Change of Xenary
I needed a break from all the sword & sandal films so I switched back to Xena for season three this evening. Watched the episode King of Assassins in which we learn that Joxer has a brother who while looking like the slightly klutzy wannabe warrior, is actually a deadly assassin. People end up getting them confused of course. This is one of the episodes played mostly for laughs and it not only co-stars Bruce Campbell as Autolycus, but Campbell directed as well. A lot of nice comedic bits for Renee O'Connor as Gabrielle tries to handle the situation by thinking 'what would Xena do', with far less successful results than the warrior princess usually gets.
