And meanwhile, Annalee Newitz expresses her disappointment at the remake of Bionic Woman over at AlterNet:
This time around, Jaime [Sommers, the bionic woman] isn't an independent career jock: she's a 23-year-old bartender and college dropout who has just gotten pregnant and is about to marry her surgeon boyfriend. When she asks said boyfriend why he likes her, despite her lack of professional success, he replies, "You're the one thing my father didn't plan for me."Newitz says much more, and concludes that "there's something deeply wrong about a science fiction show, allegedly about a woman of the future, whose message seems taken from a past much further back than the show's origins in the 1970s."
Darn. I loved that show.
