Lindsay, please come back !

Above Lindsay Wagner, the original bionic action woman, who was always a lady.
Below the new toilet bonking version.

I used to enjoy watching the original Bionic Woman. Jamie Sommer, played by Lindsay Wagner was a smart, confident lady who could take out villains but still remained feminine. So I was looking forward to the new version played by Michelle Ryan. After all theres been 30 years of progress, both technological and social. So can someone please explain to me why a TV show made 30 years ago can have a leading female character with more independence, control and assurance then the 21st Century version?
The new Bionic Woman has Jamie Somers as the eternal victim. She is lied to by her boy friend, controlled by sinister men, a victim of some male conspiracy. The original Jamie Somers was a professional athlete who played extreme sports and after her reconstruction punched out bad guys.

I’ll watch a few more episodes hoping it will improve but I’m not holding my breath.
