If you can think back to the hazy days at the start of this century, there's three things you might recall about the cultural zeitgeist of the time. One: Buffy The Vampire Slayer was at the peak of its popularity, anchoring the relatively new WB network with its combination of teen drama and supernatural superheroics. Two: '70s nostalgia was hitting critical mass, as evidenced by the fact that we got two Charlie's Angels movies. Three: Thanks to the success of the X-Men and Blade movies, live-action superheroics were starting the upswing in public interest that would lead to now, a time when we have nine friggin' movies about the Avengers.

Obviously, these three threads had to come together at some point, and some bright-eyed young executive at the WB hit on the idea of exactly how to do it: reviving Sid and Marty Kroft's Electra Woman and Dyna Girl as a cynical parody of superheroes, starring Night Court's Markie Post as a washed-up heroine dragged back into the game by a very chipper high school student. As you might expect, it didn't pan out, but the magic of the internet has allowed us to watch the 14-minute pilot.
