The Bermuda Triangle Crisis" Episode: #2.4 - 7 October 1977 made use of the "Seaview" model from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea (1961).

First appearance of Wonder Woman's blue wetsuit.

The title refers to The Bermuda Triangle that exists between the islands of Bermuda and Puerto Rico and Miami, Florida where, due to the number of ship and airplane disappearances and other strange events, people believe that is an area inhabited by aliens, UFOs, doorways to alternate dimensions, time travel portals and violations of the laws of physics. The Triangle became a media sensation after a book on the area was published a couple of years before this show aired.

This is the first episode where Wonder Woman contacts Paradise Island with the red star in her tiara.

Most of the stock footage of the U.S. Navy destroyer used in this episode was taken from the film "The Enemy Below" (1957) while the stock footage of the submarine was taken from "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" (1961). Coincidentally actor David Hedison appeared in both the film "The Enemy Below" and the televison show "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea".

"The Bermuda Triangle Crises" Was Filmed At Point Vicente Lighthouse In Rancho Palos Verdes, California. Point Vicente Lighthouse Was Also Used In Several Others TV Shows And Movies.

    The Bermuda Triangle Crisis

    Once again we have a possible clash between the interests of the US and the Amazons, nuclear power controversial once again (and this is BEFORE 3 mile island). We see WW communicate with home via her magic mirror although I'm not really sure why she feels the need to transform into costume first, surely her mother would recognise her as Diana Prince. We have a downed US aviator as a prison of war being tortured which is pretty near the knuckle, the last Vietnam POWs having only returned a few years previously. We have some very blatantly installed stock footage garnered from the old TV series 'Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea' and the classic WW2 film 'The Enemy Below'. Best of all though we have WW in her skintight figurehugging drysuit which is really quite something to behold, especially for mummification fetishists (yes they exist, google it)The scene where she plants the mines on the side of the sub is quite blatantly shot in a swimming pool but we're so busy gawping at Lynda we really don't notice (which could be pretty much a description for the success of the entire series). Reputedly the initial Wonder Woman swimming outfit was a skimpy red, white and blue bikini but it wouldn't stay on Lynda as she did her stunts so they switched to the bodyhugging drysuit instead. LOVE to see THAT footage sometime!

    Love her punch the air gesture as she surfaces, rare to see her make such a triumphant action. We also see her in action as Diana, very nearly rescuing the prisoner. One question, if she's able to hold her breath for so long underwater how come she's always getting chloroformed, couldn't she just hold her breath? 7/10 worth it for swimming WW alone

    Trouble is going on near Wonder Woman's home: Paradise Island.

    This is a nice adventure from the series, we get to see WW change into a sexy outfit we don't often see her in, but whenever the episode is mentioned in conversation two questions always come up: "Is that the episode with the Seaview from Irwin Allen's Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea?"...then comes "what the hell was the Seaview doing in Wonder Woman?"

    It seems the totally unknown director of this episode also directed one of the worst episodes of Irwin Allen's Lost In Space, The Mechanical Men, so perhaps he was trying to re-live his Irwin Allen days by bringing the Seaview into 1977 Wonder Woman?

    Another point. Wonder Woman was a Warner show and Irwin Allen had recently jumped ship from Fox (where Voyage was made) to Warner so perhaps Irwin wanted to thrill his old fans by allowing Fox footage from Voyage to be used in a reasonably popular Warner show.

    Whatever the case, the Seaview may only get very limited screen time in WW but retro science fiction fans like me still get a smile over the fact that the Seaview appeared in the show at all.
