I wonder if Bionic Woman will actually stick to the formula it's used for the last three episodes. Certainly, the show has managed to maintain, finally, a relatively consistent tone in its recent episodes, but the ratings aren't very good and I don't think the formulaic approach the producers are currently using will lead to better numbers.
For three weeks now we've had geek boy, Nathan, feed info to Jaime and company, be funny, and disappear. Tom, Jaime's CIA boyfriend, appears and then alternately helps her, keeps information from her, and bats his eyelashes at her. Jonas acts all high and mighty, he is impressed with Jaime's results but not necessarily the way she goes about her job. The show has also thrown in more nods to the old series, especially in terms of the depiction of bionic abilities. When Jaime starts running bionic-style, the show briefly flips to slow motion, like its namesake did, before going hyper-fast.
This new-found consistency has virtually eliminated the original plot of the show. Gone is Sarah Corvus, gone is Anthony Anthros, gone are some of the best moments, plots, and ideas of the series. While that could be a problem, the weakest moments of the show have also disappeared. It's as though the show has gone from wildly vacillating between "A" and "F" material to deciding to stick with solid "C+" material. I don't know which I prefer.
Of course, I must say that I was quite pleased that the show gave a nod to James Bond last night. When Antonio suggested that dating was not compatible with her job, Jaime asked if that was the reason Bond never had the same girlfriend. Bond did in fact get married in one of the movies, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, but his wife was promptly murdered. Jaime and Antonio's analysis is a good interpretation of Bond's actions (but, it should be noted, not new).
