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.

Trivia

The first two actual episodes of the first season (the pilot was originally shown as a made for TV movie) were broadcast as TV "specials". The executives at ABC were still unsure if they wanted to commit to a full season of the series and decided to produce 2 episodes and show them as specials. When these specials generated high ratings, ABC gave the green light for the series and the remaining 11 episodes to be shown in the fall. See more »

Lynda Carter Is Wonder Woman
23 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The success of this show can be attributed largely to the casting of Lynda Carter who was believable as Wonder Woman. Without her, the show probably would never have gained the popularity that it did.

During the '70s live action show the 6 million Dollar Man, was a success due to the interesting usage of special effects. Wonder Woman might have been conceived encouraged by this cultural background.

The show's quality was par with most other top shows of the time. It was made to appeal to wide range of audiences, so the plot wasn't so complex, but prominently featured super powers of Wonder Woman. Lynda Carter was absolutely believable as Wonder Woman, and there was no other actor of the time who could have played the role asides from her.

The show is a sweet relic from the '70s along with the likes of the Incredible Hulk, Bionic Woman etc.. It was made in pre-cable TV era when science fiction type program wasn't as ubiquitous as today, and nicely filled the niche. It was an interesting and dramatic show that brought excitement to the audience.

It would probably be difficult to make another Wonder Woman series with as much believability if they can't find a second Lynda Carter to fill the role.
