Sheena, with Gena Lee Nolin, John Allen Nelson, and Margo Moorer, was a great late night show of the early decade. Being a remake of a short- lived 50s action TV show, and produced by Stephen Sears, who was a producer of Baywatch, to which Nelson and Nolin were stars, comes along the female Tarzanesque storyline. Nolin is the Tarzan, who is dedicated to preserving nature and respecting the culture to which Western has invaded. Nelson is the Westerner who is quite the cynic, only out for himself business wise and personal wise as well, but one has to wonder what purposes he serves. Both Nolin and Nelson show off skin, but the majority of the time, Nelson's only primary purpose seems to either be the cynic, or somehow manage to get shirtless before the show ends. Sufficient eye candy aside, one has to wonder if the plot truly develops or if its just Baywatch in the jungle at one a.m. Where people are barely conscious to pay attention and the script shows it. Clearly, Nolin's purpose is defined, but not really going anywhere. Nelson is just better off walking around shirtless than to wear clothes at all and pretend to have a purpose. Overall, 3 stars.
