Re: What episode

To me, that sounds like 'The Ring'....but from what I remember Gab wasn't riding a horse in that scene.  Red velvet, makes it Season 6, and 'The Ring' has the scene where Gab is holding Xena's gauntlet, and Xena comes up behind her while bleeding and then they hug.  If it's a music video, maybe they...

Re: Xena or Gabrielle?

I started watching the show because I had a huge crush on Xena after seeing her on the Herc trilogy.  At some point during season 2, my crush transferred from Xena over to Gabrielle...and it pretty much remained with Gab throughout the rest of the show(with the exception of the 2nd half of the 4th s...

Re: ROC On TV!

Sorry for the false alarm folks.  Just checked my DVR recordings, and apparently, HM&M either gave cable companies the wrong schedule, or they simply changed it.  This movie is no longer on the schedule...instead they have the old TV show 'Monk' airing ALL DAY.  Needless to say, I'm pretty irritated...

Interesting thing is, we never actually 'saw' Morpheus in this episode. <br/> <br/> We did see Nathaniel Lee's(the actor) in this e...
