the monkey ruins it all

This one's utterly utterly bad . With the double episode outing, at least those two episodes had the actual plane going for them to add some credibility. What do we have this time? A guy in a gorilla suit. Fine for Halloween, but really really poxy on the screen. Must say, this episode had the best facial close-ups of Linda so far.

My opinion of the show so far? It has heart, more, much more than the 2017 movie. The costume, of course, is a Christmas pudding. The 2017 version got it right. Linda's Diana is really blah! Too much blah! Off-puttingly blah! But must say, although my first impression back in the pilot was "yuck what a loser show" I have changed my opinion. Yes, there is something here. BUT for every good moment there is a bad moment as well.

As far as this episode goes, the overgrown monkey ruins it all. Felt like a fool for watching the bits inbetween the few Wonder Woman appearances. Popularity of this series was at a low ebb while watching. But good shots of Linda's face. I decided to take it in the intended spirit.

Goofs: She lands the Invisible Plane in the jungle...? Yeah, African bush is like that. SURE.

John Hillerman seemed understandably out of place, like, "what am I doing here? Somebody shoot me, please!" Actually, he could have been entirely replaced by that dummy used in his precarious action scenes.

There's no denying, this one was a bad idea from the start. Infantile, puerile, doomed. Cringe-worthy. Shares drop. But the previous outing did show anything can be expected. It can't get worse than this one...?
