She can jump to the top of high buildings, single-handedly battle vicious thugs, run down high-speed vehicles and hear top-secret codes. She’s The Bionic Woman… and she’s back for more thrilling adventures in the gripping second season. With only brief interactions with her former love, Six Million Dollar Man Steve Austin (Lee Majors), Jaime Sommers (Lindsay Wagner in her Primetime Emmy® Award-winning role) is on her own to test the limits of her incredible state-of-the-art bionic limbs. But with the secretive Office of Scientific Investigations (OSI) sending her on increasingly dangerous and deadly covert missions, will she survive long enough to realize her full potential as the world’s first female cyborg? It’s non-stop action and excitement as Jaime battles enemy foreign agents, hostile extraterrestrials, and the fan-favorite fembots in 24 extraordinary episodes – including two crossover episodes with The Six Million Dollar Man!

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.
Guest-stars in season 2 include Stephanie Powers, Sandy Duncan, John Saxon, Vincent Price, and Julie Newmar. This is a 5 disc set with english subtitles and english mono sound.
This was the season Lindsay won her much deserved Emmy as Oustanding Actress in a Drama Series for the two-part episode "Deady Ringer". Her competition that year was Angie Dickinson for "Police Woman", "Michael leaned ("The Waltons"), Sada Thompson for "Family", and Kate Jackson ("Charlie's Angels").

UPDATE: JULY 1, 2011: Fans have been complaining (and rightly so) that the episode "Deadly Ringer" has poor audio quality. This was due to the fact that Universal couldn't find a proper master tape for that particular show (remember these episodes are over 30 years old). Now, fans can rejoice in knowing the studio has found another master tape and has corrected the problem. For fans not satisfied with disc 4 that contains "Deadly Ringer" they can contact Universal for a replacement disc by emailing them at USHE.ConsumerRelations@bydeluxe.com or by phoning 888-882-5779.
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.
Ultimately, "Kill Oscar" is what propels this season over the top for me, even though "The Return of Bigfoot" with its big space alien sci-fi themes is also up there. Anyway, K.I.T.T. had K.A.R.R. The shipwrecked crew had Gilligan. Jamie Sommers had the Fembots. I remember watching the three-part "Kill Oscar" as a kid and being scared silly by the creepy, creepy robot women, and that fear was stoked higher when even Jaime's vaunted bionic strength barely had her holding her own. And then how could you not love her teaming up with Colonel Steve Austin? Lee Majors and Lindsay Wagner together ignited some serious sparks. And damn Jaime's amnesia anyway.
Bonus features: "Bionic Blast" - cast & crew reflect about the show's popularity and impact on pop culture and reminisce about stuff like the Fembots and the action figures; audio commentaries on 4 episodes: "Road to Nashville" and "Biofeedback" (with Lindsay Wagner), "Doomsday is Tomorrow, Parts 1 & 2" (with show creator Kenneth Johnson); and a photo gallery.
Great chuckles involve dropped pots overhead "welcoming" unsuspecting new arrivals ... and the heirs taking their best shots breaking into the "burglar-proof" safe. Better yet, I like how the heirs agree upon "ground rules" for searching Carstairs Manor for the hidden family fortune ... and then each heir quickly ignores those "rules." Their subsequent treasure hunt (with the prize guaranteed to the clan's "smartest" member) inevitably takes some ominous turns. Suffice to say, Lindsay Wagner's performance is spot-on spoofing the kind of macabre horror-mystery films that Vincent Price is legendary for.
No blood, G-rated violence - great, amusing fun for adults and kids alike.
Rating: 5/5 stars. It's every heir for themselves!
