Apparently there was nothing to say about season three

The documentary on the Wonder Woman season one DVD set "Beauty, Brawn, and Bulletproof Bracelets: A Wonder Woman Retrospective" was all about the history of Wonder Woman and the World War Two setting of the first series. The one that came with season two, "Revolutionizing a Classic: From Comic Book to Television - The Evolution of Wonder Woman from Page to Screen" noted the changes made to the series as it moved into the Seventies, and featured more comic book artists than people who actually worked on the show. For the third and last season, despite the use of a lot of well picked clips from the series, the documentary "Wonder Woman: The Ultimate Feminist Icon" doesn't really cover the TV show at all, instead focusing on the impact Wonder Woman has had as a feminist.

Naturally, this time around there are no men allowed on screen, just Lynda and four female authors who have either written about Wonder Woman and/or her status as a feminist. So we get a lot of praising of the unique mother daughter situation between Princess Diana and Hyppolyta and the way Seventies shows had much stronger women than those broadcast a decade earlier. Lynda proposes she was being a feminist by nature long before she even knew what the word meant and that Wonder Woman was sexy not because she used it, but just because she looked great. Also I really like the notion that WW has been juggling two lives (the heroine and the secret identity) longer than most women have in real life.

But for fans of the TV series, there is really not much of interest here. We learn absolutely nothing about the making of the last season other that it was 'broadcast in the Seventies'. One thing that is worth mentioning is that amongst the many clips from the third season, there is a perfectly timed split screen sequence featuring four different spinning transformations. The editor, who remains uncredited as do all behind the scenes personal, deserves some kudos for that one. Also, Lynda Carter mentions the word 'DVD' twice, and each time she pronounces it like it's some newfangled invention that has only just been explained to her. Methinks she's been spending some time on Paradise Island again (and why shouldn't she).
