NBC's new 'Bionic Woman': Hooked in 60 seconds

Attention! Your attention please. This is a test of the Emergency PopWatch System. NBC has leaked onto YouTube a one-minute clip of its new Bionic Woman remake (coming this fall to the network’s Wednesday-night lineup). Whatever you do, don’t watch it. I’m serious. I know what you’re thinking, it’s from the folks who brought you Battlestar Galactica, that Michelle Ryan looks so lovely, and it’s only 60 seconds… what’s the harm? But if you’re anything like me, with a faltering social life and two overburdened DVRs, this is not what you need in your life right now. And just because I’m gonna be plagued by the mean shakes from now till September doesn’t mean it has to happen to you. So once again, do not watch this Bionic Woman clip!!! You may now return to your regularly scheduled procrastination activities. Thank you.

    If I were the type of person who would watch a clip after being told not to, I might have observed that this version of “The Bionic Woman” looks just a touch grittier and darker and perhaps ever so slightly less campy than the Lindsey “Sleep Number” Wagner version I saw in my youth. But since Slezak watched the clip so I wouldn’t have to, I can’t say that for sure.

    Damn you dirty apes amn you to hell.
    Iwhen i heard of this i was like come on this will suck (hought the same of BSG) I freaked my tivo when i was trying to set a season pass for a show that wont come on untill4 more months

    Oops. Unfortunately, when told not to do something, I have a sudden urge to do just that. It’s a good thing I’m getting a TiVo!

    Sorry Slezak, couldn’t help myself.
    This looks like it’s gonna be hella good. I love this prewiew and I like that it’s one scene from the show (as opposed to a bunch of out-of-context scenes cobbled together) unlike your typical trailer.
    It’s very clever, only showing you a hint of action, and tossing the line “they’re making you better” in there. Also, those legs were freaky. Great stuff, can’t wait.

    Love of Buffy Summers, Sidney Bristow, Xena and other women who kick @ss +
    (Love of all things Slezak – his hatred of Chris Richardson) +
    Love of “Battlestar Galactica” Maker Man +
    My waiting for this show since I first heard about it months ago +

    Like I’m not looking forward to the fall for my returning faves, then I have to add this! Just so long as it doesn’t interfere with Lost when that returns in the Winter/Spring.

    Slezak, you bastard, now I have to bite my nails until the fall.

  • BJohnson

    Crap, I watched it. Now with Gilmore Girls being toast, I have an hour a week free on the DVR. Well it was free until I watched this clip.

    Hey, if that 60 seconds did you in, then I strongly discourage you from even going to the NBC website where they have a 4+ minutes preview of the show; preview that’s almost like a theatrical release trailer. No, you don’t want to copy this url http://www.nbc.com/Fall_Preview/Bionic_Woman/ into your browser and view not only the said trailer but snippets of additional scenes as well as interviews with star Michelle Ryan and show creator David Eick. No, it’s best you walk away from your computer now and head outside, where there’s life, and people…

    Dag nabbit, Slezak! You know you wanted us to watch that clip or you wouldn’t have posted it. You’re like my very own pop-culture drug dealer. Now, I’m going to be jonesin’ for more of that stuff until the fall.
    You should be ashamed…

  • FAMUstudent06

    This looks like it could be promising. But looks can be very deceiving. I will have to wait till the fall.
    *what was up with her legs? and why she knock the doctor guy out lol?*

  • Ed

    Slezak, you’re right, this is going to be a good show on Wednesday night. Which should I stop watching, Ugly Betty or start watching BW

  • Amy

    Maybe it’s cause I never got into Xena and I’m too young for the orginal Bionic Woman, but that clip didn’t do much for me.

  • Brad

    Wow, that was actually kind of good. Reminded me when Steve broke the news to Jamie in the original ‘Six Million Dollar Man’ episode. Obviously, she doesn’t know her own strength yet, which is why she rammed the doc into the wall. The emotional part of the investment looks good, but I would like to see Lynsey Wagner in this in some capacity.

  • Tim

    Now that Jericho is canceled, I have something new to watch/tape on Wednesdays.
