Max, the bionic dog, was actually played by several German Shepherds. For example, in the episodes The Bionic Dog parts 1 and 2, they needed a dog that wasn't afraid of fire, one that would just lay and allow you to pet him, or lay in front of food without being tempted to eat it. They also needed one to get on a treadmill. See more »
Lindsay Wagner enters the pop pantheon of seventies tv divas.
This show (along with Wonder Woman and Charlie's Angels) damaged me for life. As the female counterpart to Steve Austin's six million dollar man she held her own against such horrors as Bigfoot (gave me nightmares as a child) to the evil fembots (ripped off in Austin Powers). This show was a classic in every sense of the word and Wagner never recovered fully from the typecasting that came with the territory.
