Definitely watch season 1 first! It's such a great way to escape from the humdrum of daily life. Of course, there are many silly, dated, nonbelievable, and campy aspects in all shows (including the theme song lyrics: "in your satin tights, fighting for our rights"), but that's part of the fun of watching Wonder Woman. Enjoy!
I was a little too young to watch this show when it was first on, but I've found reruns and grown to love it. Yes, it has a certain cheese factor, but it's fun. Lynda Carter is wonderful as our heroine. I honestly can't picture anyone else in the roll. And Lyle Waggoner is great as the sidekick. While some of the special effects are cheesy, others hold up remarkable well today.
Unfortunately, the first season isn't quite as good as the season that followed. Set in World War II, it seems cheesier then most. Part of it is the over abundance of the camp factor. And part of it is the dialog is rather poor at times. This is especially true when Wonder Woman/Diana Prince is given "women power" lines. The lectures just don't come off well. Still, there is stuff to enjoy here, and the guest stars are impressive. They include Cloris Leachman, Red Buttons, Robert Reed, Dick van Patten, Debra Winger in her first credited roll, and Roy Rogers.
Any fan of Wonder Woman will love this set. It contains the extended pilot plus all 13 episodes for the first season. These are all the World War II era episodes. The episodes are spread out over 3 double-sided discs. The picture (original full screen) looks sharp most of the time.Read more ›
