I fast forward thru the love scenes most of the time in all shows. Women making love in bed with their bras on is just a little too much for me believe.

If it's so easy to see Lucy Liu in that role for us, why did we get stuck with who ever she is? They must cast these shows with some plan in mind, no? That would be an immensely popular show with Lucy Liu in it. Shame...

Demographics. Lucy Liu is just a tad bit older than the current actess playing Jaime Somers ... and I'm sure NBC wanted to go "young" to get a younger audience to watch.

The original Bionic Woman is a show that I don't want to be reminded of. I was not happy to find out this one's name was the same.

Lucy Liu, too old? C'mon.

Hey now! I didn't say she was "too old" ... just that she's older than the current actress in the show! :lol:

And soooo much better looking. If we are going to have, to quote Stuart Sweet, "eye candy", let's have some real "eye candy".

That said, I did understand your post. Just wanted another chance to mention Lucy Liu.

Cheers, Drew,

Gave up on Cavemen after the first episode. Still watching Journeyman, Cane
and Private Practice. Journeyman is the best new show.

I read today that NBC has pulled the plug on Journeyman.

FAITH: I find the lack of it disturbing.

Opinions are my own but should be those of all Americans, who would be much better off intellectually, psychologically, and emotionally if that were the case.

You missed a great series, I didn't care much for the first episode either, but it got really good and unfortunately canceled.

Haven't seen most of those already commented on since the previews were enough to make me give up on them before they showed.
I have recently deleted from my To Do List:
CSI: Miami -- Just can't watch David Caruso any longer. I still watch CSI and CSI: New York.
Cane -- It has become just one huge soap opera. Too many interlaced stories that just never end.
