Thread: Bionic Woman

  1. #1

    Bionic Woman

    So, NBC is looking to build a better, faster, stronger version of the old Bionic Woman series, and it's being done by "Battlestar Galactica" executive producer David Eick.

    Here's a little more info...

    ...and here's a clip...

    The clip looks good. I'm not a huge fan of the whole old show remake idea, but Galactica has been a lot of fun, and this could turn out to be a winner. I like that they decided to do the Bionic Woman, and not the Bionic Man.

    Seems that Katie (Starbuck) Sackhoff plays a villain, which explains why they wrote her out of BSG for a while.

    A little over a week ago, I got to watch a test pilot for a comedy they were considering called "Business Class." It reminded me a lot of Arrested Development, and would easily have been the best comedy on TV. But NBC, using logic that comedies aren't popular anymore (never mind that most of the ones on right now suck), decided to go with all scifi and fantasy dramas. I'm still a bit shocked that this particular show wasn't green-lit. I guess they decided that dredging up a turd like Bionic Woman was enough comedy for an entire network for a whole season. What's next? A remake of Greatest American Hero? It was bad enough when the movies were all s***ty remakes, without it affecting TV as well.

    i'll give it a chance. i think the time slot will be Wednesdays at 9 pm so that'll give me something to watch before Lost.

    Well... if it starts at the beginning of the season, you won't need to worry about LOST since that's not coming back until the end of January 2008.

    I would welcome a remake of the Greatest American Hero. I liked that show.

    This sounds mega-lame, and I bet NBC cancels it after 6 episodes. NBC has no clue what they're doing anymore.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    I'll check it out. I'd think that it could potentially be better than the original. Actually, I don't remember details about the original, but several years ago I did see Six Million Dollar Man reruns on Sci-Fi Channel. Most of them seemed kind of boring compared to what I remembered.

    I hold that the series has potential....providing she doesn't run in "slow-motion" to give her the bionic effect...
