Last weeks Bionic Woman Pilot was a great episode – this weeks episode – Paradise Lost – not so much.

The show was weak, trite and contrived and for whatever reason had more commercials than actually air time.

There was little action here that was dramatic and the show just plodded along with little fealing and no real plot that wasn’t totally obvious.

The only interesting side note on this show was when Jamie (Michelle Ryan) goes into the house in Paradise where she here’s something and there on the TV is Battlestar Galactica.

I hope the producers kick this show up a notch with real plot and better acting soon..otherwise this show will have a very short life.

Not bad..

Not bad at all.

The series premiere of the new Bionic Woman was a solid show. Katee Sackhoff is an awesome fembot, fearsome and maniacal and in my view – stole the show.

My favorite parts of the show both involved Sackhoff..showing her true cylon …er fembot colors.. The first was when Sackhoff shot Jamie Sommers boyfriend – the special effects of sommers bionic eye tracking the bullet and seeing the fembot…WOW awesome.

The second highlight was when Sommers met Sackhoff for a bionic woman battle – and just before they get started – Sackhoff calls for a – TIME OUT!! ha! brilliant.

Well i say TIME IN for Bionic Woman. Michelle Ryan(the former east-ender) was also solid and believable – though hey she’s no Lindsay Wagner.

Babylon 5 The Lost Tales : Voices In The Dark – A New Beginning? or a Pathetic comeback? August 15, 2007

Alrighty I’ve held my tongue long enough on what I actually think about Babylon 5 The Lost Tales : Voices In The Dark.

Babylon 5 is a place of beginnings and endings, Sheridan says in the final five minutes. Whether this will be a new beginning or an ending we don’t know.

First of all these two episodes are hardly the best that Babylon 5 has to offer. In fact they’re down near the bottom.

We had all expected so much from this – the teaser trailer was awesome after all. But from the beginning intro of the actual DVD – no awesome intro music and voice over as we had in the series – (Babylon was our Last Best Hope for Peace…it failed… ) – till the final frame this experience was lacking.

In Something Here – the tale with Lochley and the Devil there are two few characters, too little of the station. Sure the story is good. The deep story on how religion will fare in space and the true meaning of heaven and hell is the type of story that only a master Sci Fi story teller like JMS would ever attempt.

But then again. Babylon 5 has tackled religion in the past. Remember the episode with the Rabbi after Ivana loses a relative?

So..sure dialogue is great and so is the story..but the pace is SLOW. As a regular Babylon 5 episode it would work, but as the first thing we the FANS see after nearly a decade..i dunno i was less than enthusiastic.

OK so ON to the second part.

Sheridan is back

Galen the Technomage is back.

But again..a well thought out well scripted episode in terms of dialogue..but SLOW

NO ACTION.

and oh so slow.

I tried watching this episode with someone that had never watched Babylon 5 before…needless to say this person didn’t last through the whole thing.

And therein lies the problem with Lost Tales. It is too slow and not engaging enough. The stories are long drawn out. The action is only dialogue in slooow sequences. The special effects looked flimsy, the station didn’t look right, the hyperspace gate didn’t look right, the landing bay didn’t look right at all!

Babylon 5 is the greatest Sci Fi series of all time. The original run had the best script, the best characters and the best story arcs.

Lost Tales : Voices In The Dark is a ‘shadow’ of the glory that was Babylon 5. I hope JMS makes another DVD and I hope the next one has more characters, more ships, more aliens and FRAK IT more story, more action and MORE OF THE BABYLON 5 WE ALL MISS SO VERY MUCH.

Babylon 5 Fans!! Be afraid. If my recent attempts at trying to see who is selling the new direct to DVD movie – Babylon 5 The Lost Tales is any indication , we’ve got trouble.

The DVD has been out for over a week and in that time i’ve tried to locate it at stores in Toronto, Buffalo and San Francisco with little luck (yes i travel alot).

Best Buy stores in Toronto did not have any kind of special display and didn’t even have it on their new releases shelf. In fact i went to three different Best Buys and all of them said they never even got the movie.

Target in Buffalo didn’t have Lost Tales either.

In San Francisco, I went to the Virgin Megastore off 4th and could not find the DVD. After going to the counter to ask, they said they had 50 copies. None of which were on the shelf. Again the DVD was not on the new releases shelf and was not being promoted.

If Babylon 5 The Lost Tales is not adequately promoted at retail how does Warner Bros or JMS expect for it to be successful?

Is Amazon enough?

Currently Amazon.com has Lost Tales listed as #12 on its Top DVD listing. Personally i think that Amazon is a great outlet but its not enough. And if JMS is wondering why Lost Tales isn’t selling more all he needs to do is walk into his local DVD retailer to try and find the movie.

More Bionic Woman teaser have emerged from NBC this weekend. The last ones we saw clearly showed us Battlestar Galactica’s Starbuck (Katee Sackhoff) as a cylon ..err i mean fembot.

In this new teaser put out by the network we see just how evil the Starbuck fembot may be….Former East-Ender Michelle Ryan is the good Bionic Woman but Sackhoff is sure gonna give her a good scare.

Check out the new teaser below…neat huh? Now i wonder who will play Steve Austin (The Bionic Man that was played by Lee Majors in the 70’s show…)

Gotta hand it to NBC they sure know how to cast for a SciFi show. They’ve just released some initial footage from the new Bionic Woman show..one of the clips has Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica’s Starbuck) fighting The Bionic Woman Jamie Sommers. Katee Sackhoff is set to guest star in a re-imagining of the 1970s show.

Guess Starbuck (Sackhoff) really is a fembot! (aka Cylon!!)

I guess Lindsay Wagner is too old…

Former Eastenders actress Michelle Ryan is set to become the Bionic Woman (Jamie Sommers) in the upcoming series.

This is the same Bionic Woman show in which

Battlestar Galactica actress Katee Sackhoff (Starbuck) will play Sarah, an evil bionic woman and nemesis to Sommers (The Bionic Woman).

Still no word yet on if the Bionic Man – The 6 Million Dollar Man (Steve Austin) will also be remade.

Katee Sackhoff to star in the Bionic Woman (kinda/sorta cylon’ish..) March 20, 2007

Katee Sackhoff is set to guest star in a re-imagining of the 1970s show.

Sadly Lindsay Wagner who played the original bionic woman isn’t in the show and Lee Majors the bionic man isn’t likely to appear either.

This time around as in the 70’s the show centers on Jamie Sommers now played by Michelle Ryan, a woman who is turned into a walking technological miracle after a car crash. Sackhoff will play Sarah, an evil bionic woman and nemesis to Sommers.

Why doesn’t she does play an evil robot hell bent on the destruction of humanity? oh wait i forgot she already does that on Battlestar Galactica .

So i guess that makes Sackhoff a fembot??
