There are few things that Xena: Warrior Princess did not tackle, but the one that I wish they did? Make Xena and Gabrielle a codified couple. I mean, yeah, as far as Lucy and Renee go, their characters were married, and sure, there was that last passionate kiss in the series finale, but come on. It was obvious it was more than just a close friendship, even early on, and I feel like somewhere after Season Three would have been a great way of introducing it. This is literally the only reason I would want a reboot: to show their relationship evolving from friendship to romantic love.
There’s really not much more to say, honestly. Plus, it’s late, and I have to find a paper to do an abstract on, so … I guess I should be a good little student and hop off here. Wish me microbes!
