"Doomsday Is Tomorrow," is perhaps the finest episode of the original Bionic Woman series; a two-parter that pits its title character against a super computer -- with the fate of the world hanging in the balance. Paying homage to the classic "2001: A Space Odyssey" and the often overlooked, "Colossus: The Forbin Project," "Doomsday" mixes super science with dramatic themes, many of which remain relevant today.
But for all its ambitious inspiration, "Doomsday" is still a small screen production with a small screen budget. It would take a lofty directorial vision, stellar guest cast, and the reliable magic of regular cast and crew to make this two-parter seem bigger than what its screen dimensions could offer. And they succeeded. "Doomsday Is Tomorrow" is powerful and poignant and its message is timeless.
I have always believed it worthy of the big screen. So here is my tribute to "Doomsday Is Tomorrow" -- a contemporary theatrical trailer. But can such a thing truly be done with a 30 year old piece of television? You decide. Based on this trailer, would YOU go to see this in the cinema?
EDITING NOTES: Although I call it a trailer, at 6 minutes it's more of an extended trailer -- much like the sneak previews movie studios release. For music buffs, the main cue used is "Myotis" from BATMAN BEGINS composed by James Newton Howard & Hans Zimmer. Bookending the trailer is music from the actual episode and Bionic Woman main title, by Joe Harnell and Jerry Fielding, respectively.
