Xena: Warrior Princess

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia....... 

 Xena: Warrior Princess is an American fantasy television series filmed on location in New Zealand. The series aired in syndication from September 4, 1995, until June 18, 2001.
 It has been praised by critics for its strong female protagonist and has since acquired a strong cult following, attention in fandom, parody, and academia, and has influenced the direction of other television series.
The series was created in 1995 by writer-director-producer Robert Tapert under his production tag, Renaissance Pictures with later executive producers being R. J. Stewart (who developed the series along with Tapert) and Sam Raimi.

The series narrative follows Xena (played by Lucy Lawless), an infamous warrior on a quest to seek redemption for her past sins against the innocent by using her formidable fighting skills to now help those who are unable to defend themselves. Xena is accompanied by  Gabrielle with formidable fighting skills (played by Renee O'Connor), who during the series changes from a simple farm girl into an Amazon warrior and Xena's comrade-in-arms.

The show is a spin-off of the television series Hercules.......  where Xena was a recurring character originally scheduled to die in her third appearance. Aware that the character of Xena had been very successful among the public, the producers of the series decided to create a spin-off series based on her adventures. Xena was a successful show which has aired in more than 108 countries around the world since 1998.

The Beverly Hillbillies

 The Beverly Hillbillies was originally broadcast on CBS for nine seasons..... from September 26, 1962, to March 23, 1971. It was a well loved program and always placed high in the Neilsen Ratings with in the top 20 for 8 of its 9 year 274 episode run.
 Buddy Ebsen, Irene Ryan, Donna Douglas, Max Baer Jr, Raymond Bailey, Nancy Kulp, Bea Benaderet, Harriet E. MacGibbon and a host of others brought the show to life.
I among many others..... love it to this day.
 It is still in syndication and seen on a daily basis around the world.
I grew up watching the reruns, as many of you did also.

 The episode below has a copy right dispute with the opening song "The Ballad of Jed Clampett and it has been changed so it could be included in The Public Domain.

 There is a very funny song after the opening, about those feuding and fighting Clampett and Drysdale kin folks, that is not in dispute.
It is very-very funny and makes one smile. I
 hope you enjoy it.... as much as we do.
 To me..... it brings back the simpler times of our lives.

                                Thanks for "LIKING" Yesterday Television!
