Matt Cutter: Okay, that officially *hurt*.
Mendelsohn: [treating a wound on Cutter's back] Gotta tell you - you are one lucky dog, you are.
Matt Cutter: Jeez! What the heck are you doing back there?
Mendelsohn: Making it okay. What are you going to tell the Frenchman? He's going to want to know where his shipment is.
Matt Cutter: Not a problem. I know exactly where it is. He paid me to pick the crates up; he said nothing about getting them back here. Besides he didn't tell me some idiot with an old German .88 would be shooting at me.

Savage, kind, knowing and innocent
22 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

The pilot Cutter (John Allen Nelson) is hired by shady customers who try and get rid of him later. Sheena (Gena Lee Nolin) rescues Cutter's life from double danger when he is stuck in quicksand and about to be shot, then they chase the bad guys together. Simple story for the opening of the new series. Its main purpose is to introduce the two main characters, naturally. Kali describes Sheena as "savage, kind, knowing and innocent", and it is a sign of careful updating, another generation onwards, that Gena's Sheena is more knowing than Tanya Roberts' Sheena was in 1984 and much more than Irish McCalla's Sheena in the 1950s. When Cutter once says "I don't bite" she returns "How do you eat then?" and it takes him a few seconds to realize she was joking, only pretending to be naive. Sheena 2000 also got a completely new skill. She can not just communicate with animals, but like a shape-shifter transform into them. I did not like the smooth, computer-generated morphing effects, but that is a matter of taste. Other than that, a promising start.
