5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL WONDER WOMAN
Well what can I say.
13 discs, five for season 1, 4 for season 2 and 4 for season 3. If you were to watch each one back to back there is nearly 3 days worth of viewing if you stop up 24 hours a day.

3.0 out of 5 stars In her satin tights, she put the world to rights!
This cult show is principally remembered today for two things - the buxom Lynda Carter (mother lode for millions of '70s teenage boy fantasies)and the disco-fied title song. How does it stack up thirty years down the pike? A bit of a curate's egg to be honest.

This is my Christmas present to myself, and what a price, it's cheaper to buy this one than all of the other ones individually and I have never seen this in the shops yet.
Lynda Carter has to be one of the most beautiful women on the plant (and still is), she is Wonder Woman.
The box set contains all of the episodes ever made, taking you from the original World War II episodes in Season one through to the 'modern' stuff in Seasons 2 and 3.
And the theme tune has to be one of the best ever written for a TV show.
This box set is a MUST for all fans of this show.
The best purchase I have ever made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lynda Carter saves the world, and distracts dads., 18 Mar 2007

This review is from: Wonder Woman: Complete Seasons 1-3 [DVD] (DVD)
I love this programme, sure it is cheesy, the effects are dated, there's lots of American jingoism but at is heart it is what a TV superhero series should be, entertaining.

From the WWII fights against the axis powers and their USA based spy rings to 1970's America. The stories are pretty basic with the odd recurring character like the splendid Henry Gibson and some typically 1970's silverfoil clad aliens. But this stands out the greatest lead character casting of any superhero series or film, with the possible exception of Christopher Reeve. Also for the superb theme tune, the casting of Debra Winger as Wonder Girl and for the costume designers who brought William and Elizabeth Marston's heroine to life.

Lynda Carter was shoe-horned into that costume which has become so iconic. A Former Miss USA, Carter was so perfect for the role it is hard to imagine any actress filling her red boots to such perfection. I'm all for someone having a go but any future show or film will have to be judged against it, just as Christopher Reeve WAS the perfect Superman.

Her co-star Lyle Waggoner was a little wooden and thankfully took a back seat in the last series but who watched Wonder Woman to see him? Sorry Lyle but Ms. Carter was, and still is, the main attraction. The blue underwater and motorcycle outfits were also superb designs.

Watching it again after almost 30 years was a nostalgic treat. Some things do not change there's ecological and anti-war themes that are still relevant today. And, even better than that, there's daft robots galore. It is, like Buck Rogers superb 1970's kitsch and I loved every minute of it.

I give it five stars largely for Lynda Carter but also on the strength of the fact that as I watched it I remembered what was coming next in many episodes, such was the impact it had first time round.

Go on, give it a try.

This box set is well presented with 13 discs, sesons 1-3. It arrived very quick. Excellent picture but the sound is still in the 1970's.Overall its a great box set. It brings back lots of childhood memories.

This cult show is principally remembered today for two things - the buxom Lynda Carter (mother lode for millions of '70s teenage boy fantasies)and the disco-fied title song. How does it stack up thirty years down the pike? A bit of a curate's egg to be honest.

"Wonder Woman" inhabits that uncomfortable netherworld when the inspired lunacy of the "Batman" and "Green Hornet" TV shows had faded but the Burton/Singer "serious" approach to superheroes had yet to happen. As a result it wavers wildly between camp and dramatic (in much the same way the "Superman" films did - but much more so).

The scripts are often idiotic, the effects poor-to-desperate and the acting feeble. And yet.....................

Apart from Christopher Reeve, it's hard to think of another actor who so embodies the superhero they're portraying. Lynda Carter simply IS the prodigiously-proportioned Amazonian (none of your currently fashionable heroin-chic, botox-lipped stick insect here!). When all about her are sinking into mortifying embarrassment, she maintains the essential dignity and stature of the comic world's premier heroine. In short,like the late, great Chris, she makes you believe. This set is worth having for her alone.

As it is(apart from the very worst episodes)there are usually enough redeeming features to keep the entertainment quotient at an acceptable (if frequently preposterous)level. If the entire collection seems a bit too much to roll the dice on all at once, start with Season 1. It goes downhill from there on a fairly steep gradient.

You DO get a different arrangement of the famous theme song each season. From the classic original to the almost Temptations/Norman Whitfield-like swirling strings of Season 3. Collect 'em all.

"Get us out from under, Wonder Woman" indeed!
