ABOUT THE SERIES

       Jaime Sommers is an agent for the Office of Strategic Intelligence.
       When we first meet her, she not only is not an agent yet, it would not be at all surprising to find she had never hears of that secret government intelligence agency. Most people have not and she has quite a few other interests to occupy her. First and foremost is being one of the five top ranked tennis players in the world which understandably keeps her quite busy traveling to tournaments all over the world.
       She is also a former close friend, and to a degree almost a former girl friend of Steve Austin. They grew up together in the small town in the Mid-West, she being three years younger. Then Austin moved away to college and the Air Force and she followed her dream of playing professionally.
     Their lives would reconnect when he returned home to buy a farm as a place to get away from his hectic work with the OSI and happened to run into her as she was home for a visit as well. They rekindled their friendship and as a couple of weeks passed, they grew closer than ever.
     It was during a sky-diving jump they took for fun that her life would change forever. An errant parachute accident caused her to nearly die from catastrophic injuries. Her prognosis was dire until Austin appealed to Oscar Goldman, head of the OSI, to give her the same sort of bionic reconstruction he had received.
     Her legs and right arm were replaced as was one of her ears. This would give her the ability to run at impressive speeds and leap sizeable distances. Her grip can be quite lethal when she needs it and her hearing is remarkable.
     The same sort of deal that was reached with Austin to provide services to the OSI in 'repayment' for his enhancements is given Sommers and she would become the second of that organization's bionic agents.

REGULAR CAST

     From 1973 to 1978, The Six Million Dollar Man starring Lee Majors as  Colonel Steve Austin was a hit with viewers. In an episode of the original show near the end of the second season (March 1975) they introduced a love interest of Austin in the form of Jaime Sommers. When she is near death from a skydiving accident, Steve implored Oscar to save her life by turning her bionic. At first it seemed successful but then her body rejected the new items and she sadly died. Thus goes most love interests of major characters in television!
     But not so fast! The two-part episode did so well and the character was so popular that the producers saw a way to capitalize on the success, namely a spin-off. Naturally, it was going to be a bit tricky since the character involved had just died but this was television and it was also science fiction so to paraphrase Monty Python, 'she got better!'
     It seemed that she had been placed in cryogenics deep freeze to preserve her body until a method to counteract the rejection could be found. Luckily it was and in the start of the 1976 season, another two-parter was shown in which she is back to full strength but with just no memory of her past love for Austin.
     Now, however, she is alive and well and able to assist the OSI as another bionic agent. For three years (58 episodes) she worked as the Bionic Woman. She would return later in three made-for-TV movies with Steve Austin in 1987, 1989, and 1994.
     The role of Jaime Sommers was played by the talented actress Lindsay Wagner.

"An analysis of the 1970s Television Series"

MY COMMENTS

     I was stationed overseas when this show first ran so I only watched a episode or two now and then years later. I needed to remedy that for this write-up and I was pleased to say that even so many years afterwards, the shows are fun to watch. Certainly Lindsay Wagner is fun to watch.     
     I regrettably have little good to say about these books. As with the Steve Austin books taken from the television episodes, they suffer from being novelizations and therefore add little to the storyline. The writing is simple at best, though not bad by any means.
       Since the series is long gone, reading these might be mildly entertaining but I would recommend it only to those who crave nostalgia and even to them I would just suggest TVLand.
       The trouble with the books is they lack the attractiveness that was the lovely Lindsay Wagner and therefore do not have her spark.
