New Bionic Woman

NBC is bringing back the classic 70’s TV show, The Bionic Woman. For those of you too young to remember, the Bionic Woman was a spinoff of the AWESOME Six Million Dollar Man starring Lee Majors (one time husband of the AWESOME Farrah Fawcett) as Steve Austin. The Bionic Woman was a creepy, dark, angst driven 70’s series, more about the independent feminist Jamie Somers (played by Lindsay Wagner) than it was about the cool gadgets she had. My memories of that series consist of inside shots of Jamie in her Ojai, California home, the super scary Fembots and the ultra cool Oscar Goldman.

Anyway, the new series looks to be much more fun, except for the annoying deaf sister angle. Here is a trailer, but a spoiler warning, this appears to comprise most of the pilot episode.
