The New Bionic Woman: A Quick Review

The Bionic Women debuted on NBC last night. Here's a three-letter review: zzz.

With bad dialogue and none of the campy fun of the original, I wouldn't expect this dog to last a season. Unless changes are made.

Where is tennis pro Jamie Sommers when you need her?

I think it's time to hire some writers with bionic-like abilities to write dialogue that doesn't sound completely phoney.

I Miss Having Ratherisms

I hope Dan Rather gets every single penny of his $70 million lawsuit against CBS. And I'm still waiting for someone to provide firm evidence that what CBS reported about George Bush during the 2004 election wasn't true.

Besides, I miss Ratherisms.

This lawsuit is hotter than a Times Square Rolex.

The Bourne Ultimatum: Everything But A Chicken Fight

... went to see The Bourne Ultimatum last week. Good movie, but one of the action-packed scenes made me laugh (unintentionally) because it reminded me of this:
