XENA is the bestestest!!!

I think Xena is great for everyone and even though Gabrielle and Xena have an intimate relationship doesn't mean it is any different between Cinderella and prince charming. So ya, Xena rules

Great messages
Great role models
age 8+

Great action hero role models for 8 and up.

Fantastic role models, especially for girls interested in action heroes. Violence perpetrated by main characters is generally accompanied by character self-awareness and examination of human values. As another poster pointed out, be sure your child is mature enough to handle action scenes, scenes of war, battle wounds, fantasy vs. reality.

Great role models
Too much violence
Too much sex
