Not so wonderful

Not too long ago, it was announced that Friday Night Lights actress Adrianne Palicki was cast in David E. Kelley's Wonder Woman TV revamp as the title role.

The reaction was mixed. Some folks were all for Palicki tackling the role of the beloved Amazon superhero. And others, like myself, were skeptical.

With the recent release of Palicki dressed in full Wonder Woman regalia, I have to say I remain skeptical. Hollywood has had major difficulties trying to bring Wonder Woman to the big and little screen for years. The public has Lynda Carter's portrayal of good ol' Wondy imprinted in their mind's eye -- how could we possibly accept another actress to don those star spangled bottoms?

And can we take note on the material of the costume? It's PLEATHER. This publicity photo looks more like something you'd find on the Spirit store's website during Halloween. It would be a cool Halloween costume, but for a TV show? Hera, no!
