Did You Know?


Michel Hurst, who played Nigel, was the actor who usually played the part of Charon. Due to time restrictions filming the episode, he was not able to play Charon for this story. The actor who replaced him was a friend of his who was very careful to play the part in the same style, including the voice mimicking the voice of classic comedic actor Jimmy Durante. See more »

The funniest thing I've ever seen
22 September 2007 | by xenatorresSee all my reviews

No one does comedy like "Xena". "You Are There" is arguably one of the most imaginative and fun comical episode of television.

Completely unpredictable and downright wacky, it doesn't matter how many times I watch this episode, I laugh the entire way through.

The cast of "Xena" is incredibly skilled at drama, but when it comes to comedy, they are unmatched, especially Lawless, Smith and Hurst – who not only guest starred as the investigative reporter, Nigel, but directed as well.

Livia fans will love Wilkinson's main scene in the episode as Eve lets Nigel see her nastier half. I can never watch the scene less than ten times – and it never gets boring or old.

Easily the top comedic episode of "Xena".
