The Bionic Beauty

I haven't really had the time to watch the new TV version of Bionic Woman on NBC, but based on what I've read it takes liberties with both the original source material and the older Lindsay Wagner TV classic.

Honestly, nothing about the show really interested me enough to check it out ...... until (and you knew that this was coming) I saw some photos of British actress Michelle Ryan who plays the new Jaime Sommers.

Wow! What a hottie.

I'm gonna have to "break down" and check it out after all, as soon as the writers strike allows more episodes to go into production.

I just hope that Oscar Goldman is still around to "fix me" if Michelle has an ongoing effect as strong as my initial reaction to this photo. [And there are better ones still floating around the net for you avid surfers].

We watched the first few episodes and universally agreed it was a poorly produced and weak series. It is possible the series got better in later episodes but there was just too much other good new stuff on this past season to clog up with my tivo with a ho-hummer like this one. Michelle Ryan is a hottie though, but not nearly enough reason to watch BW.

Thanks for the heads up, karswell.
I doubt that I would have watched it anyway.

A few episodes of Lost are about to be aired, and Battlestar: Galactica will be back in a few months.

I will be seeking out some more "nice" photos of Ryan though. Grrrr!

I'd really like to see Pushing Daisies get back on the air too.

That's another one that I've missed out on karswell.

But I will trade you another direct-to-dvd Babylon 5 movie, but it would be nice to have a few more cast members in the mix on the next go round.
