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.

In the comics, Etta Candy was a college student who met Diana Prince while in the hospital for an appendectomy. She became Wonder Woman's friend after she got well. In the series, of course, she was a WAC working in the War Department. Also in the comics, Diana Prince was a US Army 2nd lieutenant working as the secretary to Colonel Darnell, the head of Military Intelligence. This was changed to a US Navy WAVE and Steve Trevor's secretary in the series. The character of General Blankenship was created specifically for the series. In the comics, Steve Trevor and Diana Prince reported to Colonel Darnell, who became General Darnell after World War II. 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.
