Comeback vehicle: NBCs Bionic Woman, starring Michelle Ryan
When we saw her last: Lindsay Wagner played the role in the 70s, and we enjoyed the slo-mo hair-flipping stunts and cool lo-fi sound effects.
Are we glad shes back: No. In a world overflowing with Spider-Man and Batman sequels, it was good to hear that a woman with special powers might get some mass media attention again. But watching NBCs remake was a letdown -- not just to us, but to the multitude of other viewers who had high hopes. After only a handful of episodes, many lost interest in the story line and ratings have continued to slide. Perhaps Wagner was the only Bionic Woman we needed.
Comeback rating: 4
