Cleopatra 2525

I just rewatched Cleopatra 2525 and I'm here to tell you that it's still awesome.

It's Kung-Fu Barbarella. So much wire-fighting. So much Cyberdog. Floating shape-shifting robots have chased humanity underground, occasionally attacking with T-1000s with blaster arms. Everyone has Spider-Man web-shooters, and there's an evil clown. It's got everything! But the thing that makes it work is that it's a comedy but almost every character in it fully commits to being in an action movie. They are So Very Serious.

It does, however, have a theme song that is possibly worse than Enterprise. Don't let that put you off.

It ends on an extremely frustrating cliffhanger and a final episode that seems to have stopped production halfway through. Yet Arrow gets six seasons. I would trade the entirety of Game of Thrones for one more season of Cleopatra 2525.

Here, here, watch. It looks like the whole thing is on Youtube too, but in varying quality.
