Format: DVD
The third and final season of Wonder Woman is ready and waiting for sci-fi fans everywhere to enjoy. In this great colorful season, 22 episodes (two of which are 2-parters) spotlight the Amazing Amazon from Paradise Island. As with season two, season three continues Wonder Woman's (aka Diana Prince) adventures in Washington D.C. working as a secret agent alongside the dashing Steve Trevor (Lyle Waggoner). The episodes included in this set are:

My Teenage Idol Is Missing - Singer Leif Garrett guest stars as a teen singer who is kidnapped for extortion. His agent finds a double to stand in for the missing singer's concert while Wonder Woman tries to track him and his kidnappers down. BONUS: Lynda Carter commentary

Hot Wheels - When a Rolls Royce is stolen with a secret microfilm, Wonder Woman whirls into action.

The Deadly Sting - Professional football tampering causes the IADC to become involved.

The Fine Art Of Crime - Actor Roddy McDowell guest-stars as an art sculptor with a terrible knack of thievery. Will Wonder Woman be able to see through his deception?

Disco Devil - A disco owner is hypnotizing key officials. Diana Prince is soon on his trail.

Formicida - A strange woman environmentalist who controls ants terrorizes industrial companies who do not meet her eco-standards. Possessing ant-like abilities herself, she proves to be a match for even Wonder Woman!

Time Bomb - A fortune seeker from the future comes to the present to strike a name for herself. Wonder Woman and another future traveler try to stop her before catastrophy ensues. TRIVIA: This is the first time actors Ted Shackelford and Joan Van Ark work together, who are two of the best known actors in the later evening series Knots Landing.

This last season of Wonder Woman continued the Amazing Amazon's adventures in 1970's America. 22 episodes comprise the 1978-79 season.

Notable episodes include "My Teenage Idol is missing" where Wonder Woman helps to crack the kidnapping-switching of a teenage singing idol with an impostor, while "Formicida" has Wonder Woman go against another super powered woman who takes nature preservation to dangerous extremes through her insect control: bugs are being dispatched to stop the manufacture of a deadly pesticide because this person does not believe the pesticide is good for the Earth. This latter villian is different from some of the other people Wonder Woman has faced because good initial intentions only became warped through extremes.

Wonder Woman also faces a similar ethical issue in "The man who could not die" because she must save a newly-invincible man from being captured and exploited by dangerous groups. Having superpowers ultimately does not mean much if you are then vulnerable to exploitation from being a public (and 'everyday') citizen. Her secret identity as "Diana Prince" might be all that keeps Wonder Woman from facing similar peril.

"A date with doomsday" eerily foreshadows the then-upcoming AIDS pandemic. Wonder Woman must prevent a virus from spreading around the globe. The all-critical plot catch being this deadly virus was first created in a laboratory and the HIV virus is rumored to have been created in similar conditions. I wonder if anybody in this series's scripting department knew anybody affected with what became HIV when this was written?

Unlike a lot of other shows past and present, the series production team knew when to end the show lest their product become stale.

14 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Twilight Comments on August 30, 2005
Format: DVD
As the title of my review suggests, this DVD compilation is not the best - it definetly could have been better. Sure its wonderful to have the entire third season of episodes on DVD, but I wish Warner would have taken care in presenting the series EXACTLY as it appeared when released on television. All - in all it is the same. Again the closing credits have the current warner brothers logo instead of the original red labelled one. Most importantly is the opening credits. The sound is out of sync for several of the epidoes which is ridiculous as it was never that way. The opening credits in season three were supposed to have 'The New Adventures of Wonder Woman' against a blue background (a few episodes on this DVD are correct), but most here are black which only appeared in the episode 'The Man who made volcanos'. Luckily the stories themselves are unaffected otherwise this set would have been ruined.

I would have also liked to have the opening teasers for both 'The Boy who knew her secret part two' and 'the phantom of the roller coaster part two' which are missing on this box set. What a pity.

I know the stories are presented as they were aired, but for story continuity they should have placed the 'phantom of the roller coaster before the 'boy who knew her secrets' concluding with 'the man who would not die' in which Diana Prince moves to los Angeles with a new life. Lyle Waggonner is not in the credits any longer, assuming something has happened to Steve Trevor Jr.

The extra features are welcome, but I wish the directors would have given some incentive for Lynda to give new and intersting comments than content that already exists in seaon one and two box sets.
