I don’t know that you can mess with perfection like this. I mean, go ahead and remake Rocky Horror. Remake Ben Hur. But leave my Electra Woman and Dyna Girl the hell alone!
Described as: “A smart, witty and fresh twist on the cult-classic television series from Sid & Marty Krofft Legendary Digital Studios… [the] all-new feature-length superhero action comedy ELECTRA WOMAN & DYNA GIRL stars Grace Helbig (“The Grace Helbig Show”) and Hannah Hart (“My Drunk Kitchen”) and debuts on all major digital platforms June 7.”
ELECTRA WOMAN & DYNA GIRL follows two superheroes Electra Woman (Helbig) and Dyna Girl (Hart) as they move from Akron to Los Angeles in hopes of making it big in the crime fighting world, only to find competition with other vigilantes and infighting amongst themselves.
I mean…. REALLY. How on EARTH can YouTube star Grace Helbig (lovely as she is) EVER hope to compare to Dierdre Hall (DAYS OF OUR LIVES‘ LONG-SUFFEREING DR MARLENA EVANS!)? Watch the brilliantly cheese-tastic opening to the ’70s TV show below. PLEEEEEASE. Then agree with me that some things should just stand on their own merits and NOT BE REBOOTED by Hollywood dunderheads looking to destroy the classics.
Is that the best thing EVER? Oh, how I wanted that saucer car. And those radio wristbands. And Dierdre’s HAIR. And those OUTFITS. The boots! My GOD! I’ll take OG Elctra Woman and Dyna Girl over Batman VS Superman ANY DAY!
