I can't believe no one has started this thread already. Come on, who saw the HoYay! in the bar scene? My friend turned to me and said, "It sounds like she's hitting on her."

Yay for female HoYay. Great job on the thread title, chilindrina!

Corv(in)us actually managed to get a little heat out of Jaime McLamey. That's no mean feat!

ITA, especially after Jaime gave Sarah the free beer. That scene would not have been more LesYay even if Jaime worked at a lesbian bar.

I think they had pretty good chemistry.

Here's to, at some point in the series, we wil find Sarah and Jamie sitting on a couch in front of a bird cage. Jamie starts to cry as she begs, "Make me feel good, make me feel gooood!!"

Maybe being Bionic can be seen as subtext for becoming a lesbian (or realizing you are one). The lame chemistry with Dr. Boyfriend leading to the post-bionic bad, dull sex with Dr. Boyfriend. The enhanced chemistry with the female Sarah post her bionicness. The bar scene. Sarah trying to get Jaime to accept her "bionicness" and Jaime fighting against it. "I'll bury one guy after the next."

I'll have no problem reading into the show this way if it continues down the boring path of the pilot.

Picture this: Sarah is maimed by the Villain of the Week, gets bionics like Jaime, and while they're bonding during rehab...well, you know how these things happen. ;)

Of course it would not make them gay, because they would only do such things with each other.

Jaime: "I am not gay but if Julia Roberts or Angelina Jolie, or may be you Sarah would ask me I would not say no. But I am not GAY"

I'm getting definite Buffy/Faith HoYay vibes. Or Faith/Block o' Wood vibes, anyway. Damn I miss Eliza!

Exactly! Maybe we'll get (if the show lasts) a story of Sarah trying to turn "good" and Jamie helping her out.

Anyway, I hope this second episode is a lot better.

Not one damn scene this episode. Shameful. It does look like we'll be getting plenty of HoYay next week though.

Actually, I think there was a vibe between Jamie and the blond Doctor lady with the very Lesbonic hair-cut. Whatever her name is. During the car ride.

Also, there was SO much potential in the scenes with Jamie and her two girlfriends.

The NBC promos all emphasizing "Will she be her greatest enemy...or her greatest ally?" are really not helping with the lesbionic vibes. Not that I'm complaining. You'd think more shows would utilize a bunch of commercials in which two ostensible enemies stare smolderingly at each other.

Did I dream this or did Jaime actually say to Sarah, "Why do you want me, you psychopathic freak?"

I haven't watched the show yet, but the ads make it look like it should be called Lesbionic Woman. I came here to see if it was HoYay or something more, they were pimped like Jim & Pam or something.

The LesBionic Vibes were off the charts in this episode. I like the dynamic between Sarah/Jamie. Even if there was no HoYay, they make a good team.

Yes, this is definitely the femslashiest show since Xena.

I'm tickled (or confused) that Sarah was in Jaimie's dreams and then J. woke up...and there Sarah was. Smiling at her. It's sweet really.

It had to be spelled out to me in the dialogue that the girl in Sarah's car who died in the crash was, indeed her sister. (And they did so, repeatedly, to the point of me saying, "Yes, OKAY, it's her SISTER!")

But still, y'know, that was NOT my first assumption.

NBCU bought Oxygen today, so maybe the network had even more estrogen pumping through the airwaves tonight.

Word! This show is a complete mess but, damn, it brings some grade A HoYay. I was shocked to find out that the girl in the car was Sarah's sister. Wow, Sarah just gay vibes with everybody. Here's hoping for a Sarah/Ruth scene in the future!

I too thought the girl in Sarah's car was a sister and not the sister.

I'm loving the hoyay - this whole eppy felt like foreplay or some sort of delicious lesbionic courtship. They are starting to give the Petrelli Brothers a run for their money. Heh.

No way was that Sarah's sister!! Because how they played it would be totally incest. And besides, that girl looked nothing like Sarah, and in fact looked a lot like Jamie, which explained the hungry look she was giving Jamie when she was spying on them dancing in the living room. Damn you, Eick, for writing that sister shit! Eick is totally Rob Tapert's protege, the way he had me hoping there for awhile. Bastard.

I completely agree. My exact thoughts when watching this scene were, "The TWOPers were RIGHT!"

Then, I was like, "Wha--? Oh. Huh?" Because that is not at all the vibe I got from that scene.

Oh, man. I am so glad I'm not on crack re: the sister stuff. I watched it and was like "... sister?! Is that supposed to be a metaphor?" I really almost wonder if that scene was first filmed with the intent of the other chick having been a "friend" (read: implied lover), but then they chickened out and switched it to sister only because NBC's not ready for the gratuitous HoYay, yet.

Heh, kind of like how in the dubbed Sailor Moon they made Uranus & Neptune cousins instead of lovers. And then proceeded to beat us over the head with how they are COUSINS! in hopes that we wouldn't notice the smoldering glances and hand-holding.

Maybe the DVD (if BW lasts long enough) will include some deleted scenes...

That scene had to have taken place in a different context before it aired. What sister seriously says, "You don't know me very well, Sarah". Okay it's paraphrased, but still... it's her SISTER, she should know. At least she should, if we're supposed to believe Sarah went nuts (possibly) over her sister's death. That line was just gay, literally. They should have taken it out.

I see that the HoYay was completely absent in this last episode. Too bad. It made the episode much less interesting and Jamie so boringly dull that I considered some self-flagellation to entertain myself while watching. Also too bad that Ruth was acting like she had a stick up her ass.
