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.

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!
The extras are outstanding as well. An ISIS cartoon I've never seen before, and several interviews are included.
The extras are a mixed bag. The inclusions of an ISIS cartoon and production stills are to be applauded, but commentary from the show's producers is a waste of time (they don't remember a lot of specifics about the show, and their self-congratulatory remarks about creating a show that respected women are dealt a blow when they state that their main goal in selecting an actress to play the part of Isis was to find someone with "great legs.") My advice: skip the commentary and interviews involving the producers, but check out everything else.
The audio-visual quality of the episodes themselves isn't as sharp as that in the "Wonder Woman" DVD's, to make the closest comparison that comes to mind as far as genre and era of production. However, it's hardly unwatchable, and as others have mentioned, it's all brightly lit (mainly because the series was shot pretty much entirely in daylight to keep expenses as low as possible.)
So watch the adventures of ISIS and her friends and I'm sure you'll agree, they just don't make 'em like this anymore. Long live ISIS on DVD!

It is now out of print because the manufacturer has been taken over by a company who no longer likes this stuff. You'll have to get it from a Marketplace Seller.

|PLEASE RELEASE THE 1976 CLASSIC TV SERIES THE BIONIC WOMAN REGION 1 US||
It is about time that those with the rights to the Bionic Woman, and The Six Million Dollar Man, made both series available to the fans on DVD. All seasons of both series, plus the reunion movies. The market is there, when are the business and legal experts going to capitalise on that market?
