Wonder Women on PBS

PBS is airing a film about "Wonder Women: The Untold Story of American Superheroines." It's scheduled for me on Monday the 15th, but check your local listings!

I've been looking forward to this since I first saw the preview (above). I marked it on my calendar. I set up an email reminder from PBS. I will hurt anyone who interrupts me watching the broadcast. (Is it a comment on the show's perceived popularity that it airs when a lot of people are going to bed? It's on at 10pm for me, too late for any school-aged girls to be watching, which is a damned shame.)

It's awesome that it's also fitting in nicely with the MOOC* I'm taking about Gender Through Comic Books, but I was planning on watching it before I even knew about the class.

LOL - you've got the weekend to plan it. :D I would except for the fact that all my figure-mad friends are in Canada, and I don't think they'd make the 500 mile trip just to watch this.

I've seen the documentary, lots of great stuff and really, this is proof that the audience is there for a Wonder Woman movie.
