    This is the first time I've seen this show. I caught the pilot movie and it was actually better than I thought it would be. And I think its cool that its set during WWII times. I think I'd like to see more of this show.

    It also pairs up with up with Batman really well (On the MeTV schedule). While its not as crazy as that show, there are some campy elements.

    The one thing that kinda threw me off was the invisible jet. It feels a little awkward and weird. But still, I'm excited to see more!

    I'm a little nervous that the rest of the series could be of lower quality than the pilot movie, which I assume got a bigger budget than a normal episode.

    As Wonder Woman Lynda Carter is smiley. It feels like she is both friendly and above the petty malices of the world.
    It’s underplayed but she makes for a good detective in this pilot. She roots out the spy ring, stops the theft, takes down the bomber and rescues Steve. In that short time she also takes three jobs.
    And anyone that can walk around in that costume has got to have the confidence of a super hero.
    She really pulls off the part.

    One interesting thing is the picture of FDR that keeps popping up. It makes him look like a gangster. That long cigarette holder is more like the Penguin then a president. But at the end, once the spy is gone and replaced by the good Diana Prince, the picture on Steve Trevers wall is a saintly portrait of George Washington, signifying that they’ve gone back to decent principals of government.
    Although it’s kind of silly using FDR that way.

    The special effects are really campy and dated, especially the blue screen.
    The fight wasn’t exactly up to Buffy the Vampire Slayer levels, but was serviceable. Lifting the car works pretty good and shows off her strength. The old lady hauling out the machine gun was a good laugh.

    Paradise Island was.. Was that Baywatch Island?
    It's always a kick to see Cloris Leachman turn up in old shows.
    What is kind of psycho that they are testing each others skills by shooting dead center between the eyes. That has to be the biggest WTH moment of the show.

    P.S. Spin Transformation!

    These air dates are crazy! Some episodes are months apart and these last two were only 2 days apart. Why did they schedule it so sporadically? They couldn't have tried to kill this show better than this.

    Anywho, I liked these past two episodes a lot. It had to be a gutsy call to invade Paradise Island. An Island filled with Wonder Women essentially. The only advantage the invaders had was the element of surprise. Otherwise they were completely outmatched. That seems like a battle few would attempt.

    I also thought Drusilla was a fun addition to the group. It was fun to see a different side of Diana who didn't have to be so secretive and instead could relate things to Drusilla and then worry about her. I hope she sticks around or comes back later on.

    In part 1, I couldn't believe when Dru did the spin transformation! I didn't think she would be able to do that. I just assumed only Wonder Woman would be able to. But its still the best way to change clothes ever invented!

    Feminum is a cool name for the mineral they were mining too.

    Actually, the first couple of episodes were in the early part of '76, then they went to series in the fall.

    We're getting close to a couple of Wonder Woman episodes I have from an original airdate recording. It'll be interesting to compare and see if anything is cut.

    Okay, I can definitely tell this airing has been sped up.

    You'd be shocked if you saw the recording of the original airing and found out just HOW SHORT ad breaks were in 1977. One minute each, not counting network promos. There were a lot of ads for candy, including what appears to be the first Twix ad.
