drewogatory: Shadowknight: drewogatory: The girl from the new Bionic Woman was face meltingly hot, so I never understood all the vitriol directed at that show.

It was the writing. She was constantly whining about having super powers. If I woke up and sadly found myself betrayed by my fiance, yeah, it would suck. Same with finding out that my body, by large chunks, were no longer my own. But in about five minutes I would realize that I look no different, that my body can still touch and feel the same as it always had before, and now I can see for miles and crush cement blocks in my fist.

I would find it hard pressed to stay depressed once I figured out that my life was not going to change much, except now I can lift cars and see through walls. But the way they wrote the chick, she just wouldn't quit biatching about what she was now and what she is able to do. Just got annoying.

Did it even make it ten episodes? Even Buffy whined for 10 freaking episodes. And Buffy in no way looked like that. Or ran in slow motion.

And all that isn't even considering that it was a reboot of a spin-off. Again: A Reboot Of A Spin-Off. They could have at least had a $6 Gazillion Man as a re-imagined prototype in a recurring role.

V wasn't bad.
Because in one shot, you had Laura Vandervroot, Elizabeth Mitchell and Morena Baccarin sitting at the same table.
In heels and dresses.
I spent many a time in my bunk.

You know what never gets mentioned in lists like this (even though "reboot" isn't correct) is the second Fantasy Island with Malcolm McDowell. It lasted only a season I think and was actually fun to watch. It had a creep quality the first one didn't and didn't rely on the thrill of seeing Donny Most in something besides Happy Days.

Hmm...the article is "new" but it seems strangely familiar...as if it was itself rebooted 
/ someone should write a book

I'm pretty sure this is a slideshow I've seen before, it also just re-opened the wound that was my complete disappointment in the new Knight Rider. I watched that and kept hoping it would somehow, finally turn around. It never did.

So, I didn't hallucinate the Love Boat: The Next Wave.

Saw ten minutes of one episode, and I wanted to kill myself.
