The episode of "Amazon Hot Wax" was removed from the American syndication package due to a discrepancy over the music rights (ironically involving the songs recorded by series star Lynda Carter). The episode was restored to the series for the 2005 DVD release, however. See more »
Throughout the first season, secondary characters and extras sport hairstyles and sometimes clothing that looked more from the 1970s, when the series was filmed, than from the 1940s, in which the series was set. See more »
As a young male, I found Wonder Woman entertaining for two reasons-Lynda Carter was beautiful and the show was, in my opinion, as camp and as fun as the 60's Batman show.
I think a lot of women loved Wonder Woman because she was totally independent. She didn't need a man to help her save the day. She could beat the bad guys herself.
But, back to the show itself. Throughout the show Wonder Woman faced all kinds from regular bad guys to mad scientists. The show was very tongue-in-cheek and despite the show making me realize just how much us guys need women, I enjoyed it very much. There was the type of action you just don't see anymore on TV and plenty of original humour.
Wonder Woman was indeed wonderful.
