Storyline

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)

Goofs

Contrary to what Dr. Wells tells Steve, 4000 hertz is definitely not too high a frequency for normal people to hear; it's merely in the mid-upper range of human hearing, like a fairly high "C" on a keyboard. Even "basic" or "bargain" audio graphic equalizers that have just a few separate frequency controls (like five or seven level-adjusters) often have an upper range of at least 16,000 hertz.

Quotes

Helen Elgin: Did Jim leave yet?
Col. Steve Austin: Oh, yeah, I think so.
Helen Elgin: Oh poop! I wanted him to get a couple of men to helm him lift the refridgerator out so I can clean behind it.
Col. Steve Austin: Oh, I can slide it out for ya.

The Bionic Woman pilot episode on DVD and Blu-Ray should happen soon
28 January 2010 | by KevinB12See all my reviews

The Bionic Woman pilot episode from the Six Million Dollar Man is excellent. Even though I have that on video tape or VHS. I think this Bionic Woman pilot episode should not only be on DVD, but on BLU-RAY as well. The DVD and Blu-Ray versions should be digitally remastered in enhanced version and digital sound with new sound effects, just as they did that in the Star Wars Trilogy. Not only that, but also have The Return of the Bionic Woman also on Blu-Ray and DVD. I would suggest that this should happen soon because they did not have that Bionic Woman pilot episode and the Return Of The Bionic Woman on DVD and Blu-Ray. VHS is already done in 2005, So I would suggest that it should happen on DVD and Blue-Ray.
