This is a must have for retro tv fans or Bionic/Smdm fans. The picture quality is absolutely beautiful. I was a little sad that they didn't include the three reunion movies in the special features, but luckily they are included them in the SMDM collection as well as 14 hours of other special features, which is available at Time Life for a much cheaper price than amazon.
Good luck retro fans!
As far as the show goes, it's a lot dumber and cheaper than I remember. But I think people who grew up on it, and loved it as a child or teen, will enjoy it today. I don't think newcomers will like it that much. But that's true of many shows, I suppose.
Some of the dialog and incidents I still remember, some 35 years later. It's interesting how much cheaper the show looks in retrospect. For instance, in one episode Jamie is in East Germany. She's being chased by a helicopter, firing machine guns at her. No guns are visible in the helicopter, but then we cut to a scene inside the copter, and it's obviously Vietnam War footage. You can see the rice paddies underneath the machine gun. We cut back to Jamie's car, and again, no guns are visible in the copter. And no rice paddies on the ground -- just what looks like southern California. Who'd of thought that East Germany had California like terrain, with rice paddies to boot!
There are tons of cheap mistakes and fakeries like that, but that's no big deal. The show is still stupid fun, much like the original Star Trek. You don't watch a show like The Bionic Woman for realism.
My big complaint is the shoddy DVD manufacturing. The "Long Live the King" episode on Disc 5 keeps freezing and skipping. I'm using a new DVD player (less than a month old), I cleaned it, I cleaned the DVD, yet it still freezes and skips.
Hollywood always says, hey, no big deal. Just exchange it. But it's been a while since I bought it. I don't buy a TV series and then quickly watch every episode to check for mistakes. I watch an episode every now and then. By the time I get to Disc 5, it's been a while since I bought it.
I'm also disappointed the studio felt the need to hire a marketer to do FAKE reviews. There are many FAKE 5-star "reviews" for this DVD. You can spot them. They're usually just ONE WORD or a HANDFUL of words. They say nothing much about the product. And when you click to learn about the reviewer, you'll find that they posted 20 to 60 5-star "reviews" all on the same day.
Craigslist is full of ads seeking fake reviewers for Amazon and Yelp. I've also spotted a ton of fake reviews for Bates Motel and American Horror Story. Amazon should do a better job policing these fake reviewers.
Bottom line, The Bionic Woman is good stupid fun, with a dose of warm nostalgia, for people who grew up with this show. Lindsay Wagner is lovely. But DAMN I wish manufacturers did a better job at the factory. These shows aren't cheap, and a DVD shouldn't freeze and skip the first time you watch it.
