Goof--The titles of the chapters are shown in correct Greek language, except the fact that the letters "n" and "y" (or "u") are inverted: in Greek alphabet they resemble respectively a "v" and a "u".


Trivia--Almost all scenes are shot with a hand held camera, often held by the director himself, the fellow actor Michael Hurst, who played Iolaus in both "Hercules" and "Xena". This gives the show a taste of a documentary and enhance the sense of intimacy between the heroines, being both Lawless and O'Connor very good friend of Hurst and perfectly at ease with him directing and shooting.


"No Slippery Eels were harmed during the production of this motion picture despite their reputation as a fine delicacy in select cultures of the known world."


[Announcer] "In time of ancient Gods, Warlords and Kings, a land in turmoil cried out for a hero. She was Xena, a mighty princess forged in the heat of battle. The power. The passion. The danger. Her courage will change the world."
