The Seven-Second Teaser For NBC’s Failed WONDER WOMAN Pilot!! Hercules’ In-No-Way Classic TV Clip Of The Day!!
Word is David D. Kelley’s pilot was mediocre at best, but there’s something inside of me that craves a half-naked Adrianne Palicki beating the shit out of bad guys on a weekly basis.
The first footage from the dead pilot to hit YouTube:

I rarely say this, but can I have my 7 seconds back? :)
June 10, 2011, 2:46 p.m. CST
was directing this show.
June 10, 2011, 2:47 p.m. CST
Seriously TV has moved on. Might have got away with this in the '80s but this needed more subplots and, even at this early stage, more hints at an overall arc.

...and I'm going to kill you! Seriously, that was not Wonder Woman; just a pissed off suburban princess in a Halloween costume!

I actually wouldn't mind seeing the pilot someday. It can't possibly be as bad as people say. I mean, it can't be worse than Turds of Prey
June 10, 2011, 3:08 p.m. CST
for being canceled!!! Seven seconds was enough to tell me this would have failed.

Seven whole seconds of nothing at all. pffft.
June 10, 2011, 3:14 p.m. CST
June 10, 2011, 3:22 p.m. CST
Now I actually WANT to watch this turd to see how it all went down.
June 10, 2011, 3:24 p.m. CST
wonder if WW would have lasted longer then the Michelle Ryan Bionic Woman reboot
June 10, 2011, 3:25 p.m. CST
WHY didn't one of those criminals/Nazis rip that breast plate off? That body would have been the FIRST thing I attended to if I were them.
June 10, 2011, 3:28 p.m. CST
Damn... yeah, I probably would have watched a few episodes of that...
June 10, 2011, 3:31 p.m. CST
Too bad we won't see it. She sure does rock that oufit.
June 10, 2011, 3:34 p.m. CST
..where she walked toward the camera. LOVED that bit.
June 10, 2011, 4:20 p.m. CST
if the guy behind the film, Joss Whedon was involved. David E Kelly is like an outdated Eddie Murphy joke. He made a nice transition from the greedy Gekko 80's to the Superfluous 90's quite well. But the horse needs to be put down.
June 10, 2011, 4:25 p.m. CST
And it would have been WRONG!
June 10, 2011, 5:01 p.m. CST
Gotta say. And an angry Wonder Woman, kickin' ass, is a good way to go. But David E. Kelley is the devil and nothing truly worthwhile was ever going to come of this.

Yeah - get Joss so it can get canceled again. They shouldn't make her all pissed off - she should be SEXY like Linda was.
Seriously, every fucking picture you see of Superheroes nowadays they look like prisoners. and it's not just Superheroes - have you ever seen those ads for Pawn Stars ? 3 fat guys and an old man posing like they are bad asses - fucking c'mon! Just from this clip you can see the studio mentality of "She has to look tough - all times -like she's wants to fucking kill someone " - Let me ask you, if you met a chic in real life who was pissed all time would you hang out with her on a weekly basis? Linda Carter didn't have to act tough because she KNEW she could drop a Ford on you if she needed.

i do like her boobies, still, that mole on her face, i hated it in the aquaman pilot and i still hate it now, i would never watch this show that was sure to be cancelled, just like the new charlies angles full of ugos excluding minka kelly

Is pretty damn ugly! I can't imagine any real graphic designer would come up with that, some talentless exec must done that.
June 10, 2011, 6:48 p.m. CST
7 seconds of usable footage from this turkey?!
June 10, 2011, 7:55 p.m. CST
What a waste of time of a video!
June 10, 2011, 7:56 p.m. CST
Your friends who were working on it were fucking you when you wrote this, Herc?

She can not walk around Los Angeles right now in that outfit. They have to pull a Captain America with her and make it a movie set during WW2 or hell even the Korean War who cares. Why they didn't go with Whedon's plan for a movie confuses me. I mean the guy who did Buffy I think would be perfect for this.
June 10, 2011, 8:32 p.m. CST
Good call killing that

I would watch that show with popcorn & Vaseline
June 10, 2011, 9:58 p.m. CST
so what happens to the pilot? Is it going to sit on a shelf somewhere or will it find its way to dvd, You tube whatever????
June 10, 2011, 11:25 p.m. CST
Oh well, I'll always have those pics of her running around the streets... and running... and running... and running... was that the only scene they filmed or what?
June 11, 2011, 1:27 a.m. CST
by jack Bauer
I remember as a kid there was an episode where WW was hung upside down from a rope, I almost had a cardiac arrest when those lush ample bosoms looked like they were going to pop out of the costume. I later read a snippet by Linda saying they did pop out.. Damn, I'd have given my non wanking arm to have been on that set..
June 11, 2011, 1:27 a.m. CST
Next time find a real woman to play the part and not some skinny teen!
June 11, 2011, 4:16 a.m. CST
or rather the fleeting one and half seconds of actual footage. the rest blew.
June 11, 2011, 4:19 a.m. CST
Cuz.... you know.... "she's a f*ing Amazon!"
June 11, 2011, 6:32 a.m. CST
Complete miscasting on the part of Palicki and a complete misunderstanding of the character. Nobody needs a lesbian version of Wonder Woman. What worked about the Linda Carter version is that even with the asskicking she not only looked great but actually looked and acted like a woman doing it. Nobody wants to see guys or girls getting their ass kicked by some hardcore lesbian.
June 11, 2011, 8:08 a.m. CST
Hell, I watched Smallville, Birds of Prey and even two episodes of The Cape, for heaven's sake.
June 11, 2011, 8:30 a.m. CST
Sadly that's probably the best part of the show. Think we'll ever get to see the entire pilot?
June 11, 2011, 8:43 a.m. CST
This was shaping up like they were adapting a She-Hulk series and retrofitted in another character that Joe Sixpack and Soccer moms would recognize. I could picture a series pitting Jen Walters struggling with balancing a career and superheroics. I could picture her complaining about her bad luck with men and dealing with her breast size. I could picture her dancing to Beyonce. Not WW, though. And given that David Kelley has successfully adapted several series using the legal system as a backdrop, it would have been a perfect marriage of creator and concept. http://popculturezoo.com/wp-content/gallery/marvel-mar10-tpbvar/shehulksensational.jpg http://girl-wonder.org/dimestoredames/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/She-Hulk-02.jpg http://www.lilith-ezine.com/articles/entertainment/images/She-Hulk-01.jpg http://www.dadsbigplan.com/images/uploads/2009/05/she-hulk.jpg
June 11, 2011, 2:14 p.m. CST
It's just her walking for two seconds. Also, that logo is stupid.
June 11, 2011, 2:43 p.m. CST
I would very much like to see people getting their asses kicked by a lesbian.
June 11, 2011, 2:52 p.m. CST
I love her but that just looked dumb.
June 11, 2011, 4:56 p.m. CST
...the way they did with the failed Aquaman pilot. I'm sure there's enough people curious about these things that they'd make their money back.
June 11, 2011, 4:58 p.m. CST
Yes her walking for 2 seconds toward the camera looking like Wonder Woman pretty cool. Don't be a fucking prick.
June 11, 2011, 5:05 p.m. CST
1. I'd have no problem with an ass-kicking lesbian superhereo. 2. It's not a stretch to say the amazons often lived as lesbians 3. There was nothing lesbian about that two second clip. Once you guys get out of high school, you'll start to realize who someone wants to bang is shockingly low on your own personal list of priorites, assuming it's not you.
June 11, 2011, 6:46 p.m. CST
She should be rocking battle armor to a degree. Using the Red/Gold colors is all good. but the spandex is dated and ridiculous. She's an amazon warrior goddess, not a WWE wrestler..
June 11, 2011, 7:57 p.m. CST
June 11, 2011, 10:47 p.m. CST
As a "look I have my mean face, that means i'm badass" look they have actress use these days.
June 12, 2011, 2:39 a.m. CST
It just doesn't work. Don't believe me, believe the guys who cancelled the show. Nobody wants to see a chick acting like a man would. Its one of the reasons The Bionic Woman tanked. It sickens me to no end to see this whole philosophy that whats interesting on TV is men who act like women and women who act like men. Most of the TV 'actors' running around Hollywood, a stiff wind could blow over and the women have to butch themselves up for 'credibility'. Heck, look at Lena Headey in TSSC and then in Game of Thrones. Night and day difference and she does a much better job in GoT.

I'm sure it'll surface somehow, somewhere. Hell, there are probably black market DVD vendors who are already selling it. Networks generally pass on pilots for one of two reasons: It sucks so badly that they don't want it, or it's so freaking brilliant that they don't get it. I'd be interested in having the opportunity to know which one this is. PAD

tremendous rubbernecker appeal. It must get out and be set free on the interwebs.
June 12, 2011, 10:36 a.m. CST
and it was fine untill...Liz hurley turned up, opened her mouth and said, ew yah...... then wb torpedoed the whole thing....
June 13, 2011, 6:06 a.m. CST
her spirit would not die... and just have it be passed on to a younger girl. the girl looks at her outfit and makes modern changes. becomes new wonder woman.
June 13, 2011, 6:08 a.m. CST
we all know what a great she was.......snigger...
June 13, 2011, 11:02 a.m. CST
should have included the word actress. there is an oxymoron. liz hurley and the word actress....

Those girls are just not hot enough, by a mile, to be Charlies Angels. Very disappointing, like this WW.... A David E Kelley She Hulk is a much better idea.
June 13, 2011, 10:25 p.m. CST
So Xena was the closest to a Wonder Woman show we will ever get now?!? Seriously, Superman and Batman have had shows on TV since the start, live or animated but still a show and WW CAN'T even get a decent show off the ground coz the suits don't know SHIT about the property! I don't know what got Wheadon off the project, and at this point I don't care just put him or SOME ONE that actually knows about WW to make a decent show! Hell, even the animated movie was good, just adapt that to a show, hell why not a movie.
