Bionic Woman Season One

Bionic Woman is the 2007 remake of the original 1970's television series based on the spin-off series from the Six Million Man entitled "The Bionic Woman" which lasted two seasons and featured Lindsay Wagner as the super powered heroine.

David Eick is the current mastermind behind the 21st century remake which features Jaime Sommers (Michelle Ryan) as a woman trying to make ends meat as she raises her baby sister.

Unbeknown to Jaime, her boyfriend Will Anthros (Chris Bowers) is a scientist for a  secret government agency known as the Berkut Group which specializes in military technological advancements.

As Jaime leaves her bar job, she is involved in a life threatening accident with a truck and Will makes the executive decision to rebuild his girlfriend. Plagued by visions of surgery and increased speed and strength, Jaime confronts Will, only to discover that in order to save her life, he has infused her body with a plethora of technological advances, over fifty millions dollars worth and she is eventually drawn into the Berkut group to complete a variety of covert tasks.

As with every hero, they also have a villain who is played by the delightful Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) who stars as Sarah Corvus, one of the Berkut groups failed experiments and plays mind games with their current golden girl.

The series features a plethora of references to 21st century life from terrorism to raising children which may be a little loose on plot, however when it comes to action is filled with one roller coast ride of girl power. As the series progresses, so do the characters and relationships that may be clichéd at times, is definitely one for the science fiction buff that is entertaining from start to finish.
