The Bionic Woman is a science fiction drama that aired on ABC for two seasons and NBC for one. This show is a spinoff of The Six Million Dollar Man. Its pilot aired both as a two-part episode of The Six Million Dollar Man and as a TV movie before it was picked up as a series. In the pilot, which was part of the The Six Million Dollar Man series, Jaime meets old flame Steve and they rekindle their romance. They decide to go on a day trip skydiving, but it ends in tragedy when Jaime's parachute fails, and she crashes to Earth. Barely alive, Steve's only choice is to beg Oscar to give Jaime the same bionic treatment he had. Jaime is given two legs, an arm and a super sensitive ear, however, Jaime's body rejects the bionics and she dies. After recieving lots of fan mail, the producers decided to resurrect Jaime, and give her a series of her own. In this series she works for the OSI like Steve, but she has a day job as a teacher at Ventura Air Base.
