To appreciate the lure of The Bionic Woman: The Complete First Season you have to appreciate the appeal of Charles Kingsfield’s daughter, “Paper Chase” twentysomething Lindsay Wagner, all 5’10” of her, in tennis togs. The fact that her bionic alter ego, Jaime Sommers, could lift tractors and leap into trees was just gravy. (Come to think of it, doesn’t Lindsay Wagner kind of remind us of “Wipeout” host Jill Wagner?) Jaime’s first season was only a half-season, but the first-season set feels very full thanks to the inclusion of no fewer than four “Six Million Dollar Man” episodes introducing TV’s original drool-worthy girl cyborg. Series bigwig Kenneth Johnson provides commentary on the first two “Six Million Dollar Man” episodes, and there’s a two-minute gag reel and 24-minute “Bionic Beginnings” featurette on disc three featuring Wagner and Richard Anderson (Oscar Goldman), Martin E. Brooks (Rudy Oppenheimer) and Johnson. Learn that an episode of “Rockford Files” put Wagner on the producers’ radar. Learn Jaime got her name from a young Ohio water-skier. Be reminded that “Six Million Dollar Man” was briefly TV’s number-one show.
