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 unforeseen 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)

Terrible Series
11 August 2009 | by MAWasleySee all my reviews

Sorry,terrible series, not patch off the Six Million Dollar Man. I bought the DVD's for my grand children and even they didn't like it. The bionic woman is just a comic book series created by Universal Studies - she was never mentioned in the Martin Caidin novels. By and large I think it is the fault of the actress Lindsay Wagner- she lacks sparkle. A better actress for the role would have been the late Farrah Fawcett of if she had been of age at the time, Sandra Bullock. Both had that sparkle with a touch of mischievousness. My grand children call her "Miss Goody Two Shoes with a touch of bossiness". A bit of a whiner as well. Also amnesia or not, if the gorgeous Steve Austin had told me I was his fiancée, I certainly would not have argued.

There is only one bionic person and that is the athletic Steve Austin played to perfection by Lee Majors.
