Wonder Woman – Season One, Episode 13: “Bushwackers”

Ahhh, that title does NOT mean what you think it does. No mafiosos are attempting to kill any former presidents. A bushwacker is in fact, an outlaw who swore allegiance to neither side during the Civil War and united in bands to prey on both sides. So, who are the bushwackers in this episodes? The […]

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? I know, I am a 13-year-old. But COME […]

Wonder Woman – Season 1, Episode 11: “Judgement From Outer Space, Part II”

Will Wonder Woman convince Andros that Earth deserves to live? Will Andros get his Unfortunate (but Powerful) Neckwear back from the Nazis?  Was this episode a lot of filler and was probably supposed to be one 90-minute episode instead of a two-parter? The answer to these questions and more as we recap “Judgement from Outer Space, […]

Wonder Woman – Season 1, Episode 10: “Judgement from Outer Space, Part 1”

Whoo hoo! I love an alien-testing-Earth scenario and here’s one of my faves! Watch as Andros visits Earth and Wonder Woman has to convince him humanity is worth saving (HINT: they probably aren’t … cats, dogs, ducks, dolphins, etc. — I’ll fight to the death for their right to flourish in the universe, but human […]

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 […]

Wonder Woman – Season 1, Episode 8: “The Pluto File”

The dad from The Brady Bunch as a suave terrorist? Dr. Bellows as a scientist who creates earthquakes? The Bubonic Plague? Oh, my we are in an oddly prescient episode of Wonder Woman today. Shall we dive in? At a secret testing facility, Dr. Bellows from I Dream of Jeannie is setting off explosions to […]

Wonder Woman – Season 1, Episode 7: “Wonder Woman vs. Gargantua”

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! The captions tell us we are in Nazi-held Africa and […]

Wonder Woman — Season One, Episode 6; “The Feminum Mystique, Part II”

After the build-up of last week’s introduction to Drusilla/Wonder Girl, this week, we dive right into the action as we wrap up “The Feminum Mystique, Part II!” Younger readers may not be aware of The Feminine Mystique, the 1963 book by Betty Friedan, which is recognized as helping kick off the second wave of feminism […]
