Michelle Ryan and Isaiah Washington in Bionic Woman by Carol Segal/NBC Photo
Jeers to Isaiah Washington for his tragically lethargic performance on
. The former
lightning rod was clearly brought onto NBC's sci-fi remake to generate controversy - and ratings - but he sucks the life out of every scene. As Antonio Pope, the trainer/guru of Jaime Sommers (Michelle Ryan, who's no party herself), he's adopted a too-cool-for-school acting style, mumbling his lines and only coming to life when he's kicking somebody's ass. Washington needs to take a cue from his
cast mate Katee Sackhoff and amp up his energy level several notches. He should be better, stronger... and less boring.
