HTLJs can be goofy, and Twankey is there for pure camp . She pops up in another episode or two. Hercules never really delved into as much angst as Xena did, that was something that always gave me a preference for Hercules over Xena along with Gabrielle. I often wished Xena would just dump her, I never warmed to the character in spite of Rene's fine work in the part. Amazon queen, Eli worshiper, soul mate, every addition just seemed more eye rolling. I'd have enjoyed the show more with Joxer as the permanent sidekick.
