Bionic Woman - a half hearted review

Long day working so what do I do to unwind? Post, of course.

Caught Bionic Woman: The Pilot on my laptop last week. Tsk-tsk.

Okay, I liked the eye effect. Nice introduction of the nano-probes (but whenever someone heals quickly, you can expect a bloody show).

Problems:
Actress looks like Dawn D. to me, so since I can't imagine Dawn doing those things, it just doesn't work for me...

The pace was way too fast. Might have worked better on the TV, but I would prefer an origin pilot with some mystery setting up a boffo season, but they tried to do too much by introducing the first bionic woman and having a fight scene. Say what you want about the Six Million Dollar Man and original Bionic Woman, but they got into the interior of the characters before maxing out the exterior.

Speaking of the originals, the slow motion running and ba-nah-nah-nah sound effects may be cheesy, but I loved them anyway. This version doesn't have anything like it. She doesn't run much, leaps a lot, no cheese. I miss my cheese.

Not much heart either. An attitudinal sister who needs a bionic slap or two, a dead doctor and an Asian bounty hunter of bionic babes (okay, I liked the new Oscar Goldman, whatever his new name is). The labtech blonde kept throwing me, since she looked too much like the bionic baddy. Sigh. Give me cheese.

Won't bother with more episodes (partly because the network player was so bad).

See, we record the show every Wed. nite. Can't let the kids watch though. This is our new "Alias". But then again, we are far from the critic that you are. We just watch for pleasure!

Speak for yourself about celebration! Yikes. that sounds really horrible of me doesn't it? The sessions were amazing (though the worship not good for ppl with sinus problems). but I ended up spending most of celebration alone. However i did get to meet all of my awesome friends from Wales (was terribly dissapointed by the video). And I got to see all my old celebration friends(at the sessions). So why am I complaining again??? Oh well, i'll find a reason don't worry. . .

Now I am terribly curious about the show, just to see who reminds you of me and what exactly I can't be imagined to do. Is this a slap against my athleticism?

No, it's a promotion of your... um... mating morals, and parenting/sistering skills, and despite your love of swords and armor, your pacifism. :)
