There were some entertaining spots in the Pilot episode, but that had more to do with Adrianne Palicki wearing the Wonder Woman costume more than anything else. So much was made out of the new costume design and how horrible it was and all the negativity that it generated among comic book and Wonder Woman fans, that I was actually surprised later in the episode when she turned up wearing the vintage costume with the shorts. I wonder if this was their intent all along or if the creators of the show decided to placate fan backlash and go retro as a sign of good faith. It's a  g a m b l e  in alienating a built-in fanbase when a show is trying to get picked up and become a series.

In the end, it didn't matter because this was awful. The writing, dialog and acting were bad from start to finish. I love Adrianne, but she was seriously miscast here. Honestly, I don't think any name Hollywood starlet would have been appropriate. They would have been better off going with a complete unknown so that there would be no baggage with the actress. I was also surprise to see Cary Elwes and Elizabeth Hurley in this one. I didn't know because I kind of stayed away from spoilers in case it became a series and didn't want to know too much about it.

Having said all that, this episode has the best catch phrase of 2011...
