Fresh from my review of the 1984 movie, let me now pitch in on the 2000 TV series. First off, and DO NOT TRY TO TELL ME ANY DIFFERENT :) Gena Lee Nolin was physically at her ultimate drop- dead gorgeous best in BAYWATCH a whole lot of moons earlier, and though she of course still looked great, SHEENA the TV series really should have been filmed then. And I agree with the young reviewer who spoke out about Sheena's baggy clothes. As this is absolutely pure escapism, we really should have had a better-dressed (!!) Sheena. I found Sheena's supernatural powers, however innovative an idea, way too much to take. Observe the original idea, little white cute kid girl gets lost in Africa years ago, adopted by tribe who sees her as realization of prophesy, grows up to be a regal queen, but where does the alien abilities come from? Okay, so don't let the facts get into the way of a good yarn, but really! they messed with an original classic!
I'd also complain that Gena often looked too sulky. Both actresses played Sheena in a not-too-approachable way, and the plot does call for it at times, but, gee, lighten up a bit!
Please bear in mind I've not gotten around to the Second Season yet. And my first season set, that Spanish one, fortunately with English soundtrack available, has the episodes in the wrong order, and names of episodes in Spanish only. So I saw it all at times slightly out of context. But there's something missing all the time. I can't exactly say what, but it sure needs a bit more Hollywood magic than it has.
