Now you can own a genuine piece of the "Xena: Warrior Princess" show. But bring plenty of cash. Items from the beloved cult TV series, which came to a sad end late last month with the death of the title character, are being auctioned off by the producers on the Internet. Some of the prices already fetched: a sword used on the show went for $17,600, a costume worn by Gabrielle (Xena's faithful companion, played by actress Renee O'Connor) brought a winning bid of $16,001.

Anyone familiar with the so-called "Babes Behind Bars" genre knows exactly what to expect: hard-boiled femmes, sneering guards, sadistic wardens, hair-pulling cat fights, lesbian lovers and, of course, the obligatory shower scenes. Or, uh, so we've been told. "Stranger Inside," an HBO telefilm premiering tonight, takes a mostly realistic, uncompromising approach.

"Give it heaps, everybody," called director Garth Maxwell in late August on the Auckland set of the 100th episode of "Xena: Warrior Princess." The star of the series gave a yodel: "Yoo-hoo! We're shooting." That's Lucy, said Renee O'Connor, who plays best friend Gabrielle to Lucy Lawless' Xena. "Lucy's very down-to-earth for the lead of a TV show. She's juggling how to be a mom, a feminist icon and just a good Kiwi all at the same time."

Warrior princesses who vanquish evil never really die. Their resurrection is popping out of a three-tiered cake at a Burbank convention center wearing go-go get-ups and wigs. Xena's back, baby. Her best bud, Gabrielle, too.

Of course, those great fight scenes in TV's "Xena: Warrior Princess" are staged--when Xena and Gabrielle knock the bejabbers out of the bad guys. The camaraderie, though, between the two actresses--Lucy Lawless as Xena and Renee O'Connor as Gabrielle--that just can't be playacting. That's what O'Connor said when she joined us for lunch at The Times during a trip stateside (the syndicated show is shot in New Zealand).

Growing up in the '50s, I longed to be a swashbuckling adventurer like my favorite movie heroes. The problem was back then women didn't get to buckle any swashes. So I couldn't decide whether I wanted to be Errol Flynn or marry him. Now the choice is clear. I want to be Xena, Warrior Princess--though in a pinch I'd settle for her comely blond sidekick, Gabrielle. Xena kicks butt. Literally.
