The transfers look great and the sound is fantastic. The stories and writing, on the other hand, make me stare in disbelief. Today's audiences (including me) may not be more sophisticated but, they must be much less patient - each episode of Wonder Woman feels like much longer than its 40-some minute duration.
All that said, it is still fun to look at and soak up the 'family' TV of my childhood.
Do not miss the commentary on the pilot episode.
I'm 32 years old and this was the best Christmas ever!

"I have 4 kids ranging in age from 9 down to a newborn but this year for Christmas I was the one screaming and jumping up and down more than any of the kids. When I opened up the Wonder Woman season DVD I almost passed out. I just couldn't believe it. I was a HUGE fan as a kid. I had wonder woman barbie, towels,etc. I used to love to pretend that I was Wonder Woman with all my friends. I even had told my kids all the stories of Wonder Woman that I could remember so that even THEY were excited when they realized they woudl finally get to watch the show and not just hear about it. I don't think my kids knew how to react seeing their mom so hyped about something!!!! When my husband hit play and the Wonder Woman song came on it all came back to me. I was absolutely in heaven!! I was dancing and rocking out to "You're a wonder, Wonder Woman!!!!" All my kids were dancing with me and I was so excited to see my kids being introduced to the greatest tv show of all time! Ok....well that could by my nostalgia from childhood but no matter how hokey this show was (and now as an adult I realize it was pretty hokey) I just don't care. As far as I am concerned Wonder Woman is still the best tv show ever made. I love Lynda Carter. I was such a loyal devoted fan that even when she starred in that one hour show with Lonnie Anderson later in the 80's that got cancelled quickly I still watched the show out of loyalty to Lynda Carter. The show she was in with Lonnie was not a good show but I was a devoted Wonder Woman fan to the end. I hope they come out with every single episode ever made. I will buy every one."

Meet the United States' secret and most beautiful weapon in the fight against tyranny: Wonder Woman! Season One of Wonder Woman (the Pilot Movie and 13 regular episodes) retains the World War II era of the super heroine's early comic book adventures. Also captured is the exuberant tone of a comic book come to screen life as the warrior princess, empowered by her sense of a woman's worth and by the mysterious substance Feminum that's found only on her remote native isle, battles a succession of Nazi baddies. Former Miss USA Lynda Carter stars as the heroine who hides her identity behind the oversized glasses of a War Department functionary. But when duty and danger call, she transforms. And the wonders never cease.
Wonder Woman - The Complete 1st Season arrives on (...) 3 DVDs - at least two of them double-sided - that contain the 90-minute pilot episode from 1975, plus the 13 weekly episodes that make up the exciting first season that ran in 1976-77.Don't forget that Debra Winger shows up as "Wonder Girl", plus other guest stars include Cloris Leachman and Kenneth Mars. Lyle Waggoner co-stars as Major Steve Trevor, of course.Episodes included are: "The New Original Wonder Woman" (90-minute pilot), "Wonder Woman Meets Baroness Von Gunther", "Fausta: The Nazi Wonder Woman", "Beauty on Parade", "The Feminum Mystique (Part 1)", "The Feminum Mystique (Part 2)", "Wonder Woman vs. Gargantua!", "The Pluto File", "Last of the Two Dollar Bills", "Judgement from Outer Space (Part 1)", "Judgement from Outer Space (Part 2)", "Formula 407", "The Bushwackers", and "Wonder Woman in Hollywood".Included also is a featurette entitled "Beauty, Brawns and Bulletproof Bracelets: A Wonder Woman Retrospective". Also look for the commentary track we previously reported on: you'll find Lynda Carter doing one for the pilot, and sitting in with her is none other than Executive Producer Douglas S. Cramer. Clocking in at 725 minutes, this will be viewable in the same video and audio it was originally broadcast in: 1.33:1 screen format and English Mono 1.0 sound. (...)."
A DVD Filled With Wonder

"Back in the 70s, Warner Bros. decided to bring the DC Comics super heroine Wonder Woman to the small screen in the hopes of establishing a competative show with the Universal television series the Bionic Woman. The first attempt failed miseribly. A Wonder Woman television movie starring Cathy Lee Crosby aired without any of the trademark airs of the comic. Not only was she blonde, wore a jump suit and didn't deflect bullets; but her other super human abilites didn't exist either. Other than being an Amazon Princess from Paradise Island, Wonder Woman was basically an athletic Charlie's Angel. Seeing the folly of their mistakes, Warner Bros. relaunched the series staring Miss World USA: Lynda Carter. Not only did Lynda come through with all the missing airs of the character, but she captured the essence of what it ment to be an icon. In this, the Pilot of the relaunched 'New Adventures of Wonder Woman', Princess Diana discovers a downed pilot (Steve Trevor) on the shores of her island home. When a contest is held to see which Amazon will be worthy enough to escort the stranger to America, Diana enters and wins the honor of becoming Wonder Woman. Words can't express how much I enjoyed this episode. It's filled with lots of action, humor and heart as only the eternally beautiful Lynda Carter can capture. Columbia House initially released the series a few years ago on video tape. The picture quality was the best I have ever seen. Now finding a DVD product page on Amazon.com makes me beleive that the same quality of film may be used to bring the Amazing Amazon into a new foray of modern media. Hopefully, in keeping with the times, we may even be lucky enough to see some rare bonus items on the DVD release such as actor interviews, behind the scenes footage, original promotional commercials, bloopers, and other such trivia fans of the genre are just so eager to see."
