After a weekend of self-care and proper adulting, I think I'm ready for another small night of #Kissmatewatches! We'll finish off the two Hercs I wasn't able to get to last time and see how they fare!
#Kissmatewatches Hercules Episode 5: Ares
Ares forms a gang of boys to terrorize the area. Hercules manages to kill the avatar of Ares and tell the boys to go home and think about what they've done.
#Kissmatewatches The best part of this episode is Atalanta played by bodybuilder Cory Everson. She's a blacksmith who wears bikini mail in a village full of women. Her personality is strong and cocky mixed with determination. She's the best side character in this series so far!
#Kissmatewatches Herc is such a sweet himbo. Every time he sees Atalanta, he gets all bashful. He doesn't know whether he's attracted or impressed!
#Kissmatewatches Hercules Episode Six: As Darkness Falls
A centaur steals away a bride from her wedding. Hercules, blinded by a poison, saves her using his wits and fighting skills. It has two myths rolled into it! And the episode sucks for it!
#Kissmatewatches [CW: rape] The myths both involve rape (bride and Herc's wife). The casting choices make both rapists centaurs depicted by a Maori actor! It's super awkward. There's another rapey centaur that gets killed, and the third "good" one who defects is the whitest!
#Kissmatewatches [CW: rape] Then, as the women are safe and the centaur is dead, they all reflect how he wasn't really that bad! He just loved her oh so much that he HAD to kidnap and attempt to rape her!
I saw red. Ares possessed me, or something, because I saw red and violence.
#Kissmatewatches [CW: ableism] Herc is blinded due to poison. He talks of quitting his heroic job as he couldn't possibly continue if this was permanent. His hearing is played up as suddenly his best sense, although it never was before.
The only good thing is it's not focused on.
#Kissmatewatches Honestly, this is the episode worth passing over. The effects don't hold up. The story isn't that good or focused. The side characters are okay at best. Terrible handling of sensitive topics. Anything worth seeing here could be seen in another episode easily.
#Kissmatewatches On that note, I think I'll call it a night. Next time, we'll do much more!

We're starting early with #Kissmatewatches today. We'll be tackling Hercules again, episodes 7, 8, and 9 of season one.
No time like the present, so let's get started!
#Kissmatewatches Herc Episode Seven: Pride Comes Before a Brawl
This episode is mostly about Iolaus proving to himself that he's a good and useful man, even without Herc. There's some men that are pretending to be satyrs (badly), and we meet Nemesis.
#Kissmatewatches It's nice to see a character I love show his abilities. I like these kinds of episodes!
Although, they wrapped it in some toxic masculinity, so that's a downer.
"If you help him now, Herc, Iolaus will hate you." But wouldn't you rather have your friend alive?

Tonight is going to be another quick trip down #Kissmatewatches with Xena episodes! Still season one, with episode seven and eight. Stay tuned!
#Kissmatewatches Xena Episode Seven: Titans
Gabi frees some titans with a chant. Hyperion attacks the humans and threatens to free the rest of his brethren. Gabi and Xena turn them back to stone before he can, thus saving the day.
#Kissmatewatches This was a Gabi-centered episode where she acts a bit more immature than usual. She tries to get Xena to see she's useful and mature by trying to do things on her own, but she always ends up causing more trouble by meddling.

So guess what's up? Another #Kissmatewatches of Xena and Herc, that's what! So strap in your leather and vests, cause here we go!
#Kissmatewatches Xena Episode Five: The Path Not Taken
Xena goes to save a princess to stop a war, but meets an old flame that could ruin her plans. She lies to him, but he sees through her plans at the last moment. The villain kills him as he saves the princess, one act of good.
#Kissmatewatches Let me start off with an aside:
Her kicking the asses of men who dare think they can comment however they want about her? *SWOON*
AND THOSE LEGS! *chef kiss*

We have another #Kissmatewatches tonight with another Xena and Herc showing! I'm looking forward to the campy fun from last night continuing!
#Kissmatewatches Xena Episode Three: Dreamworker
Gabi longs to be a warrior like Xena, but Xena insists she not. Something about maintaining innocence. This catches Morpheus' priests' eye and they kidnap her to be a sacrifice. Xena enters the dream world and rescues her.
#Kissmatewatches Instead of needing """virgins""" to be sacrificed, they use something called blood innocence (shed blood/taking a life). I actually like this change! It's more important whether you've killed someone with your own hands rather than if you've had sex with anyone.

Good Evening, twitters of all genders! I'll be doing a #Kissmatewatches of both Xena: Warrior Princess and Hercules TV shows. We got all six seasons of both and I figure why not write down my thoughts?
#Kissmatewatches I was already told to throw out my knowledge of Greek Myths. I had to nod in agreement over the fact the main character's name is Hercules and not Heracles.

Add in your brand of nerd jokes here.
#Kissmatewatches Episode One: Sins of the Past
Xena was once a conqueror, but her past gives her guilt. She buries her past by literally burying all her armor and weapons. Only to immediately need them later. Oops.

Today on #Kissmatewatches, we're continuing the Resident Evil film series! Written and directed by Paul W S Anderson, we're watching "Resident Evil: Retribution" (2012).
The last one was fun with cheesy writing, so I'm hoping for something similar. Just a nice popcorn flick.
Don't forget this is a double team with AnaMardoll!

#Kissmatewatches I did notice something interesting last movie. Wesker said he needed Alice's blood to become stable with the T Virus. After she was stabbed in the fight, she stabbed him with the same knife. Meaning she stabbed her blood into his brain. I'm hoping he comes back!
