    Bionic Woman, the disappointingly average remake of the Lindsay Wagner vehicle from the ’70s, comes to life.
  2. 50
    Despite her extreme makeover, this new Bionic Woman is mostly slick, dull and portentously sullen.
  3. Like young Jaime, it's going to take awhile for this show to find its artificial legs.
  4. The unnecessary reimagining from executive producer David Eick, is a lot darker than the 1976 original
  5. There's a distinct "Alias" overtone to her initiation into the dark side of the force. If I'd liked "Alias," this might have me all excited. But I didn't, so I'm not.
  6. Ryan seems too inert, not nearly aggressive enough for the role.
  7. Now we're back to Bionic Woman and Jaime Sommers--only under the surgical knife of executive producer David Eick, who had a hand in reshaping "Battlestar Galactica" to suit modern sensibilities, the rebuilt is wussier and darker than Wagner ever was.
  8. NBC’s show, which is more about fembot martial arts and slick “Matrix”-ish special effects than about character development, is oriented toward young male viewers.

    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.
