William Dozier, the fellow who brought us the Adam West Batman and the Van Williams Green Hornet, toyed with the possibility of a Wonder Woman TV series.

There was a full-length pilot script, but Dozier produced only a five-minute screen test. Even taking into account that this was a very early and very rough draft, it's easy to understand why he didn't do something longer.

It is harder to understand why he did this at all. The only remotely entertaining part is the shtick with the autonomous looking-glass image. It doesn't bode well for your main character when people are more intrigued by her mirror reflection.

Someone brought this to my attention a few years ago, but I never got around to watching it until tonight. Now there's no un-seeing it. Behold and despair...

...and here is the English "original." PPG fans will see the influence.

See, this is why I don't spend a lot of time on YouTube. It's like falling down a rabbit-hole.

And now, dammit, I'm craving coconut-cream pie.

Never heard this version before. It's not actually better, but it's neat to hear something "new" that's this old!

I think I'm a bit more like a dog. Every time my dogs see a bird, they go after it like they're thinking, "Maybe THIS one won't fly off." I think it's a guy thing too. When approaching a girl, we have to ignore the thought that she'll say, "Buzz off creep," in order to be the lecherous creeps we actually are.

There are a bunch of new blossoms on my serrano pepper plant. (It blossoms every time there's a storm.) Something tells me those peppers are not going to survive to adulthood!

Hatches all battened now, except for the window with the air conditioner. (I should take the AC out of the window, but I really really really don't want to...)

The city is urging people in "low-lying areas" to evacuate. I'm not in a low-lying areas, but I'm not happy to know that they're expecting it to be that bad anywhere in the city.

I order delivery regularly. The food and service are always excellent.

I ordered using curbside pickup. I was very turned off that when ordering from the website, it asked me to enter a tip amount. I prefer to tip when I receive my food, but wasn't sure I'd be able to do so since they were asking for it up front. The ordering system said my food would be ready in about 20 minutes. In "special instructions" I wrote that it would probably take me 30 minutes to get there. (I was picking up this pizza to bring to someone I was on my way to visit in Taunton, close to the restaurant but not close to my house.) The ordering system also asked for my phone number in case they wanted to confirm my order or had any problems or questions. I gave them my cell phone number. I got there in 35 minutes. I drove around the building twice looking for the promised "curbside pickup" spaces but didn't see any, so I just parked wherever and went into the restaurant so they wouldn't have someone wandering around the parking lot looking for me. (It was very cold out.) Instead of just bringing me my food indoors at the hostess station where I came in, they told me where the designated spaces were and told me to park over there. So I went back to my car (it was cold out) and drove over there. I hadn't seen the signs before because several large SUVs had been parked there; one had just left, so I took that spot. No one was in the other vehicles that were parked in curbside pickup spaces. Apparently, the restaurant doesn't try very hard to keep those spaces available for people who are actually picking up their food, even though plenty of regular spaces were open. I waited in my car a good five minutes before someone came out with my order. Actually, only part of it. One of the things I'd ordered wasn't available. This could have been handled with a phone call, or they could have mentioned it when I had been in the restaurant, or refunded what I'd paid for the item; but instead I had to ask for an alternative item and wait for her to come back with it - another 5 minutes. (It was just a bottled soda. No prep time required.) Insane. To sum up: Their predicted ready time was 20 minutes. I showed up 15 minutes later than that (and five minutes later than I had predicted) but still didn't have my food until more than ten minutes after THAT. You might wonder if perhaps my food was late because they had held off putting it in the oven so it would be fresh and hot when I showed up (a courtesy that would have been beyond the call of duty, but much appreciated). I don't know if they did or not, but regardless, the pizza was stone cold by the time I got it to my grandmother's house another five minutes later. Except for being cold, the pizza was good. But it was certainly not worth the hassle of the "curbside pickup" service, and I will never again order from any place that asks for a tip in advance. It just seems like extortion.

I order for delivery all the time. This is my favorite New Bedford pizza. The pizza is always fresh and they aren't stingy with toppings. Prices are quite reasonable, though the $2 delivery charge seems rather steep considering that we still want to tip the driver too. Delivery is usually pretty quick though. However, I've never eaten at the restaurant, so I'm not qualified to comment on the service or decor... but Google requires that I score them anyway. Go figure.
