Odds & Ends

Here are some things I meant to mention and/or post last week...

New Wonder Woman


Various outlets are reporting that Friday Night Lights star Adrianne Palicki has been cast as Diana Prince in NBC’s upcoming Wonder Woman television series. The joint venture between writer David E. Kelley and Jeffrey Reiner had a bumpy start, but after being passed on by a number of networks, NBC finally came to the rescue. Unfortunately, like rival network Fox, NBC is often quick to pull the plug if a show doesn’t hit the ground running. We’ll just have to hope that Palicki has the skills to match her striking looks — after all, anyone can dye their hair black, but handling that Lasso of Truth? Well, that remains to be seen.

I've never heard of Ms. Palicki before this announcement... Hope she's good.

That is a much better image of the new Wonder Woman. I saw her on another site with blond hair, looking a bit like Marilyn Monroe. What a turn off. This is better. I hope she's good too--I'm still on the fence about this remake.

Amanda-- I've seen the blond ones too, but I had to put up a brunette shot. I don't know her enough to have an opinion yet. But Linda Carter is going to be a tough act to follow.

Yes, a very tough act to follow. Maybe I'm being sentimental, but she was one of my childhood heroes. I hope they do this right.
