Adrianne Palicki is hot. You can bitch all day about whether Wonder Woman‘s costume should have stripes or short-shorts or an eagle on her ass. Though her various outfits may have sucked, I could stare at that super-cleavage all day. Is that one of Wonder Woman‘s abilities? Maybe I’m thinking of Power Girl.

Above are some nice-looking stills from NBC’s “Wonder Woman” pilot, which was not picked up for series. It did sound kinda terrible. Reports were that the pilot felt more like a David E. Kelley show than Wonder Woman, which makes sense, given that David E. Kelley was the Executive Producer. Still, there’s a review from iFanboy saying the pilot he got his hands on wasn’t terrible. A relatively positive review shining out of the dark clouds of internet criticism and cancellation? That definitely takes super powers to pull off.

Yesterday, NBC picked up a bunch of girlie shows for girlie girls. Today it’s all about odd dramas, or “oddmas” as I call them. I’m sure that term’s gonna catch on.

The Playboy Club” will put on rabbit ears and pretend-flirt with you. Chad Hodge’s series stars Eddie Cibrian and Amber Heard, and will explore the sexy world of 1960s Playboy bunnies. Va-va-voom or va-va-blatant”Mad Men“-rip-off? We’ll soon find out.

Is the Big Bag Wolf bad enough to mess with the police? “Grimm” is a cop drama that takes place in a world where fairy tale characters are real. This sounds an awful lot like the graphic novel series Fables, so if you like that premise, definitely read Fables, so you can complain about how much better Fables is.

Finally, I’ve been lying awake at night for years wondering when somebody would make a police procedural with a “Sliders” twist. Now it’s happening and I can finally sleep. “Awake” stars Jason Isaacs as a detective who has an accident, causing his life to split into two realities: one where his wife dies and his son lives, and the other where his wife lives but his son dies. He should just hop to the universe where the sky rains donuts. “Awake” is showrunner Wonder Woman” series was not picked up. David E. Kelley‘s invisible jet has been shot down. Hopefully, this will leave Adrianne Palicki free to wear sexier, less-outrage provoking outfits in the future. (EW)

When NBC released the first image of Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman, we were like, “Yes. Okay. That looks like Wonder Woman. But how did you make Adrianne less hot?? YOU CAN’T JUST PLAY GOD LIKE THAT!!!”

NBC more than likely agreed with us and cowered to our influence, because they’ve revised Wonder Woman’s costume. And, um, what the hell? If we ever complain that a girl looks hot but less hot than usual, you don’t remedy this by taking away her leather pants. Well, yes. I guess removing pants altogether would work, but you should never replace leather with lycra. Unless it’s for some kind of tight top. Please print this article for handy reference.

And no offense to Ms. Palicki, whose work we thoroughly enjoy. Adrianne, call me.

P.S.: The second pic is obviously Ms. Palicki’s Teen Wolf-loving stunt double, who should also call me. (Collider)

Check out the magic bracelets on her, heh heh heh.

From football siren to inviso-jet flyin’, Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights) has been tapped (yeah, she has – *high fives*) to star in NBC’s “Wonder Woman” pilot. In the next paragraph, I’m gonna write about the pilot and how Wonder Woman is portrayed in the new series, but I won’t be offended if you skip to the end and look at that picture of Palicki lounging around topless. The choice is yours.

Written and produced by David E. Kelley (Boston Legal), this version of the Amazonian superheroine with the dumb lie detector lasso will require Palicki to be in phone booths constantly. She’ll play Wonder Woman, her alter ego Diana Themyscira, a billionaire CEO, and for some reason, Diana’s average-girl assistant Diana Prince. Two alter egos? And one of them is the assistant to the other? How would that– eh, you know what? I’m not gonna get into it, and instead I’ll just enjoy the picture below.

Oh man, hopefully they won’t ruin this show by adding a shitty leather jacket to her outfit. (TVLine)

Director Jeffrey Reiner (“Friday Night Lights“) is in talks to helm the upcoming David E. Kelley “Wonder Woman” pilot. The former frontrunner was the much-beloved McG, but he ran into a pack of angry Amazons who didn’t like Charlie’s Angels and bowed out due to… uh, ‘scheduling conflicts.’

As we’ve already noted, this show will take Wonder Woman completely seriously, with her lie detector lasso and invisible plane you can see the pilot inside. The show is about her busy schedule as both a crime fighter and a corporate executive, cause aren’t all women balancing busy schedules these days? Get ready to relate to Princess Diana of Themyscira, all women of the world. Or this could be yet another superhero blunder from the network that champions superhero blunders: NBC. (Collider)

Wonder Woman Lands Her Ridiculous Invisible Plane At NBC http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/wonder-woman-lands-her-ridiculous-invisible-plane-at-nbc/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/wonder-woman-lands-her-ridiculous-invisible-plane-at-nbc/#comments Sat, 22 Jan 2011 07:42:49 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=21593 There's a lot of lame elements to Wonder Woman, and if anyone knows about lame superhero shows, it's NBC.

A lasso that works like a lie detector? A plane that’s invisible, but doesn’t make the pilot invisible? There’s a lot of lame elements to Wonder Woman, and if anyone knows about lame superhero shows, it’s NBC. “Heroes” eventually became the worst show on television, and I haven’t seen “The Cape,” but it’s called “The Cape,” and that’s a really generic dumb-dumb name.

So it’s no surprise that NBC ultimately decided to greenlight producer David E. Kelley‘s new “Wonder Woman” show after all. However, this isn’t another campy, Lynda-Carter-sure-had-awesome-cleavage version. We’re told the show takes itself seriously, but I’m not sure how seriously I can take any superhero with bullet-deflecting bracelets. Don’t know if you’ve heard, but Superman can deflect bullets with his skin. Wonder Woman does it by accessorizing. I guess chicks need terrible superhero shows too. (ComingSoon.net)
