Trivia

This is the first episode filmed after Lindsay Wagner was in a car accident with her then boyfriend, Michael Brandon, in the passenger seat. It was reported that the car lost control and hit a tree. she suffered some cuts to her face and scalp, as well as, leaving a permanent scar to her upper lip. Lindsay Wagner did not resort to plastic surgery Which is why her scar is noticeable, especially when the camera filmed close ups to her face when she used her "bionic" ear. Even with a scar, Lindsay Wagner was still a very beautiful woman and it was apparent that this did not affect her acting career. See more »

Goofs

The getaway limo's drive-wheels stop spinning a few seconds after the driver shifts the car into "park". The wheels would have stopped turning instantly with the transmission in "park", and also they would not gradually slow to a stop, as they do here. See more »

Not the queasefest you expect!

It seems that a beauty pageant episode was an obligatory (and regressively queasy) rite of passage for all action heroines in the 70s. But unlike wonder woman's moment in the slime (which was inarguably that show's nadir), the writers here found a way to make jaime's pageant purgatory palatable. Heck, even silly and standout. It starts with jaime's revulsion at the mere thought, and ends with making the pageant bigwigs the baddies, in some computer circuit caper. And somewhere in between, bert parks (THE FRESHMAN, NIGHT OF 100 STARS II) renders one of the most campily silly fight scenes in the history of Hollywood. You'll hit the rewind button several times to see his facial expressions in slow motion. Gary crosby (OPERATION BIKINI, ADAM-12) hits all the right notes too.
