    I'm looking for a show (I think that it was either Tv movie or pilot.) from the 80's or 90's that involved a woman who lost all but her left arm, head, and left chest with everything else replaced by bionics. I thing that it was either called 'Raising Helena' or 'Building Helena'. Can any help?

    There was a movie in the early '90's called Boxing Helena staring Julian Sands and Sherilyn Fenn. It didn't have anything to do with bionics. Sands played a surgeon in love with a woman he can't have so he removes her limbs to keep her captive in his house. That's all I can come up with. Hope it helps.

    I had heard of 'Boxing Helena' and had thought that this show's title was in poor taste. Maybe that is why it wasn't picked up?

    Boxing Helena was a movie, so it wouldn't get picked up. I can't find or remember anything about this show, sorry.

    Her boyfriend was the doctor experimenting with bionics when she came into the hospital after an accident. One scene after she has discovered what had been done to her shows her running out into the rain dress only in her hospital gown and her exposed bionic limbs sparking in the rain.


    Another is much later on when she is with her boyfriend and she wants to show him how she figured out how to have sex since the mass majority of her body is now artificial, by vibrating.
