Last night faintheart and I watched the premiere episode of the re-made Bionic Woman. I can't say as I'm totally hooked, but it was reasonably well done, and I enjoyed watching it. Part of the fun might have been playing "spot the Battlestar Galactica alum" - David Eick is one of the executive producers, so it isn't that strange, just amusing. Katee Sackhoff and Aaron Douglas have early roles, and Mark Sheppard is a major character. It was nice to see Miguel Ferrer involved as well.

I used to watch the original series of the Bionic Woman and the Six Million Dollar Man both when I was a kid, and I recall playing/pretending to be bionic pretty regularly. So it's nice to see the remake turn out at least decently. And as vital as it was to our game-playing as kids, I'm just as glad to hear they've abandoned the cheesy 'bionic powers activating' sound effect. So I can forgive them naming their hand-wavy ultra-miniaturized body-altering machines after a type of coal. Ok, ok - it's really just a homophone: anthrocytes is the spelling given on the website, and while that does translate as "human cell(s)" it's just too bad I heard anthracites every single time. I guess 'nanites' had already been snapped up by the Jake 2.0 folks.

We also caught up on the third episode of Torchwood, which was excellent as always.

I didn't like it. I tried really hard to get into it, but just couldn't. About the only reason I'd want to watch it is that the main character is hot. Not enough for me.

I like the show after it a lot though: Life.

Did you catch Chuck? It's nice to see Adam Baldwin keep progressing as a heavy: thug (Firefly), cop/detective (Daybreak), NSA Agent (Chuck). I suppose the next role he'll get is something like crime lord.

No, neither Chuck nor Life. I did like the opening credits for Life or the smidgeon I saw.
