The Bionic Woman Classic

Show Summary

In 1975 Lindsay Wagner made a guest appearance on The Six Million Dollar Man as a perfect female companion for Steve Austin - Jaime Sommers. After a tragic skydiving accident, Jaime also received bionic replacements. She and Steve planned to be married, but it came to pass that Jaime's body rejected her new limbs and she died.

ABC realized how phenomenally successful Lindsay Wagner's portrayal of Jaime Sommers had become. So, they brought her back to life and spun her off into her own series. It debuted in January 1976 and was an immediate hit. The series ran on ABC for two seasons and was picked up by NBC for its final season. In Spanish the title is known La mujer biónica, though in in regions speaking the Catalan dialect, it is called La dona bionica. In Italy it is called La donna bionica. In Portuguese it is called A Mulher Biônica. In French it is called Super Jaimie. In Germany it is called Die Sieben Millionen Dollar Frau ("The Seven Million Dollar Woman"). In Japan it is called Baionikku Jiemi ("Bionic Jaime").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!
  • GO Jaimie GO!

    Jaimie Sommers took the nation by storm. She was strong, intelligent and natural. Everything that a female had not been on American television. Her episodes and adventures had a generally softer tone and usually had some type moral or lesson attached.
  • 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

    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

    9.9
    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
