[Michelle] Ryan's star-making performance makes all of this intrigue worthwhile. She brings high-voltage intensity to the role, summoning a new and furious resolve after initially wishing herself dead.
Created by David Eick of "Battlestar Galactica," it's a solid piece of mainstream science fiction that has both tight action sequences and ripe villains, led by Katee Sackhoff's kickin' bionic she-devil.
"Bionic Woman" comes pre-sold to a certain segment of the audience, which will probably buy the show a little time to find its footing. That, along with the presence of Ryan and Sackhoff, will probably be enough to carry it for a while.
[S]ometimes Bionic Woman was cool. There were some fun action sequences and some clever and witty exchanges. But as a whole this was a very murky, unfocused series that never could find a consistent tone or theme.
Much like Nikita and Alias' Syndey Bristow, Jamie's simultaneously a babe in peril and a woman in charge, and Michelle Ryan catches the role's film-noir shades and comic-book angles with all due verve.
