Wonder Woman comes back for a Second Tour of Duty
12 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Return Of Wonder Woman" was the second season premiere as well as the change of networks from ABC to CBS and updated the show from its 1940s World War II era to then present day 1970s. The movie premiere paid a small homage to the ABC version, but lost some of its charm along the way. Gone was the affection Wonder Woman had for Steve Trevor as her new sidekick would be his son, Steve Trevor, Jr. Also, the villains weren't as fun or as threatening as the Nazis were during the ABC run. Dr. Solano is the villain in this episode and is planning a terrorist plot to divert a military delivery of nuclear power to his headquarters. Gone from the ABC show are sidekicks General Blankenship and comic relief Etta Candy, only to be exchanged for stiff upper brass IADC commander Joe Atkinson and the IRAC computer. However, all is not so bleak for the show. Although the season premiere was a weak story, the special effects and Lynda Carter's acting became much better. It also gave Wonder Woman more territory to cover as she became a top-notch IADC government agent. I wish they would've continued the relationship between Wonder Woman and Steve Trevor, but, I believe the show was truly meant to be part of the family hour and any romance in the show was not meant to be. All in all, I found this episode to be fun and watching Wonder Woman become stronger then before, made the action that much better. Plus, I liked the look of her new costume.
