    If there's a whole episode between the pilot and this ep then technically anything could have happened- complications, another attack, undiagnosed (or kept secret) medical condition, poisoned bullets... Unfortunately NBC has opted not to show us the ep (yet) so it's hard to say.

    Good point. At the same time though that raises so many more questions and issues for me. But I won't go there because for now I really want to go on liking this show ...

    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.

    Spoiler:
    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.
    Yes, I enjoyed it better than last week's episode. I find the direction interesting as well ... and to answer your questions

    Spoiler:
    They mentioned "other groups", so I'm guessing another rogue organization. Possibly others using bionics? Interesting, and personally - I like this type of mystery / conspiracy in shows, if it's done well - and so far, so good.

    The original BW - Sarah - didn't she mention something about someone tapped into her brain and made her do the things she did? Or was she just lying? hmmmm I definitely hope Sarah stays around for a while, and I hope they keep her as a villain and not someone being used against her will ... there's potential here.


    And on some of the other comments - still haven't noticed the jerky camera movement (guess I've gotten used to it?) And did not notice the accent changing.

    Spoiler:
    And on the teenager found in the town - interesting theory that she's the carrier. I like that better than her just having a natural immunity.

    The only thing that bothered me ... what was the timeline supposed to be from the time the news reported the city being quarantined to the time the teenager was found? I mean, it seemed like long enough (to me) for her to have walked outside, got breakfast, whatever, and noticed all the dead people and pets. And wouldn't a teenager be in school?



    I'll still watch the show next week ... it's held my interest so far.

    Something I found highly suspicious: the exact quote was that the survivor "probably has an immunity" to the stuff that was used. Probably?! I wouldn't leave something like that at "probably," I'd be testing to see if it's definite and if so, is there some kind of vaccine that can be developed. Dunno how much good it'd do since I think the gestation time was pretty quick, but still, I'd be wanting to know EXACTLY how and why the girl survived. Assuming she was telling the truth about her circumstances.

    I couldn't remember the bf dying in the pilot, but I figured maybe it was because I saw the leaked ep or something. Did they really off him because of a shoulder wound? Weird.

    This ep was a bit slow for my liking. I'm finding it hard to care about any of these characters and the dialog hasn't been stellar. I did like the BSG Exodus shout-out though (I recognized the music before seeing the scene on the TV, hee!).

    Look at some of the earlier posts and a few of the other threads. Apparently they dropped what was supposed to be the second episode and showed this one, which would explain the bf's death.

    And I agree with you about the pace of the show, so far it's been pretty slow and I don't see myself relating to any of the characters in any way.

    It was alright. I'm certainly not all excited about The Bionic Woman. I figure it's got one more episode to really grab me or I'll drop it without a second thought. It's not that I hate it or the concept, it's just not great. It's not bad.....and why wast time on just "not bad".

    So does that mean we're going to see an ep where the bf is walking around, no questions asked, and then dies?

    I should hope NBC isn't that screwed up. If there is a "lost" episode, maybe they'll work it in as flashbacks.

    Well.

    1. So these guys aren't government? Fine by me.

    2. Interesting debut for Jamie. So Will's history, that explains a spoiler I was given from a US contact.

    3. Liked the faster pace though.

    4. Sarah having been hacked into? Meh, I can roll either way.

    Overall this is starting to sound like something that's worth burning an hour for, even if it is a step down from BSG!
