    The only thing sadder than reading a rant about someone cheesed off over something that DOESN'T EVEN EXIST is knowing I'll never get that waste of time back.

    I think the OP is taking the show too seriously or assuming too much about the show. They haven't really given us every little detail about the bionics. I don't recall that they've said it's all mechanical or bio-mechanical or that they couldn't be stuck with a needle or even that they couldn't bleed through a bionic part of their body.

    I also think that Jamie is holding back, she's not going all bionic during her training, she's still learning!!

    I'm really liking this show and it keeps getting better. But I feel they could do without the whole "first bionic woman" aspect. I guess they just need a bad guy for the season.

    This episode was much improved. Although the whole "there is still good in you--I can feel it!" plot was lame back when Luke did it. Still, I'll give it a few more weeks.

    +1 on Jamie's walk... they sure like to put that on screen!

    This show needed a bit more humor so that we can get to like the characters better. I'm glad to see that the writers added some this episode.

    For a show with one character as the title, they sure do try to shove a lot of overlaying stories over far too many people. We could do this show without half the damn characters. Too much going on, not nearly enough Bionic Woman.

    Maybe it should been called Bionic Women.

    This show should be on SciFi Channel.

    Flash Gordon would look like a masterpiece by comparison.

    So far has this group done anything except create problems that they've then had to go and solve/fix? This is the sort of project that should be cut; it'd save everybody money and hassle.

    Except that it's a private concern, which makes Anthros' prison sentence for treason, for trying to sell privately-owned technology, curious.

    Serbian hitmen trying to assassinate a Canadian teen in a nail salon? Boy, is this show a train wreck. I read that last week's episode was supposed to be two separate eps, but they cut it down into one, which explains some of the disjointed feel to it. I'm not sure what the excuse was for this week's ep, which still had an aired-out-of-order feel to it. Odd that they seem to be rushing the conclusion of the "first bionic woman" subplot, when that would have been a good B storyline to run through the season (although maybe that's what will happen after all).

    Made me wonder - why is she working so hard to keep her bionics a secret from her sister, but then went headlong into revealing it to the punk kid she is babysitting by whooping up on the Serbs. I'm sure the kid will keep the "secret".

    Still, the show is interesting and doesn't appear intended to reflect our current realities. Wouldn't it be interesting if the good doctor didn't die in the crash? :D

    Obviously her grandmother has some connection to this stuff -- probably some genetic condition that meshes well with the bionics. Which means li'l sis could be a candidate, as well.

    I think Starbuck's having a blast playing the bad girl. She gets all the good lines. :)

    I think she's less concerned about the "classified" nature of the bionics then she is about freaking her sister out over the fact that she's a half-robot secret agent chyck.

    I loved her delivery of "I'm the first bionic woman... ta-da" line.

    I think a lot of people in TV shows, movies, comic books, etc. keep things a secret from everybody not because that's what people would do, but because that's what people do in TV shows, movies, comic books, etc.

    They're coming close to running that into the ground by replaying it so much.

    This show kinda sucks. It hit me last night. I just don't get where it's going...what is the plot here? Bionic Woman #1 wants Bionic #2 to help heal her. Oh, and Bionic Woman #2 is working for some secret group. Not. Enough. Plot.

    It's getting better but still has a long way to go.

    Some serious ripping off of a sci-fi classic in the sarah storyline. What is sarah's Incep date?

    I was thinking about the bionic arm thing due to the sarah push-up scene. It started when I wondered why sarah would bother doing push-ups since she has bionic arms. Then I realized that much of the work is done by the chest. Of course, that doesn't make it better since she claimed to have altered her chest muscles. But if she did alter her chest muscles, she should have zero problem defeating jamie due to sheer speed.

    Let's just assume for the sake of argument that jamie's one arm weighs as much as a normal arm. Since her shoulder and back were not replaced (to our knowledge) it would make sense to me that she is not that quick with her "hands" in a hand-to-hand combat since only a portion of the move could be dictated by "arm speed". Basically her arm strength would dictate extension and retraction of the fist towards/from her body but not aid in swinging or the like.

    If jamie ever really tried to lift something using "normal" lifting technique, her shoulder/back muscles would get strained.

    So, back to sarah, if she replaced all those muscles, she should be able to punch much faster than jamie with more strength.

    If the show were well-written, jamie would eventually learn to use her feet like a boxer dancing around the enemy and then jab/punch with her bionic arm, but never try to block with it if blocking required bionic speed.

    Why do people get so bent out of shape over this. Super strength has been a variable in just about every show where someone has super strength. The magnitude of Buffy's and Angel's strength depended upon the episode storyline.

    Somebody said Flash Gordon was better than this show? Good grief.
