21 September 1999 | Eric-62-2
Should Have Stayed In WWII
It's too bad that "Wonder Woman" strayed from its origins after it moved from ABC to CBS. The original ABC episodes were probably some of the best efforts at bringing comic book fun to life. Once the series was moved from its WWII setting to the present, the only thing that improved was Lynda Carter's costume. "Wonder Woman" became too much of a routine type of adventure show and lost its sense of good-natured fun and camp that the WWII episodes served up (and poor Lyle Waggoner became practically non-existent as "Steve Trevor, Jr.")

Still, there is little doubt that Lynda Carter made a lasting impression as Wonder Woman. Her qualities of incredible beauty and wide-eyed innocence enabled her to make the part her own and the reason why we've never seen a big screen adapation of Wonder Woman is because Carter's portrayal still looms large even today.

Trivia

Part of the reason Show Producers chose Lyle Waggoner is that he had proven comedy chops after appearing on "The Carol Burnett Show" for several years; and "Wonder Woman" was originally intended to be a satire; or at least partially tongue in cheek; by the show producer Douglas Kramer who was also the producer on the satiric "Batman".

Goofs

Throughout the first season, secondary characters and extras sport hairstyles and sometimes clothing that looked more from the 1970s, when the series was filmed, than from the 1940s, in which the series was set.


Alternate Versions

Both the ABC pilot episode - "The New Original Wonder Woman" - and the ABC premiere episode that brought the series forward into the 70's - "The Return of Wonder Woman" - originally aired as 90-minute episodes. For syndication, these episodes are often edited down to run in a standard 60-minute time slot. The full version of "The New Original Wonder Woman" is contained on the DVD boxed set of the first season, and the full version of "The Return of Wonder Woman" was included on the second season box set.
