OH MIGHTY ISIS!
Dave Cordes | Denver, CO | 05/23/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)
"There are specific wonderful, magical moments in most young boys' lives when they realize that they have an attraction to the opposite sex. Such was the case when hottie JoAnna Cameron donned her ancient Egyptian amulet and chanted toward the sky "Oh zephyr winds which blow high, lift me now so I can fly," and I was awakened to such childhood wonders! Isis was a generational inspiration in the pantheon of heroic 70's television babes that included Linda Carter's Wonder Woman, Lindsay Wagner as the Bionic Woman, Charlie's Angels and Erin Gray's Wilma from Buck Rogers.
As science teacher Andrea Thomas, she had found the ancient amulet of Hatshepsut during an archeological dig which endowed upon her the powers of the ancient Egyptian goddess with the gifts of flight, speed, strength and telekinesis which were summoned when she intoned the sacred chants and using her powers selflessly to help those in need. Her secret identity was concealed even from her closest friends Rick Mason, Renee Carol and Cindy Lee, but known only to her faithful feathered companion, a black crow named Tut.
The Secrets of Isis began as part of the Shazam!/Isis hour on CBS in 1975 consisting of 15 episodes and spun-off into her own series the following year but lasted only 7 episodes. Isis would also crossover and appear in 3 episodes of Shazam! and later she appeared in animation form as a character of the Freedom Force on Tarzan and the Super 7.

"Oh my queen!" said the royal sorcerer to Hatshepsit, with this amulet you and your decendants are endowed by the goddess Isis, with the powers of the animals and elements. You will soar as the falcon soars, run with the speed of the gazelles and command the elements of sky and earth!"
3000 years later, a young science teacher dug up this lost treasure and found she was heir to... the secrets of Isis!
And so, unknown to even her closest friends, Rick Mason and Cindy Lee, she became a dual person - Andrea Thomas, teacher...
"Oh Mighty Isis!"
...and Isis! Dedicated foe of evil. Defender of the weak. Champion of truth and justice."
Awesome Trip Back to Childhood!

"TV show box sets are great, but every now and then one comes along that just catapults you back to your childhood and "ISIS" is one of them. I had so much fun watching this over the past week that I felt like I was seven years old all over again. The show was really well done considering the obvious lack of budget. I've pretty much like all of the live action shows that Filmation did and can't wait for them to release "Shazam!". "ISIS" was my favorite though! She's a very different type of super hero. After she turns from Andrea to ISIS, she sort of just poses for the camera, not really in a hurry to save anyone. And when she gets there she pretty much just points at rocks or tree branches and has them do her work for her. If you check out the manicure on ISIS you'd know why she doesn't want to ruin her nails.
The extras are outstanding as well. An ISIS cartoon I've never seen before, and several interviews are included."
Isis Still A Winner

"As a kid I got up every Saturday morning to watch Isis. Over 30 years later it's still fun to see these episodes again. Technology has changed so much in the past several years and these special effects might seem hokey to today's kids, but in my day it was great seeing her fly and work her powers over nature as Isis.
Joanna Cameron is one of the most beautiful actresses and I wish she had done more. She was able to deliver lines like "Oh zephyr winds that blow on high, lift me now so I can fly" with such believeablity, even by today's standards.
The extras show interviews with Brian Cutler, who played Rick Mason, and Joanna Pang, who played Cindy Lee. But there was none with Ms. Cameron. I wish there were more information about her as to how she felt about being an icon of the 70's and what she's doing today.
If you were a fan of this show I think you'll really like it. It was good to watch a TV show from a more innocent time where there was a hero who would win in the end. I was able to watch this with a five year old and not worry about any "adult" content popping up. That was refreshing!"

"There was two shows I was addicted to on Saturday mornings as a kid one was Sabrina The Teenage Witch cartoons the other was ISIS!! I LOVED this show and I CAN'T wait to see her again after almost thirty something years!! Why they haven't ran these on American pay TV is a surprise to me. Even if it was for Saturdays on a TV channel like TV Land it would have been great but at least now we can OWN these fun shows from our childhood. Reading the extra features and seeing the bang up cover art is awesome and looks excellent!! I can't wait to see this again....Only wish theyd release Sabrina cartoons too..Come on Filmation owners give us Sabrina too you gave us Groovy Goolies and now The Archie Show & Isis WHERE is Sabrina!!!????:)"
