Title: NBC to Produce "Bionic Woman" for Next Season
Post by: Bob on May 14, 2007, 08:38:35 AM
Since it found an audience this season with superpowered stars, NBC will remake "Bionic Woman" with Michelle Ryan in the title role.

Wonder if they will have the same goofy sound effects?

We can only hope this show is nothing but mud wresting for an hour straight, each week.

Well I guess they couldn't get Wagner, she's too busy with her mattress gig.

That would take up a lot of her time......

Leave it to network executives to narrowly snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Heroes isn't doing great because it's got characters with super-powers; it's doing great because it's a fucking terrific show. Birds of Prey had people with super-powers; 'nuff said.

Michelle Ryan used to be in a soap over here.  Personally, I thought she was awful in it.  I'm hoping she's better now, though.

This clip isn't filling me with a lot of confidence.
