  • Very few Bionic Woman episodes comes close.

    Lindsay Wagner is amazing playing both her regular character, Jaime Sommers, and her doppleganger, Lisa Galloway. Her scenery chewing meltdown in her padded cell won her a well deserved Emmy Award in 1978 - a history setting first award ever won by an actress in a sci-fi series. (I haven't been able to find anything in the Emmy archives to indicate if anyone else has won for a sci-fi series since). Initially a very difficult episode for me to watch again, it has now become my favourite. This is really edge-of-your-seat stuff. And those dreaded words that everyone hates to see in any TV episode - "To Be Continued" - come at such an exciting moment, I just about screamed again when I saw them. Definitely worth watching again and again.
