Cast & Crew
Much like Nikita and Alias' Syndey Bristow, Jamie's simultaneously a babe in peril and a woman in charge, and Michelle Ryan catches the role's film-noir shades and comic-book angles with all due verve.
[Michelle] Ryan's star-making performance makes all of this intrigue worthwhile. She brings high-voltage intensity to the role, summoning a new and furious resolve after initially wishing herself dead.
[T]he biggest problem with "Bionic Woman" is the title character -- or the main one, anyway.
This 21st-century "Bionic Woman," whose rebuilt hero is estimated at having a $50 million price tag, isn't money particularly well spent - for the heroine or the series.
If I'd liked "Alias," this might have me all excited. But I didn't, so I'm not.
Created by David Eick of "Battlestar Galactica," it's a solid piece of mainstream science fiction that has both tight action sequences and ripe villains, led by Katee Sackhoff's kickin' bionic she-devil.
The girls, though, look promising...They see each other in their dreams, they're both mad at and distrustful of the men who remade them, and they look at each other with sincere appreciation.
[S]ometimes Bionic Woman was cool. There were some fun action sequences and some clever and witty exchanges. But as a whole this was a very murky, unfocused series that never could find a consistent tone or theme.
"Bionic Woman" comes pre-sold to a certain segment of the audience, which will probably buy the show a little time to find its footing. That, along with the presence of Ryan and Sackhoff, will probably be enough to carry it for a while.
This "Bionic Woman" pilot is a downbeat drag, but buried somewhere beneath all the moping is an intriguing show that might yet emerge.
The dialogue is often flat, and some supporting characters seem clichéd. Worst of all, some of the situations just don't make much sense, even for a sci-fi show.
