If you aren't watching Bionic Woman, start.
Right goddamn now.
Is it the best new show of the season? Maybe. There are other shows I need to see before I can make that judgement. It is, however, easily within the top five.
It is a dark, sexy re-imagining of the 1970s property, just as 2003's Battlestar Galactica miniseries breathed new life and vision into what was previously a corny sci-fi show.
I'm particularly impressed with their exploration of cyberpsychosis -- a affliction common in cyberpunk fiction wherein the removal of body parts and their subsequent replacement with prosthetics results in a perceived loss of humanity, with concomitant paranoia, loss of impulse control, and increasing aggression and violent tendencies.
Yes, there are about a million ways this show can go wrong and auger into the ground, but until and unless that happens, I will keep watching it.
