But there are some episodes that make allot more sense if you shift there orders. The most glaring one being in season 3 with Dirty Half Dozen and the Deliverer. Take DHD and shove it somewhere after Gab's Hope or even Chin and suddenly you feel allot better about the whole episode. Again in season 2, move a few of those heavy action episodes from the end to the middle of the season so Xena is popping from one body to another and it feels better too.
We also had cases of actors changing and let's face it: that can't be helped or fixed. We had what? Three Hades? Four or five Zeus'? Two Solons? For me, Zeus was the worst and to this day I see Anthony Quinn from the action pack as Zeus.
And let's not forget 10 yrs ago! Would it have killed them to say 12 or 15 at some point just to give us a time reference? Or maybe just a blurb of a line at the beginning: "Wow that boat ride from Chin sure was long," as they arrive in Jappa. At least then we could put Xena's past in order instead of relying on whether or not Xena's legs are broken and if she looks pregnant or not.
And I haven't brought up this issues from Hercules and Young Hercules. Sometimes it's just easier to say Herc got hit in the head by a Hydra too many times, because let's face it there are issues there too. Big ones. And of course there is Soul Possession which is a huge case of YAXI's and a reason why writers shouldn't try to make an episode to fill a gab from an earlier season.
Other thoughts? Other cases I left out?
