Meet the United States' secret and most beautiful weapon in the fight against tyranny: Wonder Woman! Season One of Wonder Woman (the Pilot Movie and 13 regular episodes) retains the World War II era of the super heroine's early comic book adventures. Also captured is the exuberant tone of a comic book come to screen life as the warrior princess, empowered by her sense of a woman's worth and by the mysterious substance Feminum that's found only on her remote native isle, battles a succession of Nazi baddies. Former Miss USA Lynda Carter stars as the heroine who hides her identity behind the oversized glasses of a War Department functionary. But when duty and danger call, she transforms. And the wonders never cease.

Lynda plays the heroine with a perfect balance of innocence and toughness. She's powerful but never comes across as anything less than feminine--and therein lies the show's lesson. It's a lesson that's apparently since been lost. These days it is a virtual given that in order for female character to prove her worth, her strength must be displayed tangibly, usually by besting the male characters in as many areas as possible, including--however illogically--combat. Yet here was a character who physically WAS strong but that was never the most important representation of her strength. Wonder Woman's true strength came primarily from her convictions, compassion, intelligence, and morally. She didn't have the need to dominate men because she knew that a sense of superiority is what led to inequality in the first place. And she didn't need to give up what it means to be a woman in order to be a role model for equality, because equality was never meant for all people to become alike; rather, it's about fairness in spite of one another's inherent differences.
This show sprang from a time when women were first being given the opportunity to prove they could be the principle star of a successful series.Read more ›
Lynda Carter was, is and will always be the only Wonder Woman for me. This show was so popular that many well known actors and actresses wanted roles on the show as villains. This DVD set is well done with an amazing picture and good sound given the age of the original material. The artwork on the exterior and interior of the set is well done but unfortunately the 3 disc set is double sided. While I'm not a fan of the double sided discs I guess it keeps the cost of the set down, so it's not really a big deal.
Included in this DVD set are the original pilot and the remaining 13 season one episodes plus an interesting documentary of Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman and the show itself. Diana Prince with those ugly glasses was still stunning and Wonder Woman was absolutely beautiful. But she didn't wear a mask, so how come Major Trevor never put the two together as smart as he was? Wonder Woman season one is a must have for all 1970's TV fans.Read more ›
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 ›
