IRAC Is Missing - S2-E17

Revealing mistake: When Diana is supposed to cut the power cables to stop the timer, just before she cuts the cable, you can see that all the cables are already cut and have a large, obvious seam in each of them. Then, when her hand goes through them, they all cut right at the seams.

The Feminum Mystique: Part 2 - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Wonder Woman is spinning the XPJ-1 around, she's seen approaching the jet with her hands empty and her lasso on her side where it usually is. As the scene progresses, her golden lasso magically appears in her right hand even though she never reached down to pick it up.

I Do, I Do - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: When Wonder Woman is chasing the golf cart, in the close-ups, the golf bags are not moving, but in the far-away shot, one golf bag is bouncing all over the place. When they zoom in, it's not moving again.

Knockout - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Diana escapes from the guy who had kidnapped the boy, she runs into the woods wearing a dress. When she starts to turn into Wonder Woman, she is somehow now wearing pants just before she changes into Wonder Woman.

Screaming Javelins - S2-E14

Continuity mistake: Diana spins herself into Wonder Woman before she enters the gym. Watch the trash can behind her - it suddenly disappears. Additionally, in the widescreen version, a security guard can be seen standing between the car and metal door, though surely Diana would not transform into Wonder Woman in right front of someone (the guard is not visible in the original fullscreen version). (00:35:45)

The Return of Wonder Woman - S2-E1

Factual error: When Steve gets attacked by the bad guys and Wonder Woman shows up, the lady in the car pulls out a camera and films the event. She sits still, the car isn't moving, and she does all the filming from the same position. However when she watches the playback, the film shows footage from multiple angles and varying distances, which is impossible because she and the camera were in the same spot the whole time.

Wonder Woman vs Gargantua - S1-E7

Revealing mistake: When Gargantua has Steigler under his arm and is carrying him down the pipe, you can see the cuffs at the bottom of the pants legs on Gargantua, even though he's supposed to be a real gorilla and not wearing any pants.

Formula 407 - S1-E12

Other mistake: At the start, the episode's textbox reads, "Fort Frazier Ordnance Testing Facility" with correct spelling, but in the next shot the base's sign reads, "Fort Frazier Ordinance Testing Facility" when it should actually be "Ordnance."

Last of the $2 Bills - S1-E9

Continuity mistake: In the first two closeups of Steve's two dollar bill, the serial number on the bill is "A16452841A", but when Diana kisses the bill and leaves a lipstick mark, in the next closeup it's actually a different two dollar bill with serial number "A77148841A."

The Man Who Could Move the World - S2-E3

Continuity mistake: Steve complains that he can't steer the Jeep. The Japanese doctor is using mind control to keep Steve from being able to control the Jeep. However, in several shots, Steve can easily be seen steering the Jeep despite the doctor's continued control over it.

The New Original Wonder Woman - S1-E1

Other mistake: Watch when Diana is looking at the newspaper. The headline reads "Steve Trevor Recovering Well, Now Able to Speak", but the story is something about a US Envoy and has nothing at all to do with Steve Trevor.

Knockout - S2-E5

Visible crew/equipment: When the hit-man is loading his gun in the alley in preparation to kill Diana, a crew member is reflected in the storefront "Humburgers" window.

Answer: The transformation twirling was invented for the 1970s TV series only, to explain her quick change from Diana Prince to Wonder Woman. However, it would have been nice to do a little spin homage in the movie.

Answer: She does. However, if she were to use any of her abilities as Diana Prince, everybody, including her enemies would be able to make the connection that Diana Prince and Wonder Woman are the same person which could be used to get revenge on her. By not using her abilities in her civilian disguise, nobody would suspect anything at all and she could keep herself and her friends safe.

So it was more a choice that she decided an Ice Skating move was less conspicuous than say, ducking in a phone booth like Superman? If Clark Kent enters a a phone booth, and Superman comes out, don't you think even the dull of mind would get the connection?

That's because Clark Kent has super speed so he can easily run into a phone booth quickly and leave as Superman as quickly too or whenever Clark does need to change into Superman out in the open, there's never around to see him change. It's a plot device that's really effective.

Could one man or gal. We're supposed to just believe almost everyone these two are around can't figure out of the obvious. Characters like Spider-Man and Batman can do this because of their masks, so these excuses just don't pass with me.

Answer: As Diana Prince she didn't have the super powers that Wonder Woman has, although as an Amazon princess she does have greater strength than normal humans. Diana's mom taught her how to transform her ordinary clothes into her Wonder Woman outfit (as opposed to just doing a quick change like Clark Kent does). Her outfit, which her mother gives her when she leaves includes the "golden girdle of Gaea." The girdle provides enhanced strength and heightens her other abilities. As to why she spins, it was a stylized choice to add something extra to the show and hadn't been done in the comics. Although they did change it up a bit due to budget and time. Later, Wonder Woman comic writers would include the spin into the comics, but by then it was generally to put her into her secret identity, not to give her her powers. But as to why Diana Prince doesn't have super powers in the 70's show, as opposed to other incarnations of her; the original TV movie pilot had Diana powerless like the character was during the Bronze Age of Wonder Woman (late 60's) when Diana decided to stay on Earth and became mortal. That series was not picked up, but a 2nd attempt at it, starring Lynda Carter, was and the series loosely based Diana on the first pilot but through magic could transform into the superhero Wonder Woman.
