Storyline

During World War II, a plane piloted by Major Steve Trevor crashes near Paradise Island, the secret hidden island home of the mighty and eternally young Amazons. He is rescued by Princess Diana, who learns of the war against the Nazis. The Amazons decide to send one of their own to help fight in this crisis. Although forbidden to participate in the selection process, Diana joins secretly and wins the right and responsibility to go. Taking the still unconscious Major to safety, she joins him as Yeoman Diana Prince. Furthermore, when the forces of evil threaten the nation, Diana would spin to transform into Wonder Wonder, armed with a magic belt giving her tremendous strength, bracelets that can stop any bullet, a tiara that can be thrown as a returning weapon and a unbreakable magic lasso that can force anyone to tell the truth. After WW II, she returned to the Island, only to encounter Steve Trevor Jr., agent for IADC, thirty years later. Seeing the amazing coincidence as a sign, she ...

Great 70s kitsch- and Lynda Carter's best role, ever.
17 September 1999 | by (Indianapolis) – See all my reviews

I've been watching the reruns of late on the Sci-Fi channel, and am rediscovering how silly and entertaining the whole show is; I prefer the "New Adventures", but even the WW2 episodes are zany fun. Very 70s; everything looks dated... ...but Lynda? Whoa! I had a major thing for Lynda when I was a kid, and so did every other heterosexual male of the time; I still do, too... The show may be cheesy, but there is no denying that Lynda Carter plays one sexy and fun Wonder Woman. Unlike most of the Charlie's Angels, who look like sex symbols from a bygone era, Lynda looks great, 20+ years later. She hasn't aged that badly either.

The show itself definitely could have used some improvement; a continuing storyline and better sf/x could have made the show a little more timeless. Guest appearances by other DC super-heroines would have been cool, too. As far as superhero shows go, though, it's a definite improvement over the 60's Batman, and is on a par with the Incredible Hulk. (C'mon, though... a green Lou Ferrigno, or a buxom Lynda Carter?)

Definitely recommended viewing- although one should read the original comics (especially George Perez' run) to get a truer feel for Wonder Woman's mythos.

(I hesitate to see what will become of the Wonder Woman film currently in production- it's hard to see anyone but Lynda being WW.)
