I need to go to sleep so I am writing this quick, well, quick for me. Wandering Through The Shelves wanted me to think this week because most of the royalty shows that are out or have been out recently, I have not seen. Here are my picks with one being a stretch...well, maybe 2.
1. THE SECRETS OF ISIS-1975-1977
This was shown on Saturday mornings and I watched every one even though it was pretty cheesy, but I thought the leading lady, Joanna Cameron, was very pretty. Basically, a teacher visits Egypt and finds this ancient amulet belonging to Queen Hatshepsut. Anyone who is an ancestor of this queen Hatcheckgirl, will have her powers. Guess what? Yup the teach has them and decides to help the teen kids who get into trouble, get out of trouble. When the teach sees something bad happening, she takes this amulet she wears on her neck and puts it on and she transforms into the goddess Isis who can speak to animals and has a way with amulets or whatever. I’m trying to remember but I thought it was cool. We need Isis to kick some ass in the schools nowadays.
2. WONDER WOMAN- 1976-1979
To me, I will always have a soft spot for Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman who fought the bad guys while secretly lusting after the major Steve. She is a princess from the secret island where women rule. They are the ancient warriors of blah. When good looking Lyle Waggoner is saved by Lynda Carter, her mom, Cloris Leachman, tells her she can nurse him but can’t bring him back to the States. A big event takes place to determine who the best warrior is and, even though Lynda is banned by her mommy to be part of this, she hides under some blonde wig and wins the events. Guess who is bringing the bad boy huggy bear home? Yup, Princess Diana where she dons eyeglasses to hide who she truly is(Why is everyone in the entire world fooled by eyeglasses?). With her bracelets and lasso of truth, she can best all the bad evil guys in that little suit and her ta-tas never fall out.
3. XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS- 1995-2001
I’m guilty as charged. I watched this show and thought it was quite good to be honest. Xena was one evil bitch who liked placing her enemies’ heads on a stick but she found out she would rather be good so, with her trusty sidekick, blond innocent Gabriele, baring her midriff, they fight evil everywhere they go. Sometimes, the gods help or hinder them or sometimes a goofy guy who wishes to be a Gladiator, helps them out. There were some heavy episodes especially when the devil comes on board to spread evil but there were fun ones too especially when Bruce Campbell paid visit as the king of thieves. I enjoyed watching this...yes...me.
What Royal shows can you think of?
