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.

Goofs

2809 West 20th Street, Chevy Chase, the home address Marcia gives to Wonder Woman under compulsion of truth by way of the magic lasso, is nonexistent and nonsensical. Numbered streets in Washington, DC, are indicated by quadrant (Northwest, Northeast, Southwest, or Southeast) never just by a single directional such as "West.") The highest numbered block of 20th Street NW is the 2400 block. In Southwest, 13th Street is the highest numbered street. Even so, the NW and SW addresses, were they to exist, would each be several miles from the Chevy Chase neighborhood. Oddly, comedian Chevy Chase, whose nickname is derived from the name of the DC/Maryland neighborhood, was just a few weeks into the first season of Saturday Night Live when this Wonder Woman pilot aired. He would shortly become its first breakout star. Some viewers of this pilot must have found it odd when Stella Stevens, as Marcia, blurted out "Chevy Chase." See more »

Quotes

Marcia: You may be fast, Wonder Woman, but nobody can be in two places at the same time!
[laughs]
Wonder Woman: It's over, Marcia, you're through.
Marcia: You may have me, but the Third Reich will never be through. It will go on a thousand years!
Wonder Woman: I heard the Greeks and the Romans say the same thing.
Marcia: You heard that?

all about campy and cheesy moments
13 January 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

I remember the time as a child watching Dukes Of Hazard, Space 1999 and the most closely to Wonder Woman, The Six Million Dollar Man, although The Bionic Woman is closest. Were as the Six Million Dollar Man is still believable and watchable it becomes really fast clear that this was a low budget series based on old comics and even filmed in comic style but with a lot of cheesy and campy moments.

But the pilot starts rather good with some real footage of WOII and especially on the part of the Nazis. It becomes clear that the Nazis want to destroy a hangar full of new techniques. But the US army picks up what is going to happen and sends out Steve Trevor to destroy the German bomber. But things go wrong in the first campy moments (Germans speaking English and explaining let's talk English so no German can understand our secret mission). and Steve crashlands on an uncharted island in the Bermuda triangle. An island full of women. But the queen wants to send Steve back to the US asap because otherwise the females could fall in love and could have sex. Guess who has to take Steve back, Wonder Women, in her (cheesy) invisible airplane.

The score makes it all watchable but it's more a big laughter due the fight scene's and the way the story goes but cult classic, don't get me wrong. No high tec here to see or special effects. Pure old school entertainment.
