The Six Million Dollar Man: The Return of the Bionic Woman (part 1)

episode number: season 3, episode 1 (1975)
viewing setting: home DVD, 3/3/11

episode synopsis: While recuperating from a mission, Steve learns that his supposedly-dead fiancee is still alive.

impressions: Poor Steve. I feel for the guy - he lived his entire adult life so far without her, found her, got engaged, lost her, and now he finds her again and she doesn't remember him. Worse, she's falling in love with her doctor and thinks of Steve as a big brother. It's a tough situation, and Lee Majors does a good job acting for it. This is part one of a two-parter, since it remains to be seen whether Jaime will get her memory of Steve back or not.

notable guest star: Lindsay Wagner is Jaime Sommers, Steve's amnesiac bionic ex-fiancee.

significant bionic antics: Not much - mostly running and swimming, also some jumping and metal bar bending. Steve uses his eye to spot things, and Jaime uses her ear to hear things (though you'd think she'd have eavesdropped a bit to learn more about what was going on.)
