The next in the line of a continuing succession of cracking US tv shows has started on ITV 2 with The Bionic Woman. Admittedly, as you might expect the first episode is packed with backstory and setup but the writing is taught, the acting good (with the odd exception – Miguel Ferrer step forward and get out of auto pilot), packed with action and the lead actors fully committed.

BTW – Katee Sackhoff is quite clearly loving her badass role!

So, my Virgin + box has yet another series to record and I hope the show develops along the same route it has set out on. It’s looking good.

Now, just waiting for Battlestar series 4 …
