Trivia

The toddler's waving the colorful bouquet as the VW Beetle is rolling down the street "under gravity power alone" is obviously a humorous reference to the then-popular hippie-term "flower power" that was often emblazoned on the sides of VW vehicles, indicating the occupants' strong advocation of research into alternative/environmentally-responsible energy sources.

Goofs

When Jaime first meets her young mother friend and toddler, the VW's passenger door is closed, then in the scenes where the child is waving the flowers at Max, the door is open, and then after the girl kicks the gearshift and the car starts to roll, the door is closed again. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Rudy Wells: What gives you the right, the unmitigated gall to jeopardize a top secret project like that? Do you know what could have happened?
Jaime Sommers: [about Max] He's all right, I can prove it.
Dr. Rudy Wells: How? Look at him: he can't even raise his head, let alone run bionically.

Jaime discovers that she and Steve are not the only ones that are bionic!
20 February 2011 | by (Isle of Wight) – See all my reviews

For a season three opener I thought this was a great two-part story!

Lindsay Wagner is on fine form as ever and the story has something for everyone. Nice to see the season three theme slightly revamped and the incidental music pacey; I particularly enjoyed the musical contributions from Robert Prince with his 'Friends' song.

Also lovely to see supporting cast featured as well as the introduction of a bionic dog!

Some great action sequences and clever stunts and it's a credit to all concerned for making something that could have looked not so good to a first class piece of television, mixing science fiction with an everyday situation.
