Storyline

Steve Austin happens by chance to reunite with, Jamie Sommers, his childhood love who is now a tennis pro. Their relationship is renewed and things look bright for the both of them. However, that soon changes when the pair go skydiving and Jamie suffers a serious accident that permanently cripples most of her limbs and an ear. Desperately, Steve Austin begs his boss, Oscar Goldman, to equip Jamie with the same bionic implants he himself received. Goldman agrees and has Jamie outfitted with two legs, a right arm and an artificial ear. Now Jamie must come to terms with the fact she now can function normally, but the implants also give her incredible strength and speed while her ear can detect nearly any sound regardless of distance, volume or frequency. Unfortunately, there are unforseen consequences as well to this boon that place her in the kind of danger from which there seems to be no escape. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@rogers.com>

Bionic "Love Story"
15 January 2002 | by (tulsa, oklahoma) – See all my reviews

This movie introduces Lindsay Wagner as Jaime Sommers, a tennis pro who was a childhood friend of Steve Austin, the world's first bionic man (and government agent). Jaime and Steve meet again in the old hometown, and begin to rekindle their relationship. Unfortunately, a skydiving accident causes Jaime to lose her arm, her legs, and the hearing in one of her ears. Steve talks Oscar Goldman, his boss, into allowing the team that made his bionic replacement parts work on Jaime, in return for her services as an agent alongside Steve. Well, the legs work (she can run 60 mph-- in wedgies too!), the arm works (no tennis balls are safe around her!), and, for a while, her ear can pick up twisted nursery rhymes with no side effects. But then her body starts to reject the bionic transplants, right in the middle of a mission against the "Onassis of Crime." Can anything be done to save her?

Originally a two-part episode of "The Six Million Dollar Man," "The Bionic Woman" was extremely popular, mostly because of the charm and realism of Lindsay Wagner and her rapport with Lee Majors, who is much more subtle and powerful here, especially near the end. Alan Oppenheimer (no stranger to robots, being one of the mechanics in "Westworld") is memorable as Rudy Wells, and Dana Plato can be seen as an adoring Sommers fan. This is the only "Six Million" or "Bionic" episode available in the United States, showing the two leads at their best, and a perfect supporting cast. It will only make you want to be able to buy the whole series. If only we could.
