Let’s just stop and appreciate Xena for a minute.
First of all, just to get it out of the way, Lucy Lawless is fucking kickass and womanly and hot and I fucking love her as Xena.
Now, on to the reason for this post.
That woman on the left is Helen of Troy. Helen. The woman so beautiful and desirable two men started a war over her. She’s a woman of colour. She’s got gorgeous curly-ass hair, and she’s not slathered over with makeup to look like Betty Boop. She’s fucking gorgeous. She’s a minor character, yet she’s well-written enough so that we can sympathise with her.
This show is doing it right.
