Trivia

At least 3 versions of the pilot episode were produced. The first version had Mae Whitman cast as Jaime's deaf sister, a character that sparked criticism from hearing-impaired rights groups when it was learned the actress wasn't deaf in real life. This version of the pilot was one of several widely circulated on the Internet during the summer of 2007; at the 2007 San Diego Comic Con, an edited-down, half-hour version of this pilot was shown to audience members as a preview of the new series. For broadcast, however, several scenes were filmed, and the cast changed with a new actress playing Jaime's sister, and the hearing-impaired subplot being eliminated. See more »

Brings nothing new to the table
24 September 2007 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

The pilot of the new Bionic Woman feels like it was made in 1997, i.e. it's not too old but nor does it feel new either. It brings nothing fresh to the table, and feels like it's trying to imitate other shows but not very well.

The influences of Dark Angel and Alias are clearly felt in the pilot, but both of those had compelling lead characters in involving situations. Bionic Woman has neither. The lead actress just isn't involving, and her character goes from being hysterical about her situation to confident within about ten minutes. To play the 'tough but vulnerable' card has been done before, and so much better elsewhere.

Story-wise it's very much the same. What is new, or exciting? Nothing. Shady organisations, seen it all before. Her special powers? Well, she can run fast. How about something a little more 21st century? Katie Sackhoff played a quite interesting character in the pilot, but is largely lifted from Battlestar Galactica. Sadly her character is more interesting than the lead, so outshines her on her own show.

But really, I don't feel the pilot had anything new or interesting to offer. I also didn't feel the pilot gave a lot of scope of what's to come. Maybe I'll be proved wrong, but I doubt I'll tune in to find out, and I doubt this show will last.
