Electra Woman & Dyna Girl
(1976): Well, its intentions were good. There
are two reasons to watch "Electra Woman & Dyna Girl": Deidre Hall
and Judy Strangis. Deidre Hall is a beautiful blonde
knockout. Judy Strangis is really cute and kinky in her
superheroine costume and red ponytails. In reality,
Hall is only about two years older than "Girl" Strangis, but the height
difference made the casting plausible.
Straight up, this was meant to be a female version
of the 1966 "Batman" TV series. It's just as corny, but between
the two shows, I'd have to say this is better. Why? Unlike
"Batman", "Electra Woman & Dyna Girl" is
purposely meant to be a comedy kiddy show.
Also, Electra Woman and Dyna Girl are legitimate, positive role models.
The "Batman" series certainly had a better
budget. "Electra Woman & Dyna Girl" was filmed like a soap
opera. Still, the show did well with what it could do.
The best episode of the series is "The Return of the
Sorcerer". It certainly made the best use of the available
special effects at their disposal. This was also an interesting
story about our heroines pursuing the villain into a magic mirror and
being trapped in another dimension. I also think Michael
Constantine as The Sorcerer and Susan Lanier as Miss Dazzle were the
best cast villain characters. Constantine's acting is easier to
take than that of the other, overacted villain players. And who
doesn't find Miss Dazzle hot?
"Electra Woman & Dyna Girl" was NOT its own
series, but a segment of the TV series "The Krofft Supershow". It
lasted 16 weeks, one half of an "Electra Woman & Dyna Girl"
adventure being shown per episode. This is where the confusion
about the show having 8 or 16 episodes originates. "Electra Woman
& Dyna Girl" has developed such a strong cult following that it is
often thought of as its own TV series. Pretty good for a segment
that was axed after one half of a season!
Lori and Judy were reporters for Newsmaker Magazine,
and led a double life as crimefighters Electra Woman and Dyna
Girl. They had no superpowers, and operated through
gadgetry. The clunky Electra-Comp devices they wore on their
wrists were their weapons. They also rode around in an odd little
Electra-Car, and based their operations in a top secret, underground
Electra-Base. Their ally and confidant was Professor Frank
Heflin, who seems to be the mastermind behind all their gadgetry.
It would be fun to see a new, live-action film based
on this series. Since the original show did not last that long or
have that much to it, writers would be given a lot of creative
freedom. In 2001, a pilot for a new "Electra Woman & Dyna
Girl" series was filmed, but never released. It starred Markie
Post as Electra Woman, and was a dysfunctional spoof of the original.
