TV Series I'm Looking Forward To

NBC has just confirmed they will be picking up the remake of Bionic Woman. UK actress Michelle Ryan will be playing the role of Jamie Sommers. The grandest thing is that Katee Sackhoff (who plays Captain Kara "Starbuck" Thrace on the new Battlestar Galactica) will be a "recurring guest star" on Bionic Woman. Her character is supposed to be the first Bionic Woman, who is seen fighting with Michelle Ryan's character in this Youtube preview.

David Eick, executive producer of Battlestar Galactica, is also responsible for the new Bionic Woman. If the kickass remake of Battlestar Galactica is anything to go by, this Bionic Woman remake shows promise.

Meanwhile, lap up this picture of Katee Sackhoff looking BAAAAD...

Can't wait.

Another high point of TV coming next in 2008, the Sarah Connor Chronicles is coming to FOX. It stars Lena Headey (last seen regal and splendid in the movie version of Frank Miller's 300) as the mother of the Saviour of Humanity, John Connor. The story is supposed to take place between Terminator 2 and Terminator 3. Okay, whatever. Can I just have more shots of Lena Headey, please?

Here's a picture of the main cast. And for Firefly fans, Summer Glau is part of the supporting cast for The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

It will be so weird to see Summer Glau not being River.

Yes, know what you mean, Carl. Although I'll be expecting her to suddenly go psycho-assassin on people River Tam-style. She was magnificent in the Serenity movie when they finally let her loose on the Reavers.
