Cool. And 4 days after her birthday, which is my birthday too. Good b-day present.

This is very wonderful. I hope that the classic “Wonder Woman” TV show will be broadcast in this newly-remastered format.

This is great. Like my preference of George Reeves over Chris Reeve (thanks to growing up on the old series even though Chris Reeve made the best superhero movie ever prior to the Dark Knight trilogy), I love the equally goofy WW series. Gal Gadot gave us wonderful performances as Diana, just like Chris Reeves did with Superman. But my heart will always be with Lynda Carter, my 1st Wonder Woman. I see George, Adam West, Lynda and Jason Bostwick as the Earth-2 versions of our heroes.
