There are a slew of bonuses including a new featurette with Lindsay Wagner, Kenneth Johnson, and crew members entitled "Bionic Blast" where they discuss the merchandising of the series, how the stunts were performed, and who their favorite villins were. There are new audio commentaries on select episodes by Lindsay and series creator Johnson. Actress Janice Whitby (who played fembot Katy in the episode "Kill Oscar") has stated she has done some voice over work that will be included as commentary on this set. Finally, there is also a gag reel and photo gallery included.
"The Bionic Woman" continued to enthrall audiences young and old upon its first network broadcast with season 2 finishing a respectful #14 in the national Nielsen Ratings. This would, however, be the series' final year on ABC as the network canned it citing "The Bionic Woman" was not attracting the kind of young demographic it desired. Season 3 was picked up by rival network NBC in the fall of 1977.Read more ›
Some of my favorite episodes take place in Season 2. We get the classic crossover episodes with THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN: "The Return of Bigfoot" and the absolutely awesome "Kill Oscar." In "In This Corner, Jaime Sommer," we eyeball Jaime in her Pocahantas-type costume as she infiltrates a shady lady wrestler club. We even hear her talk wrestling smack during a television interview. "Road to Nashville" showcases Lindsay's singing a country song ("Good To Be Alive in the Country") as she tries to locate a vanished OSI agent. "Black Magic" guest-stars Vincent Price as Jaime is deployed to a remote island and gets caught up in a treasure hunt. The fabulous two-part "Deadly Ringer" features the return of Jamie's doppelganger, Lisa Galloway, who has broken out of prison. Jaime, drugged and mistaken for Lisa, gets thrown in the hoosegow. Lindsay Wagner's riveting performance in this two-parter is said to be what won her the Best Actress Emmy that year.Read more ›
You will need a region 2 dvd player to view this and "Bionic Woman"-Season 2. There is one extra which is a brief montage of other available tv series through Universal Playback. I must warn you before hand though, as there is a creepy anti-piracy advertisement at the end of the last episode of each disc. You'll know what I mean when you see it. I turn it off immediately so I don't have to see it. Other than that, enjoy!
This is not an issue with a small batch of discs, but instead something which originated with the studio -- a problem being discussed like crazy on every bionic internet group, and by now something the studio -- whose consumer relations department has issued a statement about it -- is aware of as well. What Uni Consumer Relations told my fellow fan listserv participant is that they can't do anything about it because these are old shows with less-than-perfect masters! TVShowsOnDVD is also covering this issue, and it's worth noting that all three seasons are available in English with PERFECT audio tracks in non-US releases which can be imported and enjoyed with the right equipment and know-how, though obviously without the much-anticipated special features of this release, which are very good, and will be most welcome once a new pressing is done with all the audio intact.
A few quick words about the program & this season: This is the classic counterpart program to The Six Million Dollar Man, the groundbreaking action/SF series of the '70s based on Martin Caidan's 1972 novel, Cyborg. For those who don't already know, Six Mil creator Kenneth Johnson decided to create a "Bride of Frankenstein" for Col.Read more ›

First off, I loved the series as a kid. I still think Lindsay Wagner is great. But I'm sick of paying a lot of money for DAMAGED DVDs. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Thomas M. Sipos

Oh, thank you! Yes, the original is very bad. The first ten minutes is virtually inaudible. I can't wait for mine to come. Thanks again, it was kind of you to go out of your way to check the disc.
