THE SECRETS OF ISIS

1975 genre: TV rating: ***
"Oh Zephyr Winds which blow on high, lift me now so I can fly!" chants high school science teacher Andrea Thomas, played by the gorgeous Joanna Cameron, before turning into sexy Egyptian goddess Isis: fighting criminals, bullies, and anyone doing bad things.

Though it was a stretch no one figured Clark Kent was Superman, this brings the suspending-disbelief to a hilarious level: whether donning specs or wearing her sexy suit, Andrea and Isis look exactly the same, showing up seconds after our heroine, with a pet raven, saves the day.

Her pseudo boyfriend/fellow teacher, with a porn star level of acting, brings this Saturday Morning TV series to another level. And although it's a very expensive DVD set, the complete series is available on Netflix: fans of vintage camp won't be disappointed... In fact you'll savor every horrible moment with complete awe, and at the same time, the stories are simple and actually entertaining, with recognizable character-actors filling guest roles.
