She can dive to the very bottom of the ocean, lift a massive car with one arm, hear the pins of a top-secret safe, and keep up with a pet German shepherd that can run up to 90 mph. The Bionic Woman is back and ready for her most exciting adventures yet in all 22 episodes of the third – and final – season of this groundbreaking show. American sweetheart and Primetime Emmy® Award winner Lindsay Wagner is Jaime Sommers: schoolteacher, concerned Ojai resident and full-time agent for the top-secret Office of Scientific Investigations (OSI). Jaime’s missions have become increasingly more dangerous and complex as she’s earned the respect of her handlers and colleagues. But with new romance on the horizon and emerging bionic technologies, will the world’s first female cyborg choose to live her life away from government interests? Find out in the epic conclusion to the iconic series where one woman took on new abilities and became a role model for a whole generation of fans.
The final season is here! Universal Studios Home Entertainment has officially released THE BIONIC WOMAN Season 3 on DVD! Within one year, Universal has released the entire series of this 1970s classic television series. Season 3 is jam-packed full of Bionic adventure... Jaime meets a new Bionic companion, fights the sexy but creepy Fembots, teams up with Evel Knievel, gets brain washed, goes back to college, is poisoned, protects an alien princess, is guided by a disembodied spirit, and even goes on the run when the government turns on her!
The packaging for this set follows the same template established with the Season 1 and Season 2 releases. Along with the main title image of Lindsay Wagner that is featured on all three season sets, the cover photos also include stuntwoman Rita Egleston hanging from a helicoper on the set of "Fembots In Las Vegas", a screen shot of Richard Anderson from "On The Run" and a composite photo of Lindsay Wagner and 'Max' from "The Bionic Dog". Each of the set's five discs include static menus that utilize the same artwork as the outer packaging.
Along with the season's original 22 episodes, fans will be thrilled to also see the original episode preview teasers that ran at the start of this season's episodes.
The highlights on this set (especially for hardcore fans) come from the incredible bonus features! Disc 1 includes episode commentary by Writer James D. Parriott on "The Bionic Dog", Disc 2 features an episode commentary Podcast on "Brain Wash" by yours truly, Bionic Fan & Collector James Sherrard. Followed by the new Lindsay Wagner Q & A on Disc 3, and ending with episode commentary with Writer Steven E. de Souza on the series final episode, "On The Run".
