Thread: Xena Remake: Excited, or not excited?

    At least the God of War 3 people remembered Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. I always liked it more than Xena. I was too young to care about scantily clad women or the darker story of Xena, I just liked how funny and cool Herc was.

    I want some Kevin Sorbo and Bruce Campbell in this. Sadly, Aeres actor, Kevin Smith, is no longer with us....
    Also Callisto's actress, who's name escapes me. But she's been active in the Xena comunity and I'm sure would show up if they wanted.

    And then there was Young Hercules based off Kevin sorbos. It was Ryan Goslings first show thing. I had a crush on young Herc.

    This show is my childhood. I will show no quarter. If this thing flops I will dissect it like a frog in science class.

    I'm gutted that Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor won't reprise their roles. I don't think forties are that old and they both still look great to me. The actresses they get to play these characters are going to have big shoes to fill.

    Though no shoes will be greater to fill than Kevin Tod Smith's. May the gods have mercy on your soul, successor.

    This sums up my own feelings perfectly. I'm willing to give them a shot, but if this remake is anything less than great I will hunt all those involved down.

    Xena didnt need a remake anyway. The concept of the show isnt what made the show.

    Actually Im having trouble thinking of a show that benefitted from a remake that's actually character based.

    Wouldn't say the original was character-based. The remake took an interesting concept which was let down by bad writing, poor characterisation and rubbish production and made something new and interesting.

    Ah damn. I'm watching Xena now with Mr. Carny and it is campy brilliance.
