Guilty Pleasure: 2525




In the early 21st century, a stripper who goes by the stage name, Cleopatra, gets a boob job but never wakes up from the anesthesia. Until the year 2525 when she's brought out of cold storage for parts. After a kidney is transplanted into futuristic warrior woman, Sarge, she awakens, and finds herself in a world where humans have been driven underground by invaders, presumably alien. She is soon teemed up with the sexy and scantily clad Amazon duo, Sarge and Hel. Hel is played by the ravishing Gina Torres, later to attain glory in Firefly. Cleopatra's main talent is the ability to distract the bad guys by pole dancing.

Sam Rami can find the lowest common denominator.

My Dad was NUTS for Xena warrior princess. I guess the closest I get is an obsession with the unrealized love between Jim and Pam on the Office.

Josh Gentry said...

No, Jim, that's something different. The Office is good. Yes, your obsessing over television, but its good television. Cleopatra 2525 was really bad. Xena was bad. Fun, but bad.

Jim, a man after my own heart....oh, Jim and Pam... Josh, watch the U.S. Version!

Does Matt know about this? He has an interest in Gina Torres if I remember correctly.

Oh, Sam Rami.

Jennifer Sky's (Cleo) hip-to-waist ratio is some kind of perfect numerical relationship.

Raimi is genious. I have never seen this show but I'm certain it is fabulous if Raimi is involved in any way.

Josh Gentry said...

Sam Raimi was executive producer. This show ran back-to-back with a Raimi/Cambell show, Jack of All Trades.

Anna said...

yeah, yeah, yeah, perfect numerical relationship...set by whom? what great man decided this? Maybe, I have decided my hip-to-waist ratio is most superior?

Well, it is my blog. Yes, I'm objectifying. Her super power is stripping, after all.
