Bionic Woman was a popular sci-fi TV series that aired on NBC from 1976 to 1978. The show was created by Kenneth Johnson, and it starred Lindsay Wagner as Jaime Sommers, the titular character. Jaime Sommers was a professional tennis player who had a near-fatal skydiving accident. Her injuries were so severe that the government decided to use her as a test subject for an experimental bionic implant surgery. Jaime was given bionic legs, her right arm, and her hearing was enhanced. These implants gave her extraordinary strength, speed, and agility.

Jaime was recruited by the government as a special agent, and she was tasked with completing various missions. Her boss, Oscar Goldman, acted as her handler and was played by Richard Anderson. The character of Oscar was also featured in The Six Million Dollar Man, which was another popular sci-fi series that aired around the same time.

Martin E. Brooks also starred in Bionic Woman as Dr. Rudy Wells, the scientist who developed the bionic technology that was used on Jaime Sommers. Wells was a recurring character in the show and acted as Jaime's mentor and confidante.

Ted Cassidy played the role of Bigfoot, a recurring villain who was introduced in the second season of Bionic Woman. Bigfoot was a Sasquatch-like creature who was also bionically enhanced, and he was used by the enemies of the United States to thwart Jaime's missions.

Bionic Woman was a groundbreaking show at the time because it featured a strong, independent female lead character who was capable of taking care of herself. Jaime was a positive role model for many young girls who had never seen a female hero like her on TV before. Lindsay Wagner is still remembered fondly by fans of the show, and she continues to make appearances at sci-fi conventions and events.

The show was also notable for its special effects, which were groundbreaking for the time. The camera work used to capture Jaime's bionic movements was innovative, and the show won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Achievement in Sound Editing for a Series.

Bionic Woman was cancelled after only three seasons, but it remains a beloved show by fans who still celebrate its legacy today. The show has been rebooted multiple times, but none of the subsequent adaptations have been as successful or memorable as the original.

Overall, Bionic Woman was a classic sci-fi show that broke barriers and paved the way for future female action heroes. The show's outstanding special effects, strong performance by Lindsay Wagner, and iconic characters like Oscar Goldman and Dr. Rudy Wells make it a must-watch for anyone who loves classic sci-fi TV.

Bionic Woman is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (8 episodes). The series first aired on September 26, 2007.
