Series: Re-Run Theater
This is part of Feminist March 2018
Our yearly series paying tribute to vintage TV shows about empowered women gives you a magnificent triple feature:
First up, late '70s Sid & Marty Krofft produced-Saturday morning live action serial ELECTRA WOMAN AND DYNA GIRL, about a crime-fighting duo with highly advanced gadgetry and alter egos who work from a secret cave. This episode, they must thwart Glitter Rock, a maniacal glam star conspiring to take over the world with his hypnotic guitar riffs.
Jump to the mid '80s after-school animated series JEM, where we find world famous girl rock band The Holograms and their nemesis group The Misfits, struggling with internal conflicts.
We finish off with the late '70s hit prime-time show THE BIONIC WOMAN, a cybernetic enhanced school teacher / government agent. Here she takes in an extraterrestrial fugitive played by Helen Hunt.
Woman-centered commercials from the eras play at every break!
