People say the 50's were the Golden Age of TV.Since I wasn't around then too me it was the late 70's early 80's.You knew the stars you knew everybody.Now id this show was to be done it would be like who cares? We don't know most of the people on TV nowadays anyways

Linda Carter was on Two and a half men a few weeks back and she had a lesbian three way insinuated at the end of the show as she came out of Alan's Nieces room.Yep she played herself on that episode and she is still hot

CBS felt the show would be a better fit with their own programming if they went a little less "campy" than the 5th Columnists, Nazi Aces, saboteurs, evil baroness', and feminist pontifications of the ABC version. I personally thought it was a nice move as such '70's main-stays as the tweed mafia, James Bondian super spies and alien invasions gave a lot more variety to Wonder Woman's adventures than just fighting Nazi's.

It also helped side-step the big question: If Diana had an invisible plane that could carry her deep into enemy territory (and frequently did), why not just take an early coffee-break shuttle over to Berlin and kick the $#!+ out of Hitler so they could call off the war and go home?

They moved the show to modern times for the second season because it cost less to produce.

Steve is the originals son but Diana is over a thousand years old...

50s TV got the ball rollin, but was more or less radio shows with moving pictures. I'd argue that the real golden age was the 60s thru early 70s...so many new ideas. After that everything is derivative or simply playing with or deconstructing conventions established the era before, usually with some pretention or icky message. There are shining exceptions, but the motherload of gold still came from the 60s

I wasn't around then, but was raised on local uhf programming... and better for it. If only reruns of say Beverly hillbillies were as plentiful as reruns of 2 1/2 men for the young minds of today... sigh...

A classic episode tonight boys and girls!

Not only were we treated to the truly terrible musical stylings of Dick Van Patten and a blink and you miss it appearance by the future ex-Mrs. Michael Crichton, Anne-Marie Martin (in her Eddie Benton days), but we also saw the first use of Wonder Woman's classic ballet inspired spin-transformation.

Tune in next week for Debra Wingers first appearance as a strangely butch TV version of Wonder Girl.

lol omg Bobby Van was the bad guy in this episode..He guest starred on most shows in the 70's.Plus I was wondering when we would see her famous spin with the explosion from what they had been showing.

Hey, let's not forget one of my all-time favorite actors, John Saxon as Captain Radl. Of course he'd probably be better recognized as Det. Thompson, the father of Heather Langenkamp's character in the Nightmare on Elm Street movies (also appearing as himself in Wes Craven's New Nightmare) or my personal favorite, the Han Soloesque Roper from Bruce Lee's Enter the Dragon. If you're a true TV geek, you'll also recognize him as Dr. Dolenz' first evil robot, and a precursor to the Fembots, on the Six Million Dollar Man.

Not quite as obvious, but still interesting is Paul Shenar as Lieutenant Wertz, who might be recognized as Alejondo Sosa from Scarface.

Also, according to legend, Debra Winger so hated her role as Wonder Girl that she spent all the money she made from the gig buying her way out of a contract she signed that would've made her the lead in a Wonder Woman spin-off. Of course, the fact Wonder Woman was cancelled after only a handful of episodes makes it seem unlikely ABC would've planned any such spin-off making it more than likely the rumor was just another Hollywood fish story.

In any case, another attempt at an ersatz Wonder Girl would be made in Season 2's backdoor pilot for "The Girl from Ilandia."

ABC ran the first Season of 13 episodes, then when they neglected to pick it up for a full season order (to this day ABC has never formally cancelled Wonder Woman), CBS snatched it up for another two Seasons.

I'm kind of sorry this never made it to series. Their were some interesting ideas in play. I especially liked the multiple secret identities thing (an idea used in the old "The Shadow" stories).

I would've loved to see how the show played out, but a series focusing on a female action hero won't be catching any breaks in today's Hollywood.

For whatever reason they skipped the two-parter (originally a TV movie) that explained the transition to modern times.

Short version: 30+ years after Diana returns to Paradise Island, she meets I.A.D.C. Agent Steve Trevor Jr. (identical son of Steve Trevor from the ABC season). Realizing mankind is still in danger Diana uses a combination of forged documents, Amazon brainwashing, and some late-seventies computer hacking to establish a new identity as an I.A.D.C. agent in order to protect man (and stay close to Steve).

Sure it may sound a little contrived, but it makes about as much since as Oliver's origin from Arrow.

Plus it gave Wonder Woman a chance to fight threats slightly more befitting of a super heroine including: cold-war era spies, domestic terrorists, aliens, mutated scientists, telekinetic samurai, and Martin Mull as a mind control-flute playing 70's pop muscician (who needs Deathstroke when you have an evil Kenny G.?).
