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... Just like her friend, Col. Steve Austin. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@wkio.com>

Trivia

The Bionic Dog episodes didn't turn out that bad. Although this is one of the stupidest plots to a tv episode ever. (A robot dog who fights crime??). They're literally lifting plots from Scooby-Doo's Blue Falcon and DynoMut episodes!! See more »

The Bionic Woman ahead of its time...
28 October 2006 | by charlesnapier-1See all my reviews

The Bionic Woman is not just sheer, wonderful fantasy but it also brought us amazing femininity and full-on, '70's glamour...Lindsay Wagner advanced the usually dormant societal awareness of how a beautiful looking woman could also be strong, compassionate, fair and run at 60 mph in high heels! The series is important in that it raises the profile of actually seeing women as something more than just pretty, stay-at-home objects of male desire... In many ways much of its residual effect is only realised after time has passed...

On another level, the series is easy on the eye, full of action and has great music...it is escapism which is translatable to new generations of sci-fi fans...and Ms Wagner... you are so beautiful!!!
