    IRAC is missing

    2 episodes featuring IRAC under threat in a row. Hilarious now watching these 'incredibly adavanced' 1970s style computers when you now know that your mobile phone probably contains more computing power than they did. But powerful mega-computers with personality something of an obsession in the late 70s. Here we have Rover allowing to IRAC to get out and about more. You do think of Twiki from Buck Rogers but also at the networks suggestion that the X-files employ a 'cute talking robot' as a sidekick for Scully and Mulder. You get the idea that they may have had an eye on the toy market with it? We see more and more of Diana Prince without her glasses, by this stage her disguise hardly seems necessary. But you could argue that when folks see Wonder Woman they're normally not looking at her eyes? (as Howard on The Big Bang Theory points out)

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (8)

    • When Havitol informs Wonder Woman that the bomb is set to take out IRAC, he tells her she must travel 48 miles in 4 minutes to stop its detonation in time, adding she may be fast but not that fast. Wonder Woman makes the trip on foot (and leaping) and arrives with enough time to locate the bomb before it detonates. Given the time and distance this means Wonder Woman would had to have traveled at speeds upward of 720 mph!

      This was the only confirmation of how truly fast Wonder Woman was during the series run.

    • It is obvious that the producers thought the US government had very relaxed security. It seems so easy to get into the IRAC room through the vents and easy to get back out and easy to impersonate a janitor. In earlier episodes, security was much tighter with guards at doors etc.

    • When the goons go into the lab for the first time, they walk down a hall which is identical to the hall seen in the previous episode with the exception that the walls are now just grey instead of red.

    • This is the first appearance of "Rover", the dog-like computer that is tied to IRAC.

    • Wonder Woman realizes she must break the electrical cables in order to stop the bomb's timer. As she jumps up to break them in half with her hand, an obvious seam is visible in the cables.

    • When Wonder Woman is "fighting" the red laser inside Havitol's hideout, the floor and the walls behind her suddenly become safety mats.

    • Strangely, when Wonder Woman leaves the thief to rescue the construction worker, she does not command him to "remain where he is" while under the influence of the Golden Lasso as this allows the thief to escape.

    • In this episode, we have definite confirmation that IRA knows Diana Prince's secret.

  • QUOTES (2)

  • NOTES (1)

    • In the previous episode Diana mistakes the target as the wealthy businessman C.A.R.I. (Carlo A. R. Indrezzano) because of the secretary's dyslexia when typing the telegram. Coincidentally, in this episode the female robot that is abducted along with I.R.A.C. is Cori.
