Wonder Woman – Season 1. Episode 4: “Beauty On Parade”

Whoo-hoo! This one is  … well, perhaps “Sexism On Parade” would be a better title. It’s as if someone from the network went in to the writer’s room and said, “What’s better than a star-spangled bathing suit? A whole bunch of 70s-style bathing suits pretending to be 1940s-appropriate!” Her talent was lassoing people. With magic. Buckle up those invisible seatbelts — here we go! Ultimately, this extremely convoluted scheme revolves around making the rising star, General Eisenhower, take a different route to a secret meeting…

Wonder Woman – Season One, Episode 3: “Fausta, The Wonder Woman”

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!

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…

Wonder Woman – Season 1, Episode 1: “Pilot”

Even the logo is perfection. “In your satin tights/fighting for your rights and the old red white and blue …” Not that I wasn’t already glued to the TV screen when Wonder Woman debuted in 1975, but the theme song nailed me firmly in place there for the next three years. I’d cut my super hero teeth on Shazam and Isis, and reruns of Batman and Superman … but nobody ever got super heroes right for me (as the 11-year-old expert I was) like Wonder…

Five Things I Love That I Need To Break Up WIth

In trying to make life simpler, more zen and spacious, I am trying to do away with clutter both internal and external. Sure, it wasn’t easy to let go of my entire run of 1990s Wonder Woman issues (I seriously don’t know how they thought that bicycle-pants/leather jacket look was going to stand the test of time), but I’m coming to some realizations. I am in love. And I am in love with some things that any relationship expert would tell me to break up with post-haste.…
