Parts still working: Lindsay Wagner's odometer moves to 59

TV125-1 lindsay1

Still crush-able, TV's original Bionic Woman, Lindsay Wagner, jogs to the 59 year mark on Sunday, June 22nd.

Her show, spun from The Six Million Dollar Man, ran just a season and a half on ABC before NBC picked it up for year. That's still a marathon compared to last fall's new version on NBC, which lasted for just half of a strike-pocked season before the Peacock canceled it.

Here's pristine video from the very leisurely opening to the show's first season (1976). Theme songs and set-ups were an integral part of the prime-time terrain back then.
