Storyline

After a dogfight with a Nazi plane, U.S. Air Force Steve Trevor crashlands on an uncharted island in the Bermuda Triangle. Paradise Island is inhabited only by women, and their existence has been kept a secret for thousands of years. Learning of the Nazi threat to humanity, the Amazon princess, Diana, is chosen to accompany Trevor back to the United States to battle the Third Reich. Garbed in a skimpy red, white & blue costume and armed with a magic lasso that forces anyone within its grasp to tell the truth, Diana uses her powers as Wonder Woman to battle the forces of evil.

Trivia

The pilot episode was originally presented as a one-shot 90 minute movie. It was entitled "The New Original Wonder Woman" because the producers wanted to make a clear distinction between this very true-to-the-comics adaptation and a previous "Wonder Woman" pilot movie that aired the year before starring Cathy Lee Crosby, which was very loosely based upon the comic book character.

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: [voice-over] In this dark summer of 1942, the onslaught of the Third Reich continues under the leadership of this indecent and corrupt man. His over-trained and blindly obedient army continues to ravish what is left of free Europe.

Great Hera! The New Original Wonder Woman series that aired on ABC and took place during World War II was PHENOMENAL for the times! Lynda Carter was and always will be Wonder Woman as far as I'm concerned. The show was campy as was the original comic yet it remarkably preserved the vision and integrity of the original comic book's creator, William Moulton Marston. That vision was about unlocking the good in all of us, even Nazi's! And it would take a fearless yet gentle Amazon to do the job. It's a shame the show had to be modernized when it got picked up by CBS. Somehow, the 1970's setting didn't have the innocent charm that played out in the 40's version.
