So, usually we announce an Amazon Watch Party well in advance, but when I wrapped work on Friday at 5:00, Jamie said "are we doing a Watch Party?" which roughly translates to "I know you hadn't planned a Watch Party, but we're doing one" so, as I generally DNGAF, I was like "yeah, fine."
After some looking, we landed on Sheena (1984), because if I was getting roped into a movie party, Tanya Roberts. I think maybe I'd seen Sheena in middle-school, because I vaguely remembered bits. And I was, even then, vaguely aware of Sheena as an old-school pulp/ comics character. In fact, she debuted in 1938 - which is 3 years before Wondy. I also remembered what I considered to be "too many flamingoes". And, boy howdy, was that memory right.
Of course in the era of Blockbuster and other video shops, Tanya Roberts looked back at you from the cover of many-a-sun-bleached box covers.
