Bionic Woman

I did something amazing last night.

I sat on the couch and watched TV.

Yes, yes, I know I do that every Monday night with Ani-Monday and every Saturday with Saturday morning cartoons, but this was a prime-time drama, on at 8 o'clock at night. The last time I tried this, I had the misfortune of watching part of the new Flash Gordan.

Anyways, what I watched last night was the premier episode of the Bionic Woman. I have to say it wasn't that interesting. Basically, it's a cop show with a girl that has super powers, and it even lacks the cool know-it-all status of Vincent D'Onofrio's character from Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

It wasn't a bad show mind you, it's just not that much science-fiction.

It's a gimmick show. Normal drama scenarios, and then you have the character with a gimmick.

The original Bionic Woman and Bionic Man were this types of shows. As was the Incredible Hulk and even the A-Team. Of course, I'm not really that surprised, it's not often that you get really, truly good geek shows, and I've been spoiled over the past few years with the number that had shown up, and was hoping that the trend would continue.

Oh well, I guess it's back to my PC during prime-time...
