    The writer/creator of The Middleman + Xena: Warrior Princess? Have I died and gone to heaven?

    Include Lucy Lawless and Renee O’Connor in their original, ground breaking roles as Xena and Gabrielle, even if its just in the premier episodes, and I will be one VERY happy hardcore, nutball Xenite!

      That comment makes little sense. How could they do a new Xena series and only include Lucy and Renee in their original roles for only the first episode? Unless the goal is to call the show Middle-aged Xena and have them be the starts, neither could appear in their original roles
