Long ago, when we were all free to roam the streets, we’d planned an episode to tie into the June 2020 release of Wonder Woman 1984

Since then, society has collapsed and that film has been postponed till August, but despite that, we still wanted to celebrate a cultural milestone.

Here, we explore the wonderful world of Wonder Woman, specifically the 1970s television series starring Lynda Carter. We tackle Diana’s somewhat strange flight plans, the show’s trio of awesome theme tunes, and how it tackled the sexism of the era.

Based on the DC Comics superhero character, Wonder Woman was a big success in the second half of the 1970s.

Starring Lynda Carter and Lyle Waggoner, Wonder Woman’s first season aired on ABC and was set in the 1940s during World War II.

The second and third seasons moved to CBS and were set in the 1970s, with the title changed to The New Adventures of Wonder Woman, and a complete change of cast other than Carter and Waggoner.
