Not sure what those delivering harsh reviews expected. I'm old enough to remember the original Bionic Woman, and this is a decent attempt at a reboot. But it a show not quite sure of it's identity.

After a good opener the next 3 episodes are focused around a earlier bionic woman, and who has escaped from the mysterious foundation that made our heroine. It's an interesting idea, with hints of real darkness, but they writers don't seem quite sure what to do with it.

Episodes 5-8 drop that plot line entirely for slicker episode based spy drama with a dash of sci-fi. I thought these worked better, and were more entertaining. As the show developed so did the characters and by the final episode it really seemed to be finding it's feet. Shame that it got killed

I've not watched Eastenders in 20 years so didn't have any preconceptions of Michelle Ryan, but I though she was excellent. pitching the role just right. Unfortunately we will never get to know where it could have all gone.

Having read so many reviews which were less than complimentary I was fairly sure I would be intrigued by this short (and sadly only) season of a new version of Bionic Woman. I'm not sure what other reviewers were looking for in this series but I found myself quickly pulled into the world of Jamie Sommers and all the plot threads woven into the episodes. The initial episodes were perhaps a little overcrowded due to the involvement of Sarah Corvas (the first bionic woman) and this was made evident by the rather quick resolution to the storyline of Paradise Lost but I found the idea a very clever one. I felt a little sad that the later episodes seemed to drop the Sarah Corvas storyline but perhaps the idea was to continue that thread in Series 2 (which at present is sadly not to be). The sisterly wrangling was well played by both girls and felt realistic. The characters were being rounded out nicely but would probably have developed more as the next series was played out so to criticise them is a little unfair. Many shows I came to love had initial series which weren't as strong as later ones (Deep Space 9; Voyager come to mind) but the development can only occur if the show continues. Personally I felt this show had great scope for a future several series but sadly it was not to be and I, for one, lament that situation. Michelle Ryan was extremely good in the lead role and had some great back up characters, well portrayed, around her. If anything the final episode indicated the direction the show could take and the promise of what the future could hold in store had it not been cancelled. Let's hope that someone decides to give it another shot before too long. The only reason I gave it 4, not 5, stars is due to the cruel shortness of the series through no fault of the actors and production team ...... I wanted more!

Despite a relatively short run and lack of initial commercial success, this series deserves to be watched.

Most reviews here are either strongly for or against; there are few 3 star reviews. That is almost as true of the US Amazon.com website, where most American reviewers had no problem accepting the lead actress Michelle Ryan playing an American, despite her real accent being quite a posh British one, as heard when she is intervewed in the DVD extras.

I cannot fully explain why this series divides people quite so much. However, perhaps one reason is that the groups of people most likely to try this series are too disparate for it to be possible to please them all: fans of the original Bionic Woman Series from the 1970s; fans of the modern remake of 'Battlestar Galactica' with which several people involved in this series were associated; and British viewers who may remember the star, Michelle Ryan, mainly as Zoe Slater [Kat's sister/ daughter] in Eastenders.

Many series take a while to establish themselves and get into their stride, but the high quality of this one stands out from the first minute. Of course it has the odd shortcoming e.g. as in the 1970s original (and the 'Six Million Dollar Man' from which it was a spin off), the use of speeded up film to suggest very fast running is not completely convincing.

The 'Bionic Woman' character has (through her injured body being rebuilt with cutting edge technology) 'superhero'-like powers, but without the strange costumes and other weirdness of the Bat Man & Spiderman type 'Superhero' genre.

This is a series of adventures but also raises questions about how far science should try to fundamentally 'improve' the human body, even an injured human body.

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.
