I may have a problem....

Ok, so this might be kind of stupid.... I'm watching through all of Xena right now on Netflix, and I'm on the last episode of season one. One of the side characters is in labor, spending most of her time sitting off on the sidelines while the main action is occurring.

Cut to her lying on her back with her legs bent, and another character is telling her that the baby "hasn't come down at all" and I'm thinking, "Dammit, woman! You're an Amazon! Get off your back! You're better than this!" (also, since when did ancient greek warlords know anything about childbirth?)

And then they determine that the baby (apparently a half-centaur!) is breech and she has to have a C-section using candle-related hypnosis as a method of anaesthesia and the baby that comes out could *not* have fit inside that woman and then I realized I need to stop taking things so seriously.....

  1. HAHAHA! I know!

    Whenever I come across incorrect medical stuff in movies/programs/tv series - that's the end of it. I can't watch anymore.

    How easy is it for them to do a little research?? I guess they spend all the millions on production on other things.... (never mind a half-centaur thrown in)
