    He's Steve Trevor Jr? I wondered how they could time-skip thirty-five years and have Steve still there.

    Did Diana ever date Steve One or show any interest in him? Because if she ends up doing the same with his kid.....yikes.

    I love the Wonder Woman theme song. But I don't know how many ways it's been distorted in the season 2 episodes. It has become hard to listen to.

    Sorry I missed this earlier. Yeah, It confused the heck out of me too. I followed the wrong schedule, which showed then airing what logically should have been the next episode. But that episode apparently was 90 minutes so they postponed it.

    At first I thought maybe they cut the first half hour. It was weird that she was right in the middle of working as a secret agent already.

    Not a great episode. But for what season 2 is missing in Nazis it makes up for with wild sci-fi plots.
    Yeoman Prince had big 70's glasses and her hair up in a bun, Steve Sr. was tongue tied trying not to say how plain looking she was. Wonder Woman came and went so fast it was all business. She might not have given him much of a chance.

    It's a crazy plot device that Jr. is the spitting image of his father but it would have sucked if Lyle Wagner lost the part. Central casting couldn't invent a more obvious leading man. He was quite popular as Carol Burnett's man candy. Definitely more handsome then Gary Collins.
    (Maybe this is where I should note that my mom and sisters needed reasons to watch the show too.)

    The "son" thing wasn't necessary for an alien; they could simply say his race lives longer.

    It was a different actor. I actually don't get if he is Andros's son, or that aliens change like that or we are just supposed to ignore it because it's just tv.
    At any rate, that kind of thing throws a curve into Diana's love life.

    Ok, so I've been watching season two of the show from Netflix recently and I just wanted to comment on it. So far, the 70's episodes are actually really fun... until Wonder Woman shows up. Basically it's a really awesome show when it's about "Diana Prince: Super Spy". Then Wonder Woman shows up in her star-spangled bathing suit throwing cars and it just gets campy and cheesy and feels out of place.

    It worked better in the 40's based episodes simply because the Nazi's were also kinda campy and cheesy in their own right and the Wonder Woman look played off of them perfectly. In the 70's when she's fighting Bond villains it just doesn't fit.

    I don't know, maybe it's just me.

    It also may just be me as well, but Lynda Carter looks a lot hotter in her "frumpy" outfits and oversized tinted glasses then she does in her Wonder Woman outfit. Seriously those glasses need to come back into style.

    Why are they skipping around so much? There's more from Season 2 they haven't aired.

    MeTv is showing the two parters on Friday nights as their movie special. It made sense for the season two premier that was 90 minutes and didn't fit in the regular Saturday night schedule. For the other ones, not so much.

    We'll see in two weeks if they replay Mind Stealers From outer Space again or skip over it.
