What to watch on TV? Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena Warrior Princess!

Herc and IolusWhat to watch on TV?  Hercules: The Legendary Journeys!

A family  member recently got into the Xena.  Joxer the Mighty is pretty funny, LOL!  I didn’t know the Ted Raimi wrote that!  Very talented family, what with Ted and Sam Raimi!

Back in the olden days of 1995 (just 18 years ago), I used to watch Hercules.  Back then, my favorite shows included ASS KICKING!  Oh the violence!  Just like when the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV show premiered in 1997, lots and lots of ass kicking.  This trend continued with other shows I like, such as Xena Warrior Princess and Angel.Xena Gabby

I’m not a violent person.  But I do like a lot of ACTION when I watch a TV show.  So I am drawn to shows like Hercules, Xena, Buffy and Angel.

I probably haven’t watched Hercules since the season finale in 1999, but I did continue to watch Xena until 2001.

Last night, I decided to set up a “wired” connection on my LG Smart BluRay player.  I had not used it via “wireless” before because of the bad connection.  So I finally hooked it directly to my Uverse set top box via ethernet cable and it The Gangworked like a charm.  Bye, bye bad connection!  Hello great connection!

So last night I had a Hercules Festival.  I started watching the Season 1 episodes until 4AM this morning.  I had forgotten something I did with Hercules and Xena until last night.

This is CORNY, but I choreograph dances to TV show opening credits.  I had forgotten the dance I made up for Hercules until last night.  It’s just a real goofy thing that I do, Herc Montagebeing a dancer, but I make up steps to opening credits on shows.

I remembered the silly dance I made up for Hercules and did it last night.  I have one for Xena, Buffy and many other shows.

God forbid anyone see them but me, unless I get drunk and show my family LOL.

Any-who!  If you have never seen Hercules or Xena, check them out on Netflix or Hulu and start with Season 1, Episode 1.

Xena1Both are great action shows with lots of ass kicking, sex, belly dance costumes, drama!  Great music score by Joseph LoDuca as well!!!!

You will be ENTERTAINED!
