Who Could Possibly Be As Good As Lynda Carter?

Back in the 70s, one of my favorite tv shows was Wonder Woman. I mean, let's face it, Lynda Carter is hot hot hot, and looked even hotter in the Wonder Woman costume. The first season, when Wonder Woman was fighting Nazis, was the best; when they moved her to "the present" in the next two seasons, in order to expand the number of possible storylines, the show honestly wasn't as good. But Carter? Hot hot hot!

A couple of seasons ago, NBC tried to recreate The Bionic Woman. I enjoyed the show, much more than I did the Bionic Woman of old (it wasn't near as good as The Six Million Dollar Man), but sadly it failed. Now NBC is going to reboot the Wonder Woman franchise.

Kelley’s take incorporated the superhero’s signature lasso, cuffs, and plane in the script, and insiders said it was a serious, non-campy take on the DC Comics character.

That's a good start. Now let's not make it too dark--Wonder Woman is supposed to be, I don't know, uplifting or something. I guess we'll have to wait and see what happens.

A TV show about a strong, scantily clad woman who ties bad men up and makes them tell the truth...

It should do well.

Uplifting? That's a push-up bra.

She had plenty to push up, and it looked good. :-)
