Well here it is, another week and finally a new character to post about. I know she's not from One Life To Live, though that would have made the show even more interesting. I've been rather upset about the show going off the air, so I'm just not prepared to dive back into the pool of characters. It's pathetic, but I miss them too much right now. Instead I'm going to briefly talk about one of my favorite super heroes of all time, Wonder Woman. Now I was never a fan of DC comic books, so I can't talk about that version of her. Instead this will be about the TV version played by the gorgeous Lynda Carter.
As some of you may know, the television series only lasted 3 seasons, though I think it should have gone for many more. I actually own every season on DVD and probably watch it a bit too much. The show was cheesy and the timeline was hilarious. Season one takes place while the U.S. is fighting Nazi Germany, and most of the action takes place along those lines. The second season takes place decades later and the main male lead actor is now playing the son of the first character he played. It's just lots of fun.
Like I said earlier I don't know much about the comic version of Wonder Woman, but from what I've seen form the TV show makes me fall in lover with her every time she steps onto my screen. Besides being drop dead gorgeous with some of the sexiest eyes to ever grace a human being, she is one of those rare characters that has no ulterior motives. She does what she does because she believes it to be the right thing to do and she wants to help the human race survive the pitfalls that are laid before it.
She is everything a super hero should be. She has superior strength, stamina, and can leap like a gazelle. She has a lasso that forces those caught with it to tell the truth, she can stop bullets with her bracelets, and even has an invisible plane to ride around in. But most of all she is purely selfless. She is an Amazonian princess who grew up (without aging) on an enchanted island that protects it's inhabitants. It's by her own choice to get involved in the outside world and protect man from outside enemies and from itself. It's not something she has to do because the gods tell her, it's because she knows it's the right thing to do. I can only hope that she is an example that more people live up to in that regard.
I think this is where I will end this post because I have an burning desire to go watch season 3.
