First off, i'd like to thank Rob for answering all these questions!! I really liked this comment about FIN:

"Thus, what came next for Gabrielle was so glorious only Xena could have known that her exit would open the door for Gabrielles ascendancy. "
Very well said, and actually it makes me feel better about the ending! Very nice!

I just finished reading every single answer all in one sitting (should I have done that? ).
Lol, i just did the same
As far as Thank You's, and appreciations, and 's, and go, i can only completely agree with and second everything everyone else has already said. It was a fascinating read (especially being so new to this fandom), gave so many great insights to so many different things, and i'm sure i can only appreciate everything about the series more now, than ever. Thank you for taking the time to answer all those questions so very well.



Edited because it's late and though i tried on the first attempt, i didn't make as much sense as i wanted to...

Hmm. Well, it looks like I'm going to be doing some on- and off-again reading over the next several days ... lots of questions and answers, so little time in which to read them all!

I read Rob's answers all in one sitting. Now i'm going to reread and take my time. Because I think I was so thrilled that he actually answered every question & did not 'pick & choose'..that I need to take the time to reread and enjoy every answer in a more leisurely manner.

I read it all in one setting and I have to say he scored some major points with me.

I may not like the way he ended the series but I find it refreshing to see that he stands strong with his opinion about it.

Very gracious of him to answer all the questions.

I'm sure I have to read it again because I'm sure I oversaw some good points.


Take care

Big thank you to Rob for taking the time to answer all the questions

I came to the show in the last season and was certainly told by my employers their vision of the show so that I can write appropriately for it. Meaning, yes, I was explicitly told by the executive producers, the writing staff and the two lead actors that the characters of Xena and Gabrielle evolved from friends to a lover relationship over the course of the series.

These last few days have been almost surreal - first Rene's interview and then RT answering so many questions!

Thank you very much Mr. Tapert!

Thanks Rob for answering those entire questions!!
The new show sounds interesting; I hope that we can see it in the future. Thats something that I could see Lucy in it and it could be a good opportunity to see old friends from Xena guest staring.

Thank you Rob - I go by the name 'gorgeouslawless' because I think Lucy is absolutely gorgeous but I might have to be 'tremendoustapert' now because that was absolutely tremendous of you to give up your time to answer all our questions - and I bet it was quite a bit of time too. Thanks again and all the best to you, Lucy and family for a wonderful Christmas and New Year.

The questions were posted here in a thread for a week, from Oct. 29 until Nov. 5. That "questions" thread is probably a few pages back now from here.

Then, all the questions were gathered, reviewed and passed on to Rob. Several weeks later, and here we are...tons of answers! We were shocked he answered virtually all of them.
