Lindsay Wagner stars in this pilot of the spin-off series inspired by "The Six-Million Dollar Man".

Wagoner, the girl friend of "Six-Mill" star Lee Majors, is seriously injured in a skiing accident, and Majors arranges to have her irreparably damaged body parts (one arm, one ear, both legs) replaced with bionic versions.

She goes to work for Richard Anderson ("Forbidden Planet"), head of the Office of Scientific Information.

The special effects mostly consisted of slow-motion shots that were supposed to depict Wagoner moving super-fast (?). But the concept was appealing, the star was attractive, and the action was plentiful enough to gain the show a solid following. Directed by Henry Mankiewicz.

The short-lived reboot of the series in 2007 was extremely well done, and if the writers strike hadn't cut it off at it's bionic knees, it would have run for several years -- or that's what I think, anyway.

Enjoy this fan-made compilation of scenes from the three"fem-bot" episodes (two from "The Bionic Woman" and one from "The Six Million Dollar Man". Lots of familiar faces from 70s television, and several gorgeous ladies — some real and some playing the lady robots. Very Happy

Both incarnations of the Bionic Woman were fun sf tv shows.

A shame the reboot did not last longer.

Katee Sackoff steals every scene she's in.

Minor correction, Bud: There's no "o" in Lindsay Wagner's name. Maybe you're confusing her with Lyle Waggoner?

Wasn't the first part of Welcome Home, Jaime, the pilot for The Bionic Woman TV series, filmed as part of the third Six Million Dollar Man season? Unlike the later crossover shows this one remains with The Bionic Woman I believe these days and has been edited to fit!
