Wonder Woman (1974)

When you think of Wonder Woman on ABC in the '70s no doubt you think of Lynda Carter in her red, white, and blue outfit, spinning through costume changes. But do you remember ABC's first Wonder Woman played by Cathy Lee Crosby? Based on DC Comics' "Diana Prince" era of comics, this made-for-TV movie introduces Wonder Woman the super-spy. Her bracelets may not deflect bullets, but they are gadgets worthy of James Bond. 

The series based on this pilot was not green-lit, and the next year ABC would try again with their iconic Lynda Carter show. But was this original movie still a Wonder? Wonder no longer! Listen to Now Playing to find out!

With talking bunny sitcoms, a murder mystery, and the Locomotion, did he go out on a high note? Join Arnie, Stuart, and Jakob in this final David Lynch review to find out!
