Goofs

There is a World War II flashback in which we see the character Ishida (Yuki Shimoda) and his brother as young boys making their way through an American minefield after escaping from a Japanese internment camp. Wonder Woman comes to rescue them, but instead of wearing her World War II costume, she's wearing her Seventies costume. See more »

Ghosts of World War 2

The Man who could move the World Once again the series returns to the subject of the internment Japanese Americans during WW2, a brave move to do at the time. Interesting scene where we see WW looking at a collection of her own memorabilia dating from the 40s. Here we see WW depowered once more but by her own choice, removing her bracelets and belt to face her foe. A very very strange mind control fetish film based on this clip with WW controlled by Ishida, the opening sequence makes it look like WW is doing the dance from 'Thriller' is available on YouTube. Allegedly there's a goof during this ep where you can actually glimpse one of Lynda Carter's stunt doubles in the background with WW in the foreground but I've never been able to spot it during numerous rewatches. One thing that is obvious though is that when we see WW in the WW2 flashback she's wearing her 1970s era costume. Of course maybe she changed it before the end of WW2 so it's not necessarily an anachronism.

Here we have a sympathetic villain rather than the usual 2-D baddie and the series is probably better for it. 6/10
