I'm just hoping that the storyline with the sister doesn't become more annoying than what it is already.

I'm really enjoying the Sarah Corvis storyline. I'm not sure where I want it to go though, whether they'll be part time allies or constant enemies.

This is not what I am looking forward to. Every few weeks we are going to get a big action scene between the two of them. Ooooh. Ahhhh.

Some of the dialogue is hilariously over-the-top, even if it's delivered in low-key or hushed tones.

I still like how Jaime's not afraid to speak her mind on issues, even though she's still pretty naive and green, she's not going to just be a doormat.

The episode moved pretty quick, as I was surprised when "To be continued" flashed up on the screen at the end of the episode.

I love Ruth, she's sardonically funny (like when she agreed about Jaime's privacy issues, while undercutting Jonas' position). The little moments entertain me.

The babysitting gig was a bit clumsily executed, plus the pedicure shop melee was directed pretty badly. It's like they can't decide how strong Jaime really is, though I give Sarah some slack since her bionics are dying on her.

Did enjoy Antonio get a beat-down by Jaime.

So how was it tonight? I decided to dust while watching it and figured I look up if anything sounded interesting. I think I only looked up when someone said something about why dont go find something to do like hang yourself, lol.

Ruth's reaction to that question is why I love Ruth, very funny little moments.

Yeah, I agree that there were some problems with the execution. The characters can be a bit dry sometimes. IMO, the show still has a ton of potential, they just need to polish it a bit but I'm not sure where to start.

I liked last week's episode better than this, but not bad, will definitely keep on watching.

Exactly. In one scene Jamie can shove a large man across a room with little effort, and in the next it seems her punch wouldn't break paper.

And Vince Van Patton played the bionic boy, and there was an upgraded bionic man, Steve Austin's son who could run 200mph and had a laser in his right eye.

I'm waiting for this show to take itself seriously... or at least as seriously as Miguel Ferrer's character is taking it.



I'll keep watching.

I actually liked this episode MUCH better than last week's. In fact, I thought it was easily the best and most compelling episode so far. But I agree that there's still some execution and cheesy dialog issues. Like you said, the potential is there, it just needs polish. I just hope it lasts long enough for it to (hopefully) improve.

i'm going to stick with it for a few more episodes but i'm not feeling it. I'd have preferred to see the Jamie Somers character be the Sarah Corvis character. Her story seems infinitely more interesting.

Best episode so far IMHO, though it wasn't perfect. I wish Jamie would express some gratitude every once in awhile for having her life saved. She's always pissed about the intrusion into her life by this group and invasion of privacy. I know she didn't ask for the bionics or a new job, but HELLO! You should be dead, Jamie!

The Sarah Corvus story is the only interesting story this show's got, so I hope it doesn't wrap up any time soon.
