In the previous "Spreading the Love" post, we followed the story of Wonder Woman up against The Bermuda Triangle. If you thought that one was
Right off the bat, you know this is going to be good - Martin Mull (!) is a rock star flautist called Hamlin Rule who's kind of like Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull, bringing down the house with his flute playing mojo.
And let me tell you, his act is unbelievably awful. What kind of rock concert features a guy with a flute and a green chick popping out of a wicker basket? I was embarrassed for everyone involved.
Meanwhile, the box office earnings were being stolen backstage.. It seems box office cash has a habit of getting stolen during Hamlin performances. We don't know who's stealing the dough, but Diana is given the task of finding out.
And who plays Elaine, Joe's daughter? Sweet Lord! It's Eve Plumb!
Well, we all know what happens when Diana spins around rapidly. That's right. She turns into Wonder Woman. Giddy-up!
This time the government will be waiting for them. Joe poses as the guardian of the safe, ready for the heist. Little does he know, it will be his daughter in charge of the operation!
Now the shit starts hitting the fan. Wonder Woman is tired of playing games. She busts into Hamlin's mansion to rescue Elaine who's in the process of being hypnotized by the flute.
Anyway, I've enjoyed recounting another Wonder Woman episode. The cheesy plot, the awesome guest stars, the audacious costumes, and the lovely Linda Carter.... what's not to love? I have a feeling this won't be my last Wonder Woman post.
