Wonder Woman: The Complete Third Season (DVD)
In the third season of this fun action series based on Charles Moulton's comic book character, Lynda Carter continues her starring role as Wonder Woman, the strong and sexy Amazonian princess who has the strength of Hercules, the wisdom of Athena, the speed of Mercury and the beauty of Aphrodite. Working undercover as the mild and mousey Diana Prince in the U.S. War Department, as assistant to the handsome but trouble-prone Major Steve Trevor (Lyle Waggoner), Wonder Woman traverses the world fighting crime. At the trace of trouble, Diana transforms into Wonder Woman with a trademark twirl, emerging with bulletproof bracelets, a star-spangled suit, a truth-telling lasso, a golden belt that provides amazing strength and an invisible plane. Ready to dole out justice to villains everywhere, Wonder Woman is a force to be reckoned with. She's also easy on the eyes. This season's guest stars include music legend Wolfman Jack.
The Amazon princess returns once again for the third and final season of the wonderfully dated, iconic super series Wonder Woman. These final 24 episodes are the epitome of late-'70s television: high in camp, filled with semi-famous special guest stars, riddled with sexual innuendos, and a showcase for all the trends of the time. This time around Wonder Woman must face, and stop, mind-controlling music in "Disco Devil" (with special guest star Wolfman Jack). On "Skateboard Wiz," Wonder Woman teams up with a skateboarding teen to uncover an illegal gambling ring. Capitalizing on the roller coaster craze, the series finale "The Phantom of the Roller Coater Parts 1 & 2" (with special guest star Ike Eisenmann) has our hero battling surveillance planting spies in the tunnels beneath the "Fun Universe" amusement park. But all kidding aside, Wonder Women still stands the test of time as one of the best comic book television series ever. Its legendary status can be easily be attributed to Lynda Carter and her perfect performance as the beautiful, powerful, and patriotic Amazonian princess. --Rob Bracco
