Bionic Woman better, but trouble behind the scenes may doom it

Wednesday's Bionic Woman was the best of the first three episodes. Not saying much, considering the show still seems to be chaotic. But them episode was a bit more humorous, especially Kate Sackhoff, who shows me again and again why I believe she should be the star of the show.

As a matter of fact, I'm almost to the point of saying that NBC should replace everyone on the show with the exception of Sackhoff, and try again.

With the reported behind-the-scene problems they've been having, it's a wonder they are producing shows. According to Ain't it Cool News, writer's Glen Morgan, Laeta Kalogridis and Jason Smilovic are no longer involved with the show. Kalogridis, who wrote the pilot, left before production began on the series, while Morgan left in early September. Smilovic was to remain through the first half of the season, but jumped when Jason Katmins was brought on board as a "consulting producer." Katims, who created and ran Roswell, and who is currently the showrunner on Friday Noght Lights, is now reportably running Bionic Woman, though NBC has yet to make that official.

If the behind-the-scenes stuff does not get fixed, the series will never make it to January.

And maybe, that's not a bad thing.
