Things I liked
about this show:
Lee Crosby is a great actress. True, she does not strike
us as Wonder Woman, but she played an interesting heroine all her
own. She had a way with words, and the dialogue she was given was
great to see. I liked how she shut down George Calvin cold when
he was trying to impress her with his masculinity. And her
sayings like "Let's stop dancing.".
villains are especially nasty, and it's clear that we want to hate them.
The Mr. Smith character, however, is a lot more decent and doesn't
believe in unnecessary killing.
I said before, the filming was fantastic. It was really
opened up and we see a lot of outside filming and plenty of color.
stinks that Wonder Woman didn't have super powers, but it didn't stop
her from having a lot of action. She's karate fighting,
jumping around, riding a motorcycle, fighting with javelins, climbing
walls, diving off a cliff into the river and all kinds of things.
entire cast was great, even the most minimal players like the henchman
and the henchwoman. There was nobody that sucked.
Kaz Garas was cool as Steve Trevor. Ricardo Mantalban was a
surprisingly likeable villain as Mr. Abner Smith. Andrew Prine
was well done as the absolutely intolerable George Calvin. The
gum-chewing provided the extra annoyance we needed to really hate that
guy. Anitra Ford was wonderful as the fallen Amazon Ahnjayla
(pronounced "Angela"). She looked great and could act. I
actually wish they would've done more with her in this show. They
left the Ahnjayla thing really open-ended.
