When Diana walks to the stolen truck her arms go from folded to hands-on-hips between shots. See more »


Darrell: If Gladys swims maybe 20 miles an hour, it'll take her all morning just for her to go back and forth in a ten mile square. So if the Pacific Ocean is... 6 thousand miles wide, times 8 or 10 thousand miles long, that's 16 million square miles.
Dr. Sylvia Stubbs: Darrell, stop thinking.
Darrell: Well that's worse than looking for a needle in a haystack! I mean, I figure it would take about, eh, 10 thousand years for Bluebeard to find Gladys, and that's without any days off.

Swimsuit time!
25 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Much like sharks (which also feature in this ep) dolphins very popular in this period and this story owes an obvious debt to the film 'The Day of the Dolphin'. Environmental concerns also a major issue of the day. We see Wonder Woman demonstrate another new power which we haven't seen before, the ability to fire some sort of energy ray from her tiara. Lot's of stock footage once more although surprisingly given the subject matter no submarines, the stuff with the shark (a Tiger shark I think?) is scary stuff and you see it a lot in other shows of the period (even in one ep of Lassie I think?). Wonder Woman's ability to talk with the animals once again featured. 7/10
