Commentary by Lynda Carter on "My Teenage Idol Is Missing"
New documentary -- "Wonder Woman: The Ultimate Feminist Icon"
The final season of The New Adventures of Wonder Woman finds the Amazonian-princess heroine (played by Lynda Carter) continuing to use her superpowers -- not to mention her magic lasso and her golden bullet-deflecting bracelets -- to fight for freedom and justice on behalf of the Inter-Agency Defense Command. Working hand in glove with W.W. is her mortal boss -- and erstwhile boyfriend -- Steve Trevor Jr. (Lyle Waggoner), the son of the dashing WWII pilot who first introduced our heroine to the world outside her home turf of Paradise Island. As both her "real" self and in the mortal guise of Diana Prince, Wonder Woman encounters a number of hair-raising adventures during the series' terminal season. Choice episodes include "My Teenage Idol is Missing," in which W.W. rescues a rock star played by a very young Michael Lerner; "The Deadly Sting," wherein W.W. tackles a mad scientist who has developed a method to fix the outcome of football games (the scoundrel!); "Disco Devil," an exposé of an extortion ring operating out of a trendy discotheque; with the legendary Wolfman Jack in a guest-star turn; "Spaced Out," featuring future Star Trek: Deep Space Nine co-star Rene Auberjonois; and a brace of two-part adventures, "The Boy Who Knew Her Secret" and "Phantom of the Roller Coaster." ~ Hal Erickson

Bought this as a gift for my girlfriend. She's a huge WW fan, and was led to believe there were only two seasons, due to not watching the original in continuity, and because her go to source for nerd stuff at a comic shop only told her there were two. Regardless, she was shocked when I handed this to her, and was over the moon.
I would recommend this to a friend
