Originally the producers had planned to make the show "Amazon High", which has a young woman (Played by Monica McSwain) who went back in time, but that version of the show didn't make it beyond the pilot, although the footage was later recycled for the "Xena" episode "Lifebood". The producers then twisted the original concept and came up with "Cleopatra 2525". See more »
Anyone who's watched any of the "Action Pack" shows like Xena and the like knows that they range from the comically cheesy to the just plain dumb. But here, in this futuristic show, somehow the formula of action, slapstick, and pop-culture in-jokes works great. Jennifer Sky is hilarious as the unfrozen exotic dancer who's WAY out of her league in this bizarre Lewis-Carrol-meets-Blade-Runner-on-acid future world, but bluffs incredibly well. Victoria Pratt pulls off the square-jaw heroics better than many before her - a 26th century Xena. And Action Pack veteran Gina Torres is finally given a three-dimensional character. The fact that our heroes are gorgeous women with exposed midriffs is more incidental than you'd think..
