The Bionic Woman Classic

ABC (ended 1978)




  • Season 2 Episode 22: The Night Demon (aka: Dae...

  • When Jaime shows up at Lyle's workshop looking for him, she grabs up a (conveniently available) Geiger counter and starts waving it around the place, checking for signs of radioactivity. She's surprised to see that it reacts most strongly to her shoes, saying "Where'd I pick that up?" Problem is, Jaime's bionic legs are powered by a radioactive power unit that would, no doubt, interfere with any attempt to get an accurate reading of particles on her shoes.

  • Season 2 Episode 21: The DeJon Caper

  • When Beaumont and his goons show up at the museum to switch the forged painting with the real one, they make no attempt to shield the painting (or their own faces!) from view. It's nighttime, but anyone walking by could easily see them walking in with a painting and become suspicious and/or be questioned later by authorities.

  • When Lambert created a diversion at the museum (by throwing a rock through the window), there was no alarm at a museum with priceless paintings! The same is true when Jaime crawled through the window, as well as when she took the painting off the wall.

  • Season 2 Episode 20: Beyond the Call

  • When Colonel Banning reprimands the Air Force security police guard, he addresses him as "Private". Air Force personnel below the rank of sergeant are referred to as "Airman". This is a serious gaffe for a senior Air Force officer.

  • Jaime tells John that they're flying into their wilderness site by chopper because she "has some pretty unpleasant memories of parachutes." This means that some of her memories have come back since the series premiere, where she remembers nothing of the plane she jumped from, or the accident itself. Having said that, the only time in the series it is mentioned that her memories have returned is in the first reunion movie, where a concussion from an explosion jarred her memories.

  • Season 2 Episode 19: Jaime and the King

  • In Monte Carlo, after Jaime bends the table umbrella so that his view of the pretty, bikini-clad girls is blocked, Oscar says to her, "I'm gonna get you for this." His lips, however, say something completely different.

  • Season 2 Episode 18: Deadly Ringer (2)

  • It is revealed that Courtney escaped from prison about a fortnight prior to the events in this story, and nobody told Oscar about it.

  • When Jaime is on the run after escaping from prison, she has a rather nasty encounter with a quicksand bog. She escapes from that, and as one would expect, she's all covered in mire and goop. However, when she starts running again after this, she's miraculously clean again.

  • When Jaime is on the run with the prison guards and hound dogs in tow, she stops off at a fenced in warehouse area to use a phone to call Oscar. When she reaches to pick up the receiver, we can clearly see two small scabs on her right (bionic) hand.

  • Season 2 Episode 17: Deadly Ringer (1)

  • Blooper: In the padded cell, Jaime lands on a drainage grate as she attempts a bionic jump. It breaks in two perfect halves but is shown intact in her hand a moment later.

  • This episode suggests that Jaime's bionic arm has fingerprints, when she urges Warden Cooper to take her fingerprints to prove she is not Lisa.

  • Blooper: The drainage cover that Jaime breaks in the prison strongroom has no drain hole beneath.

  • Blooper: the courtyard that Jaime runs across to escape the prison looks more like a construction yard than a prison courtyard. Trucks, construction works and forklifts can be seen.

  • Two men show up at Jaime's place (a second-story apartment in a 2000 sq ft. structure) and use two small cannisters of gas to force her into unconsciousness. Problems: The cannisters are too small to fill that large a space (especially when she's on the second floor), and the crooks make no attempt to shield themselves from the gas when they enter to kidnap her (no masks, no hands over faces, nothing).

  • Season 2 Episode 16: Doomsday Is Tomorrow (2)

  • In "Fembots in Las Vegas" part 1, it is revealed that the OSI salvaged Alex's monitoring device and stored it in their vault.

  • The inscription on the large stone pedestal in the vault is a quote from Isaiah 2:4 in the Old Testament of the Bible.


  • In this episode it is revealed that Jaime has a fear of snakes (ophidiophobia, also known as ophiophobia).

  • Season 2 Episode 15: Doomsday Is Tomorrow (1)

  • Dimitri reveals that the Soviets have experimented with bionics too, but with less success than the OSI. Their bionic experiments with animals worked, but resulted in two deaths when tried out on humans. So far they have not succeeded in creating a bionic human.

  • Season 2 Episode 14: Biofeedback

  • When Jaime first encounters Darwin in Rudy's lab, she thinks he's dead, but the actor can be seen to swallow.

  • Biofeedback is NOT "raising one's level of awareness to a point where you can focus inside yourself on one specific muscle...and increase, or decrease, its activity." It's actually a scientific fad from the 60s/70s using machines (mostly the oscilloscope) to view or hear involuntary and/or unconscious body processes (such as heart rate, brain waves, etc.), with the goal of learning to control them consciously. It had nothing to do with meditation or monks in Tibet. (Researchers don't use Biofeedback anymore because they found that the same goals could be achieved using meditation, so there's no need for expensive equipment.)
