Cast Edit

Background information and notes Edit

  • The sequence in which Xena fights the giant Gareth was taken from the deleted fourth act of The Giant Killer.
  • Lucy Lawless and Robert Tapert announced their engagement just before putting the episode "A Day In The Life" Together. As an inside joke, when Hower asks Gabrielle "Has Xena ever thought of settling down and getting married?" Robert Tapert's screen credit appears.

Continuity and mistakes Edit

  • During the chase scene between Gareth and Xena, she is relying on the bad weather to defeat Gareth, however, in most of the shots the sky has no hint of a cloud in it.

Disclaimer Edit

  • No Slippery Eels were harmed during the production of this motion picture despite their reputation as a fine delicacy in select cultures of the known world.
