    I love to hate this episode.

    This took place when Female Wrestling was all the rage in America. It has to be the worst of all the Bionic Woman episodes. Bad acting, horrible story and terrible writing, It's so bad it's good.!!!
  • Jaime as a lady wrestler has good action sequences but no plot.

    Fun but silly episode finds Jaime going undercover as a lady wrestler! Wagner is dead-on with her performance here -- unlike later in the season when her weariness with the part is readily apparent. The plot is incidental, but guest turns by Norman Fell and Marcia Lewis are appealing and add to the fun. Of course, Fell went on to his most prominent role as landlord Roper on "Three's Company" shortly after this episode aired. Good action sequences keep the audience involved in spite of the weakness of the script. It's too bad that the writers started to treat the series with such disrespect. This week Jaime will be a nun, next week a country singer, then a croupier, then a cop, etc. rather than actually creating compelling storylines that would advance the character of Jaime Sommers and challenge Wagner as an actress. This said, there are several future episodes that do rise above the rest, but not enough to sustain viewer interest or Wagner's interest.moreless
