Will Someone Please Leak the Wonder Woman Pilot? Please?

Seriously, will someone just post the Wonder Woman pilot online already? We've heard so much about it, and I really want to see it. Because c'mon: Anything project with instant brand recognition and an A-list writer (David E. Kelley) behind it, not to mention one that was rejected by every single network on its first pass, is something I'm going to want—no—need to see.

And to make matters worse, a few seconds of the show hit the internet today in a cruel attempt to torture me (via Bleedingcool.com).



I know there's a copy out there somewhere, because there are reviews of the pilot online and they're exactly what I hoped for: ranty venom mixed with hysterical disbelief. My favorite so far comes from Toplessrobot.com's Rob Bricken, who writes, "After I watched it, I became horribly ill." If that doesn't sell the need to see it to you, I don't know what will. Bricken's story is a great read because he's well-learned in Wonder Woman lore and desperately wanted to like the pilot, but couldn't find anything nice to say about it except that Adrienne Palicki gave it her best.

So please, someone out there do the right thing and put this out there for all the world to see.

TV.com does not condone piracy but, like a tree falling the forest, is it really piracy if the show will never air?

As a lifelong fan of WW I'm finding the comment 'reboot of the iconic 70's series' a completely incorrect statement. The 70's series WAS/IS based on the comic book series started in 1941. To make Wonder Woman work in today's age is to revisit the actual origin/rich mythological background. Those that are not familiar with the comics version of WW don't know her to be anything but a watered down superhero when in fact she's an ambassador of peace (but if you push her she will push back...and harder) If WB would get their head's out of their asses they would realize 2 things...WW is a franchise/brand name in and of itself. She IS the star...she needs an unknown to breathe life into her. With an icon so firmly established (much like Superman and Batman) it's her armor/uniform that people recognize. Deviating too far from that disappoints the geeks/fans who identify the image with their hero and the general public (as shown from the backlash at NBC's attempt) won't identify with the character and that's when it seems the ripping apart starts to happen. Also, if Marvel can bring their own mythological hero to the screen with a #1 movie (Thor) I cannot seem to wrap my brain around the fact that they haven't done this with WW. Many don't know the deep mythological roots and there's the story itself. The antagonists are much more powerful and it allows the character to develop into who the character from the comics truly is. A woman trying to live in an environment she doesn't recognize, a chip on her shoulder regarding Patriarch's World and the public views of her 'perfection' which is the contrast right there. Show us the imposing, kickass Amazon Warrior that she is and also the woman on the opposite end of the spectrum...kind, compassionate and loving. As far as the uniform...muted, deep colors with an actual armor appearance. Think Clash Of The Titans, Xena, Troy, etc :) There's also the side fact that she has different uniforms for different functions in the comics and in the 70's series. Cast the campiness aside and let's see the true spectrum of the character. She is, afterall, the amalgam of Batman and Superman.

I have been searching for it online every day, zilch. They should sell this on dvd the way they did the Aquaman pilot. I would totally buy it.

I really want them to put this on iTunes like aquaman (yeah I bought that). Thinking about the 3 costumes, my guess i the creators were giving the network a choice on what her costume would be since their was so much controversy. I'm sure it sucks, but I still want to see it and they'd make some money.

i want to watch this so bad, WW show was a bad idea from the start, not everything from the 70s/80s has to be re-done.

Just watch the Bionic Woman pilot again. I'm pretty sure it will be much the same trainwreck.

They should have knwon the "small" changes they made to this "Wonder Woman" would have a big impact from fans. Glad this got pulled.

The title card alone is cringe-worthy.

No doubt they will flog it on DVD and make some money. The photos look atrocious.

Wait until August. That's when a lot of failed pilots show up on TV as specials. Although I would like to see it as well as the 17th Precinct pilot. I've noticed "leaked" pilots showing up online quite often in previous years, but that didn't seem to really happen last year, at least not for major shows. And I don't consider it piracy unless someone is actually trying to sell the material, although it's still copyright infringement.

If the show is half as bad as everyone said it was, SyFy will probably make an even WORSE version of it.

If the show was half as bad as everyone said it was then NBC probably appointed someone to destroy every single copy of it so no-one would ever see their shame.

Fox aired the Virtuality pilot back in 2009 despite passing on the series. They aired it as a special TV movie when their schedule was soft in June.
The majority of season finales are done and the summer replacements are barley here, this would be a perfect time for NBC to air the Wonder Woman pilot as a special TV event. Would love to see it happen but I'm not holding my breath.

To all NBC executives who read TV.com comments: We the people must see the pilot! I'm actually one of the few people who was prepared to give the show a chance, without dismissing it just because some feel we are supposed to defend the legacy of a campy show from the 70's against any remakery. I was prepared to be objective and not to condemn the show immediately because some nostalgic memory of Lynda Carter is "holy and untouchable". I was even prepared not to look at Palicki's boobs and focus on the plot and production values instead! And you gave us all the hype but delivered nothing! We need to see it! Better yet, we deserve to see it! Judging by the reviews, the pilot should remain as a reminder for future TV producers of how not to do their job. And we as viewers and fans have the right to give a verdict too. To do that, we need to see it!
