How bionic are you?

This is quite possibly the coolest marketing tool I’ve ever seen to promote a new show. The folks at NBC have created an online game where you can step into the bionic legs of Bionic Woman Jaime Sommers and test how well your systems are working.

I took the bionic test, and surprisingly, I scored a whopping 32 percent. I did poorly on the math section and my bionic eye doesn’t work at all when it comes to eye-hand coordination. But, it doesn’t matter. For a brief moment, I got to be Jaime Sommers.

I’m not ashamed to admit that I spent many childhood days pretending to be the Bionic Woman. I used to make that “nuh-nuh-nuh” sound when I ran and jumped. Unfortunately, my landings weren’t as smooth as her landings. (And my hair didn’t flow in the wind like her hair either, but that’s another story.)

Those of you who grew up watching the Bionic Woman, you’ll have some fun with this game. Those of you who are entirely new to the Bionic Woman series, you are in for a real treat, too. So, go test your bionic skills.

Bionic Woman premieres on NBC Sept. 26 at 9 p.m. ET.

This is cool. I can't wait for this show. Tube Talk Girl have you seen it? What's your take? I count on you to steer me in the right direction. We usually have similar taste in shows. (Lost, Felicity, Freaks and Geeks, Veronica Mars, etc.)

OMG, that taste is ridiculous hard! I scored a zero on the typing keyboard part. LOL. That was crazy hard.

Jen, I used to play Oscar. What teenage boy wouldn't want to "tune up" Jaime Sommers? :)

Steven said...

She looks mean. And she's brunette. This is a whole different take on Bionic Woman. I can't to see it. Thanks for the link to the NBC page. It looks cool.

oh yeah, 63%...not quite bionic, but good enough to be a Volunteer Sheriff's Deputy

if only I had bionic motivation, then maybe I'd actually update my stupid blog...lol

Tim, 63 percent? Wow. I always knew there was something not quite human about you. :)
