  • Season 3 Episode 25: Bionic Ever After?

  • Crew are visible in reflections off both the NEC's truck and their protective faceplates.

  • Season 3 Episode 24: Bionic Showdown

  • Oscar states that Steve and Jaime, along with Michael Austin and Kate Mason, comprise the sole four bionic humans. This would indicate that Barney Hiller ("The Seven Million Dollar Man") and Andy Sheffield ("The Bionic Boy") have both passed away.

  • Season 3 Episode 23: The Return of the Six Mil...

  • Lee Majors II's character of Jim Castillian comments how he'd love to have a father just like Steve Austin, played by his real-life father, Lee Majors.

  • Season 3 Episode 21: Rancho Outcast

  • When Jaime and "The Weasel" are on the road to the small town of thieves and bandits, their tires are shot out by a roadside Bandito who insists that he be the one to take them into town. When "The Weasel" protests, pointing out that it'll be difficult since they now have four flat tires, the Bandito exclaims, "No problem," and they cut to a scene in which two large oxen are pulling the Jeep. Problem is, there's no advantage to using the oxen. After all, it's the tires that are damaged; the oxen would only replace the engine, but it works fine.

  • In the opening scene, Jaime meets "The Weasel." Throughout their conversation, Max is heard growling in the background, presumably because he "senses" something bad about him. As the guy starts to explain why he doesn't want to go back to prison, Max is shown in the background laying completely still on the couch, but the growling sound continues. This sound effect was obviously added in later.

  • Season 3 Episode 20: Long Live the King

  • In the first assassination attempt, Jaime uses her bionic ear to detect an odd sound eminating from the telephone the King is using. After distracting the King, she discretely removes the device from the receiver and crushes it with her bionic thumb. We are later told it was an explosive device. Problem is, most explosive devices would explode from pressure the same as any other method of detonation.

  • During the aforementioned scene, Jaime distracts the King from her doings with the telephone explosive by asking him to check the list of stores to see if he "has a preference." Oddly, when the Kings turns around (after conveniently walking away so that Jaime can do her stuff with the explosive), he says nothing of any preference of stores, and simply praises her for an earlier idea of having the items brought to his apartment. This omission makes the distraction ploy seem even more artificial.

  • Mostada's second assassination attempt against the King involves shooting him, and his hired assassin, Sharokah, "cleverly" utilizes the old gun-in-the-camera trick. Almost comically, they use an old 19th Century, Marx Brothers-style camera, complete with black cloth shroud. Moreover, Mostada complains that the gun will be found during inspection of the camera, but seems unconcerned that the inspection might also reveal that the camera is completely hollow execept for a metal gun holder placed securely inside.

  • Just before the second failed assassination attempt, Jaime overhears Kia and Sharokah discussing secreting the gun into the camera to shoot the King. Once foiled, however, Jaime only turns over Sharokah to Mostada, even though she clearly heard Kia plotting the King's death along with him. Even if she suspected Mostada was somehow involved, there's no reason for her to omit the information about Kia's part in it.

  • In one of many attempts to get romantic with Jaime, Sam tells her that the addressing of the invitations to the King's reception will take them so late into the night that it will be too late upon finishing to go out to dinner. Problem is, they're in New York, NY, the city the never sleeps, where there are hundreds of restaurants open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! In New York, there's no such thing as "too late to have dinner."

  • Wally, the collections goon who's pressuring Sam to pay up on his gambling debt, is played by an actor with what appears to be one of the most obvious sets of hair plugs in television history. The goofiest part of it is that there's only a small, thin row right above his forehead, making the baldness elsewhere look brilliantly noticeable.

  • Season 3 Episode 19: Out of Body

  • While Jaime is handcuffed to "Rosebud," the doomsday bomb created by Dr Jennings, he warns her not to try and pull loose because the machine is very sensitive, and "the least pressure" will cause it to blow up. Problem is, when Jennings' thugs are removing the machine from the lab, they roll it over a rough spot on the floor, tossel it around, and maneuver it with complete disregard. Why wouldn't it explode then, or during shipment to the remote location?

  • In the opening scene, Jaime slips into the lab to pry Tommy away from his work so they can go out together, as planned. Jaime starts to take off his lab jacket while he's sitting and facing away. The next shot is Tommy suddenly standing and facing Jaime, wearing a blue windbreaker jacket, and Jaime is adjusting the lapels for him, with no break in the conversation they're having.

  • Season 3 Episode 18: Which One Is Jaime?

  • Toward the end, Jaime is being held at gunpoint by Burns, one of Stratton's goons. When he gets distracted and looks away, Jaime takes the opportunity to knock him into the chainlink fencing next to them and begin wrapping him up in it. The problem is, although her first efforts are done with her (bionic) right arm, she begins the wrapping with her (biological) left arm! In her defense, the "whack" Burns received is what breaks the fencing loose, but she'd still need bionic strength to begin spinning him into it...AND, they continue the familiar bionic sound effect as she briefly uses her left arm!

  • In order to get free from their bonds, Jaime and Callahan coax Max into jumping through a wire grate on the back door. Rather than sneaking quietly out the same back door after being freed, Jaime chooses to kick down the front door, knocking down the guard, but allowing him to alert the others to their escape via walkie-talkie.

  • When the two goons load their rifles, they make a big deal of showing that they're using tranquilizer darts with red fuzzies on the end. Later, when they miss Max and hit a wooden pole, it makes a red paint splatter instead.

  • When Max begins chewing through the bars on the window, he bends the first one to the right. They cut to a shot of Callahan cheering him on, and when they come back to Max, the bar is miraculously bent to the left! Max continues with a second bar, and bends it to the right as well.

  • Season 3 Episode 17: Deadly Music

  • In the underwater scenes Jaime and the other divers are heard talking as if by radio, however when their faces are shown, their mouths are wrapped firmly around the scuba breathing apparatus. They definitely would not be able to talk.

  • Jaime and the other divers are supposed to be over 250 feet down. Although there are lights on the PTC, the underwater scenes seem to be lit by sunlight. No light could penetrate that deep into the ocean, so they're obviously diving in much shallower waters.

  • In the first underwater sequence, we are, once again, presented with a "magic camera" that shows us numerous angles, one after the other, with no hint of having repositioned itself.
