    With Campy stuff like this with cookie cutter special effects, the people involved with it can take two ways of going about it:1. Do it grudgingly, for the paycheck.2. Have fun with it and revel in it’s particular goofiness.Fortunataly, Electrawoman and Dynagirl was made by people who seem to occupy the second catagory.Both Dedre and Judy look like they are having a blast being in those outfits and trotting around on those high school play style sets. Not too mention holding up the gadgets that have the standard electronic switch buttons that you can buy from Radio Shack.Judy puts a lot of “oommmph” in her every “Electa…” exclamation. They both seem to get a kick out of uttering the campy cornball dialog.Electrawoman and Dynagirl is of course a blow by blow rip off of Batman and Robin. Complete with the underground cave, the special car (which looks like a disco dune buggy), flamboyant over the top villians and the duel older and younger costumed heroes whom you always suspected were just a bit too close for comfort.For us guys though, Electrawoman and Dynagirl are 10 times more adorable than Batman and Robin.The wobbely special effects really fun to see. It takes you back to the time when you were young and you found a way in your mind to believe even the worst special effects.For the Children of 70′s pop culture, you can’t go wrong with this tape. You’ll have tons of Electrafun. I wish it was a four episode tape instead of a two episode deal though.The quality of the tape is the best that it can be. It has the soft look common for 1970′s videotaped programs but retains the clean, new look of video. Which makes it look a little weird considering the vintage…

    I agree with other reviewers who thought the special effects were laughable…truth is, Electra Woman & DynaGirl lasted only eight episodes for the chief reason that it was, perhaps, far ahead of its time. The Glitter Rock episode was far better than the Sorcerer one, mainly because many of the technological features, such as satellites, electronic eyes and Crimescope’s fax machine were presented in a brilliant fashion for 1976. The Glitter Rock story also led to a ninth episode of EWDG, “Blood On Her Hands”, which can only be found in printed form on the EWDG website. I look forward to the other six episodes being released by Rhino.

    Okay, I’ll admit the stories are silly, the special effects are laughable, and the performances are, at best, enthusiastic, but if you’re the right age, and grew up during a time when Saturday morning television really meant something, then the shows of Sid and Marty Krofft are already a treasured memory. ElectraWoman and DynaGirl was always my favorite, and it was a wonderful nostalgic rush to see these episodes again. Great, great stuff.

    Having a ho-hum kind of day? Need some pure escapism? Let Electra Woman and Dyna Girl take you away from it all~ These gals are just too darn cute, and get the job done looking like they just stepped out of a Breck commercial! I have a friend who watches just to see Deidre Hall in her spandex! So jack up that age range to 28!

    As a young girl I would run to the TV every Saturday morning with my bowl of cereal to watch Electra Woman. She was gorgeous…she was sassy…she always outsmarted the bad guys…and she had a really REALLY cool outfit. ;>Now, all these years later, I am still a huge fan of the lovely Deidre Hall. But for many reasons other than just my childhood fixation on Electra Woman. She’s warm, gracious, witty and exudes a regal style that puts her in an elite class of true ladies in the entertainment industry.How thrilling it was to see that Electra Woman & Dyna Girl was being made available on videotape. It’s a creative, cute and fun program that’s sure to entertain the children of today as much as it did 25 years ago when they graced the TV screen. In a day of Teletubbies and Pokemon, I can say Electra Woman will bring a refreshing smile to your TV and be a great new hero for your children.I give Ms. Hall and this new release each a perfect 5-star rating. I know you will all enjoy this wonderful blast from the past!
