The Bionic Woman - Watch Now!

I don't know how long the show has been there or how I missed it debuting on the site, but Hulu now has the entire first season of The Bionic Woman!

No, it isn't that misguided remake from a few years ago, this is the genuine 70s classic starring the wonderful Lindsay Wagner. I was such a big fan of both The Six-Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman. Big part of my childhood.

And they even let you embed them!

Here are the first episodes, the two-part Welcome Home, Jaime:

How awesome is that???

Those episodes first aired on January 14 and 21, 1976! Wow, time flies!

What strikes me as surprising is the slow pace of the show. They really took time to set up Jaime's new life in Ojai, her recovery from multiple surgeries and the loss of parts of her memory, specifically in regards to Steve Austin, The Six-Million Dollar Man. Lee Majors even makes a couple of appearances on the show.

Very cool. Has been 30 years, at least, since I last watched these, but I am loving them just the same. Hope you do, too!


  1. I had a bad case of the hots for her for years.

  2. AArrrrrrrggghhhhh!!!!!! Curse you Hulu and your anti-Canadianism. This was one of my favourite childhood shows. I don't know why they won't release it on DVD. Or allow Hulu to be seen in Canada. }:(

  3. that is awesome! i love old TV shows...LOTL...Buck rogers...gotta check this out.

  4. wow! Hulu keeps proving it's better than real TV over and over. thanks for the head's up. my sister will probably watch the entire run in about 3 days.

  5. If there is one thing that will destroy the relationship between Canada and the USA it is this stupid restriction Hulu puts on showing their programming in Canada. RISE UP MY US BROTHERS RISE UP!!

  6. Thanks for the heads-up - I loved Bionic Woman back in the day! Why this and Six Million Dollar Man haven't been released to DVD yet is a total mystery to me.

  7. I always secretly wanted to know if "other" parts of her were bionic...

  8. Very nice, but also a tease, since my friggin graphics card is out on the computer and my screen looks terrible. Hope it stays on long enough for me to get it fixed!
