[08:35] // GINGA FLASH // · · David Eick, executive producer of SCI FI Channel's original series Battlestar Galactica, will reinvent another 1970s SF show: The Bionic Woman, which he will executive-produce with film writer LŠta Kalogridis for SCI FI's parent TV network, NBC, Variety reported. · ·
[08:35] // GINGA FLASH // · · Eick told the trade paper that the new series will be "a complete reconceptualization of the title. We're using the title as a starting point, and that's all." · ·
[08:36] // GINGA FLASH // · · Instead of focusing on terrorism and militarism, the new Bionic will explore the role of professional women in contemporary society and how they juggle their various roles. · ·
[08:37] <@SpeedRcrX> Oh great. So we get to see s[BLEEP]t like "Bionic Murphy Brown does Paperwork"
[08:38] <@SpeedRcrX> Bionic Woman> Right sir!!! *Bionic noise CH CH CH CH CH CH paperwork goes flying everywhere*
[08:38] <@SpeedRcrX> Male Co-worker> s[BLEEP]t, she's good!
[08:38] <@SpeedRcrX> Bionic Woman> HA HA! Take THAT Glass Ceiling!
[08:39] <@SpeedRcrX> Man this is such bulls[BLEEP]t
[08:39] <IrnChef_Jovian> What's wrong, Haruka-san?
[08:39] <@SpeedRcrX> You don't get it, do you, Mako
[08:39] <@SpeedRcrX> This s[BLEEP]t is a defilement of the spirit of Bionicism
[08:40] <Mizunomics01> Is that even a word?
[08:40] * Mizunomics01 looks in the dictionary. "No, I don't think so."
[08:40] <@SpeedRcrX> Man, Ami-chan you're not getting it.
[08:40] <flame_SNIPER> She doesn't get lots of things.
[08:40] <Mizunomics01> ...
[08:40] <IrnChef_Jovian> Hey don't pick on her!
[08:44] <flame_SNIPER> Mako-chan, are you ok?
[08:44] <@SpeedRcrX> You kids don't realize how badass the Bionic shows were back in the day.
[08:45] <Mizunomics01> Hmph, I never expected someone as refined as Haruka-san to be so enamored of crass entertainment designed solely for the gratification of the simple-minded.
[08:46] <@SpeedRcrX> It was like the Hercules and Xena of their time, Bionic man and Woman were
[08:46] <IrnChef_Jovian> Hercules and Xena.... wow
[08:46] * IrnChef_Jovian LOVEd them, especially Xena!
[08:46] <flame_SNIPER> Did you love Xena the show or Xena the person :P
[08:46] <IrnChef_Jovian> Huh?
[08:47] <@SpeedRcrX> LAwless was HAWT.... :r Lucy Lawless
[08:47] <Mizunomics01> Are you drooling?
[08:47] <Mizunomics01> She's DROOLING over a TV character?
[08:47] * Mizunomics01 is having a hard time with this
[08:47] * IrnChef_Jovian can see why
[08:48] <flame_SNIPER> Was that to Haruka-san or Ami-chan?
[08:48] <IrnChef_Jovian> Huh?
[08:48] <@SpeedRcrX> But anyway, yeah, WTF Eick, bionic powers do not a sitcom or Ally McBeal make
[08:48] <@SpeedRcrX> they make soldiers and spies fighting EVIL in the dark corners of the world
[08:49] <@SpeedRcrX> and taking out the occassional sasquatch
[08:49] <Mizunomics01> There is no scientific evidence to support the existence of so-called sasquatches.
[08:49] <@SpeedRcrX> It was an alien
[08:49] <Mizunomics01> Oh.
[08:50] <Mizunomics01> That's different then
[08:50] <@SpeedRcrX> Man those shows rocked, I'm gonna slam some Yebisu and crawl up in a ball in a corner somewhere in the fetal position and shiver hoping someone smacks Eick with a cluestick
[08:50] * @SpeedRcrX is away: :<
[08:51] <Mizunomics01> Really, such passion for a work of fiction
[08:51] <Mizunomics01> My opinion of Haruka-san is changing.
[08:51] <IrnChef_Jovian> I know...
[08:51] <flame_SNIPER> Hah, have you ever seen her ROOM?
[08:52] <IrnChef_Jovian> God... it must be so elegant, filled with gleaming memorabilia from a life spent on the track, on the racecourses.... in concerts... so lush, so elegant...
[08:52] <flame_SNIPER> It's a Toxic WASTE dump
[08:52] <IrnChef_Jovian> ...EH!?
[08:52] * flame_SNIPER is away: heheheh you guys have a LOT to learn it seems
[08:53] <Mizunomics01> Apparently so.
[08:53] * Mizunomics01 is away: While the premise may be patently absurd, the idea of bionic modifications is not.... hmmm.
[08:53] * IrnChef_Jovian is away: Ami-chan, wait for me!

Yeah, like this is going to work. Might as well call it "Bionic Soccer Mom" or something like that.

" Instead of focusing on terrorism and militarism, the new Bionic will explore the role of professional women in contemporary society and how they juggle their various roles."

OMFG. If they actually try to run with that idea it'll run the entire premise into the ground. Some things just *shouldn't* be changed.

Before you get too upset, I suspect a great deal of fighting evil will be part of the show. I just see an additional element of "the pretty girl must be incompetent", "she's unsuitable for running this operation", and "how do I find a SO while being on the job 24/7" being added to the mix. I believe Haruka is worrying overmuch on a lack of information.
