Did You Know?


At least three 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 »


In the crashing scene, it can be perfectly seen from the camera inside the car that the truck hit the entire side of Will's car. However, in one of the following outside shots, the truck just hits a small portion of it and in a different angle. See more »

Pilot of "Bionic Woman" should fill genre slot for Wednesday until "Lost" returns
27 September 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, LA) – See all my reviews

As a child of the '70s, I was somewhat familiar with "The (original) Bionic Woman" that starred Lindsay Wagner with occasional appearances by Lee Majors as Steve Austin of "The Six Million Dollar Man" which "TBW" spun-off of. Maybe one of these days, I'll re-watch them on DVD. This version, starring Michelle Ryan, was pretty imaginative with Jamie having a boyfriend whose father happens to have invented the parts that replaced those of her after the accident and previously also replaced those of another bionic woman played by Katee Sackhoff who's no good. Nice to see Miquel Ferrer here having known him previously from RoboCop and "Twin Peaks". Can't make up my mind if he's a good guy or bad guy. Not a great pilot, but interesting enough that I'll keep watching. Since "Lost" won't return until February, "Bionic Woman" should fill the genre need on Wednesday until then...
