Synopsis


The premise of the ABC fantasy adventure series Wonder Woman is firmly established in the two-hour opener (telecast in 1975, just before the debut of the series proper), which is largely set on Paradise Island, home of a tribe of super-powered (and very attractive) Amazons. Played by 5'10" former "Miss World U.S.A." Lynda Carter, Wonder Woman is the island's princess, her great power emanating largely from her golden bracelets and belt, which have been fashioned from a magical substance called Feminum. Although WWII is raging elsewhere, Paradise Island is hidden from mortal view -- until American war hero Steve Trevor (Lyle Waggoner) crash-lands on the island. Remaining with Amazons to fight off invading Nazis, Steve makes quite an impression on Wonder Woman, and after he returns stateside she shows up in the guise of Diana Prince, a USAF yeoman assigned as Steve's assistant. The rest of Wonder Woman's inaugural season consists of irregularly scheduled "specials," each seen in a two-part format on consecutive weeks. In the early adventures, Wonder Woman meets her match in the form of Fausta (Lynda Day George), a "superwoman" created by the Nazis; W.W.'s sister Drusilla (played by a very young Debra Winger) makes her first appearance in "The Feminum Mystique"; a Nazi-generated gorilla places the free world in jeopardy; a friendly space alien (played by Tim O'Connor) tries to warn W.W. of the imminent destruction of Earth; and on a trip to Hollywood, our heroine finds that there are even fifth columnists in Tinseltown. While the limited-run first season of Wonder Woman was popular with viewers, ABC decided to forego fashioning an "official" weekly series of the property. Fortunately, Wonder Woman was "rescued" by rival network CBS -- but not without several radical change in the format! ~ Hal Erickson

    This season is what made me love Wonder Woman. As an adult male high on testosterone who served in the military, I gained a respect for the power and strength of women. I mention the military because this season largely takes place in the military setting of WW2. The idealism and soft nature of Lynda Carter makes her use of power all the more fantastic. She's a great symbol of womanhood and they play a lot on it in this series. This first season is my favorite. I can watch it over and over. The pilot is great. It's great for males and females - young and old.

    I purchased this at Best Buy for a great price. Wonder Woman the Complete First Season DVD Starring Lynda Carter. They cleaned up the original film pretty well for this dvd release. This includes the original pilot tv movie. Lynda Carter will always be Wonder Woman to me.

    the first season of Wonder Woman is the best, back when it's set in the 40s. It could use some more action, but even in the 70s they didn't think women should be punching out men so that's why she pushes them into walls. Still, the stories are fun and the acting is good. The extras are also quite nice.

    Brought back many memories from the late 1970s. When Lynda Carter appeared as Wonder Woman on network television, it brought out all the hormones from us teenagers. Reminiscing what Wonder Woman was about without the video technology and special effects as in todays cinema.

    This Wonder Woman series from the 1970s brought back a lot of good memories. Lynda Carter was amazing as Wonder Woman back then showing a strong physical presence. Even without the special effect todays movies has, it hold your interest.

    I'm very pleased with the way the first season of this classic series is presented here. The first season of Wonder Woman takes place during World War II. It is at times predictable and campy, but highly enjoyable! A real treat!
