Personally, I have long ago tired of Star Trek and no longer care who the better captain is. I have to believe there are others out there like me. So, here’s a more timely fued to resolve – “Xena the Warrior Princess” takes on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”. (The winner goes on to duke it out with the Lynda Carter Wonder Woman!)
Hell, even Xander is beter than that idiot jed that walks around thinking he’s a warrior and a help to Xena.
If we want to get into the battle hardened side of things here … Xena has never had to kill her one true love. For Buffy to run Angel through with the sword at the end of Season 2 was … well … I even cried. Like a baby. sigh
Xena has no emotions and as Buffy says, her emotions are a total asset.
I agree. This topic shouldn’t even be taken seriously until such a time as Xena closes Hades at least six times, as the Hellmouth is much more dangerous than Hades.
The Australian release of the videos has one comment on the back of each tape box. “Chosen to fight, trained to maim and dressed to kill.”
I guess all I’ve done is back up previous statements … but ahhh so what - Buffy rocks.
Surely you mean…
Joxer the Mighty,
He’s really tidy.
Everybody likes him
Because he has a funny grin.
Joxer the Mighty,
He’s very tidy.
Everyone admires him.
He’s so handsome it’s a sin.

Lux Fiat, I believe you’re slightly behind the times. My impression is that Willow is slowly moving to the “other side”. Her new little “witch friend” might very well turn into a love interest.
I’ll disagree with everybody else. Xena could probably defeat Buffy. After all, Xena has been through childbirth, so she’s used to pain! And she’s older so knows more tricks of the trade. And she’s fought with gods before, and with angels and demons, so I believe that her combat experience can match Buffy’s.
Old age and treachery (etc) again? Could be. And I don’t believe that Buffy has fought an actual God. She has of course fought “Angel” (ahem) and demons. So Xena and Buffy might be on the same level, despite Buffy’s numerous apocalypse aversions. However:
Willow vs Gabrielle: Gabrielle may be a cute redhead, but Willow is a cute redhead who adept with magic. Point Willow.
Xander vs Joxer: This should not be a comparison since Xander is actually clever and brave. Point Xander.
Giles vs ?: Does Xena have a mentor? And could he/she possibly be as intelligent, witty, or sexy as Giles (Really, I’ll buy coffee from Anthony Stuart Head anytime.) Point Giles.
Buffy & co are winning, and this is just the core of her gang, not including the later additions. Game, set & match to the Slayer.
Well this was great fun. I might have to revive the Mission: Impossible vs A-team thread and explain why the lack of Cinnamon Carter would forever doom the A-team to inferiority. Or I could try to post in a thread of great import, but Friday seems to be winning out.
My brother went to last year’s San Diego comic/SF/everything else convention, and they had Tony Head signing pictures. Sweet brother of mine (who I still owe many a chocolate chip cookies) stood in line for an hour, and when he got there, told Tony “my sister thinks you’re the sexiest man in the universe. Would you please sign one to her?”
Xena vs. Buffy? Hmm I’d think they’d like each other and hang out together. Compare weapons and all.
Faith vs. Callisto? Even though she’s dead, I’ll go with Callisto. She’s more insane than Faith, especially after this week’s Angel.
Ares vs. Giles? No idea, but I’d like to see Giles in one of Ares’ leather outfits. Rreow.
