Jamie Somers, the "Bionic Woman" introduced on a 1975 episode of TV's Six Million Dollar Man, launched her own series with a two-part adventure. Part One was telecast as the January 11, 1976 installment of Six Million Dollar Man: in a comatose state, Jamie, the onetime fiancee of "bionic man" Steve Austin (Lee Majors), is rescued by emergency brain surgery. Retaining no memory of her relationship with Austin, Jamie starts a new life as a California schoolteacher. In Part Two, which served as the January 14, 1976 premiere of The Bionic Woman, we learn that Jamie, like Steve has been outfitted with electronic replacements for certain vital appendages: her legs, her right arm, her right ear. Moonlighting as a government agent, Jamie infiltrates the headquarters of evil businessman Dennis Patrick, who hopes to exploit her bionic accoutrements for his own nefarious purposes. In syndication, the two halves of the first Bionic Woman adventure were melded into one 2-hour TV movie.
