Not just a female version of Steve Austin.
When this premiered, I resisted watching it. I thought it was a lame attempt to generate more money from the Six Million Dollar Man. I was wrong. After I saw a couple of episodes I changed my mind. Lindsay Wagner is a tremendous actress who draws the viewers into her character (Jaime Sommers) and the story at hand.
Many shows with a high profile technology character tend to lean heavily on special effects to drive the show. The Bionic Woman is different. There is warmth and charisma in the main character that keeps the show going from episode to episode with or without the special effects. The technological part of the show is a bonus.
Now 30 years later, my wife and I still have fond memories of the show. That you, Lindsay Wagner, for giving us such a quality series to enjoy.moreless
Great BIONIC fun!
a friend of mine told me about this show and the six million dollar man, so I had to check them out. Wow he was right, I bought the first season of Bionic woman because at the time it wasn't rerunning anywhere and I got hooked!! I became a big fan of both shows and eventually got to meet our heroes at DragonCon 2013!
Lindsay Wagner is an excelente actress. Beautifull, nice, charismatic, and amanzing interpreter of Jamie Sommers. And I like the couple with Lee Majors. I had a great moments in my teenager, and I always remember it.
When I started to see The Bionic Woman, I waited the episode each week. I didn't lose any episode. And I didn't move in front of TV. One of the razons, the actress who's playing the principal roll: Lindsay Wagner. Excellent interpretation!!!! Very good actors and histories. Some episodes were amazing!!! I prefered Doomsday is tomorrow (I & II), Jamies's mother (very emotions), Deadly Ringer (I & II)(I think was the best interpretation of Lindsay how The Bionic Woman), Max, the bionic dog, and the last episode, On the run :( There was chemestry in the trio: Jamie-Oscar-Rudy, and I like Lee Majors how he was guest actor. They were a nice couple. It's nice to remember, when past 30 years and I found fans of the tv.show, around the world (I live in Argentina)moreless
The only female superhero worth her salt
From saving the world from destruction to saving her friends’ reputations, Jamie Sommers – middle school teacher and sometime agent for Uncle Sam – covers every mission with style, substance and sweetness. Gentle even with the bad guys and sexy without pushing bad taste, she’s also real as can be, since she was never a comic book character. Relive a less complicated time and return to what’s best in all of us with this fantastic program. It’s great fun with life-affirming messages to boot, The Bionic Woman belongs at the top of anybody’s list of superheroes, male or female.moreless
This was a great show
I remember watching this show when I was a little girl. It was a great show! It would be wonderful if they brought it back. There just aren't shows on tv like the Bionic Woman and the Six Million Dollar Man. It was one of the few shows that I wanted to watch. My brother and I would pretend to be Steve and Jamie...and go out and run and jump over stuff! It was great. Life was much better when I could sit and watch shows like these! I hate that my own children don't have quality shows like these to watch!moreless
Most spin-off shows must be viewed with caution as they are usually pale imitations of their predecessors. The Bionic Woman was not one of them.
The beautiful Lindsay Wagner played bionic woman Jamie Sommers. She was joined by Richard Anderson as Oscar Goldman and Martin E. Brooks as Dr. Rudy Wells. She worked for the OSI agency (it's amazing how in the 60's and 70's there were so many government agencies fighting evil on the small screen). Jamie had had an airplane accident and she was rebuilt. She was given bionic legs, a bionic arm and a bionic ear (no doubt used for listening to gossip).
Like most shows of that era, The Bionic Woman was fun as Jamie Sommers fought all sorts of threats from Bigfoot to Fembots to aliens and also a few more down to earth threats as well. I really loved the theme tune and the action sequences to this show. The acting was great on the part of the three leads and the show had a mixture of stories from comedy episodes to dark episodes. Popping in from time to time was Steve Austin (not the WWF/WWE star but the Six Million Dollar Man played by Lee Majors).
All in all, a great show which is better than it has ever been given credit for.moreless
Jaime Sommers - my hero.
I was a big fan of Six Million Dollar Man (my brother had the action figure) when it was on... when Bionic Woman came on I was an even bigger fan. Jaime Sommers was my hero. I guess one day I could be like her. I don't have any bionic parts yet. And I have not been able to rip a phone book in half yet (which of course was my most favorite scene in the whole tv series). She was such a good roll model for young girls or even women. And of course I always had that secret dream that Jaime Sommers and Steve Austin would get married.moreless
Starring Lindsay Wagner as Jamie Sommers. A retired pro tennis player turned Californian middle school teacher experiences a parachute failure and the accident renders her a tomato. The government takes the opportunity to turn her into a government project and replaces her most damaged limbs and parts of the body with bionic machinery and parts... making her an all powerful crime fighting machine with super strength and hearing. Her signature was her jumping... over small buildings, walls, cars, she cleared them with no problem. Yeah... her running was cool too.moreless
I grew up loving this show, and recently bought the DVDs (*not* actual retail DVDs from the studio, so don't get your knickers in a knot) and have watched all the episodes and all three reunion movies again - and wow ... just as good as I remember it being, particularly the first two seasons ... it's unfortunate that season three leaves so much to be desired, but overall, it's better than a lot of other shows, particularly because of it's emotional depth, which you don't normally find in most sci-fi/fantasy shows. And I gotta tell you - having all three seasons on DVD rocks ... I've been watching the show non-stop for the past two weeks ... :)moreless
