Must See: Wonder Woman

Illustration for article titled Must See: Wonder Woman

Must-see TV shows are futuristic classics that shouldn't be missed. Of course, not every must-see is perfect. That's why we've rated them 1-5 on the patented "crunchy goodness" scale.

Title: Wonder Woman
Date: 1975-1979

Vitals: An Amazon from an all-woman island paradise travels to America to fight Nazis — and then hops forward a few decades to fight disco.

Famous names: Lynda Carter, Lyle Waggoner, Norman Burton, Douglas S. Cramer


Crunchy goodness: 2

Spinoffs/Sequels/Copycats: Joss Whedon was supposed to write and direct a movie, but now it's stuck in development hell.


Stunt casting: Chloris Leachman as Queen Hyppolita, Wonder Woman's over-protective mother, who's worried about letting Wonder Woman visit the unhygienic outside world.

The shit: When the boogie-woogie theme music plays and Carter spins around to create a burst of light and don her spangly costume, you can't help believing in Amazons.
