I remember it being a TV show, not a movie. Laughing

That's true - an agreeable TV show - though, if I remember rightly, the ladies didn't actually appear in the final episode, which was a bit strange!

____________________________________

I'm not familiar with the show, so I cheated and copied this from IMDB.
____________________________________

An exotic dancer, cryogenically frozen in the year 2001, is accidentally thawed out in 2525 by two female warriors who are fighting against evil robots which have taken over the world. The three join forces and try to escape the underground caverns to which humanity has been banished, meeting up with all sorts of strange creatures along the way.

On the Trivia side:

Gina Torres who played Hel Carter on Cleopatra 2525 also appeared on "Xena Warrior Princess" as the real-life historical character "Cleopatra" in the third season episode titled, "The King of Assassins".

In another connection with "Xena", Lucy Lawless provided the voice in the pilot episode, but couldn't continue in the series due to another commitment. Elizabeth Hawthorne took over the role. The pilot episode did eventually air as the fifth episode, titled "Home," but Lucy's voice was recorded over by Elizabeth in order to keep it consistent.

The Cleopatra 2525 Theme Song was a remix of Zager and Evans' 1969 hit, "In the Year 2525" - with altered lyrics:

In the year 2525
There are women with the will to survive
Fighting for a brand new day
Nothing's gonna get in their way.

In the year 2525
Three women keep hope alive
Joining forces to reclaim the Earth
Looking ahead to humankind's rebirth.
