Wonder Woman – Season 1, Episode 12: “Formula 407”

Need some indestructible rubbers? I mean, rubber? Wonder Woman and Steve travel to Buenos Aires to help safely bring the formula for … BWAH HA HA! Why rubber? What on earth makes rubber the material that needs to be super strong? Is it for indestructible birth control? “Rubbers? Hee hee hee!” I know, I am a 13-year-old. But COME ON! Wouldn’t indestructible PAPER be a better idea? indestructible paint? ANYTHING? Yep … those tires are STEEL-HARD RUBBER! We open at a testing ground with the…

Wonder Woman — Season 1, Episode 9: “The Last Of The Two Dollar Bills”

Plastic surgery, a school for learning American customs and counterfeiting money is this week’s Nazi plan to win the war. But my biggest problem with this episode is the poor characterization of Diana and Wonder Woman. And Steve. Heck, not even the extras or the villains are written or directed well. Still, this episode debuts the Tiara Throw® and has some … funky choices in storytelling. Let’s get to it, shall we? “Go-go Tiara Throw®!” A sub off the coast of the North Atlantic can’t…

Ready for some damn, dirty apes? Or maybe just one?  It’s possibly the first season’s craziest episode … and we’ve already seen Wonder Woman win a beauty pageant! Strap into the invisible jet … we are heading to Africa to start this week’s Retro Recap! Dr. Zaius?

Sadly, it’s not a magic whistle from Paradise Island that makes you tell the truth or a feminum…

Oh my! With her magic lasso and belt captured by Fausta, a Nazi who is NOT AT ALL a Wodner Woman as the title implies, it looks like Diana has no way out … and it’s Steve Trevor to the rescue! You can tell she’s evil because of the black cape. Fausta Grables, who she is happy to let you know is a 1936 Olympics winner, heads to a secret Nazi headquarters. I’m not really sure who they were being secretive from in Berlin ……

Wonder Woman – Season 1, Episode 2: “Wonder Woman Meets Baroness von Gunther”

Oh, my! The first regular episode of Wonder Woman is a … bit of a letdown. With the new Not-General Blankenship, the completely unheralded introduction of Etta Candy and the strangest fight scene ever filmed while rolling down a hill, it would have been better if Diana had NEVER met Baroness von Gunther. “Oh, my invisible pearls!” We start at the War Department and Not-General Blankenship is worried. He’s so worried about Steve Trevor falling into a trap. Diana actually Cutches. Her. Pearls. (I’m assuming…
