    I've seen worse...

    by tbrosz

    And in theaters. The fight scene wasn't bad.

  • July 21, 2011, 4:03 p.m. CST

    You know, if they had just showed some of this fighting action stuff...

    by tvs michael pawlak

    People would have been more onboard with it. At least for TV, the fight choreography is pretty decent for a superhero show.

  • July 21, 2011, 4:05 p.m. CST

    what the FUDGE was that? A MAD TV or SNL skit?

    That sucked But her tits did look good

    not perfect tits, 'wonderful' TITS

    by Pipple

    no 'wonder' this didn't get greenlit. she looked so uncomfortable calling them puppies tits... I can only guess women have a hard time denigrating themselves.

  • July 21, 2011, 4:06 p.m. CST

    Wow....and not a good "Wow"

    by Scorchy

    That was bad.

    The Fighting was the only thing thats looked alright

    by eric haislar

    Better then Heroes ever did. Still not how to Wonder Women.

  • July 21, 2011, 4:10 p.m. CST

    I've seen worse! (But, yeah... I've seen better, too!)

    by VanGoghX

    It'd be nice to see the whole pilot, just for the hell of it. NBC probably did the right thing, not bringing it to series.

  • July 21, 2011, 4:11 p.m. CST

    Perfect tits, ass, ...teeth???

    by Fico

    I mean, teeth are not unimportant, but that's not where I would've gone next.

  • July 21, 2011, 4:12 p.m. CST

    I wish it was better quality. SO I can really judge it.

    by eric haislar

    :)

  • The sickbed scene is a bit weak but the action scenes are pretty good for TV. I take it from the business meeting that WW would have no secret identity, similar to Justice League animated. I didn't really see a need for her to have one anyway. Does she have a secret identity in the comics now? I think that instead of releasing the lame costume photo they should have released the action scenes as this might have made people give it a chance. I would have been much more interested to watch it - what they did release made it seem pretty lame - these clips would have made me want to at least watch a few episodes

  • July 21, 2011, 4:12 p.m. CST

    Not allowing this out in the wild

    by iharlequin

    is the best decision ever made.

    by kurtisaurus

    That was... awful.

  • July 21, 2011, 4:20 p.m. CST

    as far as execution goes, this isn't half bad

    by oisin5199

    the fight scenes and the lasso effect, even the chase scene look well done. And Palicki is much prettier than I thought she'd be. too bad the writing and acting are terrible. We need a good Wonder Woman movie. Get Joss Whedon's script and film that fucker!

  • July 21, 2011, 4:22 p.m. CST

    No part of this adheres to reality

    by Josh

    The action is awful and unrealistic. Script is nauseating. Even perfect tits and ass can't help that

  • July 21, 2011, 4:25 p.m. CST

    Hmmm

    by one9deuce

    That fight choreography wasn't too bad, I'm surprised to say the least. And the traditional outfit in the fight scene too! Some promotional stills of her in that would have created more interest. Because her ass and hips look great in that outfit. And a pre-emptive fuck off to genderblender.

  • July 21, 2011, 4:25 p.m. CST

    Needs 100% more Whedon

    by paketep

    I'll admit that was better than I expected. I expected a complete disaster from David E. Kelley, though.

  • July 21, 2011, 4:27 p.m. CST

    She actually looks much better than I thought

    by GeneralKael

    The still photos didn't really seem to work very well but in the videos she is much better - still seems to young for the part though...

  • July 21, 2011, 4:32 p.m. CST

    Some of that didn't look too bad

    by elsewhere

    I think Wonder Woman would work better as a film rather than a television series.

  • July 21, 2011, 4:34 p.m. CST

    Think about it: Would Wonder Woman ever even say the word "tits"?

    by MrMysteryGuest

    That would be a crass word for an Amazonian to say in casual conversation.

  • July 21, 2011, 4:34 p.m. CST

    I think the internet killed this show...

    by GeneralKael

    Or more precisely, internet users. The backlash against the pants costume was so great that it probably made the execs back out of things. If they showed the fight scene in the warehouse we might have all thought about it differently. I dunno - now I feel kind of bad about wanting the show to be shelved - however it's kind of hard to make a total judgement call based on 3 clips. It has far less suckage than I thought it was going to be - it seems like this was actually intended as a superhero show with a different take on her alter ego, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. The leaked info made it sound like it was mainly going to be a Alley McBeal clone where she just happens to be Wonder Woman and this doesn't seem like that at all.

  • July 21, 2011, 4:36 p.m. CST

    Ah, it's probably just my hormones talking...

    by Nautilus_nrm1

    After next year's Avengers, DC is going to be begging Joss Whedon to come back for a Wonder Woman feature/television show.

  • July 21, 2011, 4:47 p.m. CST

    Wow! Words fail me

    by cookepuss

    This is just so wrong that I don't even know where to begin. 1. A foot chase?!? REALLY!?! Maybe they were going golden age with this, but WW has been able to fly for the past 50 years. NBC, what happened to your balls? Did they just... drop off? Even Heroes wasn't afraid to let its character fly. 2. No offense to Palicki, but she's way too soft to play this character. Wonder Woman muscular and toned to the point of being a fitness model. Everything about Superman's perfect chiseled look should apply to Wonder Woman. Palicki? Not even close. Like I sad, way too soft. I might buy her as Donna Troy, but not Diana. 3. Palicki can't act. There. I said it. 4. ARGH!!!! The writing. Quick! Bring my some hydrochloric acid for my ears! "Lawyer up?" REALLY!?! Is it suddenly 1983 again and WW's guest starring on Hill Street Blues? So, so bad. DEK should know better. His other shows are so much more polished, even when they're more relaxed - like Harry's Law. 5. We all know that the costume is bad. It looks even worse in action. 6. So, let me get this straight. Wonder Woman catches the bad guy. She lassos him in. The police demand that she hand him over. She's afraid that he'll *ugh* lawyer up. ... ... She hands him over anyway. .. .. .. .. Bitch, you have your LASSO OF TRUTH around him. Fuck the police. You're Wonder Woman! What part of "Lasso of Truth" don't you understand? And since WHEN did Wonder Woman cave in so easily to the demands of *shock* a man? Totally unbelievable. 7. A board room? *sigh* So, Diana of Themyscira, Paradise Island's finest warrior, not only eschews an actual secret identity, but also picks a career that puts her behind a desk? Law firm, cosmetics company, dildo manufacturer.... If it's not law some sort of direct enforcement then it doesn't matter. Congratulation, Kelly & Palick. You're officially worse than the 1974 Cathy Lee Crosby Wonder Woman pilot. At least that one got a chance to air. Yes, Palicki. You're officially worse than THIS---> http://tinyurl.com/3rnt4v4

    That's the only way I could see Wonder Woman working aside from her own film.

  • July 21, 2011, 4:58 p.m. CST

    anything's better than heroes was..pretentious shit.

    by alienindisguise

    I think the ww show would have had some potential but short sighted execs are always the ones to blame since they don't know shit about shit. I'm sure they showed this to a test audience of a d d riddled kids and 95 year old grannies and based on that, realized it wasn't for the public. Stupid fucks.

  • July 21, 2011, 5:03 p.m. CST

    rsanta74

    by GeneralKael

    I see your points - I think the idea was that she is living within the US society and would give a fugitive to the police if asked. However, the giant loophole is that if everyone knows who she is and she runs a big corporation, why wouldn't every single person she chases and beats up(and uses a syringe on) sue her pants off? Diplomatic immunity maybe? Would the USA really allow a foreign citizen fight crime with impunity within it's borders? I'm wondering if they thought about that. Also, I seem to remember from the comics I read that she doesn't always fly, only when needed - also for budget reasons they may have removed this ability. I dunno - there isn't much worse than the CLC Wonder Woman, except for the 60's pilot that failed - that was total crap.

  • July 21, 2011, 5:07 p.m. CST

    @kaelomont: Common sense killed this show

    by cookepuss

    Honestly, David E. Kelley is not the right guy to be helming this. Look at his highlight reel. LA Law Doogie Howser Picket Fences Chicago Hope Ally McBeal Girls Club (Remember THAT brain fart?) The Practice Boston Public Boston Legal Harry's Law Anything in there to suggest to NBC that Kelley was the right guy to bring one of DC's "trinity" to the small screen? See what I mean? It really is a good thing this didn't go any further. As good as Kelley's other shows have been, that'd be like Michael Bay tackling Macbeth. As with everything, you've got to choose the right tool for the right job. Here, Kelley would've just been, well, a tool. =P

  • Not being a fanboy, as I'm more of a Marvel fan, but something like this just confirms my belief that studio execs who commission these things don't know a whole lot or just don't care.

  • Sort of a gray area for a comic-based show, but...

  • July 21, 2011, 5:17 p.m. CST

    I've seen the whole pilot.

    by vadakinX

    I saw the entire pilot the other day and it just didn't work. Wonder Woman needs to be on the big screen. It needs to embrace the mythology, not shy away from it. And before some smart ass says it, yes I do think I could do better. Ha. I actually wrote a mini-treatment for Wonder Woman a few days ago that I think could be interesting of course Warner Brothers don't know I exist so um...never mind then.

  • July 21, 2011, 5:27 p.m. CST

    Hmmm....

    by Sorbo1980

    The action scene was decent for TV. The best part was the pipe being thrown through that dude's neck, but what are the chances NBC allows that kind of violence so visually portrayed on TV. The dialogue was shit though. I started laughing when the muscle-head dude said, "there's only one of you, but 20 of us." Hey, asshole, didn't you just see her throw a pipe through a guy's neck while deflecting bullets with her arm bands. I think she take on a few 'roid monsters. The writing was the demise of this show, not really the acting.

  • July 21, 2011, 5:42 p.m. CST

    I was never interested in this

    by Jaka

    Still not. I actually agree that it might make an interesting big screen movie. Or maybe a cable series. But not a realistic or a tongue in cheek tv show. It needs to be bigger, with visits to the mythology of her past and all that.

  • July 21, 2011, 5:42 p.m. CST

    Hmm. The action scenes did not totally suck.

    I would have been sold if the action scenes had been shown

    by ttomato

    The FX of them running/jumping through traffic was good, the fight scenes were better though the wire work reminded me of Heroic Trio a little? That she can kick several tons of shipping container and not kill with some of the hits she planted was a stretch. And no, the word tits doesn't roll off of Diana's lips so well. A better written line would have allowed her to make the point and stay classy... cuz that's how Diana rolls.

  • wonder why this failed, dialogue was a step up from those shity transformers movies.

  • And her voice was annoying as hell just in those two "dramatic" scenes. A real woman with some meat on her is what they needed, why did they cast this actress again????? The whole thing was like a fan film and not a very good one at that.

  • July 21, 2011, 6:38 p.m. CST

    Writing

    by Frojitsu

    Yeah, the action was there, and maybe some characters would have turned out all right, but... C'mon! Writing is what is going to make or break any show, especially a genre show which has to sell the goods to a broader audience. Everyone knows who Wonder Woman is. That's not the problem. Write a great script and THAT will sell the show.

    Awful.

    by xsikal

    Poorly written, poorly cast, poorly shot, and poorly acted. About the only positive is that the action was not horrible, by tv standards. Maybe in another ten years, they'll come back to WW and get it right.

  • July 21, 2011, 7:51 p.m. CST

    Her TITS did look great in that costume though.

    by Cureguy

    Do you know the ratings that NBC would have gotten just from adolescent boys alone? Through the roof! Hefner needs to swoop in and get this actress to pose nude as Wonder Woman pronto! She was done wrong by the suits at NBC and has to pose nude to stick it to 'em.

  • July 21, 2011, 7:51 p.m. CST

    Was that Cary Elwes I saw in the first clip?

    by Cureguy

    An underused very good actor.

  • July 21, 2011, 8:17 p.m. CST

    That hospital scene...

    by slappy magoo

    had dialogue that felt like it was lifted straight from Garth Merenghi's Darkplace. It would've been hack for the Lynda Carter-era Wonder Woman. I can't even fathom why this much was leaked, this should be Kelley's The Day The Clown Cried, something nobody sees, locked in a vault, until the day he dies.

  • July 21, 2011, 8:27 p.m. CST

    actually looks pretty good.

    by sonnyhooper

    the action is pretty well shot, the actress looks pretty good in the costume even though she probably needs to put on about 10 pounds of muscle. but the writting is pretty fucking bad though. <p> wonder woman can't say tits. she can't whine about being human. shes a greek fucking goddess for petes sake, let her act like one.

  • July 21, 2011, 8:28 p.m. CST

    Wonder Woman's problem is she's a flat character

    by sunwukong86

    the action was shit

    by john

    dialogue was shit acting was shit and paliki has no fucking tits...so no, they are far from perfect

  • July 21, 2011, 9:08 p.m. CST

    Looked like a lower-rung Syfy original series.

    by the dolphins are in the jacuzzi

    Yeah, the action was pretty good (at least what you could see of it; everything was so dark and periodically shaky - especially in the warehouse scene - that you could hardly tell what was going on half the time); but the dialogue was horrible, especially in the hospital scene. And I agree with several other people here that Diana would never say the words "tits" and "ass" in a public board meeting. Way too classy for that. She's royalty. They never should have taken WW away from Whedon. He could have made that movie epic. I hope Avengers owns all next year, so he can laugh in DC owners' faces as their stocks continue to plummet, being held aloft solely by Nolan, who will be done this time next year, and they beg him to come back. What I'd give to watch that. Tools.

  • July 21, 2011, 9:10 p.m. CST

    Yeeesh, talk about expensive looking scenes...

    by qweruiop

    ...no wonder the network/studio passed on it. Each of these episodes would have no doubt cost several million a piece, and that's not including ancillary costs like royalties and licensing to actors, writers, directors and DC comics. Why would any network/studio bother spending that much money on something as risky as this AND still hope that an audience will even tune in, when they could instead spend 1/10th the cost on a dullard reality show and still retain the same amount of profits from TV ads.

    Shit did you hear that shit awful dialouge!?!?

    by HollywoodHellraiser

    Kelley was making another lawyer show but tried to hide it behind a comic-book icon like Wonder Woman! If this doesn't prove David E Kelley is a hack then I don't know what to say!

    If WW is a flat character its because the comics industry is...

    by cookepuss

    male dominated. A select number of guys have the knack for writing female characters, but many of them them suck. Many guys write women in a way that doesn't ring true to how women really act or think. Never mind the fact that many artists objectify women as only a hormonal 13 year old boy might. Again, only a few guy artists draw realistic looking women, as opposed to porn stars with powers. There are some excellent female writers and artists who have handled Wonder Woman, but they are outnumbered. Most of what Wonder Woman is now is due to guys who don't always have a clue. Look at WW's early years. There's a heavy S&M and fetish vibe going on. Gail Simone types don't come along often in this industry. Comics are a sausage-fest. That's why Marvel was quick to highlight the few ones that actually do exist in the embarrassingly titled "Her-oes" and "Girl Comics" last year.

  • July 21, 2011, 9:34 p.m. CST

    larger than life

    by Thunderbolt Ross

    TV as a medium is not suited for Wonder Woman. It's a dicey proposition in ANY media, but TV is probably the worst for the character.

  • July 21, 2011, 9:38 p.m. CST

    No one has ever got the mythos right.

    by ReportAbuse

    She IS a Greek goddess, there is a mythos there to be tapped. Think Thor and Asgard, or Superman when a storyline delves into his Kryptonian heritage. Any serious WW attempt, tv or film, needs to get into that mythic aspect of the character and how she balances living among mortals with her demigoddess heritage. Also she needs to look a little more foreign and harder ... the one here looks like a creampuff. I'm thinking Michelle Rodriquez, Rhona Mitra, that sort of look. The costume is too historic to change, like Supe's costume, but they could do something with it. I like the original costume WW wore in the '40s, with the pleated mini skirt ... with shorts underneath of course. Maybe even give her a knee-length pleated skirt, vaguely ancient Greek-ish looking, that would have all kinds of cool aesthetic possibilities for swirling around when she jumps almost like Batman's cape. Again she'd have to have pants underneath it to avoid embarrassment!

  • July 21, 2011, 9:43 p.m. CST

    @reportabuse: IS she a Greek goddess? I seem to remember

    by cookepuss

    stuff about her being golem of sorts - made of clay and/or having powers given to her by the Greek gods. However, she's not an actual goddess. Maybe I'm mistaken.

  • July 21, 2011, 10:20 p.m. CST

    re: ANYONE who thought the fighting was good

    by LargoJr

    Look again. Watch as bad guys walk up behind her in fights.. they shuffle and restep, waiting for their turn to engage. That's called bad choreography. Kelly usually hides it with fast camera shifts and blocking, but watch for it. It's EVERYWHERE. I've always hated fight scenes that try to hide combatants standing around like humps with pointless distractive movements and third tier background actors hopping around into fram like an old hong kong kung-fu flick

    wouldn't one punch or kick from her to a mortal be an insta-kill?

    Action was horrible

    by Symposium

    Obvious wire work and man in a wig shots. I don't even want to talk about the other scenes. We were saved FROM Wonder Woman!

    This could have worked ...

    by Adrian

    ... if it was for some other heroine, not Wonder Woman. Say a woman recently inheriting the mantle of, for example, her mother, a teacher, not only learning to juggle the aspects of recently gained superpowers and authority, but the reputation of a woman who was considered to be perfect by the public at large. However, with Wonder Woman, there was, and is, a pre-established aspect to her characterisation that these clips clearly jar against.

    The action scene is better than tv quality

    You actually feel the superstrenght.

    I think she makes a good Wonder Woman

    i didn't get what was wrong with the doll though.

    Holy crap

    by Darkguardian

    This is like a BAD scifi original series. Note I said bad. So thats really saying something. I was wondering why they passed on this, now I know why. This is absolutely one of the worst looking pilot's I've sat through footage of. Wow, just wow.

  • July 22, 2011, 5:24 a.m. CST

    I want to see this just to fully appreciate its awfulness

    by theGoldbergV

    Fight scenes bad. Girl good. Hospital scene cheese. Boardroom scene unintentionally hilarious. Looks like it was shot in the 90s. Not up to speed on US TV standards and practices, but could they even say "tits" on NBC? All in all, it sounded like and odd fit, Kelly and WW, and from the looks of it, it was.

    Lynda Carter wept!

    by ZodNotGod

    Not really....WOW! Actually worse than the campy 70's version with the lovely Lynda Carter.

  • July 22, 2011, 7:36 a.m. CST

    Ugh...Heroes...what a heap.

    by ZodNotGod

    Still, it's better than Heroes....NO Ordinary Family was not a bad show and needed some time to grow.

    I heard the fucking 'Howie Scream' in the first clip.

    I'd like to watch the whole thing

    by Truxton Spangler

    if only for morbid curiosity. It's gotta be out there somewhere. Did Gary Coleman shoot a cameo before he passed?

  • July 22, 2011, 10:14 a.m. CST

    Wow that was a lot of not good.

    by Mooly

    The fight scene was cool but the writer was bloody awful. Terrible effects, bad camera work, bad dubbing (paparazzi and crowd screaming "we love you wonderwoman"?), horrible writing, bad acting. "Judging by his speed he appears to be super human!" Thanks for that exposition writers, considering all other pedestrians are standing still I just assumed wonderwoman was chasing a petty crook. It's just too bad the cops showed up and let the guy "lawyer up". I also like how the fight scene, although it was pretty good, starts with the lead saying they brought 20 guys specifically because they knew how good she was...then they all stand around doing nothing while she fights one at a time. And why would they have a show where wonderwoman beats the hell out of people and then try and be all preachy and "after school special" in other scenes? Who did they think their audience was? I also think trying to copy the original/comic costume was a serious mistake. It looks really stupid and out of place. They should changed or modernized it, like with the Watchmen movie, or something. Sure, comic fans would have been angry but the costume is just too stupid. It fits the toys and merchandising but doesn't look good on the character.

    Being a tad critical aren't we?

    by impossibledreamers

    Fights were good, and fairly pragmatic compare to the Lynda Carter cheesefests. But - they did like the 'let's slide the person to show her strength' a little bit too much. I love that she had a very aggressive attitude, again much better than the old show. This woman looks like she has no issue wanting to kick your ass. The Lasso - I think using the CG'ed lasso is miles better than a lame, limp piece of twine. And the fact that is whips out is a very nice touch. That all said - For the love of God, is it so hard to find someone who can freakin' write dialog anymore? There is a whole Writers Guild of out of work screenwriters out there! FIND ONE!

    She LOOKED Fantastic

    by Himbo

    And I enjoyed the action sequences. The hospital scene was good. So now I see what killed it. It was the David Kelley attempt to be smarter than the original source material. That office scene is what buried this show. Too bad. I could have watched Palicki walk around all day.

  • July 22, 2011, 11:09 a.m. CST

    Funniest part of boardroom scene

    by Bass Ackwards

    Was her "storming" out. Clearly a girl who hasn't learned to walk in heels yet.

    I had a reprint of All Star Comice #8 (WW's 1st appearance)

    by Damned if I can login

    And in William Moulton Marston's origin story Diana was indeed molded from clay, and subsequently brought to life by Aphrodite, I believe. Of course the character has been revamped and updated over the years, but in the original she was not a goddess.

    Action was not good...

    by Tom Fremgen

    Wonder Woman can go ten rounds with Superman, and she actually has to fight these thugs!? She should be slapping them all to the moon, not skipping reasonable well over a car. I doubt I could even finish watching the whole pilot if it made it to air.

  • July 22, 2011, 11:31 a.m. CST

    Whatchyou talkin' 'bout, Wonder Woman?

    by THE_CHOPPAH

    You get yourself well, Willis!

    by THE_CHOPPAH

    So, this was going to air at 10PM? So, they were gearing this towards adults? What were they thinking?

    @rsanta74 not the point

    by sunwukong86

    It doesnt matter who writes her, male or female, she's essentially a God. She's not relatable, she doesnt have any problems or crises that a reader could relate to. Same with Superman, he is a God. How do people relate to that? Characters that are too powerful are hard to make vulnerable

    OMG is it me?

    by Musicman247

    Exactly. She kicks a metal shippin container across the room in one scene and then kicks a guy in the stomach 5 seconds later. Does he fly across the room? No, he just falls down. Plus, what's up with the guy trying to tackle her in the hallway? He should have just bounced off.

    How much product placement can they cram into one foot chase scene.

    by Royston Lodge

    Logos flashing by for: - Starbucks - Disney - McDonalds - Budget Rent-A-Car Also, it looks like crap.

  • It's like running 30 minutes of commercials in an hour-long drama. No more than 15-second ads, you cretins, wake up already.

  • has this Pilot been leaked on the Torrents? now I'm curious.

    Why the Idiotic Changes?

    by Woodrow_Wilson_Smith

    Why must the comic version be discarded? Making her the head of a corporation? Taking away her raw power? How successful would Superman be if he was radically changed from the son of Krypton and the child of the Kents? What if Bruce Wayne was a relief worker/Batman ? I'd much rather see Diana as the (exiled)Ambassador from Themyscira who holds diplomatic immunity and is a more flawed character. One who loves to fight, more of a hard case than anything else. And add her buddy, Black Canary, who doesn't wear much more clothing, but pals around and mocks Diana and occasionally her belief system(as well as the sexuality of the Amazons)

  • It's just in there to give the executives something to cut so they can feel like they've made a contribution and, maybe, will be satiated enough not to tinker any further.

  • and held back on the stomach kick. Hopefully she knows her own strength and can compensate accordingly. Otherwise a playful "attaboy" shoulder punch in the office would take someone's arm off; every time she opened a door she'd tear it off its hinges; pushing an elevator button would result in her hand through the wall; she'd never be able to get dressed as zippers, buttons, clasps, and straps would disintegrate in her Amazonian fingers.

  • She has the most ridiculous costume of any of the main DC heroes, some of the silliest accessories, and kind of a dopey moniker, too. Which is a shame, because the overall concept (proud Amazonian warrior entering the world of men) has a lot of potential, and is very comparable to Superman in that way. Which is another hurdle - she's a female character, already saddled with some goofiness, having to compete with a comparable male character. I think there's a way to update her to streamline some of the absurd stuff, but this adaptation seems to have kept the nonsense while scrapping the substance. Wait, network TV did that? Never!

    Just saw the whole pilot...

    by bowtiehoon

    saw it by chance... No origin story in the first ep, they jump straight in a world where every knows of Diana and her being wonder women... i can see why they didn't pick it up, it would have been a risk...it was pretty lame but better than a really bad ep of smallville. Bit of a shame though, i would have watched it...then again i sat through 10 seasons of smallville, so i'll watch anything comicky :p
