    (RIGHT CLICK THE IMAGE TO SAVE THIS EPISODE TO YOUR COMPUTER) John and Paul have been given a new Critical Assignment.  With the success of The Six Million Dollar Man Season 6 by Dynamite Comics, it stood to reason that a The Bionic Woman Season 4 comic would follow.  But as most bionic fans know, The Bionic Woman does not usually feature the same kind of story telling as her male counterpart.  Dynamite's previous attempt at a Bionic Woman comic was less than stellar.  Is it possible they can get it right by using the original source material?  Writer Brandon Jerwa has been tapped for the assignment and he sits down with John and Paul to discuss what he feels it will take to make The Bionic Woman a successful comic for both the fans of the series and the general comic book reader.   00:00 - Show introduction 03:00 - Bionic Renaissance 04:10 - Brandon Introduction 08:00 - "Where you a fan of Six Million Dollar Man & Bionic Woman?" 12:45 - Viewing the Differences Between the Two Bionic Shows and Characters
