I got the Wonder Woman season 3 DVD set a few days ago. Although I was already collecting Wonder Woman's DVD sets, I was very anxious for that Shazam! bonus disc. It was my very first exposure to the series. All these years I wanted to watch this show. I know it doesn't follow the comic books at all, but still, to finally see an episode was something I couldn't believe. I hope its a good sign for the series to get a DVD series set.
