she is sexy although I don't like the idea of this TV show I would not have problem seeing her in wonder woman costume

It's weird hearing Wonder Woman talk about her boobs. She has a great look for sure and accent. I think the second take was the best when she wasn't as girly and handled the sarcasm better.

She's pretty good. I can see her as Diana, but would love see her in a full feature WW movie. This show screams Smallville.

If she's complaining about her breast size, what kind of message is that sending out? I mean, really, she's not exactly flat chested.

Failure on the small screen. They're going about this all wrong.
At least they got the face right...
The acting? The physique (minus the boobs)?

major misses.

Oh, and the dialogue! Who wrote this drivel?!?!

It's amazing to see how much of a TV show or movie's effects, music, camera work and scripting goes into making this kind of [crap] acting look plausible on screen. Just her at a table, no effects, no soundtrack, no scenery, no nothing...she is easily one of the most terrible actresses I have ever seen. I wonder how many more actors and actresses are this disbelievable outside of the "Hollywood" magic.

What's really scary is that some dumbshit director watched something similar for their film and said "oh yeah, she's perfect!"

As much as I wanted her to be Wonder Woman... I would rather NEVER see this show air. An Amazon complaining about her breast size and the market value of her costume?

Yeah. This is a comedy of a farce of a lampoon of satire.

Maybe GL will change the minds of the idiots producing this drivel. Then again... with Ryan Reynolds as Hal... maybe not. Maybe this is the approach GL will take as well. Bad satire of comic heroes.

Wonder Woman deserves more respect than this. She's not a whore. She's a warrior.
