Did You Know?


Lynda Carter flexes her vocal talents by singing a couple songs, one from her solo record album "Portrait". The music centered episode also spoofed then current artists by having the Judge Reinhold and Sarah Purcell characters resemble the group Captain & Tennille and showing the Kiss look-alike band "AntiMatter".

Wonder Woman Vs The Sound of Music

"Amazon Hot Wax"

I have no idea why the episode is called this, but boy is it a cool title. In fact, this episode seems to be a fan-favourite amongst many Wonder Woman fans, and I would be lying if I said that I didn't see how it is a classic.

I like the idea of Diana Prince letting her hair down a bit more by singing (Also physically doing so makes her look absolutely beautiful, without the tiara) and does Lynda Carter have a great singing voice? Yes, she does! She sings two songs here, but I'm glad that they're not the focus of the episode, just a helpful hint to tell the story.

The real point of this blatant product placement of two songs on Lynda's album at the time, is to show that Diana will go under cover to find out why an album seller is being extorted. That's right, the music industry is being attacked by evil doers. No plot is too ridiculous on this show.

With the aid of some old band members and her super powers, Wonder Woman is able to uncover some mysteries at work in the music industry, rescue some loons and stop some loons in the one story. It feels like a fun ride, while watching it, it really did. The music may be brilliant, but it's only a small part of the tale and Lynda is just unstoppable as a more serious Wonder Woman in one of the better episodes in this season.

I also like that the ending of the story hits a good bit of realism. Whenever Diana has to reveal that she's been under an alias the whole time and fooled someone that trusted and grew fond of her, the story hits a few heartstrings and pulls.

Speaking of Lynda's singing voice, she's still a pretty darn good singer, though, she clearly has the potential to be a great Goddess of smooth music. Steve Trevor isn't really all that prominent again, so you can see that he still has nothing to do, yet. It has just enough Wonder Woman and a fun feel to it. It's, by far, my favourite episode of Season 3.

I give the tale 9/10.
