I have 4 kids ranging in age from 9 down to a newborn but this year for Christmas I was the one screaming and jumping up and down more than any of the kids. When I opened up the Wonder Woman season DVD I almost passed out. I just couldn't believe it. I was a HUGE fan as a kid. I had wonder woman barbie, towels,etc. I used to love to pretend that I was Wonder Woman with all my friends. I even had told my kids all the stories of Wonder Woman that I could remember so that even THEY were excited when they realized they woudl finally get to watch the show and not just hear about it. I don't think my kids knew how to react seeing their mom so hyped about something!!!! When my husband hit play and the Wonder Woman song came on it all came back to me. I was absolutely in heaven!! I was dancing and rocking out to "You're a wonder, Wonder Woman!!!!" All my kids were dancing with me and I was so excited to see my kids being introduced to the greatest tv show of all time! Ok....well that could by my nostalgia from childhood but no matter how hokey this show was (and now as an adult I realize it was pretty hokey) I just don't care. As far as I am concerned Wonder Woman is still the best tv show ever made. I love Lynda Carter. I was such a loyal devoted fan that even when she starred in that one hour show with Lonnie Anderson later in the 80's that got cancelled quickly I still watched the show out of loyalty to Lynda Carter. The show she was in with Lonnie was not a good show but I was a devoted Wonder Woman fan to the end. I hope they come out with every single episode ever made. I will buy every one.

(4.5/5 stars) When I bought this DVD set, I was expecting a really bad TV show from the 70s, in other words a dated series with cornball humor, bad clothing styles and mindless plots. What I found was a delightful action-drama set in World War II with some thought-provoking scripting and the absolutely captivating Lynda Carter. While the villains are clearly identified as such, what is surprising is the manner in which Wonder Woman finds the humanity in each. By attempting to understand why these people do what they do, she essentially tells us that crime is relative and that these people are only subject to acting on human instincts. There is no absolute Good and Evil in this show. We often think of Wonder Woman fighting for the United States government, but in this show she truly does fight for truth and justice, and the US does not escape scrutiny. That is to say, the US, while clearly identified as the Good Guy, is sometimes criticized for certain actions. The episode concerning Japanese internment camps from Season Two is a good example of this. (It is always Wonder Woman who analyzes the situation and, even though she is simply following the script, Lynda Carter is that much more attractive as a result) In addition, Wonder Woman never kills the villains and uses only enough force to prevent their escape. This might come as a disappointment to some, but I found it a very refreshing approach. Instead of torturing people or beating them into submission, she uses her golden "Lasso of Truth" to get them to confess or provide details. I realize this came from the original comic book as well, but it very easily could have been much different in the wrong hands. There is an obvious feminism that runs throughout the series, such as Wonder Woman consistently overpowering men.Read more ›

Born in the early 1970s there are few television shows I remember from that decade - I have fleeting recollections of 'The Rockford Files' and 'Starsky and Hutch.' One television series I do have very vivid memories of is 'Wonder Woman.'

I remember sitting watching the adventures of the Amazonian superhero with my grandfather, gushing with excitement at every cheesy, over-the-top moment of it.

You see in the late 1970s I had two schoolboy crushes on actresses. One was Carrie Fisher as Princess Leia in 'Star Wars' and the other was (Former Miss USA) Lynda Carter in her role as Diana in 'Wonder Woman.'

The day this came out on DVD I rushed out to the local video store to recapture the spirit of my childhood. Nostalgia is a very powerful force and for hours after returning home with my prize I was back in the 1970s, back watching 'Wonder Woman' with my late grandfather and, with adult eyes this time, noting just how ridiculous it was, but oh so enjoyably so.

That's one of the secrets of the shows success - it doesn't take itself seriously at all, and it doesn't expect - or want - its audience to either.

It was remarkable to hear Lynda Carter and Executive Producer Douglas S. Cramer share their memories in the audio commentary that accompanies the pilot. Almost 30 years later the two still share a warmth and strong memories of the groundbreaking show.

Amazing too was the documentary on the third disc of the set titled 'Beauty, Brawn and Bulletproof Bracelets: A Wonder Woman Retrospective' that featured Carter, Cramer and Wonder Woman creator Dr. William Moulton Marsten. I am a big fan of retrospective documentaries (like those that appear on the James Bond DVDs for example), much more so than the featurettes that appear on newer movies.
