The "fake" British accent that Jamie during her undercover mission at college is actually Michelle Ryan's true accent that she speaks in real life. See more »


Tom is on the other side of a glass door when Jaime is fabricating an explanation to Professor Samuels for breaking into his office, so he couldn't possibly have heard the details she gave him, and wouldn't have been able to back up her story. See more »

The Education of Jamie Sommers is a more fun "Bionic Woman" episode
10 November 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In this, the first Katee Sackhoff-less episode, Jamie poses as a British transfer student in college in order to investigate a possible suspect-a professor-of whoever is responsible of planting some chip in some returning Iraq soldiers that make them kill their superiors. She also falls for a teaching assistant who also becomes a suspect. Meanwhile, Antonio is tracking a Middle Eastern foreigner who's also suspected of selling these gadgets...This is the first we hear Michelle Ryan speak in her natural English accent and it sounds a lot better than her American one (That scene when she is talking on the phone with one of her handlers while still speaking in that accent as she's walking all alone was a highlight of the episode especially when that handler admits how turned on he is by it! A similar thing happens when a guy she falls for admits the same thing after he hears her "normal" voice.) Entertaining scenes of her just enjoying her "college fantasy" like switching with her roommate-a young Asian girl-her science assignment for one on James Joyce which gets Jamie an A. With this episode there also seems to be a sense of fun missing from most of the previous ones though many of those were compelling to watch. Since this ep aired two weeks ago, I'll probably review the next one soon...
