Industrialist Carlton Harris has discovered Jaime's bionic powers and arranges several secret ""tests"" so that he can film her in action. When Oscar realises what is happening, he arranges a ""falling out"" with Jaime so that she can go to work for Carlt
If you've ever seen someone run in slow motion while saying ching-ching-ching-ching...this is that show! This was the best Hollywood could do at the time and it's fun to see how much of the science they made up actually works and a lot of it is on our smartphones. Good plots, good characters, lots of action, this show is an all-time classic.
The character of Jaime Sommers 1st appears in a 2-part episode of The Six Million Dollar Man in 1975 titled "The Bionic Woman", playing tennis player Jaime Sommers, who becomes critically injured during a skydiving accident. Jaime's life is saved by Oscar Goldman (Richard Anderson) and Dr. Rudy Wells (Martin E. Brooks) with bionic surgical implants similar to those of The Six Million Dollar Man Steve Austin (Lee Majors). Through the use of cybernetic implants, known as bionics, Jaime is gifted with an amplified bionic ear which allows her to hear at low volumes and at different frequencies from most humans and over uncommonly long distances. She also has extraordinary strength in her bionic right arm and in both legs that enables her to run at speeds exceeding 60 miles per hour. I didn't like as much as The Six Million Dollar Man.
