Critic Reviews

  1. 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.
  2. 38
    This show is so cliched that it actually contains one of those scenes in which a camera makes a slow, 360-degree circle around Jaime as she gazes skyward.
  3. 37
    Alas, while it's fine to have a villain who is more colorful than your hero, it's not so fine to have a supporting actor who makes your star vanish whenever they're on screen together. It makes you think that what this remake of a spinoff really needs is a spinoff of its own.
  4. Jamie is our heroine, the one we're supposed to like and care about, but as played by British actress Ryan ("EastEnders," "Jekyll"), she's a mopey blank, badly upstaged every time Sackhoff makes one of her all-too-brief appearances as Corvus.
  5. The whole place could use more lights so you could see what was going on.
  6. 25
    This Bionic Woman does not fail to live up to the original, it fails to live up to all of the other programs it wants to emulate instead.
  7. 20
    Dim. Ryan is not to blame. Jaime, rebuilt after a horrific car accident, must live in a grim, punishing world and associate with joyless characters. Speedy Jaime can't outrun this train wreck.

    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

    Was good. I enjoyed it. Heaps better than the original series. Unfortunately the writers strike in the US resulted in it's axing before seasonWas good. I enjoyed it. Heaps better than the original series. Unfortunately the writers strike in the US resulted in it's axing before season one was completed. They did only eight episodes and never gave it a fair go.

    I liked it , obviously it should get better if more episodes get made . Michelle Ryan was perfectly cast and played the part a little darker I liked it , obviously it should get better if more episodes get made .
