Did You Know?


While Diana is tied and gagged to the chair the gag in her mouth appears to be tied tightly one moment and then loosely tied the next. Then it goes back to being tight again then later loose. This pattern happens several times. See more »


Diana Prince: You really are insane.
Mason Steele: We all have our passions. Mine is to see that democracy outlives every other form of government. And the others, they play the lead in a magnificent, cosmic tragedy!

War of the Worlds
18 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Starships are coming Ridiculous at first glance this ep makes a lot more sense when you think that the events of 'Mind robbers from outer space' took place in the public eye, the existence of alien life is common knowledge in the DC universe. That said the 'villain who explains the dastardly scheme before attempting to kill the hero in an unnecessarily elaborate fashion' is just terrible as Austin Powers points out to great comic effect. Ultra-right wing baddies who were common in the 70s, self-doubting America looking inwards to itself for evil after the debacle of Vietnam, Watergate and the Church Committee hearings into the CIA/FBI and their various dodgy actions during the Cold War (would love to have seen Steve Trevor hauled before that inquisition, "So Mr Trevor, is Wonder Woman's lariat of truth admissible as evidence under the constitution or is it an infringement of civil rights comparable to waterboarding?") . The fear of Red China (before it was replaced by capitalist-but-still-totalitarian-China) very much to the fore and the controversy surrounding Nixon's detente towards it certainly a big issue. Once again we end with Lynda Carter giving her trademarked huge smile of happiness, does anyone else do that with such radiant conviction?. Not a bad ep per se but it seems the series is still trying to ride the wave of sci-fi enthusiasm that followed Star Wars (WW alumni Roddy McDowell voicing Disney's The Black Hole etc).
