The author says that there are some good things (Ms. Palicki, most of the final fight scene), but that it's mostly overwhelmed by lazy crap.

I'm still waiting for it to show up somewhere that I can *ahem* obtain it, so I can judge for myself.

At this point I'm annoyed that the whole thing seems to have been so half-arsed.

Assuming what was said was accurate, no wonder NBC passed. Now if I was just a Billionaire, I could hire the on hiatus writers of two and a half men along with Ms. Palicki and come up with something that everyone would love. If they can make Charlie Sheen look good, imagine what they could do with a hot babe in a sexy costume!

I honestly don't understand what's so hard about it. Find an attractive, athletic woman who can act. Put her in a costume that doesn't look like it came from a Halloween store. She fights crime. Who wouldn't want to watch that? There's your hit TV show!

Maybe Wondy has too much baggage, too much that makes men afraid. Maybe a less well-known super-heroine could sneak under the radar. Ms. Marvel, or Power Girl. Hell, if they insist on letting David E. Kelley make TV shows, have him make She-Hulk. She's a single, female lawyer! Ally McBeal crossed with Thor. Bam! There's another hit TV show for you.

Damn it. Getting frustrated with all these "reviews" of a copy they "somehow managed to get hold of". If you really have it, and arent just rehashing someone elses words, post the damn thing so we can ALL see it.

Peace

I quite agree, I've heard tons of mixed reviews about this pilot ranging from great to horrid scores. I really want to see for myself, but obviously I have to way to "somehow get hold of it".

+1000

I'm getting tired of all the mixed reviews also. Just release the damn thing already so we can judge for ourselves!

By the way, I find it kind of funny that a pilot that did not get picked up is still getting more press than the shows that did get picked up. Heck, at this point, I don't even remember, or care, what shows beat WW out for a spot. That can't be good for NBC...

I don't think it's that strange. Rumors about a WW-related production have floated around for years, this pilot was one that come closest to be released. As a consequence it's pretty obvious that people will talk and speculate about it.

I don't think wonder woman works because of her looks and costume. Hot woman in a costume straight out of a porn movie?
How the hell do you write something without it being just some drama about her "try to be normal" life with a little added ass kicking. You can't really have her in a tight situation because realistically the moment she is vulnerable and trapped it would lead to rape. This is the problem with superheroines movies/series. You can't have them running around in porn outfits chasing bad guys. Having their arch enemies being women makes it just hilarious cause she can kick guys butts but have trouble with a woman? That's Halle Berry's Catwoman all over again.
