Why oh why was The incredible Hulk given SUCH the shaft? Why can't it be treated with the same dignity offered to Wonder Woman? It certainly was higher rated than this! I would like season sets of Hulk and I think alot of other people want it too...
I picked up WW season one and will probably do season two as well...
I will definitely be adding season 2 of Wonder Woman to my collection... I believe that I am in the minority here... but I always perfered the 2nd and 3rd season to the first... I never been much of a fan of war type shows and movies.
Yeah I would like to see The Incredible Hulk released in season sets too... I have the movies and the pilot episode dvd... but didn't get that one boxset in hopes that we will see season sets before to long.
The costume was an improvement, but I am in the group that preferred the nostalgic period fun of the World War II shows, which were very true to the comic book setting. Set in the present day, the series became much too run of the mill fare. I will end up getting though.
Well Steve Jr. wouldn't have been "competing" with that guy since by the time that last episode was shot he had already walked away from the series and had it continued, Diana would have been based in LA (very unimaginative if you ask me) with a whole new supporting cast that we saw in that last episode of season 3 (Lyle Waggoner doesn't even have a credit in the titles in that last show).
i'm glad to see this coming out as i will appreciate having a complete set of the show, but frankly- the show was never especially compelling viewing as far as storytelling went. there were a few scattered eps here and there that still held up when i saw them agian in re-runs recently ( The Man Who Could Move the World from S2 is one i DO really enjoy), but the main appeal, by far, for me is overwhelmingly nostalgia and the female eye candy. Carter was always easy on the eyes and had a charming presence that made the hour go down easy (sometimes).
but there are definitley some dogs in there. i think they are spread around thru the entire series though. Anschluss '77 is as inane and hobbled by cheap production values, as any of WWII eps. they tried to play it straight in the last two seasons, but the stories were for the most part, still fairly simple minded and childish . Alias it isn't.
I agree 100% with ScottR about the costume... and as for if I could only get one season... for me it would be the second season. As I stated earlier... I never cared much for the WWII era episodes... mainly because I am not much of a war buff.
I somewhat hesitantly picked this up last week to take advantage of the hot price at CC. I was not a big fan of the Wonder Woman TV show during its network run, but I bought the first season set last year and enjoyed it very much. Based on a few of the comments I read here, about the lack of quality after season one, I thought I might be disappointed with these followup sets.
So far, I am happy to report, that I am quite pleased with this set. You get all 22 season two episodes and one brief (but entertaining) extra on disc 4. Although season two takes place in "modern day" 1977, the episodes I have seen so far still make a number of references to WWII and various war themes.
The overall audio and video presentation is on par with the first season set albeit with a few minor exceptions. First off, the second season "pilot" is by far the worst sounding episode in the set. The mono soundtrack is noticeably lower and thinner sounding than the other episodes. Another complaint I have is with the animated bumpers. In the first season set, these snippets look clean, vibrant and colorful. This time around they do not appear to have gone through any restoration process at all. These bumpers look so bad compared to the rest of the transfer, that they are very distracting and really break the mood.
Other than that, especially at the less than $30 price point, I think this is a great set and a worthy addition to your TV on DVD library. As always, YMMV.
Thanks for your thoughts on this one Gary... I ordered it online... should be here any day now. I haven't seen season 2 since they aired in syndication back in... oh I guess it had to be the 80's. So it will be allot of fun to see them again... I am really looking forward to them.
And we will be getting season 3 in June!?! I remember reading it at tvshowsondvd.com and showed the season 3 coverart. I knew they would go with blue... but not to sure I like the fact that they put her inside a circle and only showing her face and upper body this time. Here is the link to Season 3 Info
Cool link, Pete. I am guessing that this season three cover pic came from the same photo session as season two. The bow for her cape looks to be tied identically and it appears to be in the same location. Perhaps that's why they did the crop job?
i haven't cracked mine open yet, but i was very happy to see they continued with the foil accents for the jacket. really flashy, well done box art and the three sets together are going to look great on the shelf. and a nice zippy release schedule to boot.
also, kudos to Warner on the pricing of the set. i paid as much for the 22 eps here as i did for 13 from the first season (although that did have more in the way of extras). at the moment, i'm really heartbroken over the way Warner botched one of my all time favorite movies (released the same day as WW), but i am happy to give them credit when they do a fine job, as it seems to be the case with WW.
