WONDER WOMAN: BECAUSE WHAT THE WORLD OF ENTERTAINMENT REALLY NEEDS IS MORE SUPER-POWERED EXECUTIVE BATTLES!


When I read stuff like this on the "new" Wonder Woman television series, then i just want to shake my head and go vomit for a while. Because, yes, Diana is now an executive, she has a basement full of nerds, a fleet of colored jets (G5s, probably), her arch nemesis is... another executive, oh, and there will be many pop songs, because, like, it is a David Kelley show.

This already is shaping up to be the biggest executive circle jerk in Hollywood history, and again, the disconnect to the reality of the situation couldn't be worse. Of course executives love it. They can see it, right here. That they are battling for good in the never-ending struggle!

The others? The normal people? They are there to be tools (and are in a basement, where those nerds belong), and what fun could crime-fighting be, if it weren't for a fleet of jets? Really?

Here's a word of advice to David Kelley.

Dude, stick to the lawyer shows.
