I asked about your favourite Xena Warrior Princess episodes, here’s a vote for One Against an Army.

For me, it would still have to be “One Against an Army. Though “Adventures in the Sin Trade, part 1” comes close to it and was important in Xena’s development, I missed Gabrielle. That is what puts OAAA over the top for me.
And why this episode? It started out looking like a bit of fluff, and the situation got steadily worse and more serious. By the battle scene, I was more than ready for the release. The climax was stunning, and Xena was heroic.
It really was a classic. The writing was a lesson in plot advancement to aspiring writers. The sublime incidental music pulled the viewer into each emotional turn. And the acting was outstanding — which of course, I expect every week.
