"Ann/Egg" is the character the original actress played on Arrested Development.
I watched the pilot last night. I wasn't impressed either.
I'm with you. Right now, I'm whelmed or underwhelmed.
Horrible horrible show. Knew we were in for a loser with so much blood in the first sequence.
My biggest problem was the whole "Jaime has lost 3 limbs in the car accident, Doc who was also in the car has a scratch, and feels so fine in fact that he's going to do surgery on her" thing.
Not to mention that she's nearly dead on Friday, and by Sunday, is back at home, no problems at all, no mental issues to deal with. Yup, just some magic bugs will make everything all right.
I'll give it one more show to win me over.
-chuckle- I had the same thoughts about the doc.-grin- And I don't think the timeline was as compressed as you think. As for the rapid healing, they did say they injected her with some tech thingie to help with that. She did heal the knife cut quickly.
Yeah, the magic bugs. Borg nanites?
The cover story for the sister was that she was gone skiing for the weekend, so I'm not sure how it could be much longer.
What... is she funny or something?
I decided to cut the SP. I had 3 shows for that time slot and this one wasn't one I really wanted to see. I loved the original Bionic Woman.
I liked this show quite a bit. One question, is only one of her arms bionic?
From what I have seen, /I have my doubts this show will make it through it's first season, implants or not...
Having a deaf sister, I'd wonder if we'd have an episode with Jamie fighting to get her sister the bionic implants so she could hear too. I guess we won't need to worry about that now.
One thing I also am curious about is why Jamie has a "sealed" record. I wonder what we'll discover about her once they "unseal it."
Jamie was also pregnant and lost her baby in the accident. I would have liked to have seen a little more angst about that (seems like that would be incredibly traumatic), but I guess the "crying in the bathtub" scene when she went back home was supposed to cover that aspect of the plot. So they didn't completely ignore "having mental issues when she was back home," but I guess a little more to drive the point home would have been helpful.
I don't think the sister is deaf. It is my understanding that she was for the originally shot pilot, but she certainly wasn't for the aired pilot.
Hence "won't need to worry about that now..."
Are her limb replacements fully functional by themselves and then tied into her CNS or were they a framework for the nanites to rebuild "Better than s/he was before. Better, faster, stronger"? Since the doc seemed relatively unhurt by the ultra crash, maybe daddy dearest hooked him up as well, only no implants?
I got the BBOS vibe from it.
Well, they did show that the front passenger side took the brunt of the impact - from both the semi and (after flipping over a lot) the phone/electric pole. It makes sense in a world where borg nanites exist, at least.
Count me in as feeling this thing deserved a two-hour premiere. The pacing on this thing was horrible. The worst part was that even though they introduced so many characters and so much happened (at least in terms of multiple plot threads), it was still boring.
Haven't checked out too many pilots so far this season, but this was the weakest. Even weaker than Moonlight. But, being a genre fan, I'll keep the SP for now...
