    Well, I just got done watching the premiere. Overall, I thought it was pretty well done. I'll definitely be tuning in to next week's episode. BTW, I thought Katee Sackhoff was great as Jaime's twisted counterpart.

    I definitely thought it was good and I'll be tuning in again next week.

    I might be showing my age, but I couldn't help but do comparisons to the original "Bionic Woman".

    I've never really seen any of the original Bionic Woman, so I couldn't draw any comparisons. But I think this one got off to a very nice start.

    I watched specifically so I could tear it apart, but despite a few plot holes, I actually liked it.

    I didn't quite buy into the whole transformation happening over a few days - the whole tech thing wasn't explained very well. Then, with her in a very fragile mental state, they let her escape. After what happened to Sara/Katee, I would think they would keep a very tight rein on their latest "project".

    But I'll be back next week.

    Maybe that was one of the mistakes they made concerning Sara. Trying to keep too tight of a rein on her.

    Watched it, really enjoyed it- I don't get all the complaints about the acting that were cropping up. The only place I thought it divertingly patchy was the conversation on the roof between Sarah and Jamie- the way some of the lines were delivered. Other than that, it was a strong pilot, and I'll certainly be tuning in next week.

    It served its primary purpose, which is to entertain and I'll definitely tune in for another episode. It had a few problems though, particularly with the dialog.
    I thought the first twenty minutes or so went pretty well but then things got a little disjointed. People were speaking but nothing they said was revealing or explanatory they could easily have said absolutely nothing and got the same information across.

    I particularly didn't like that last exchange between Jaime and baldwhatshisname. "If we're going to do this....."?? This what? It's not that I didn't understand generally what she mean't but I could have used a few more specifics. Particularly as it seems she doesn't have much more clue about "this" than I do. Which makes her agreeing to it somehwat odd. In fact, I think her adjustment came too fast and that fight with Sara should certainly have raised more questions for her than she asked.

    Well, yes, the conversation on the roof was the most glaringly bad. I did think the acting was rather weak throughout, but that was the worst. I'm hoping it has more to do with Michelle Ryan getting used to her accent - we'll see. Although Katee Sackhoff was pretty bad in that scene too, and I know she's a good actress from when I used to watch BSG. So....I don't know what was going on.

    I thought it was too rushed - it probably would have worked better as a two hour pilot than trying to cram everything into one hour.

    So now that the official pilot has finally aired, can anyone tell me all the differences between it and the early leaked pilot? I hear the sis was changed and there were some other changes as well.

    Like Journeyman, the BW pilot wasn't spectacular but was certainly good enough to keep me tuning in next week.

    Pretty good but not great. I love Katee Sackoff as Sarah,though. She does an awesome job.
    Why is Sarah out to kill Jaimie's boyfriend? Is it just because he's part of the whole Bionic Soldier program that screwed her up(or was she unstable to begin with???) or is it a more personal reason?

    Liked the fight between Sarah and Jaimie.

    Jaimie thinks she has the upper hand with "the company" for lack of a better term, but I'm sure that she doesn't.

    Alright I loved her - but I like Starbuck so I am little biased.

    As for MR -- I focused in on the fact that she had full makeup on when she was recovering. What her boy friend/nurse put it on her? That was distracting. I liked the fight scenes - those were entertaining. I did not care for MR's accent suppression - that was distracting, because I did pickup on it a bit.

    I am not sure why Sarah is out to get her bf -- maybe because he created her? That doesn't make sense either to me since, she made the comment that "I am cutting out all the weak parts of me".

    Her little sis was good -- in what little part she played.

    I will be tuning in next week to see what it brings. And Suz, you're not the only one who made the comparison to the original BW.... the original was more fluffy, this is darker?

    I watched. Entertaining enough. Not the best thing on tv, but not the worst. I think it has potential.

    The acting and the dialog could use work as has been noted....at least it's not as bad as I had imagined after reading what people thought about the internet pilot. I especially like that Katee Sackhoff is in this since I'm a BSG fan and that she gets to be the "bad guy"...though her acting was a bit off in places.

    I'll be tuning in next week, especially since Wednesday doesn't seem to have anything else on to watch.....

    Yeah, I'm old enough to remember the first one too...

    Anyway, this new Bionic Woman looks like a "La Femme Nikita-Universal Soldier-Dark Angel" mix. I hate Jamie's sister, I love Sara and it is always a pleasure to see Miguel Ferrer; he's a great actor.

    And the father of Jamie's boyfriend reminded me of Nick Nolte in the film version of "The Incredible Hulk".

    But it was fun to watch, interesting enough without being THE great sci-fi show the world is waiting for.

    As a *never missed an episode of the original* fan I was fairly impressed with this new BW.

    I liked Michelle Ryan for the most part. However, I do hope they make her a bit more well rounded as time passes. I have to agree with the thought that she adjusted way to fast. My thought is that TPTB want us to think at times she just *goes into battle mode* and has less control than she lets on. Overall MR has an innocent quality that I think is needed for the character to stay likable.

    I am a huge Katee Sackhoff fan so I may be a bias here. I thought Sarah Corvis was an excellent villain. I thought her lines were in keeping with a character that is majorly un-hinged but trying to appear sane *at times* I laughed at her lines o the roof. Because in reality...what else could she truly want from Jamie but to just kick her butt...so making the sarcastic remarks was sort of like *Hello Captain Obvious* and I loved the understated *Ta-Da*

    If I had any issue with the episode it would be with the cinematography I got tired of all of the jerky movements and added SFX.

    Also TPTB know the show is going to have commercials...so the way that NBC cut those in was some what abrupt..they need to work on that.

    Next week looks to have more exposistion and back-story so it will be nice to learn more about every one. The pilot seemed more about just getting folks pumped up to see more. i think it worked for the most part.

    Overall I agree - it was okay. Not the best and not the worst. I think that maybe if they had done a 2 hour premiere it would've helped a lot.

    And...you are right ! ( great minds think alike ) A two-hour premiere would have been great.
