Bionic Woman Pilot Reviewed (SPOILERS)

Just a couple of days after the trades reported that the new Bionic Woman has gotten the order to "staff up," indicating it will go to series, aint-it-cool-news has a review of the pilot.

Highlights: Katee Sackhoff (aka Starbuck on Battlestar) plays BW's nemesis, an insane protege model. Apparently, she is responsible for the accident that results in Jamie Summers going bionic in the first place.

As in the original, Jamie loses her arm, her ear and both legs. In this version, she also loses her eye. All are replaced with experimental biotech parts.

Summers, formerly a bartender, is then pressed into working for the agency responsible for saving her life.

There's a recurring character described as "Lecter-like." As with the Katee Sackhoff part, this role also apparently recurs.

Since this is a Glen Morgan show now, any bets on how long before his wife (Kristen Cloke) turns up?
