SANDRA BULLOCK ... BIONIC GIRL?
Posted: Tue, Apr 29 2008 - 09:20 AM
I mentioned in a previous post, Bionic Blunder, that ABC's two classic series from the seventies, The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman were NOT available on DVD. Since I explained why in that post, I won't repeat myself here. I also mentioned that, of the three Bionic Reunion movies produced in the late 80s/early 90s, 1989's Bionic Showdown featured a young Sandra Bullock as Kate Mason, the new bionic girl.
As big of a fan as I was of the original shows, these reunion films were all pretty bad. Er ... make that REALLY BAD. Rather than focusing on Steve and Jamie, new and younger costars were featured in an ill-fated effort to find a new spinoff series.
I only bring this up because ... I recently found a clip of young Sandy B. as the bionic girl and thought I'd share it. The dialogue is horrible, the acting is horrendous, and someone's idea of improved bionic effects was adding a little blur to the slow motion. One could throw some Cheetos, Cheez-its, and Cheez-Whiz into a blender and not come up with something this cheesetastic. And yet, our affection for Ms. Bullock makes this oddly watchable.
Here you go ... don't say I didn't warn you.
