Hurray for Lynda Commentary!
5 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

My teenage idol is missing

Reputedly the 3rd series is where the big changes take place. Less and less Steve with one ep having none of him at all, a more serious WW who leaves behind many of the features we've come to associate with her (no Amazons, no invisible plane etc), the series confident enough to now continue on it's own mythology. Also less and less of Diana in glasses and her hair looks slightly different. Must say I'd never heard of Leif Garrett before watching this, unfortunately according to Wiki he seems to have sunk into heroin addiction since. Lynda's commentary is great, she seems to be full of warmth for him. She seems wistful for the way she used to look back then (don't worry Lynda, you're still a fox) and points out that we see WW in her cape once more, conveniently covering up the WW stuntwoman's harness as she climbs up the side of the building in true Batman style. Motorbiking WW again and Lynda admits that whilst she rode the bike on screen she left the jumps to her stuntwoman, the studio obviously having learnt their lesson from Anschluss 77. Beyond that we have young girls obsessed with pop stars again as we saw in The Pied Piper. Interestingly Lynda thinks that WW's life is incomplete because she doesn't have children? 7/10 but better with Lynda's commentary, wish we had more
