Who's afraid of Diana Prince? 1967 Wonder Woman TV pilot

I saw this on YouTube listed as a 1967 pilot for Wonder Woman. Really? This is for real? What were they thinking?

Diana Prince and Ugly Betty Suarez are one and the same!

Yeah Bee, I kind of felt the same way. Especially when she was looking at herself in the mirror, that was just disturbing.

Jean-luc-- It does seem that Betty's look may have been influenced by this early Diana Prince. Thank goodness they didn't try to make Linda Carter look this bad.

I am not looking forward to Wonder Woman,the motion picture. I am sure it will be campy..how can it be anything but? Maybe it's a good thing. Maybe the filming of Wonderwoman (outside of a porn job) is a sign that the superhero genre has jumped the shark, so to speak. Oh wait...Ghost Rider signaled that, didn't it?

I don't know that Wonder Woman-- the movie-- is going to be made after all. Joss Whedon, who was scheduled to direct is off the film and I don't think they have a replacement.

I don't know if doing Wonder Woman would necessarily mean the genre's jumped the shark; but it's a strong signal that it has. I'm trying to picture it as not being campy and ridiculous and if anyone manages to pull that off I'd be impressed.

Maudie Prickett!! I freaking love her!

And I had never seen this before, so I checked it out on IMDB. Thank God, it was supposed to be a spoof!

All that whining made me think I was at the casa de Skywalker.

BTW, who on Earth could they find to replace the stunning LC? Would they pick another Latina? I doubt it. The part would probably go to some overrated skank who couldn't act her way out of a nightgown.

Jessica Alba, or something. Blah!

For the life of me I can't think of who might replace Linda Carter.

SQT said...

Oh, and I am very relieved to hear this was supposed to be a spoof. It's just disturbing to think someone might have seriously thought this might make it as a series.
