All the world is waiting for you, and the power you possess
In your satin tights, fighing for your rights, and the old red, white, and blue!
This is the intro from the 70s TV show when it was still set during World War II–and these are the only episodes of the show worth watching, in my view, starring Lynda Carter as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, and Lyle Waggoner as the Superhunky Major Steve Trevor. (Don’t you love how she’s always rescuing him?) A few years ago, a friend of mine gave me the DVD box set–see especially “The Feminum Mystique,” parts I and II, which also stars an adorable Debra Winger as WW’s sister Drusilla, and “Wonder Woman versus Gargantua,” in which WW is pitted against a gorilla brainwashed to hate her! (You can watch full episodes here, friends–enjoy!)
Speaking of Superhunks: I finally saw Up in the Air Friday night–a very good film. Here’s some interesting trivia: I noticed that George Clooney has a chicken pox scar just above his left eyebrow, and that he’s got a large scar from smallpox vaccination on his left shoulder. (You can’t say I’m not detail oriented, can you?) I didn’t think the “surprise ending” was all that much of a surprise–but for those of you who haven’t seen the movie, that’s as much as I’ll reveal about it. The best thing about the movie was the portrayal of how Clooney’s character mentors a younger (smart but quite green) young woman professionally, without any suggestion of any sexual interest or awkwardness.
