Anniston to play Jaime Sommers?
Jennifer Anniston is being rumoured to play Jaime Sommers in a big screen version of the Bionic Woman. The rumours appeared in an Australian newspaper. The series holds a place in the star’s heart since she was discouraged from watching tv as a child. Her babysitter let her sneak peaks at the series and she ran around the house making bionic sounds. If offered the role we’re sure that she’d have some interest in accepting.
Six Million Dollar Site relaunch
It’s been a while since our last relaunch. Were still working on this new version of the site so expect some more updates over the month. The episode guide section is still being worked on and we will upload seasons as soon as they are complete.
Six Million Dollar Site exclusive
Universal Playback has confirmed the release of new bionic material over the year, and they plan more DVDs.
October will see the releases of the BW and SMDM DVD’s volume 2. As yet there is no confirmation on episodes to be included but initial rumours are that ‘Day of the Robot’ -originally scheduled to be on the first release- will be one of the episodes.
In November a futher 9 episodes of the SMDM will be releases in box set format on VHS. Again no episodes are confirmed but hopefully they will fill the missing gaps from season one, left by the release of the ‘Classic Collection’.

We hope to have some cover shots for you very soon.
Bionic Woman marathon on SciFi today
The SciFi channel will show a Bionic Woman marathon today between 10:00 and 3:00. Last week’s Six Million Dollar Man marathon was greeted with enthusiasm, however the episodes were butchered and featured pop up slogans during the transmission.
Fans comments on the Egroups mailing list were quite vocal in their opinions regarding the tampering.
Banzai88 wrote ‘Sci-Fi ruined it with their oversized watermark, those stupid polling questions that popped up at the bottom of the screen, and the squeezed credits at the end. Unforgivable’
