Shows I Have Dumped

The more they try to twist and revive this show the more it is not captivating. It also appears that the longer a reality show runs the harder to watch contestants are. I'm trying to choose my words carefully when talking about the individuals to not be unkind, but contestant screening needs some work. It is like they are just looking for the ones who are most likely to shed the most clothing or make drama. Unfortunately the drama you get is soap opera quality drama. I think if they had engaging people the entertainment would happen on its own instead of mixing this and that and trying o make it pop.

My wife made the point that some people she knows and even herself started watching again because it was going to be in China. They thought it would be interesting to see some of the culture, the landscape, the history, but not much there. I actually gave up on this a couple of weeks ago.

Bionic Woman (2007)
Maybe I am biased by my expectations from the 70's TV series. Maybe I don't get this show since I am no longer a twenty something. I don't if it is the edginess of the lead or her lack of morals or the show's darkness or what. Whatever it is this show is pretty bad. Did anyone screen the pilot or prior to that the script? Did they think that changing the little sister was going to fix everything?
