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 »
I love Cleopatra 2525. The show moves like lightning, plot set up takes about 2 minutes and subplots, if any, are sketched in between bursts of gunfire. It's a show in which all extraneous elements have been stripped out, leaving you with a bunch of cute, underdressed girls running and shooting. Yes, sometimes it's incomprehensible, but when the show is on it's dynamite. In one episode Cleo relives the same scenario 3 times, a Run Lola Run in 22 minutes. The pace is breathless, Jennifer Sky is funny and adorable, the show is shameless (stripper transported into a future full of scantilly clad women is the kind of idea people come up with at 4 in the morning after a lot of drinking). It leaves you breathless. Anyway, I love "chicks kick ass" shows, and if Cleo isn't quit Buffy the Vampire Slayer, it's still great campy action. If only they would trash that horrible reworking of the song 2525. It has the most abysmal lyrics written ever by anyone.
