He is warned that despite Argentina's stance of neutrality, that there are several who are pro German. Steve brings Diane with him. The Germans sends someone to get the formula before the Americans can get it. When Steve arrives he gets taken by the scientist's daughter. And the German sent to get the formula is aided by the scientist's assistant. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Did You Know?


The title comes from the brand name of the all purpose cleaner Formula 409 which has been manufactured by The Clorox Company since 1957. See more »


Curt Lowens is credited as "S.S. General." But given his gray uniform, shoulder and collar straps, not to mention his command over Major Keller, this is incorrect. He is an Army Field Marshall. See more »


Major Keller: We have had a stroke of good luck. Not only are we going to snatch the formula right out from under the Americans' noses, but they've sent one of their most famous war heroes here to pick it up: Major Steve Trevor. We'll take him back with us.

simple story and not that much of wonder woman
22 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

An Argentine scientist discovers how to make rubber as strong as steel. Of course the Allies want the formula (refering to the title) but also the Nazis want the formula.

Steve and Diana are off to Buenos Aires to go to professor Moreno to get the formula. From there on it's a lot of blah blah and not so many action. You really have to wait until almost half the episode before Steve and wonder woman are captured.

On part of the acting no problem and all okay wasn't it for the fact that there isn't that much of wonder woman in it. When it does they added new sounds to her fighting for example when throwing away soldiers you here sounds.

In the meanwhile the professors daughter Lydia is being captured by the Nazis to be sure that Moreno gives formula 407. But not without wonder woman.

What did notice me was the fact that their is said that Argentina do love Nazis, a reference towards the fact that Nazis ran to Argentina once the Third Reich collapsed. Not the first time that such thing was said.

Towards the end we go again to the beach as in so many episodes and we do see old footage from other episodes (the U-boat). And the airport of Buenos Aires was just a house, really?

Not camp or cheesy (well maybe the grenades at the end) but a simple storyline with not that much of wonderstuff going on.
