The Bionic Page


.

This page is devoted to Lee Majors star of films and the $6,000,000 Man tv series which led to the Bionic Woman spinoff series starring Lindsay Wagner. Both series starred Richard Anderson as their boss (not to be confused with Richard Dean Anderson, the current star of Stargate SG-1 on the Sci Fi Channel). There have even been bionic books. And probably Stargate books for that matter.

NBC is now airing new episodes of Bionic Woman. Here is the schedule of the new episodes being rebroadcast on the Sci-Fi channel:

It all started with The Six Million Dollar Man, based on the novel Cyborg by Martin Caiden. Adapted into a pilot TV movie, The Six Million Dollar Man soon took off as a fully fledged series with ex-astronaut Steve Austin (Lee Majors) using his bionic arm, legs and eye to combat a variety of threats from enemy agents and foreign powers.

Lindsay Wagner guest-starred on The Six Million Dollar Man as Jaime Sommers, Steve Austin's childhood sweetheart and suffers a skydiving accident. The only way to save her is to replace her damaged limbs (and ear!) with bionic parts and she becomes the bionic woman. However, at the end of this two-part show, Jaime's body rejects her bionics and she dies. But such was the popularity of Lindsay Wagner that there was a huge outcry of the audience and the producers were forced to resurrect the character and gave her a series of her own.

Back from the dead, Jaime Sommers follows in Steve Austin's footsteps by using her bionic powers to fight evil - though by this time, enemy agents were increasingly being replaced by alien invaders and mad computers.
