A re-make of the popular 1970's television series, Bionic Woman revolves around Jaime Sommers (Michelle Ryan), a bartender who is saved from death after receiving experimental medical implants. While adjusting to her new bionic powers and raising a rebellious younger sister, Jaime agrees to work for the Berkut Group, a quasi-governmental private organization that performed her surgery.

I really don't understand why some Tv series are cancelled. I thnk sometimes it just comes down to internal politics. I mean the start of the first season is a little weak, while all the actors find their feet, but this is true of many series. Ryan is often blamed for the demise of the series, but personally I thought more to blame was the rather subdued tone of the directing, which didn't seem to suit any of the actors. Anyway, what there is is well worth a watch and it really is a huge shame it didn't go further than it did.

I think this is brill good storylines and action packed. I think it's a shame that this will be the only series. I really hope ITV or BBC take this over and make more series. why is it always the good programmes they stop making when they keep the old rubbish that has long need to be took off the tv...

 A very disapointing series.

There is a very good reason why this series was ditched in America, its boring.

What was advertised as a fast paced, action heavy update of the original, is actually painfully slow and light on action. If seeing two women go through the same fight and same dialogue week after week is your idea of excitement then this will entertain you.

The plots each week are dull and uninteresting and rather than any feeling of saving the world all we get is a boring soap opera between Jamie Summers (the new Bionic woman), Sarah Corvus (The "first" bionic woman) and Jamie's sister. By episode three this all becomes very tedious.

As far as performances go they are adequate considering the dreadful script. Miguel Ferrer adds some much needed class but everyone else just feels lifeless and appear to be just reading a dull script rather than doing any serious acting. Michelle Ryan is actually very good and her American accent is flawless. She has definitely come on a lot since her days in Eastenders. On this evidence I hope she gets more work in America as she has the talent and charisma to be a big star.

Overall this is hugely disappointing considering the hype. If you are desperate to see it, just watch it on the TV. There are far better things to spend your money on than this.

 Awesome

This is awesome! A must buy for any fan. It's a shame that it was axed half way through the season. It had a lot of potential and the writers strike ruined it, that and the silly american viewers now tuning in.

 Great series which should not have been axed

None of the negative reviews should be taken seriously. This series was one of the best NBC had to offer. Michelle Ryan is a very good actress and did very well in the role of Jaime Summers. The special effects and storyline all work great and its definitely a serious worth checking out. I heard they made 14 episodes in total. I just hope ITV2 purchases the right to air the rest of the episodes.
