Storyline

Crime fighting duo Electra Woman and Dyna Girl are small-town heroes with no real powers. After a cleaning up of their little city, these two super friends are about to make it to the big time. Swept up in the star-studded glamor of Hollywood, Electra Woman (Grace Helbig) soon finds everything she's ever dreamed of: fame, fortune, a new arsenal of high-tech gadgets, the attention of every super-stud in town - but Dyna Girl (Hannah Hart) wonders what price must be paid for her newfound stardom? When the city falls into crisis, Electra Woman and Dyna Girl must battle evil dilemmas, growing egos and - of course- supervillains. If they want to save the day, they'll have to save each other first.

Should have been picked up as a series
24 January 2005 | by nameless_monsterSee all my reviews

I managed to acquire a copy of the presentation/pilot for the proposed series of Electra Woman and Dyna Girl (starring Markie Post). I was very impressed. The show took all the best parts of the original series and ditched a lot of the bad ones. Having Electra Woman/Lori be a drunken sleaze that lives in a trailer was so funny (she became that way because DynaGirl/Judy became a supermodel and left with Electra Woman's husband). Overall, the show was VERY entertaining and I could definitely see where it was headed. From what I understand, villains from the old series were supposed to return (I know there was talk of the return of Glitter Rock) and the biggest villain to come to the show was going to be the ORIGINAL DynaGirl (they were going to see about getting Judy Strangis to reprise the show - now what could be cooler than THAT?!). I think the cult status the original series has gained would have attracted an audience; but the show itself would have carried it beyond that. It was almost like showing you the grown-up version of the show now that we're older. The Network Definitely missed out by not picking up this show. This was done in 2001 and the new series costumes were sold at an auction - I doubt there's going to be a second chance for this,... pity.
