Storyline

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 ...

Trivia

During the period when the show was set in the 1940s, D.C. Comics, the publisher of the Wonder Woman comics, decided to do a tie in with the series by setting the stories in the self titled Wonder Woman comic book as well as her appearances in "World's Finest Comics" in the '40s as well. However, this was the Earth 2 version of Wonder Woman. The modern Earth-1 Wonder Woman still appeared in the "Justice League of America" comics. Also, when the show switched to the modern day, the stories in "Wonder Woman" and "Worlds Finest" followed suit and moved her back to the present day. See more »

Goofs

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 »

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.
