    I think the new Bionic Woman show is very well done. The effects are not too overly done, and the acting is good.

    Quite true. The only thing it lacks that would make it a long running superstar series (as does the producer’s Battlestar Galactic remake) is a fraction of the original’s charm.

    I agree that the show is done well, but I remember the original Bionic Woman with Lindsey Wagner (sp?)as Jamie Sommers. Though it’s not bad, this new version doesn’t do it justice.

    Bionic implants :) I don’t see how that will increase her super powers but it should make good viewing.
