Much, much better
8 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Fine Art of Crime MUCH, MUCH better in every possible way! The return of Roddy McDowell as a very different character to who we've seen before and he's excellent. The return of Harold Farnum is less welcome although it does show that even if this is the season that reinvents itself there's still a link with 2 and still lots of fun to be had. Quite a clever concept and one that whips the conquered-superheroines/ASFR fetishists into a real frenzy with WW surrendering, obeying her new masters commands by assuming the classic superheroine pose and giving a big, big smile as she's transformed into a living statue. Even when she shows McDowell's character her own bracelets she looks as though she's gleefully raising her arms in surrender. Again the footage isn't half as interesting as the re-edited clips on Youtube and the comments people leave underneath it, suggesting that she should have remained frozen and that's how they should have ended the season/series! Myself and a million other little girls would have cried ourselves to sleep in our WW outfits if that were the case!

Of course our girl comes good but then we always knew she would.

That said I don't think Lynda has ever looked more beautiful and that's really saying something. Frankly I think female beauty peaked with either Lynda Carter in 1978 or Marge Simpson crossed with Pamela Anderson in her prime. If you ever watch Saturday Night Fever even John Travolta's character has a picture of Wonder Woman in this pose stuck to his bedroom mirror as he's getting ready to go out, one of the iconic posters of the 70s, up there with Farah Fawcett in her red swimsuit or the tennis player (ahem) scratching her hip. The villains are a lot cleverer and a great deal more dominant/charming than the normal moronic thugs and (seemingly) defeat her with brain instead of brawn, these guys actually have some character and pose a serious threat. But her plan is pretty brilliant, knowing that she'll only get to meet the real mastermind if her comes to the museum opening and he's only going to do that if he thinks that he's defeated her. Also a funny little moment when she knocks McDowell flying and as he comes to he's horrified to find a disembodied wax hand in his face. 9/10 very good, let's have more like this!
