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

The tubular rear bumper that Max is grasping visibly turns back and forth as the dog pulls on it, clearly showing that the tube is just a fake bumper that is not even rigidly fastened to the car. See more »

Jaime discovers that she and Steve are not the only ones that are bionic!
20 February 2011 | by planetchristopherSee 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.
