    The girls, though, look promising. Granted, the initial Sarah-Jamie fight scene occasions the series’ first spectacular special-effectsy scene.

    Sarah Corvus has arrived to haunt and to taunt, to give our plucky heroine a sinister contrast that the show can't do without.
  3. Under Michael Dinner's steady directorial hand, it's dark, tense and conspiratorial, a far cry from the camp sci-fi tricks of its predecessor.
  4. The unnecessary reimagining from executive producer David Eick, is a lot darker than the 1976 original

    Bionic Woman, the disappointingly average remake of the Lindsay Wagner vehicle from the ’70s, comes to life.
  6. It doesn't bode well for this series, however, that tonight's premiere features a magnetic, dynamic, no-nonsense female cyborg who steals every scene she's in--and it isn't Ryan as Jaime Sommers.

    NBC's new Bionic Woman remake is a desolate slab of ice where any resemblance to human beings - alive, dead or cyborgian--is purely coincidental. It's hard to imagine a bigger modernized mess being made

    Just wanna improve the rating - in fact, I give it a 7/10 rating. Yes, it's not the best show ever, but I like most of the characters - Just wanna improve the rating - in fact, I give it a 7/10 rating. Yes, it's not the best show ever, but I like most of the characters - mainly Sarah Corvus - and episodes. Sadly, gotta agree it sucks sometimes, like in 4 or so episodes. Still, it's worth watchin; I'm sure you'll enjoy it if you're into great female character interaction, neat (but not very often displayed) fighting scenes and other things which I can't recall now. Just watch it like I did: when top favourites like Lost are not available and without much concern. ;) Expand

    The pilot was decent. Seems like it may be a good show. Pilots are generally not that spectacular because of low-budget, etc. I will The pilot was decent. Seems like it may be a good show.

    I was greatly disappointed. The plot has so many holes in it you can't even go fishing with it... Some very bad cliches, too.
