Xena On The 100 Greatest Sci-Fi & Fantasy TV Shows List

ImageXena has made it to number 35 in the Sci-Fi online list of the top 100 Sci-Fi/fantasy shows of the last 60 years. Not sure if I agree with what the best episodes were (the comedies) but it's a good writeup. Xena did pave the way for Buffy and the others. There hasn't been another show like it since.

The 100 Greatest Sci-Fi & Fantasy TV Shows

35) Xena: Warrior Princess (1995-2001)

A spin-off from Hercules, villainous Xena became a heroine with her own comedy sidekicks. At its best in the comedy or self-referential episodes (‘The Xena Scrolls’, ‘Déjà Vu All Over Again’) and in its teasing the audience as to the exact nature of Xena and Gabrielle’s relationship, later seasons became a little too serious and it lost its lightness of touch. This fantasy romp paved the way for many late-1990s TV heroines, from Buffy to Alias’s Sydney Bristow.

Xena Softball Shirts - An Update

Following my post yesterday about Creation creating some Xena Softball shirts - In part I said: Creation's design will have a small number on the front. Number 10 (X) has been chosen for very obvious reasons (and for those that don't know why...with Xena everythig happened 10 years before...and of course the Roman numeral for 10 is...X (love that). For Gabrielle, V1 (number 6) has been chosen because...Gabrielle had 6 toes on one foot (we found that out during the Season 1 episode "Dreamworker"

and I speculated that these may be the new uniforms for the softball teams organised by Penny and Regina. This afternoon I received a note from Kim alerting me to something I wasn't aware of about the softball game that was organised and the uniforms:

Penny & Regina created their own shirts via cafepress and the proceeds of those sales went to charity. How utterly cool is that! In addition to the girls making/buying their own shirts, they gave the donation to charity + the $1700 raised. That figure will go up with the auctioning off of the two autographed balls as well.

So I'm guessing they won't be using the Creation shirts for the game come next January :)

Creation Entertainment Xena Softball Shirts

Creation is creating some softball shirts for the convention. I wonder if that idea was inspired by the fans who played for charity during the 2010 Xena Convention. Aussie Penny organised the Amphipolis Vs Potadeia softball game which raised an incredible $1700 for Starship (Amphipolis won). The girls played in the rain. It was coming down hard that day and they still played.

A couple of softballs were autographed by Lucy and Renee and they will be put up for auction by Creation (propably at the 2011 Xena Convention).

Creation are now creating Xena and Gabrielle softball shirts for the convention -- the Amphipolis Warriors and the Poteidaia Bards. Penny did say last February that they were going to continue to play the charity game at conventions so this may be their new uniforms!

Creation's design will have a small number on the front. Number 10 (X) has been chosen for very obvious reasons (and for those that don't know why...with Xena everythig happened 10 years before...and of course the Roman numeral for 10 is...X (love that).

For Gabrielle, V1 (number 6) has been chosen because...Gabrielle had 6 toes on one foot (we found that out during the Season 1 episode "Dreamworker"

I wonder if the shirts are going to have some blue for Xena and some green for Gabrielle or Purple for both. It will be interesting to see.

Penny and the girls will have nifty shirts to wear when they take to the field next year. Let's hope it's not raining when they do!

Renee Directs New Sitcom Are You Kidding Me + Photos


Renee has donned her director's hat for the pilot of a new sitcom "Are You Kidding Me".

You can view behind the scenes images with Renee on the official site and on their official facebook page

Are You Kidding Me is about:

After divorcing her cheating husband, Donna and her son Del moved from NY to LA looking for a fresh start. Ten years later,the only thing she misses of her old life is her best friend Marie.

Marie comes to visit one weekend and soon has Donna out on the town for a drunken night of "old time fun". After reminiscing about how much they miss each other (see clip) Donna goes to bed while Marie sneaks out to Vegas and elopes with the cop they met that night. The next day, after processing the news of the nuptials, Marie informs Donna that all three of her kids are coming in to LA to celebrate her 6th and (hopefully) final marriage. Donna suddenly realizes that her "family" should not be 3000 miles apart and although it's tight quarters, the two families move in together.
