    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

      I bought this complete collection on May 19, 2017 in the Marlborough,Ma store. I just opened the package 2 days ago. The dvd player would not play the pilot. Flipped over dvd and it worked. The next disc also would not play, but flipped it over and it did work. I went to Best Buy this morning to return it, they refused it because it was opened. How can anyone tell a dvd is defective without opening it. Then I was told that the upc code did not match the receipt. So I went home without getting my money back or a store credit. Came home and found the original plastic wrapper. Sure enough the upc code was different on the plastic. I would just like another one that works because I like Wonder Woman. Very disappointed!!!!!

      Three Seasons - poor quality discs

      Collection contains three seasons of Wonder Woman TV show from the 1970s starring Lynda Carter. Great that it contains threes seasons, the pilot episode, and origins of Wonder Woman on Paradise Island episodes. However, the major drawback is the poor quality of the manufactured discs. Beware of faulty discs: several discs freeze during play and skip scenes. If you do not mind skipping scenes and play freezes, then it is a adequate collection. If you prefer flawless play and quality discs, then wait for a subsequent productions or blu-ray options.

      "Wonder Woman: The Complete Series Collection" is based on the DC Comics comic book superhero of the same name. Starring Lynda Carter as "Wonder Woman", the show's three seasons are set between the 1940's and the 1970's. Growing up, this show was one of my favorites as it showcases women in a positive light and focuses on their strengths. Memorable crime fighting storylines and smart dialogue, this DVD set is a must for any superhero fan.

      Yes, I am a Super-Hero / comic book geek. This is the classic show I remember from the 80's and now it's available in a box set of the entire series. There are a few extras but not enough for me as this is the complete series and it is Wonder Woman! However she is the quintessential Wonder Woman as played by Linda Carter. The special effects may not be there like the Marvel & DC movies and TV shows of today but this will surely not disappoint. Enjoy!

      Bought this present for my wife and she loves it. She grew up in the 70's so the nostalgia was definitely there as she watched the first episode. Even our children enjoyed it despite how dated it was. If you were a fan of the show when it first aired , you should enjoy watching this again, especially with all the hype over a new Wonder Woman movie coming out this year.

      It's great to have the collection of a tv show I use to watch reruns of growing up. I mean how doesn't love Wonderman! I loved this show. The price was amazing. Y not get it. It's a classic tv show better than the b.s they have now on tv. I can't wait to start watching the episodes with my 8yr old niece! I mean the show is from the 70's so don't expect hi-def other than that it's awesome.

      Disc's Don't Play

      These disc's are cheap. I tried the discs in a different player and my PC and they did the same thing on each. The dvd will freeze and I have to move it further along manually. There is a lot pixelating. It's like watching satellite TV during a thunderstorm. No UPC code on box.If you give it as a gift you may never know. A waste of money.

      The quality of the DVDs must not be great because while the first few episodes ran fine, I noticed the 4th skipped, paused, and was impossible to watch through. The 2nd DVD itself was unreadable on the BluRay player, suggesting it was tampered with or totally defective. Very disappointed.
