#4 Xena: Warrior Princess
A cult classic. If you rewatch (or watch for the first time), you’ll find that Cursed is reminiscent of the spirit of Xena: Warrior Princess. Lucy Lawless’ Xena has become an icon for good reason: the show has influenced so many of the fantasy series that have come after. Xena sets off on a quest to atone for her sins. Xena: Warrior Princess is full of spectacular locations, great character dynamics (hello, Xena and Gabrielle!), and awesome fight sequences.
