Disco UFOs over Pittsburg! (sic)
8 May 2014 | by (Haddonfield, IL) – See all my reviews

Notes while watching "The Starships Are Coming":

  • That is one seriously disco UFO. It's totally Michael Zager Band.

  • WZAB in Pittsburg? I think they mentioned the Allegheny Mountains, so

I'm pretty sure this isn't Pittsburg, California. They spelled the name of the city wrong!

  • Diana's scotch vest is DA BOMB.

  • We see the IADC Zoom at least THREE times, and in very close

succession I might add. Someone wasn't paying attention, or else they were doing lots of coke in the editing room and this made total sense.

  • Lynda Carter's delivery when she hears the villain's master plan and

says "You really are insane"--BRILLIANT.

  • The IADC is at the top of technology. Steve's desk has everything

except an espresso machine and the best they can come up with is a 13" TV to watch doomsday on.

  • Good god... when the final countdown is halted, it's totally a VHS

tape on pause!!

  • Is Bobbie the new Eve? What happened to Eve, anyway? Did the aliens

get her, too? Or is Eve's disappearance from the show (as well as Joe's) supposed to have taken place during one of those off camera important events that we don't know about? Kind of like when Diana talks about people we don't know as if she has a long history with them, one we've never seen on the show? The "Wonder Woman" universe seems to imply there are numerous adventures we DON'T see happening, and that's just teasing.

  • Oh wow that actor playing the General is the same actor who played

Andros in a REAL alien episode in Season One! MIND WARP.

  • I wonder where this flying saucer battle stock footage came from?

  • Diana delivers the freeze-frame smile while implying she's become so

intimate with this week's characters that she will be invited to their wedding. Now see HERE is a relationship we see forming! Hopefully they were planning in Season Four for Diana to revisit them and help them work through their marriage problems while facing off against a local supervillain. And staying in constant contact with Steve Trevor by phone.
