Editorial Reviews

"In your satin tights / Fighting for your rights / And the old Red, White, and Blue!... / Wonder Woman!" Could anyone who grew up in the '70s ever forget that super-catchy theme song? Originally packaged as the female version of the Batman TV show (producer Stanley Ralph Ross penned 32 of the caped crusader's episodes), Wonder Woman ended up redefining the campy, comic book genre. The primetime show immediately became a social and cultural phenomenon, attracting a wide audience that continued to tune in to America's favorite socially progressive superheroine.

Looking back on it now, it is easy to see the attraction of this unique show that oozed '70s culture, but was set in the 1940s. While trying to stop a Nazi plane from reaching the U.S., Major Steve Trevor (Lyle Waggoner) is shot down, landing on mythical Paradise Island. The uncharted island is the hidden home to the lost tribe of eternally young Amazon women. The Amazons take in the Major and nurse him back to health. During his recovery he attracts the sympathy and interest of Princess Diana (Lynda Carter, former Miss USA 1973) who is intrigued by the man from the mainland and his tales of the evil Nazis. She decides she must follow the Major back to the U.S. and join the forces of good against the tyranny of evil. So begins the saga of the beautiful Amazon Wonder Woman, armed with super strength, bulletproof bracelets, and the unbreakable, "truth-telling," golden lasso. What sets season 1 apart from the two subsequent seasons is that the pilot and each of the 13 episodes take place during World War II, corresponding to the original comic stories. In this season we see Wonder Woman battle spies, uncover Fausta the Nazi Wonder Woman, stop thieves trying to steal the secret substance of Amazonian power (Feminum), wrestle a Nazi-trained circus gorilla, and rescue an interplanetary visitor held captive by the Third Reich--all of which are priceless.

Included with the pilot episode is an extremely fun commentary track by Lynda Carter and producer Douglas C. Kramer. Also added on the DVD set is the making-of featurette "Beauty, Brawn and Bulletproof Bracelets." Yes, it is very campy, cheesy, dated, and filled with double entendres and subtle innuendos. But below the surface, there is something special that makes the show timeless and a pleasure to watch. Calling Wonder Woman: The Complete First Season a time capsule would be an understatement. But a time capsule in the most wonderful sense of the phrase. --Rob Bracco

Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm 32 years old and this was the best Christmas ever! December 26, 2004
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A marvel from DC August 11, 2006
Format:DVD
(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 ›

Format:DVD
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.
