Hotter than Fembots*

They took a staple of the Gen-X childhood - an sf classic - and rebooted it with punched up blacks in the photography, shaky-cam verité, a dark storyline and called it Battlestar Galactica.

Now add The Matrix and do the same thing for The Bionic Woman. It even features Katee Sackhoff in the pilot. Seriously, this is freaking awesome.

* You heard me.

You talking the The Matrix trilogy, or just the good stuff?

Also, The Animatrix.

I am thinking of Trinity being hot and kicking ass rather than anything more "profound".

Yes was wondering about the use of "good" in connection with the Matrix movies. Animatrix was quite good. Then there is always Ghost in the Shell

Is that a promo shot for the show? And, she's smoking? A cigarette, I mean. How 'bout that.

An excellent point; and this is my favourite scene in the pilot...
