    I watched it on my 622 (Dish VOD) and liked it for a first show or pilot. Definitely set up a pass to see where it goes. It can only be better in HD.

    Guess I'm late to this party. I liked it. Not as much as I thought I would. Was definately a "setup" episode (obviously). But it has potential for sure.

    And The Chief from BSG was there! :)

    Yipee! They added some more CGI inserts of the inside of Jamie's legs as she was running!

    I'm only 1/2 hour into it, but I have to say those little additions make the show more exciting!

    I didn't notice those in the downloaded Amazon Unboxed version, and they certainly weren't in the "leaked" pilot.

    Oh how I love polished final "for air" versions. :)

    Of the new shows I have seen this year chuck,reaper, journeyman and now bionic woman this is by far the weakest of the bunch. I used to watch the orginal when I was a kid and was really looking forward to the show. It just seemed off very boring and choppy camera work and editing I hope it improves as the season goes on.

    I didn't hate it, but I expected a bit more. Can't exactly say what bothered me, but some of that I can chalk up to trying to cram too much into the Pilot.

    Also, my TiVo cut off the first minute or two so I picked it up at "Three Months Later" or "Three Years Later" - I don't remember which. Can anyone comment on what I missed? Was it pivotal to all the setup stuff?

    I hated the show. Maybe becuase I watched the original classic show. They need the bionic sounds. You don't even know really when they are using the bionics. It very much looks like Alias with 'Bionics'.

    I hope the show gets better and they add the bionic sounds.

    (And whats up with Bionic Woman #1? A Bionic 'chest'. Are her boobs Bionic?? :D

    The episode in the secret military base, with the military guys trying to take down Bionic #1 because she went looney and started attacking everyone.

    Snort. I know you were kidding, but see if you can bittorrent some of the original shows and look at them now. (The show is available on DVD, but it's Region 2 only.) I would guarantee there is no comparison between the campy mid-70s effects and what you're seeing in this one.

    Will there be fembots?

    Where is Steve?

    What really bugs me about this one is the govt people are kinda evil. It makes her character very alone.

    Oh well, I will keep watching hoping it gets better.

    So then the effects is what makes a show good or bad? Damn, I can't watch classic Doctor Who anymore.

    I can't stand classic doctor who, at least none of the ones I've watched in the past year. I might enjoy classic six million dollar man, but I was never a huge fan of bionic woman. I have a feeling that, once again, we're going to have dozens of fanboys of the old shows complaining about the reimagining in every possible way, as they did with BSG.

    I think it easily could have been a 2-hour premiere and they could have fleshed things out (no pun intended) more.

    Heh, I thought the same thing and I made hydraulic noises during the sex scene.

    Overall, better than the pilot but I can't stand the new sister. Bring back Egg.

    My friends loved the show but I'm still neutral about it.

    I thought it was ok, I thought the effects were cool enough; I'll watch another episode or two to see if it gets really good.
