"Hi, Jamie, boy you look great! How's Becca?": Bionic Woman: The recap

photo by

Katee Sackoff is making this show worth watching. The plots and the main actress, Michelle Ryan, however, is not.

After last week's spectacular episode this one fell flatter than the landscape in Kansas. Long dull stretches, a plot no one cared about, lame acting all filled the hour.

With the exception of Katee who chewed the scenery everytime she showed up. It would be a much more interesting show if she was a series regular. The big reveal is that Jamie can be beaten and hurt. And that she only has five years before her bionic parts fail. (Trust me, we wont' EVER get to that point with this show).

Isiah Washington is horribly bored and it shows by his acting. And it seems that the show is wandering around aimlessly.

Now the question remains: Stay or go? I'm hoping that the show gets a spark to keep me interested but I'm beginning to think that "Gossip Girl" might be on my Must See TV list and this is on my catch it if nothing else is on list.

Episode grade: D.

I'm just not seeing gargoyle here: "America's Next Top Model": The recap

Is that a bad photo? Apparently for the judges in "America's Next Top Model" is is.

This is the first week I actually felt that I knew who these girls were. There's a LOT of hatred on this cycle and it appears that my girl Bianca is always as the center of it.

The highlight of the episode for me was the Model formerly known as Danielle showed up and she was amazing! I guess speech therapy DOES work!

Lisa is doing an amazing job but that doesn't sit too well with Bianca and some of the rest of the girls.

I was worried that Ambreal would be taken out because this is NOT her best photo. She was scared of heights ( I feel ya girl) and it showed by her freakout at the photo shoot.

In the end she and Janet were in the bottom two and poor Janet was sent home.

A few random questions: Is it just me or is Tyra seem waay too removed from these girls? Usually she would have dropped by for a chat or something now.

What's going on with Miss Jay's hair?
