Well I've seen the Wonder Woman pilot in it's entirety.  I expect the NBC cops to show up soon.  I can't add much to what the many other reviewers have stated.  Overall I thought it was weak.  I wasn't the worst comic book pilot ever done (Superpup).  It wasn't that good either.  I liked elements of it.

Good stuff:

I thought Adrianne was really good in it.  She looks like WW and the costume doesn't look silly on her.  The action scenes were good but not great.  Her use of the lasso was nifty.  I liked her jet.  The gag cameos were amusing.   Her bullet deflecting was cool.  There's a scene when she visits a young man in a hospital and she really came across as Wonder Woman in it.

The bad:

The plot is clunky.  The story isn't all that interesting.   Diana breaks numerous laws such as, slandering people in public, using violence in unethical ways and breaking into private companies.  She has little regard for the law or the legal system and gets away with it.  Not very super heroic.  She advisiors tell her she needs to be more careful but she ignores them.  It's weird.   No mention is made of her orgins or faith.  We see Greek statues in her office. 

She has a secret identity but it doesn't work or make sense.  Diana Price owns a small apartment and she cat named Sylvester.  she watches TV and eats chips and had no friends on her Facebook page. 

Her CEO chews her out during a meeting over dolls and she's the big boss.  Her dismisses her views on the toys.  It's an odd scene.

They try to show that being a super hero isn't all that and it almost works but the Diana Prince sub plot is just tacked on for no good reason.

Overall the whole thing is weak but parts of it work.

Sounds like the typical result of MBA's and marketing gurus trying to reach some target demographic. 
Supernatural, perhaps; baloney, perhaps not.

I've given this more thought and time to sink in.  In this pilot Diana doesn't really act like Diana from the comics, TV series or cartoons.  She's behaves like the Huntress.  She believes the ends justify the means and that isn't Wonder Woman.  Some viewers may not have an issue with a reworking of the character.  I personally think one should stay true to the spirit of the character.

For me I just didn't think the story was all that interesting.  I thought the plot was kind of run of the mill.

In the pilot you have a character called Wonder Woman who doesn't really act like Wonder Woman and a medicore plot.

I agree. Wonder Woman should be the Wonder Woman that we all know. Otherwise why do Wonder Woman at all? Do another character.
