Just save some time and tell us how bad Wonder Woman 1984 is.


They made a sequel? Good god. I'll
never see it. Chris Pine was the best
part of the first one and they killed
him off.

Chris Pine is in the sequel... somehow.

Well, in the TV series, Lyle Waggoner played Steve Trevor. The show was set in the 1940s.

After season one ended, CBS picked up the show from ABC, under the condition that they reduce the costs of producing a period piece, by fast-forwarding to the current time.

In the 2nd and 3rd season, set in the 1970's, Lyle Waggoner played Steve Trevor... Jr.

Did they ever explain on the tv show how hey went from the 1940s to he 1970s with nobody getting older. Wonder Woman I can buy, but Steve Trevor and the secretary who was jealous of Diana?

Wonder Woman is immortal/ages very slowly if at all.
Steve Trevor was replaced on the show by Steve Trevor Jr, thus the seeming lack of age change there.
Lynda Carter and Lyle Waggoner were the only cast retained for season 2, afaik.

Just got back from one of the first showings.

Not as good as the first one (never expected it to be - the section of the book with the Losers as adults isn't as compelling as the kids stuff). Still enjoyable if you're a Stephen King fan.

Didn't feel *too* long at 2 hrs 45 mins, but still could have probably used some trimming. They added lots of flashbacks to the kids having more encounters with "it" that weren't in the book. I kept thinking, "if this happened, why didn't they just show it in the first movie?" But they were pretty cool sequences so I'm not really complaining.

They filmed this 2 years after the first one, so some of the child actors had aged significantly which means there is some really bad CGI de-aging effects on a couple of the them in a few scenes that I found distracting.

And the first one SUCKED. If you
think the first one was great,
please list the great things because
I missed all of them.

Iím looking forward to this.

After first watching the TV movie several years ago, I wondered what was up with the weird tension between the characters in part II. Then I read the book and realized that was a homage to the weird pre-teen sewer orgie.

I think Stephan King may have written that on one of his cocaine/alcohol benders.

Wonder Woman has been on a rerun network. I always remembered the show, from watching it when I was a teen, being in modern times, and then eventually they introduced really cheesy computers/cute robot with flashing lights.

The rerun I saw was clearly set in WWII, but Steve Trevor was in it. That got me curious so I searched the internet. I think the Wikipedia article has most everything that I found.
