One season with 22 episodes in 2000/2001
Favorite episodes: 6, 21
A young woman returns to her home in California after her father’s mysterious death. There, she becomes a symbol, the queen of swords, fighting for justice and trying to right the wrongs the colonel has done.
As I first saw the heroine of this series, I thought: What a stupid mask, everyone would know who she is….! But I gave it a try …and that paid off great!
Not only the that Tessie Santiago looks gorgeous, the series had a good storyline and some really great “mask action”! And the two main villains were really great! Great chemistry between them and the Queen of Swords… 🙂
(attempted unmasking, self unmasking, unmasking, secret identity discovered)
Great scenes…. very “sexy” scenes. Only the quantity was a bit too low for over 20 episodes…
But episodes 6 and 21 really delivered big time!
Good storyline with solid action scenes! I like how she helps the oppressed as the Queen of Swords.
The idea for the most famous episode 21 was GREAT! A villain trapped with her in a mine where she can’t escape.
And he is eager to find out who is hiding under that mask!
Well, ok, in that era she can’t have a sexy black rubber mask. I understand.
Her forehead is covered, but nearly everyone would know how she is, even with the mask on. But ok, at least it is a far better disguise than Superman and his Clark Kent identity 😉
Rest of the costume
Nice outfit, sexy cleavage. For that era it’s very good as most sexy materials can’t be used in that historic setting!
Tessie Santiago (Queen of Swords / Maria Teresa Alvarado): Acting is solid, looks really hot/sexy in both identities. Nice facial expressions.
