    okay since this is the show that actually aired as the second episode, i guess I will comment on this one now.

    I thought this was a great show. I liked it much better then the first show. Thought the acting was better and the overall performance was much better then the first. I like the direction of this show right now.

    so let me ask you guys a question about something from this show. Those individuals that had occupied the town and were gassing everyone to death, who were they? A rogue organization? and did they suggest that there are many more organizations like the ones that made bionic woman?

    something tells me, that they are hiding more then what we are led to believe. I think these guys are upto no good as well and using her for their eventual plan. looks like good shocking times ahead.

    I lost interest in this episode about halfway through. And I found the music to be really annoying.

    But I will still give it a shot and watch again next week.

    I didn't like this one as good as last week, but I was glad to see the BF die, even if it was from a shoulder wound.

    The shaky camera is become irritating - more so than it ever was on BSG. I almost flipped the channel at one point because of it.

    When all else fails, change channels.

    I actually think this episode was better than last week's. There was less pointless enigmatic chatter and the characters were less irritating. It's still missing something but...it will do. Despite the hype I don't think it's quite as good as several of the other new series that debuted. It seems, so far, to be the weakest in presentation.

    There was a whole section where Michelle Ryan lost her American accent altogether.

    I love how televisionwithoutpity is calling Sarah Starbot . Works for me

    I think this eps was way better than the pilot and I didn't even notice that Michelle dropped the accent.

    I don't notice the shaky camera work either.

    There were several lol moments last night and it's a shame I can't remember the exact lines and such this morning...blasted headache.

    I'm enjoying the show and will keep watching it.

    In all honesty...
    Spoiler:
    I hope that Will is dead...I didn't really like him in the beginning so for me him being gone wouldn't be any great loss to the show.

    I prefer to be called Sunny, Sun or SK. Thanks.

    TBH, I started losing interest in this episode about halfway through and went to sleep, but managed to finish the episode today via the NBC website. Anyway, it was mediocre to me, not really a whole lot going on and the main plot was uninteresting. I dunno, there's just some kind of "feeling" I'm starting to get from this show that I don't like.

    I was glad that the BF died as well. And I REALLY noticed the shaky camera this week- didn't last week. But here is was so bad in places I had to look away. It never bothered me on BSG, but here was just.....overboard.

    Noticed Isaiah Washington's "special guest star" credit. That's what you get for being homophobioc? Who would have thought.

    Otherwise not too bad of an ep, thing is, I'd just rewatched Pushing Daisies right before and watching this Bionic Woman ep for the first time couldn't hold me anywhere near as much as the second viewing of PD did.

    This was the first episode I watched and it wasnt bad, not great, but not bad, it has potential and since pushing daisies doesnt appeal to me it is what I will have to watch for the time being. i did smile when I saw the BSG clip on the TV when Jamie ran into the lone survivnig teens house.

    Mmm... Dunno if it's exactly like that, George, but I did think there was something suspicious about the girl.

    Gonna have to do better than this episode. It wasn't really that great/interesting. I liked last week's pilot better. And that sister is annoying. Can we kill or ship her off, please?
    IMO always implied.

    I thought this one was quite a bit better than last week's. The acting was smoother, and Michelle felt a little more natural in the role than before.

    I'm liking the head guy better than I did. And I'm interested to see what they do with Sarah - I like that they're kind of making her a sympathetic character.

    According to TVGuide.com, ratings fell by 19% for last night's episode. Hmm. Wondering how long this show is going to stick around.

    I caught the episode last night. I lost interest pretty quickly. I won't be tuning in again.

    Well that's to be expected I guess since last weeks was the pilot episode, so it makes sense that not as many people watched this weeks. But yeah I think I get what you mean.

    What's the general drop-off between a pilot and the next ep? Probably not that significant, but now I'm kinda curious.

    This ep was much better than the pilot imo. Good to see something happen, and her join the team.
    Science Fiction is an existential metaphor; it allows us to tell stories about the human condition.

    Isaac Asimov once said individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction, its essence has become crucial to our salvation if we are to be saved at all.

    Overall, I really enjoyed this second episode. I thought it had a decent storyline and pace to it. I'm still interested enough to tune in next week.

    It's a toss up for me. There were parts of the episode that I really enjoyed, and then there were other parts that took all my willpower to leave on (especially at the beginning of the episode). I'll chalk that up to it being a new show trying to figure out exactly where it wants to go. Hopefully within the next couple of episodes those "oh my goodness, why am i watching this" moments are drastically reduced.

    One thing that bugged me a little though, Will dies from a gunshot wound to the shoulder? Honestly? After surviving the car accident it's a wound to the shoulder that gets him? I guess it's more than possible, it just seems I don't know just odd, I guess.
