Despite Katee Sackhoff in the lineup, Bionic Woman just comes up a little weak. The story is cheesier than the old Lindsay Wagner episode. Take the lame story, rotten special effects and add to it a serious lack of Oscar Goldman, and you have one of the worst premieres of this season.
This one doesn’t even look like its going to grow on me. There are no characters that are at all interesting and nothing compelling enough to even stick around to episode two. I think funding should be cut on this bionic miscue. Don’t get me wrong – Michelle Ryan is entirely watchable, she just needs a show with a little more strength. Oh yeah, and last week I saw her in a much better film – Cashback. (Look for a review soon.)
