Wonder Woman

Show Summary

This is the third attempt at bringing Wonder Woman to the small screen. The first was an unaired pilot from the 1960's and the next was an unsuccessful mid 1970's movie starring Cathy Lee Crosby as a blonde Wonder Woman! Finally, in 1975, the athletic and stunning Lynda Carter was perfectly cast as the amazonian princess who leaves the island of Themyscira to fight for justice in man's world. The first season took place during World War II with Wonder Woman fighting the Nazis. The Second season updated the Wonder Woman mythos to modern times and a different network. The series only lasted three seasons but proved to be a pop-cultural hit thanks to reruns.

    Wonder Woman was essential 70's television. Good hearted camp superhero action all held together by the looks and assets of one amazing starlet, Lynda Carter. Whether battling Nazis, enhanced gorillas, space aliens or evil art dealers, Wonder woman would always prevail and do it with a smile!

    I read Wonder Womam comic books back in the 60's. When Wonder Woman started I watched every epsiode. Lynda Carter was The perfect Wonder Woman.

  • This series follows the adventures of Wonder Woman, also known as Diana Prince or as Princess Diana of Paradise Island.

    Despite a major format change in mid-stream, in which the setting shifted from WWII to then-modern times, this series held its own pretty well. Credit Lynda Carter for that. She WAS Wonder Woman, and whoever plays her in the long-rumored upcoming movie is going to have some huge boots to fill.



    Basically, the show took the whole hero-saving-the-damsel-in-distress cliche and set it on its ear. Wonder Woman was the hero(ine), more often than not coming to the rescue of one of the Maj. Trevors (the father in WWII, the son in the '70s). It's a little hard to understand how two danger-prone men could have survived before her arrival, much less attained high military ranks. It's also best not to read too deeply into how Wonder Woman (who aged much more slowly) could get romantically involved with both the father and the son, even though both relationships look more like innocent middle-school flirtations compared to what goes on TV today.



    Wonder Woman had a magic lasso that forced people to tell the truth, an invisible jet, and bracelet that deflected bullets. Pretty much her only vulnerabilities were to chloroform and sleeping gas; the bad guys seemed to knock out either Wonder Woman herself or her Diana Prince alter-ego about once every third or fourth episode.



    Despite the aforementioned logical holes, this show was a classic. Enjoy!moreless
  • Reasons WonderWoman was so popular- Two things kept that series going both held up Lynda Carters red white and blue outfit!

    Back in the day I was a teen when WW was on and what I remember about it was it was all about sexploitation. It wasn't bad enough to parade Ms Carter around in such a revealing costume- No! They had to sexualize young male viewers by repaetedly rendering either WW or Diana unconscious by various means. I remember my friends who watched it talk about wouldn't it be great to remove Diana's or WW's clothes while she was out. I even know of one father who encouraged this kind of thinking in his son. I wonder what became of him? Battle of the Network stars was another example of sexploitation. I mean who wouldn't watch Lynda Carter get her swimsuit wet while being dunked in the dunk tank. Comon it was fluff, and unnecessary sexualizing fluff which has never been equaled except perhaps fpr Farrah Fawcett in Charlies Angels. nuff said!!!moreless

    Wonder Woman was fantastic especially growing up I saw it when I was about 8 or 9 and I loved it.



    You can not beat Lynda Carter she had charm, innocence while being sexy and feminine.



    The WWII series was wonderful shame it did not last longer



    Unfortunately the budget was not too great and the later series lost a lot of the charm of the previous ones but I still love it.



    I am sure the Movie when it comes out will be awful, real dark and moody like Batman has become.



    We seem to have lost the knack of making Science Fiction series like they use to.



    Cheers guys.moreless
