Quotes

David Gurney: Leon's a couple of years older than I am. He missed the draft. We had to close the deal for this land... a couple of weeks before I left. He wrote me every week in Vietnam, telling me how construction was coming. I always had a letter from Leon in my pocket. Till I was killed.

The Finale

"The Phantom of the Roller Coaster Parts 1 and 2"

I had no idea what to expect with this episode. Since it was a two-parter, I knew it would be slower and allow for a lot more character development, so I was happier for that. I'd have hated for the finale to be just a 45 minutes rush as the end of possibly one of the best TV shows ever (That is just my opinion) It's scary to see Lynda Carter play her iconic role for the last time and since the show was never allowed to have a proper swansong, it feels off not to give her and Lyle Waggoner their own farewells. But, alas, the show wasn't really cancelled, more allowed to die off peacefully, which I suppose is a sign that the network didn't want to cut the show short or get rid of it definitely. Regardless of the choice made, the character of Wonder Woman has a legacy after Lynda left her mark on the role and made the character more popular as a result. Good on you, girl. Anyway,the story is about a supposed phantom that lurks in the bowels of an amusement park and a businessman is hoping to exploit this, he wantsthe owner to give up rights for the park so that the newer businessman(A man called Fynch) can take over. Of course, the IADC have been on his case for three years and are on the verge of snuffing him out. Diana heads into the zone and searches for clues as to where he might be and who the mysterious phantom is. It's better that this is a two-part story, as it feels like it needs to be this long and flesh out its story. It never feels padded or trying too hard to impress, in fact, the villain is a little hammy, but he's played by someone who takes the role seriously and it feels serious. Serious Wonder Woman over silly is usually give or take (Sometimes the ham is so OTT that I just give up and let loose my expectations, which often gives way to more enjoyment) but I think this is still very fun to watch. Lynda looks fabulous in her WW gear for the very last time and I genuinely got a little teary when the story ended. It may have been the end of the show, but Lynda will always be Wonder Woman. Part 1: 7/10 Part 2:9/10 Overall: 10/10
