New NBC Shows: "The Bionic Woman"
The "re-imagined" update of the 1970s classic TV series from the creator of "Battlestar Galactica."
Struggling as a bartender and surrogate mom to her teenage sister, Jaime Sommers (Michelle Ryan, "EastEnders") didn't think life could get much harder.
But when a devastating car accident leaves her at death's door, Jaime's only hope for survival is a cutting-edge, top-secret technology that comes at a hefty price.
With a whole new existence and a debt to re-pay, Jaime must figure out how to use her extraordinary abilities for good, while weighing the personal sacrifices she will have to make.
Ultimately, it's Jaime's journey of self-discovery and inner strength that will help her embrace her new life as the Bionic Woman.
Bottom line: This show would do wonders on cable. Can it carry the night on broadcast TV, though?
