This episode features Xena and Gabrielle as we have never seen them before, squabbling, playing 20 questions, teasing each other, having a bath together, dealing with an amorous fan of Xena`s and Gabrielle`s attempts to catch Xena by surprise. There is a lot of humour but also a good story too as Xena manages to defeat a warlord and the giant Gareth, while also inventing kite flying, catching fish with her bare hands and playing matchmaker. Almost every scene either has a memorable line or a moment of visual humour. Some have seen the two villagers Hower and Minya as representation of Xena fans! Either in love or fawning over Xena, in their `I`ll do anything for the Warrior Princess` mode. They are certainly comical characters. This was also a very big favourite for fans of the subtext of the show who enjoyed the bathtub scene and Xena and Gabrielle`s bantering. Not the sort of episode that could be done again really, but after the drama of the Destiny/Quest/Necessary Evil story, this episode shows the range and variety of the show. Excellent.
