Bionic Woman Discussion – “Sisterhood”

This is certainly the most hyped new genre show this year. Based on the comments so far (as I haven’t had time to watch the episodes I’ve recorded,) I’m going to say that it’s not terrible, but it’s not the best new show.

    Lacks Punch (So to speak)
    Last night was better, but it seems to me that the best thing about the show is Katee Sackoff’s character. One TV critic went so far as to suggest they scrap the whole show and rebuild it around her. And I agree. A rogue, mentally unstable Bionic Woman would be far more gritty and entertaining than what we’ve gotten so far.

    It’s hard to imagine this was conceived by the same guy that was 1/2 of what made Galactica so awesome. I’m starting to think Moore’s been carrying Eick for a little too long.

      Heh, Jamie is killed and Sara has to assume responsibility for Jamie’s sister. Talk about some serious turmoil.

    will’s freaking dad?
    We’re suppose to believe that Mark Sheppard is the father of Chris Bowers?

    Are you freaking kidding me?

    Ok fine: Mark Sheppard is Dr Anthony Anthros, a brilliant researcher into bionics sent to prison for being ruthless and selling the secrets to the highest bidder … seems far fetched based on his appearance, but I’m willing to suspend disbelief and not judge a book by it’s cover.

    But I’m suppose to believe he’s got a son whose around 30? WTF?

    Know yourself???
    What I find totally unbelievable is Jamie’s ability to cut the connection in her brain from the camera to whatever transmits its signal. She is told to concentrate, squints and thinks hard, and we see some circuit going from on to off, and she gets a nosebleed.

    How come she didn’t go blind in the bionic eye? How come we don’t see headquarters going crazy ("We lost the picture!")? How come she didn’t think of the consequences of having whatever she sees with the bionic eye being transmitted back? Couldn’t she just wear an eyepatch when she wants to keep what she sees private?

    Is this an early case of jumping the shark?

      I think its fine. In order for the bionic eye to work it has to integrate with her optic nerve and brain. In order for them to see what she sees, they have to transmit a signal. Turn off the transmitter and they can’t see anything. I thought it was plausible…. for a show about bionics :-).

      I sure hope since Starbuck’s playing a machine on this show, that she isn’t one on Galactica. Fingers crossed.
