Herc and Xena were unintentionally campy?  I always thought with the Raimi's in charge that camp was the order of the day.
There is no overkill.

Only "Open fire" and "I need to reload."

Hercules was a good show.  Xena was trash, though.

I think Hercules got campy later in the show..and yes much of Xena was campy. But the earlier Hercules episodes? No. Unfortunately the monster effects weren't very good early in the series, but I preferred the earlier episodes quite a bit.

Actually enjoyed Xena.  Granted, most of the time it was for the almost nudity, but there were some good stories out there.

I didn't care for either Hercules or Xena. Lucy Lawless looked off in the role, I could never put my finger on it until I saw her on Battlestar Galactica. Turns out it was the hair.
Power corrupts.
Absolute power is kinda neat.

Seriously, how can this forum system not have a +1 or +karma system or whatever?  That giraffe has earned it.
It was voted that, due to thin skins and claims of abuse, the Karma system was to be disabled.

Ah, that does suddenly sound like a reasonable view. No karma for you, giraffe.

That's okay. I mostly subsist on salads. :)
