Watch Bionic Woman
- 1 Season
The Bionic Woman is an action adventure program that aired for three seasons in the late 1970's. The show started off as a spin-off of the hit show The Six Million Dollar Man. The plots for the two shows are similar. There were several cross over episodes on both series. Richard Anderson appears as Oscar Goldman on both programs. In The Bionic Woman Goldman helps to save the life of Jaime Sommers, a professional tennis player, who was nearly killed in a horrible skydiving accident. He uses robotic implants to fix her injuries and these new components give her super human strengths. She has amplified hearing in one ear and has extra strong legs and arm. She is able to run extremely fast, jump very high and hear conversations that are miles away. The cost of her expensive surgery is that she must user her new bionic powers for a government agency. She is able to infiltrate crime organizations and terrorist and uses her strength to battle much larger opponents. Some of Jaime's most notorious foes included the Fembots. They are a group of female robots that do battle with Jaime. One notable storyline had an evil villain use plastic surgery to look like Jaime in order to infiltrate the government agency. Jaime does have her kryptonite. It is discovered that extremely cold temperatures cause her bionic parts to malfunction. The final episode of the show sent Jaime out with a bang. She decides that she is through with being different and attempts to resign her secret agent job. Her bosses didn't feel comfortable with her going out on her own and attempt to keep tabs on her. She escapes and spends life on the run. Later, after helping a stranger she realizes that her bionics are a gift and she returns to work at the agency.
