Eh. The show never did it for me.

You mean that chick wasn't actually a cyborg? You'd never know by her acting.
 
2008-03-20 12:35:00 PM
They wasted an opportunity with bad writing, and giving her a bratty melodramatic little sister.
It was more like the bionic Gilmore girls.

Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles owned this, anyway.

Now if only they can recast the Emotard playing John

Yes, it does, on both counts

QFT.

It's really hard to frak up hot kickass cyborgs. But Bionic Woman managed to do it. Michelle Ryan is hot, but it's all about the Glau.

baorao: You mean that chick wasn't actually a cyborg? You'd never know by her acting.

She was just acting in the fine bionic tradition of Lee Majors and Brent Spiner*

*although, at least in Spiner's case, the robotic acting was an intentional part of the characterization

Can't say I'm all that surprised. Show was bloody awful.

I know. It has a hot gal in the lead, but that's not a "Get Out of Jail Free" card if the show sucks. Charmed had three attractive gals in the lead, and it was bloody awful too.

Battlestar Galactica is another one. Yes, it has very hot stars, but the writing has devolved to the point of no return--and I tried to like it. I did, but after a while, I just got tired of the writers trying to pawn off retcon and zero character growth as "style."

The new Terminator series: yes, it's got Summer Glau, but it's tissue thin and annoys me. I'd love for her to be in a better series, but she's not, and I won't support a show that's awful just because an actress who appears on it is cute.

That show sucked especially compared to the original. Where was the bionic dog?

This was news 1 1/2 months ago when it first happened.

Glad to see this Bionic Woman wasn't the subject of the headline.

She's pretty hot, but the crapiness of the writing was too much.

She's hot, I'd hit with six million dollar technology.

But, the pilot was a snore fest and I never watched after that.
 
2008-03-20 04:16:01 PM
Show was too much chick drama and Michelle Ryan was too mannish.

Zombie Eater: Show was too much chick drama and Michelle Ryan was too mannish.

Yeah, notice the absence of breasts, the square jaw, the hips and waist being about the same size... yeah totally mannish.

Actually, her jaw was one of the things I thought most made her look mannish. A few good stills don't pay testament to seeing her in motion, dude.

Too bad. The girl was hot and they never got around to making the guy from "RoboCop" be the badass he was in "Point of No Return".

"He mentioned two words, 'bullet' and 'brain'."

Guys, go find a torrent for "Jekyll" ... worth it.
 
2008-03-20 04:39:27 PM
hmmm, now I know how I'll react when I find out Lindsey Wagner died.

Exactly the way I just did when I read the headline "wonder how she died. meh"
 
2008-03-20 04:40:08 PM
I liked the show, but staring at her may have distracted me from the bigger problems with it.

Oh well, off to watch New Amsterdam and drool over Zuleikha Robinson now instead.

I have a feeling that you'll see him change quite a bit in the upcoming season (if they're making one). I think the whole seeing his dad thing will cause some changes in him.

hubiestubert: So what exactly IS worth watching these days?

Katie Sackhoff is a showkiller.

SHUSH!

Michelle Ryan rocked in Jekyll. Bionic Woman was a snore-fest - didn't make it past the third episode.

She's got a rockin' body, no denying that. Maybe it's just the makeup or lighting or something but half the photos her face looks like a man and the rest she looks hot. Kind of like Brooke Hogan.

Not like I give a shiat. I'd hit both of them like there's no tomorrow.

She's so effing hot, but is so the worst choice for The Terminator TV series. Horribly unconvincing killer robot. But I'd still risk my life to have sex with that horribly unconvincing killer robot
 
2008-03-20 05:19:48 PM
So David Eick, the hack that destroyed nuBSG, is blaming everything else except the stupid writing of this show? Nice.

And Michelle Ryan.. I'd hit it so hard she'd be Bionic afterwards!

Right now, not a hell of a lot. Writer's strike and all...

I'm hopeful for a new season of Dexter, but there's not a lot out there right now--at least for me. But I'm horrible picky...

Is she wearing a bikini top under that black top... or am I *that* out of touch with the evolution of bras?

/what?
 
2008-03-20 05:34:42 PM
I loved Jekyll, thought it was great. But her character seemed pretty useless and pointless near the end. A dead end.

Also, what's with all the blasphemers of BSG in this thread?

bromidestain: I loved Jekyll, thought it was great. But her character seemed pretty useless and pointless near the end. A dead end.

Not quite arguing but the mini-series itself was WELL worth it. We thought it be 'interesting/good view' but we were glued and practically had them in a marathon.

She looks like she has Lilly Allen disease, otherwise known as fetal alcohol syndrome.

The show was awful and her acting was pretty lousy, but I couldn't take my eyes off of her. I was weird, like a high school crushiathink i was falling in love with her.
Then around the third or fourth episode they introduced a love intrest for her, some CIA clown, and I couldn't watch anymore. I stoppped watching the show out of simple Jealousy. I was jealous of a fictional character.
That's messed up.

/hoping she does some R rated movies or Maxim magazine real soon
