Disc News: More Bionic Woman springs in May

Jaime Sommers only wanted to be a simple teacher, but fate complicated things. Nearly half her body replaced with robot parts after a parachuting accident. Thus she became the Bionic Woman. Her insurance didn’t cover the experimental surgery. She had to pay the bill by working for OSI, a secret government agency. The show was an instant hit along with The Six Million Dollar Man. The Bionic Woman: Season 2 arrives on May 17. This is the middle of the three seasons that ran in the ’70s. Along with the 22 episodes, the boxset contains two crossover episodes of The Six Million Dollar Man when she teams up with Steve Austin (Lee Majors) to battle Bigfoot and the Fembots. Here’s the press release from Universal Studios Home Entertainment:

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Feb. 2011 – She can jump to the top of high buildings, single-handedly battle vicious thugs, run down high-speed vehicles and hear top-secret codes. Primetime Emmy Award-winner Lindsay Wagner is Jaime Sommers, The Bionic Woman, and she’s back for more thrilling adventures in the gripping second season. Now the world’s first female cyborg is on her own to test the limits of her incredible state-of-the-art bionic limbs on increasingly dangerous and deadly covert missions.
