Wonder Woman

IMG_4871

Just saw the film Wonder Woman.Β As a child, I often watched actress Lynda Carter’s portrayal of this heroic woman, one who epitomized strength, intelligence, compassion and beauty. She was someone I always strived to be. Two years ago and up until now, I found myself in a similar situation–only sometimes I feel I lack one of WW’s best qualities.

Gal Gadot’s portrayal of the present day Wonder Woman was outstanding! She’s been handed the torch and has exemplified everything the original Wonder Woman was…and more.

And kudos to director Patty Jenkins for directing this amazing film, whose character has empowered little girls and adult women everywhere to always follow your dreams, to strive for the best, to not be dependent on others–specifically a man–and to use what you already have to make this a better world for YOUrself and for those you care about.

The added bonus in the film: Chris Pine as Steve Trevor. 😍

The best line in the film: “Be careful in the world of men, Diana, for they do not deserve you.”

‘Wonder Woman’ TV Series Turns 40

On Nov. 7, 1975, a television pilot aired on ABC-TV called The New, Original Wonder Woman, which centered around an Amazon warrior princess named Diana Prince, portrayed by the beautiful and talented Lynda Carter.

Diana Prince, who’s also known as Wonder Woman, leaves Paradise Island with Major Steve Trevor (portrayed by Lyle Waggoner) to return him back to America. Prince’s alter ego, Wonder Woman, fights all likes of evil with her golden belt (the source of her power and strength) and lasso, and bullet-deflecting bracelets, and transports herself in her invisible jet.

The show ran for a total of three seasons: the pilot and Season 1 aired on ABC-TV, while Seasons 2 and 3 aired on CBS-TV. The last Wonder Woman episode aired on Sept. 11, 1979. πŸ“ΊΒ  πŸ™‚
