloved episode's break from formula: its handheld camerawork, fearlessly goofball performances, and self-referential dialogue creating a new level of intimacy not only between Xena and Gabrielle -- and my goodness what a level of intimacy that is!! -- but also between the audience and the show itself. That's why this ep is the G.O.A.T. (greatest of all time)!!! Plus: the male gaze as it applies to hot tubs and hair flips, relationship advice for Minya, Vera's favorite goon returns from the dead (sort of), and Xena's completely unforgivable choice of toilet paper -- that's a DEALBREAKER, ladies!
The power, the passion, the podcast!
