Around the dial

At Comfort TV, David fires up the Blu-ray to take in what he describes as an "almost perfect" episode on Wonder Woman: the two-part story "The Feminum Mystique," with Nazis, John Saxon, Debra Winger as Wonder Girl and of course the incomperable Lynda Carter as the real WW. 

I've written before about the British sci-fi series The Tomorrow People, because John has written about it at Cult TV Blog. If you've been intrigued by the stories, you'll want to check out this week's post, which links to all of John's previous posts about the show. Read it today, not tomorrow.

It's been a fast-moving year, which often happens when you're considering major changes, and so it hardly seems possible that we're already up to Christmas in July, but that's the case over at Joanna's Christmas TV History. Not for me this year, but it should be fun to read—maybe you've got a favorite to share!

Another name from the past departed this week, as Joanne Linville died Sunday at the age of 93. If you've watched any classic TV at all, you'll recognize her, because it seemed as if she was in everything at one time or another. Terence reviews her career at A Shround of Thoughts. Ironic; the day she died, we were unknowingly watching her in an episode of Columbo.

If you're a fan of The Lone Ranger, or just like good books, you'll want to check out the latest from Martin Grams and his co-author, Terry Salomonson, The Lone Ranger: The Early Years 1933-1937. Find out how to get it at his website. TV
