Dirty Little Secret

06.10.2011



 
 
 
 
Question of the Week
 
"If you could jump into a time travel machine and it takes you back to when you were a kid, what would your tv be playing then?"
 
 
 
Much like my taste in the books I read now, back when I was a kid I always liked watching shows that had a female lead kicking butt!
Such as Xena.
 

I mean, she's a warrior princess who fights evil, how cool is that! She's strong and has that awesome outfit. I wasn't much of a girly-girl as a kid, nor am I now, so Xena was the perfect show for me. I have watched a few episodes of it recently with re-runs on and it isn't as great as I quite remember it but that is always the way isn't it.

I used to watch Xena, too. Back then, I really wanted to be like her. I can still remember standing in front of the mirror, somewhat frustrated, trying to get my hair to look like hers. You know, with how the sides are? That was probably around my middle school/high school days. I went a little further back in my Dirty Little Secret.

I never really got into Xena - but I got into the male version....what was it called??? Was it Hercules?

I seriously can't remember what the show was

Amber I @ Awesomesauce said...

I never ever watched this show at all. I always heard about it. But I was usually grounded and not allowed to watch tv to much.lol

Jet said...

Yep it was Hercules Jodie haha I liked that show as well.

*gasp* Amber! I am shocked :P I don't think I was ever grounded before, I was such a well-behaved child, cue the halo lol

Madame D said...

Haha!! I watched that too for a while, got a lil bored with her after a while though. LOL

Nanny said...

I loved Xena, and Hercules, when I was like 13. Like you said, now they seem to lack something.

Andra said...

Lol awesome! I totally forgot about Xena! I used to play Xena with my best friend Alaina, and she always made me be Gabrielle because I was blonde! It made me so mad! ahah

Check out My DLS :D

I think with all the improvements in tv shows now with the fighting effects and camera techniques you can really notice how fake it is in Xena, not really get lost in it.

I used to be blonde as a kid as well so I couldn't be Xena either haha Sigh.

When I was young I used to watch the Young Hercules with Ryan Gosling....It's not quite the same!

VanesMate said...

As soon as I saw your picture I had to yell to my husband and ask him what the name of Kevin Sorbo's character was. I didn't think it was Hercules, but that's what Wikipedia says.
