Lynda Carter Sings
17 May 2014 | by (Haddonfield, IL) – See all my reviews

Lynda Carter performs two songs from her album "Portrait" on this episode, "Want To Get Beside You" and "Toto". Diana poses as an unknown pop singer named Kathy to get the inside track on a record label extortion operation. It seems the label's number one big selling artist has died, and some bad guys who undoubtedly have phones in their cars are trying to blackmail the label by holding the master tapes of his now-final album for ransom. That crazy IADC, you'd think they wouldn't be all that interested in an extortion racket going on at a little ole record label, but....OH MY GOD, is that RICK SPRINGFIELD?? Yes. That working class dog appears in this as one member of far-out rock trio Anti-matter, who appear to have ingested nothing but cocaine for the past five days.

You know what could possibly be wrong with an episode like this? Not enough Wonder Woman. It's ages before we get a transformation in this one. At one point before a commercial break, a man sees Diana's shadow as she twirls, teasing us that her secret is about to be not so secret anymore. But alas, in the middle of what was sure to be the longest twirl in the series, she notices she's not alone and halts, leading me to wonder what the hell that sneaky spy thinks she was doing spinning around in the hall like that. These young musicians these days, with their funny white powder!

So yeah yeah, in the middle of all this Diana Prince action and Lynda Carter singing, there's some obligatory Wonder Woman action, including an amazing sequence where she puts her wonder eardrums to work to turn off a speaker with a serious case of feedback. Who knew she had THAT ability?

With a little more Wonder Woman, this could have been one of the best of the series, but it's still a pretty good ep.
