TV to See: Can They Rebuild Her? The Remake of “Bionic Woman”

Desperate for that next big hit, TV studios have been mining the past for ideas. Fall 2007 saw the premiere of the remake of “Bionic Woman.”

American enthusiasm for the remake quickly waned, and the writers’ strike put the show on hiatus. Initial reactions in the U.K. have been warm, possibly because British actress Ryan used to appear on long-running soap, “EastEnders,” and also starred in the well-received 2007 miniseries “Jekyll.”
Meanwhile, back across the pond, the networks continue the unearthing of old material. Knight Rider, anyone?
