Storyline

In this TV spinoff of "The Six Million Dollar Man", tennis pro Jamie Sommers was almost killed in a skydiving accident, but was saved by the U.S. Government, which used bionic parts to save her. Both legs, one arm, and one ear are artificial, which give her a number of super powers. She works as an agent for the Office of Scientific Investigations battling spies, fembots, mad scientists and aliens. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

Trivia

Max, the bionic dog, was played by several German Shepherds. For example, in Season 3, Episodes 1 and 2, "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 »

Jaime Sommers - a row model for powerful women
5 February 2005 | by gillian_1See all my reviews

Even now, from over 20 years distance from "the bionic woman" - she is still quite an example for women heroines in the entire Television history. She is beautiful, witty, brave and non-compromising - a lot thanks to Lindsay Wagner which performed her roll in such an elegant way. Jaime was one of the first women in television, to be shown as more then just another pretty face - at first, as a sidekick for the six million dollars man but soon enough, in behalf of herself. To bad the series didn't last longer - there was a lot of potential - the series combined both action and drama, and even humor now and then. Jaime always encountered intriguing and complex situations, and always handled them very well. All and all, I think that what made Jaime so special was the fact that bionic or not - she was human, very human and emotional but one of a strong character.
