Bionic Woman
« on: October 15, 2007, 10:43:27 pm »
Who else loves this show? I was studying for a math test and needed a break when it started and now I'm hooked. I absolutely love this show!

Struggling as a bartender and surrogate mom to her teenage sister, Jaime Sommers (Michelle Ryan, "EastEnders") didn't think life could get much harder. But when a devastating car accident leaves her at death's door, Jaime's only hope for survival is a cutting-edge, top-secret technology that comes at a hefty price.

With a whole new existence and a debt to re-pay, Jaime must figure out how to use her extraordinary abilities for good -- while weighing the personal sacrifices she will have to make. Ultimately, it's Jaime's journey of self-discovery and inner strength that will help her embrace her new life as the Bionic Woman in this new action-drama series.

Also starring are: Miguel Ferrer ("Crossing Jordan") as Jonas Bledsoe, the man who employs Jaime's boyfriend; Molly Price ("Third Watch") as Ruth Truewell, Jonas' second-in-command; Chris Bowers ("Rescue Me") as Will Anthros, Jaime's boyfriend, who performs the operation; Will Yun Lee ("Witchblade") as Jae Kim, the specialized operations leader; Lucy Kate Hale ("How I Met Your Mother"), as Jaime’s younger sister, Becca; and Mark Sheppard ("Battlestar Galatica") as Dr. Anthony Anthros, Will’s father and the man who originated the bionic technology.

I saw the first episode but haven't caught up yet. But...

Brandi Carlile's song "Closer To You" is being used in Bionic Woman tonight at 8pm central on NBC.



Isn't the chick from the UK?

I watched the first episode and liked it but I'm so behind in watching shows because I've been downloading this show since Wednesday has Kitchen Nightmares and Private Practice in the same timeslot and I don't have a DVR so I record them on the 2 VCRs in my house.

Lucy Hale (who plays Becca) really reminds me of Mila Kunis, especially when she first started That 70s Show. I was all O_o when I first saw her, lol.

She was on American Juniors that American Idol type show for the kids from 10-16 that was on a couple of years ago. I was thinking back then that she was cute enough to be an actress if the singing didn't work out

It is a compliment, although I'd say you look better than she does.

I have Dish Network Satellite and it wasn't set to record so I checked to see what was going to be on that day, and at that time it was private practice and another show before it, no bionic woman at all. I was totally bummed out.

She is, which made me wonder if that is her normal accent or if she just made it up. LOL
