  • The single ignoble instance of a BAD Bionic Woman episode

    When yet another Middle Eastern petty potentate needs guarding in the US, Jamie is sent in as his "social secretary", and disarms legions of bandits bent on killing him. She also half falls for a womanizing slug whose inability to pay his gambling debts has put him dead center in the thick of the plot. To their credit, the writers do all they can to preserve the essential BW element of not hurting the bad guys any more than necessary. Still, that's more than usual given they're all military, and (once again!) on the king's payroll to boot. Lindsay is still ravishing, and still projects kindness and empowerment. But this episode is definitely the lowpoint of the series.
