Season Two (21 episodes following a feature-length season premiere) introduces Wonder Woman to a new America of nuclear power and computers. Teamed with Steve Trevor, son of the dashing major she worked with during World War II, she takes the name Diana Prince - and takes on all kinds of danger from terrorists, mad geniuses, crooks and even a diabolical rock star while working for America's Inter-Agency Defense Command. Wonder Woman, we're proud you're on our side!

While the first season introduced the world to Wonder Woman, as this season starts the superhero has become something of a myth ... she's not been seen since the Second World War. Now, after 30 years, she returns - not looking a day older! This second season was intended to be 'contemporary' (i.e. set when it was made) - the 1970's. You don't need to have seen the earlier season in order to understand this one. In the guise of her alter-ego, Diana Prince gets a job as an agent with the Inter-Agency Defense Command - fighting crime and alien invasion. And when she's needed, she transforms into Wonder Woman! We see the return of her colleague and friend, Steve Trevor, only it's Trevor Jr. now. And together they defend freedom and liberty and protect the Earth.
Generally speaking, each episode is a stand alone adventure. Lynda Carter makes a fantastic Wonder Woman - and, indeed, it's this actress that defines the show. The theme tune is great - and is brilliantly used when Diana Prince spins to transform into Wonder Woman. This show has great nostalgic value ... although new, younger viewers might still enjoy it. It's a fun, light-hearted series - and is thoroughly entertaining.
If you enjoy this second season of the show, I do recommend the others!
Maybe it has to do with Lynda feeling more comfortable in the roll or the writers getting a better feel for it, but I always liked the "modern" episodes better. Diana/Wonder Woman has more personality to her and develops a great sense of humor. Of course, the show also indulges more in the cheesy computer/sci-fi elements that were supposed to be cool but look funny by today's standards. And of course, the stunts pale compared to what we get today. I've always loved the pool backdrop when Wonder Woman is under water, for example.
Not that the show is all bad. I find it highly entertaining. There were a few shows in here I hadn't seen before, and those shows kept me glued to the TV. And I've always loved scenes with IRAC, the computer. His non-personality personality is great for a laugh. As previously mentioned, the further we get in this season, the stronger the character becomes, and the better I like her.
Fans of the show will love this set. It contains 22 episodes, including the extended second pilot. The picture has been restored and looks nice, but there are annoying bits of grain and dust in it. Could be better, but it's still good for a thirty year old show. The only thing in the way of bonus features is an eleven minute documentary on how the comics influenced the show and visa versa.
Watching the show with my roommates who had never seen it before, I've discovered just how cheesy the show could still be. I think to best enjoy the show, you need to have memories of it from childhood. But if you can look at it from a kid's point of view, you'll find the wonder and fun this series still offers and be entertained.
Waggoner that is and the lovely Linda Carter.This is probably the best season of the three you know what to expect and each episode delivers.GREAT 70'S FUN ENJOY
This time set in the 1970's Diana is fighting for good with the son of Steve Trevor. Wonder woman now has a fancy stars and stripes cape and a skimpy wet suit.
Not my favourite, i still prefer series 1 but my daughter loved it. The storylines go from the sublime to the ridiculous. My least favourite was Mind stealers from outer space part 1 & 2 because I think the credability was tarnished.
I think Lynda Carter brings such a warmth to the role I coldnt imagine anyone else as wonder woman.
Lynda Carter is fantastic as always and it's worth watching this show just to see her flawless portrayal of the amazing amazon. Of course, it's camp and it's cutesy, but it's also a lot of fun.
One thing - before you panic and wonder where half the episodes are, and why they've forgotten to print anything on the discs - they're double-sided. I've never seen this on a commercial DVD before.
Then you need series two of course! LOL
These discs are different to series one in that they come in one standard sized DVD case which houses several discs...these discs however are double sided, so a lot of care must be taken not to mark or scratch them, much more than normal discs. That said it does cut down on the size of the box.
The standard dvd case fits inside an outer box, so it is still a "boxed" set.
