Storyline

After a dogfight with a Nazi plane, U.S. Air Force Steve Trevor crashlands on an uncharted island in the Bermuda Triangle. Paradise Island is inhabited only by women, and their existence has been kept a secret for thousands of years. Learning of the Nazi threat to humanity, the Amazon princess, Diana, is chosen to accompany Trevor back to the United States to battle the Third Reich. Garbed in a skimpy red, white & blue costume and armed with a magic lasso that forces anyone within its grasp to tell the truth, Diana uses her powers as Wonder Woman to battle the forces of evil. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

Great start to a WONDERful series
31 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The pilot episode of Wonder Woman was a fabulous, all-star feature-length television film that remained extremely true to the original 1941 comic-book origin as written by William Moulton Marston (under the pen name Charles Moulton), famous psychiatrist and inventor of the lie detector. Lynda Carter, although a very green newcomer at the time, shone in the lead role that would make her famous. Any future attempts to bring Wonder Woman to the screen will obviously be compared to Ms. Carter's portrayal, and even modern computer-enhanced effects will be hard pressed to overshadow her legacy. Cloris Leachman portrayed Wonder Woman's mother, Queen Hippolyte, a character with roots back to ancient Greek myth. Despite her star power and my own affection towards Ms. Leachman, I prefer Carolyn Jones' portrayal of the Queen in later first season episodes, and I find Beatrice Colen to have been the most regal of the three Queens. It would be my hope that, if a Wonder Woman movie were to materialize in the foreseeable future, that Lynda Carter herself would portray the Queen. Not only would this acknowledge her unforgettable run as Wonder Woman, it would also be appropriate in that more recent comic-book story lines explain that Hippolyta was the WWII era Wonder Woman, and the circle would then be complete.
