    Wow, no thread yet. For the first 3 episodes, I have enjoyed this show. It was just mindless entertainment, but I had a hard time watching this episode. It just didn't hold my interest that much and seemed so unrealistic. I have a feeling I may give up on this show if next weeks isn't better.

    Nah, the sister's hot!

    And it's not like the thought the first three were great, but just kind of fun to watch. I think there is just too much other good stuff to watch (like I'm enjoying Dirty Sexy Money and Life much more than Bionic Woman).

    I assume that's coming. She can't keep telling lies. How did she explain this lie that she got caught in? Or didn't she?

    I just can't get into this. I've watched it each week but it's not grabbing me.

    What was with the over-abundance of the "bionic sound effect" this week? New show-runners having an impact?

    This show just gets worse and worse. The action scenes are pathetic, the whole bionic plotline is about as interesting as a 5th grader's plagiarism of blade runner, and the amount of nonsensical stupidities at their little organization make CTU look like the world's most respected brain trust.

    I watched the pilot, and I have no room for this in my season passes... but I just can't get myself motivated to get this show by 'other' means. Its just so so..

    I wish i could get the crap beat out of me like her handler did, and not even show a cut or bruise afterwards. On the plane we could hear what sounded like her breaking his finger(s) and nothing, he even punched her a few times with that hand.

    The sister's 15! But, yes, she should be told about the bionics.

    I'm still watching, but not because it's good. I've seen worse, but I was (unfairly) expecting another BSG. I find the action sequence hard to get into because of the camera work -- it's just too confusing. Last night her running and leaping had that aura of the first Superman movie -- very fake, like some one on a wire, kicking their feet. What's wrong with actually getting her to run and jump (with some wire assist) and then speeding it up a little?

    Katee is great, though, and until I can get my hands on BSG S3, and while she remains as a regular -- I'll keep watching. But if it doesn't improve, when the afore-mentioned BSG S3 comes out, followed by Lost and The 4400 S4 (not to mention AI) I won't have the time to watch everything and, sadly, this one may be gone.

    Better still, have her suffer a horrible accident that necessitates turning her into "The Bionic Girl" and she can be a sidekick.

    Just like Debra Winger in Wonder Woman. Mmmmmm.......

    This show would become instantly better if Jamie would kill Starbuck and tell lil sis what her real job is all in the same episode. ;)

    I am so sick of the lying motif. Boohoo I've been lied too. Boohoo I have to lie to my sister. It's black ops Government work!! What did she think it was going to be? Puppies and daisies?

    Actually, I'm kinda liking Starbuck--her scenery-chewing is fun, although it will probably get old if she's always around (I assume she'll be a recurring character, and not a regular). The only problem is, she makes Jaime seem even blander by comparison. I wish they'd hired an actress with a little more oomph for the lead...

    Didn't you see the scene where she was doing pull-ups? Looked like she had plenty of oomph. ;)

    Acting oomph, you pervert!

    (Because I would NEVER have noticed that myself if you hadn't pointed it out. Never, I say! Never!)

    I'm done with the show and deleted the SP.

    I've watched every episode, but found myself just wishing they would hurry up and end so I could get on to something more interesting.

    Yeah, tell her sister or use bionics to snap her neck and shut her up. I am so sick of the whining by the sister and bionic women.

    Starbuck would have been the better bionic woman. Much cooler and tougher looking.

    This show seems like an Alias rip off which I never could get into either. Remember how the Alias woman would be in Iraq and kill 50 people during the day and be back home for a dinner party at night with the oblivious roommate and friends? Well instead of the dinner parties we got the crybaby sister now.

    I guess then I couldn't complain that the dialogue was boring? :p
