    Much of a fan of her in FNL as I was, Palicki is all wrong as WW. Doesn't have the face for it at all. Erica Dorrance delivers on all levels.

    YaY! Thanks harsh ;)



    I posted the above post number 93 in this thread on jan 22 2011. She was one of the many names I submited during this thread. Her name sounded so familiar and I couldnt figure it out i never watched FNL, I thought of her because she was a bad ass serial killer on Criminal minds.

    O no, she's gone from hot stretch pants and high-heeled boots (yum) to jeggings and soccer mommy Saturday shopping no-heeled boots (shrinkage). Must be liberated women who made this change. They seriously do. not. get. it.

    This show is soooooooo stillborn.

    Looks like she running in her sweats and ski boots to get the mail before the neighbors see her. I have never seen a show pre-tank on wardrobe alone, but this might be the first. Hard to be sexy when you are getting a chuckle.

    So you won't tune in just because of what she's wearing? Sad...

    A shows failure or success is not based on the wardrobe of the actors.

    The million dollar questions, that will determine if the show fails or succeeds, are:

    1. Can the writers write a good show?
    2. Can she act?

    People are fickle (most of them any ways) They want hot sexy boobies bouncing a wiggling and a jiggling. They want oops I dropped my pen I need to bend down to pick it up. No matter how good the writing is and no matter how good the actor is they have to be SEXY. Hell even in shows and movies where a character is supposed to be ugly they get a sexy looking girl, frumple her hair put her in farmer overalls and glasses. Our culture sadly is dedicated to the sexy. Look at GQ Cosmo 17 and even commercials. Hell i even watched the T-Mobil commercials cuz of that sexy girl in the pink dress. Good writing and acting alone does not make the show IMO.

    wot he said

    This isn't Shakespeare. This is a show about a woman whose eroticism via her body and mode of dress has been the mainstay of her character from the first comic edition. Plus plenty of shows have had good writing AND hot babes: Deadwood, Sopranos, Rome, Californication, Mad Men. You can have it all.

    This show likely will have none however.

    Wow, I think I might move to Royal Oaks, if the soccer moms there dress like that while doing their Saturday shopping.

    I suspect it was discovered that she couldn't run well in the high-heeled boots. I say that because the pilot scene they're obviously filming in the photos (which takes place in Hollywood, around Grauman's Chinese Theater) involves a lot of running.

    Winters,...
    They dress like that only in Thousand Oaks......

    "Reality" in running even in spike high heels shouldn't be a limiting factor in a show based on fantasy.

    People like to say that sex sells... but there is so much free out there, that nobody will pay attention to this show more than 1 or 2 episodes if there isn't a solid script and acting.

    You can take that to the bank.

    Meanwhile... people obsess over the costume, and I get that... but if the story is no good, then it really doesn't matter how they make the costume.

    Frankly, most comic super-hero costumes just will not work in the real world... so I'm usually fine with changes made for function... I'm way more concerned about the story, and I haven't heard much good.

    Well a show can survive on sex appeal and poor acting and writing Like hmmm lets see, Babewatch, perhaps. I never watched it, so I am presuming it had bad acting and writing. Pamela lee was just too much wiggly and jiggly. I like em small But that is just me.

    True. For now all people have to obsess over is the costume ... and that one shot of the "real" costume with her weaving through traffic isn't as "sexy" as the polished picture given before. It seems they are "toning down" the costume?

    One thing said about the Superman costume on the old Lois and Clark show. "They certainly won't be looking at your face."

    Superman's costume was workable ... although that is a lot of cape to stick under a suit.

    Hopefully Wonder Woman will have a watchable plot.
