When the series changed networks from ABC to NBC for its final season, Richard Anderson and Martin E. Brooks became the first actors in history to play the same characters on two different television series on two different networks, as they continued to appear in The Six Million Dollar Man (1974), which remained on ABC.

Even though I was a huge fan of "The Six Million Dollar Man", I was also a fan of this show. The main thing I liked about the series was that while Steve Austin was more or less a comic book character come to life, Jaimie Sommers was more of a real person. Jaimie had more of a private life and she still had time to enjoy that life. Also, you could see she was more vulnerable and was not afraid to show her softer side. You could also see that she had her self doubts about her job, which also made her a more endearing characacter. Also, this had some more comic elements to it and that's what helped to distinguish it from the show from which it was spun off from.
