a pretty good episode in this series
3 May 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

OK, I admit it; Lynda Carter as 'Wonder Woman' played absolute havoc with my hormone-ridden teenage self. It was meant to be 'family viewing' (on a Saturday evening in the UK IIRC) but I am pretty sure that not all the family watched it for the same reasons. I don't think the 'lasso of truth' would be required to work that one out...

Our heroine gets a clumsy/telekinetic sidekick in this episode, and of course wrongs are righted in the usual way. All pretty much what you might expect really; this was one of the last episodes broadcast and perhaps they knew the show wasn't going to carry on into a fourth series; there is just a hint of them going through the motions in a slightly more than usually knowing fashion. I saw this episode again recently and I might have dozed off halfway through... -which in fairness is more of a reflection of me than the show itself.

Now, I might still have been half asleep, but I thought I saw a very young looking (and uncredited) Kevin Spacey as one of the burglars who are (of course) stymied near the end of the episode. He misses out on having his barrel tweaked by Wonder Woman... can't be lucky all the time, I guess. Then again, maybe it wasn't him... but if it wasn't, it must have been his doppelganger...
