There was a letter to the editor in Issue 88(April 2004) asking about Autolycus and women. I am surprised you didn't refer the person to the Hercules: The Legendary Journeys episode in the sixth season HERCULES, TRAMPS AND THIEVES in which Autolycus' wife Luscious Deluxe, played by Traci Elizabeth Lords is introduced to the Herc/Xenaverse.
Best Buy DVDs

Subject: Hercules season 3 DVD questions
I pestered you a few months back about the Xena Season Three DVD set. Now I have a silly question about the recent Hercules Season Three set...
Do you know if this set has a "Best Buy exclusive bonus" version? Every Xena and Herc DVD set so far has had a variant version with bonus content ... but I can't find any evidence of a variant version of Herc S3. Does it exist?
And, if they didn't make a bonus version of this set ... does that mean they've stopped making bonus versions for good? That none of the rest of the releases will have Best Buy exclusives?
Best Buy has a contract for extra content for each season of Xena and Hercules. They will continue that to the end of the series.
BITTER SUITE On DVD

I have a question about the Xena DVD BITTER SUITE. Did they change the ending? I don't remember any dialog after the last song, just them plunging down into the water again and coming out the other side on the lake. This doesn't seem to happen. Is my memory cheating or did they change the ending?
And the beginning. I recall only Xena riding into the temple. I don''t recall Ares and Callisto manipulating Xena and Gabrielle. But again, maybe memory cheats. I have listened to the last song in the cd and without music maybe I imagined it differently from how it happened.
You remember incorrectly. Ares and Callisto manipulate Xena and Gabrielle into turning on each other in the beginning and Xena and Gabrielle have dialogue while rolling around together in the surf.
Michelle Yeoh and Kill Bill Vol. 1

Hey, there. I know you used to have a Michelle Yeoh connection at Whoosh, but just wondered if you'd seen Kill Bill Vol. 2 yet.
Tell me that wasn't Tarantino (well-known Yeoh fanatic) paying homage to Michelle Yeoh's dangerous stunt in that flick she did with Jackie Chan (a title that is completely escaping me at the moment). You know, the one where she drove a motorcyle onto a moving train.
That was indeed a reference to Chan and Yeoh's film Police Story 3: Supercop, released in the United States as Supercop.
Eventually, when I have time (heh heh), I will add a Yeoh section to the Films area and include some other Hong Kong coverage. I want to eventually have a Govinda, Yeoh, and Godzilla section in the film area. Wish me luck!
