Did You Know?


Electronic special effects were credited to Sonex International. These effects were chroma key compositing done on video and then transferred to film. Most of the flying scenes were done this way. See more »


Because of the frequent use of stock footage continuity errors would often be present. Perhaps the most noticeable example is completely different backgrounds before and after Andrea's transformation into Isis. Her first action after transforming was to take flight and a handful of stock takeoffs recur repeatedly throughout the series. See more »


Isis: [Circumstance has forced Andrea to become Isis in front of Mason and Barnes; accordingly, after resolving the crisis at hand] ... Guide me, Osiris; Get behind me, Set; and that which my friends have just learned, let them now forget!
[the incantation works, saving her secret identity]
Rick Mason (Brian Cutler): ...Who can't be - can't be *who*?
Dr. Barnes (Albert Reed): I - I don't know. What - what were we talking about just now?
[Rick shrugs cluelessly]
Dr. Barnes (Albert Reed): Must not have been very important, then.
[Both shake their heads, laughing]

Alternate Versions

In syndication, the ending "morals tag" was removed from every episode. The original footage of these scenes is now lost, so when the series was released to DVD in 2007 the scenes could not be reinstated into the episodes; instead, second-generation copies of the scenes were included as a bonus feature.

Hatshepsut's Amulet
18 July 2008 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This was a great Saturday morning show for more than the kids. The dads too enjoyed seeing JoAnna Cameron as Isis dealing with all kinds of 20th century trouble.

By day Cameron was Andrea Thomas mild mannered archaeologist who came into possession of an ancient amulet, purportedly the property of Queen Hatshepsut back in the day. Worked properly and the spirit of ancient Isis entered the body of presumably a female and could give one superpowers.

JoAnna Cameron was one drop dead gorgeous goddess. Many a pubescent teen had some fantasies about her. Like Clark Kent she kind of dressed down in Andrea Thomas mode and had the requisite pair of dorky looking glasses as I recall.

I wouldn't mind seeing this again sometime.
