Episode 16: Wonder Woman ‘75! Wonder Woman ‘11! I Wonder If She Can Cook?

June 9, 2017

In This Episode!

Matt and Chris celebrate the release of Wonder Woman by discussing the original Wonder Woman TV show from the 1970s and the unaired 2011 pilot! They discuss the attractiveness of Lynda Carter, the ham-fistedness of the 2011 pilot, and laugh at and are uncomfortable with the casual sexism of the 1970s take on the 1940s. Why does Paradise Island not know how to take care of Steve Trevor? If they’re peaceful, why do they have guns? Why is Wonder Woman the owner of a multinational corporation that finances her crime fighting? Why does she need that damn invisible plane? Give us a listen and find out!*

*Not really. We just bring it up. But still, give us a listen.
