'Bionic Woman'

Did anyone watch the premiere of the new "Bionic Woman" show? We saw it last night and thought it was OK -- maybe a little hokey in parts. It at least was nice to see some of the cast members of "Battlestar Galactica" show up.

But, what the hey: It's supposed to be set in San Francisco. This has to be the most half-assed job of trying to portray San Francisco I've ever seen. Usually shows at least shoot a few exteriors before heading up to Canada for the rest. With "Bionic Woman," nothing looked like any San Francisco I know: the trees, the buildings, the buses (definitely not Muni's!).

Hopefully the other new San Francisco-based sci-fi show: "Journeyman" will do a better job.
