Electra Woman and Dyna Girl: the 2001 version

Posted on May 6, 2014 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Remember Electra Woman and Dyna Girl? No, of course you don’t, you liar. It was a 1970s superhero show that was part of The Krofft Supershow. Like you ever watched that.

Think Batman – think spoof of the already spoofy Batman. And here’s the first episode in case your imagination fails you.

You'd think that one series of that would be enough, but post-Buffy, all bets were off and networks were looking for superheroine shows. Trouble was, somehow the idea of superheroines is hard for (male) networks to understand for some reason, so the idea of a reboot of Electra Woman and Dyna Girl seemed like a viable idea. Except they wanted to spoof the spoof of a spoof and there's only so much spoofing you can do before you lose track. And this was the result.

Kind of puts that David E Kelley Wonder Woman pilot into perspective, doesn't it? Surprisingly enough, it was never picked up to series…
