An observation.

Been watching the first series of Wonder Woman on DVD the last couple of days. Absolute grade-A comedy genius. It's 1942, and Wonder Woman is fighting Nazis! Eek!

Anyway, the weird thing is this. One of the main jokes of the series is the incredibly bad dialogue. It's preposterous stuff. But, whenever Wonder Woman discusses Nazis, as is her wont, the dialogue remains exactly the same yet ceases to be ridiculous. "The Nazis are so evil that they won't be happy until they have enslaved all the people of the free world!" That sort of thing.

That's how evil the Nazis were: they made corny dialogue sound sensible.
