Lynda Carter was Wonder Woman, and vice versa. Wonder Woman aired on ABC from 1975 to 1979, and it made Lynda Carter a cultural icon. Those were turbulent times, the 1970’s, with the Vietnam War coming to its conclusion. The Equal Rights Movement was in full force. Roe v. Wade (1973) gave women the right to a safe and legal abortion, although if a woman wants to get a safe illegal abortion I say that should be her right too. Just stay safe ladies, that’s all I ask. Could you do that for me? Pinky swear?…. Whicheverways, ABC smelt the emotional bouillabaisse that was a brewing in the proverbial witch’s cauldron. They said, “You know what? Americas feeling kind of angry, and the dickless people are acting like a bunch of dicks. What if we made a show about an American super lady superhero who fights crime and we show the world that ABC is the network that says, Hey sexy smart beautiful sexy lady babies, we know what you’ talkin’ ’bout! You’ve been oppressed for too long and it’s time a woman shows the world what she’s capable of when given some spandex, a lasso, and an invisible plane.” ABC must have really loved America.
Or maybe they just loved boobs.
I wanted to be WW when I was a kid. She was my idol!
She was awesome. I remember missing an episode one time and things got hectic in my house for a while. Thanks for checking it out.
As a very young kid, Wonder Woman was my first crush, right after my mom.
Hahaha, I vaguely remember dumping my mother whilst waiting for Wonder Woman to be my girlfriend. In retrospect it was a hasty move on my part. Thanks for checking it out.
Your blog is a riot.
Ill never give you another compliment.
Much appreciated good sir. One compliment is more than enough for me. I’m currently hard at work deciphering your dvd collection. I think I have the first two.
As you so correctly summed in your closing argument, Lynda Carter had two things working for her.
she intrigued me too
I often wonder about super heroes and have written other pieces of my wondering mind
