I missed the announcement last week, but according to TV Shows on DVD, Universal has confirmed that the first season of the original Bionic Woman series from 1976 will be released on DVD on October 19, 2010.
A convoluted rights battle kept Universal from releasing both this series and its progenitor, The Six Million Dollar Man, on home video for years, but apparently it's all been cleared up now. This means that the Seventies' two most popular science fiction series will soon be on their way.
In addition, there will be at a retrospective featurette and an audio commentary by producer Kenneth Johnson on at least one episode.
Universal still hasn't given a release date for The Six Million Dollar Man DVDs, and there are rumors that the discs will be issued as one of those Time-Life exclusives - which sucks, frankly, because while I can usually manage to buy shows one reasonably-priced season at a time, I never have enough cash on hand to buy one of those "complete series" sets.
I was a fan of both shows as a kid, and I'm looking forward to the DVDs (providing I'll be able to afford to get them). I saw a few episodes on the Sci-Fi Channel back in the 90s, and although they were a little dated, I still enjoyed watching them.
