Lynda Carter, who portrayed Wonder Woman in the 1970s live-action television series, "The New Adventures of Wonder Woman," has voiced her opinion on Adrianne Palicki's revamped costume for the NBC reboot of the show, which was revealed on Friday.

Many have criticized the shiny new Wonder Woman get-up for lacking patriotism or looking more like a Halloween costume. Meanwhile, 62 percent of OnTheRedCarpet.com readers said that they preferred Carter's original costume over Palicki's revamped look.

"What's not to like! Adrianne [Palicki] looks gorgeous and I'm really looking forward to seeing David E. Kelley's new series," Carter told The Hollywood Reporter.

It was announced in February that Palicki, who starred in the popular "Friday Night Lights" series would play Wonder Woman and her alter-ego Diana Prince in the television reboot.

The pilot is spearheaded by "Ally McBeal" and "Boston "Legal" showrunner David E. Kelley. Elizabeth Hurley plays Veronica Cale, a villain, while Cary Elwes of the fantasy movie "The Princess Bride" portrays the CEO of Prince's company.

Carter also revealed that she would not be guest-starring in the NBC "Wonder Woman" pilot, but had discussed it with Kelley.

"I talked to David [E. Kelley] about doing something in the pilot," Carter told The Hollywood Reporter. "But with my new CD, 'Crazy Little Things' coming out in April and touring for the album, we couldn't coordinate our schedules but you never know what will happen in the future. Stay tuned!"

When asked by the UK newspaper The Times about reports that said she may star in a "Wonder Woman" adaptation, former "Transformers" actress Megan Fox called the character a "lame superhero."

Carter said the actress should not have "trashed" her former character.
