The thing is though that the Lynda Carter Wonder Woman has for obvious reasons become the gold standard by which any future screen Wonder Woman will be measured.





And they have to measure up! Sadly Adrianne Palicki doesn't.

 :(


SEE?!?!? We CAN agree on a woman!! Lynda Carter is GORGEOUS!!  :D

That makes two we agree on.  Luscious Lynda Carter, and poor shipwrecked Marry Ann.

Really, I wish they'd made a Wonder Woman movie years ago and cast Lucy Lawless in the role. She looked perfect.


You're absolutely right. It's very annoying that Hollywood missed the opportunity twelve or so years ago because the biggest problem in doing Wonder Woman is the casting. Actresses that look the part are very few and far between and here was one virtually screaming to be cast in the part.













What she's doing as a blonde though is beyond me.

Lynda Carter is hard to top, curves all day and she owned that role.

The costume will be a hinderance. Most of us like the iconic WW costume. As someone else said, we are probably not the demographic for the show. If they are indeed shooting for the younger crwod, they will have to update the costume. Maybe black leather?

I can hear howls of laughter from teenagers in my neighborhood at the current photos of the new WW in her blue pants and red boots. She looks like she's leaving Studio 54 circa 1977.

The only change I'd be willing to consider in the costume Lynda Carter wore on the show's last two seasons is for the shorts to be replaced by the loose, short skirt Wonder Woman wore when first introduced.





Quite simply, hardly any women look good in granny shorts while a loose, short skirt flatters just about any woman with good legs.

From Aintitcoolnews~

Geekshow’s Scott Carelli saw a test-screening cut of David E. Kelley’s “Wonder Woman” and offered a lot of details:

* Diana apparently doesn’t at any time during the pilot wear the "blue boot" outfit from that first, famous photo Warner Bros. released.

* The first time we see Diana she’s on Hollywood Boulevard in the red-boot costume of which we all saw photos.

* At some point she switches to the iconic star-spangled panties.

* Carelli, having earlier read a pilot script, said the pilot itself was better than he thought it would be – but it still “wasn’t even as good as ‘Smallville.’”

* Carelli said the pilot was, however, promising enough to get him to watch a second episode.

* According to Carelli: my pal Tracie Thoms (“Wonderfalls,” “Cold Case”), who plays Diana’s Girl Friday, is the best thing in the pilot.

* Palicki is “really good” as the title character but is generally let down by David E. Kelley’s script.

* Cary Elwes is decent as the chief executive at Diana’s Themyscera Industries.

* Elizabeth Hurley is “cheesy” as Veronica Cale, the pilot’s Lex Luthor surrogate.

* Carelli hated “Knight Rider” star Justin Bruening, who’s apparently a real stiff as Diana’s ex Steve Trevor, and hopes the role will be recast.

* The pilot felt more like a cross between “Ally McBeal” and “Boston Legal” than Wonder Woman.

* Diana both kills (apparently quite cavalierly) and tortures men in the pilot Carelli saw.

* The lasso is frequently employed as an Indiana Jones-type whip.

* Carelli was okay with the fight sequences, in which Diana comes off as “a warrior.”

* We learn Diana left Trevor (and a life in New York) because she feared her enemies could harm any romantic interest she might pursue.

* In the pilot, Diana’s home island of Themyscera is apparently a lot like Dharma Island from “Lost”: once one leaves it, it’s essentially impossible to find again.

NBC will announce whether or not it’s taking “Wonder Woman” to series no later than next Monday.

The NBC upfronts are on Monday May 16.  They will announce their schedule for the next season then. 

If you're a fan I went to Big Lots today and picked up the animated DVD movie for $3.

Exactly what I was afraid of - refried "Lois & Clark" soapcrap.

The NBC network upfronts will be presented on Monday May 16.  There are a few reliable entertainment web sites (TVbythenumbers) and others, which are reporting NBC has picked up Wonder Woman for a series.  It's isn't official yet.

Good grief..........this is going to be a disaster. Who's the target audience for this?? The 70s show with Lynda Carter worked because it was played for camp. I mean COME ON.............the lasso of truth. Bullet-deflecting bracelets?? Invisible planes?? It HAS to be played for camp to work, and this seems like they're taking it SERIOUSLY.

Variety has reported today NBC is not going to pick up Wonder Woman anytime soon.  Chuck is getting a 13 episode order.

One website reports one thing and another site reports the exact opposite.  Welcome to the digital age.

  I can always pop in Lynda Carter's version on DVD, so whether the show gets picked up or not......I'm still happy.    ;D

As Judd said, it seems to be a no go:
