* {{Novelization}}: Two volumes of novelizations were published (credited to different authors in the US and UK). One was based on the "Welcome Home, Jaime" two-parter, the other combined two other episodes as one narrative. An unusual aspect of these books is they included a detailed description of Jaime's bionic rebuild, however the text was taken mostly from the ''[[TheSixMillionDollarMan Six Million Dollar Man]]'' novelizations. As a result, in one case Jaime is described as having a bionic eye!

* TheCastShowoff: Lindsay Wagner shows off her singing abilities in at least two episodes, one in which she sings "Feelings" while infiltrating a beauty pageant a la ''Film/MissCongeniality'' and later when she pretends to be a country singer.
** Averted in that, while Jaime is supposed to be a world-class tennis player, Wagner is not.



* DidNotGettheGirl: Numerous episodes imply that Oscar is in love with Jaime (a fact confirmed by WordOfGod years later), yet in the series her heart remains with Steve Austin, then Chris Williams, then with Steve again in the reunion movies, culminating in their long-delayed marriage.

A couple of reunion movies were made in the 1990's. In the 1990s and 2000s there were occasional rumors of new film or TV versions of the series, including a made-for-cable series that would have starred Jennifer Anison as Jaime and an InNameOnly reimagining in which the title was going to be simply a ''metaphor'' and the lead character would have no powers at all! Eventually, a [[Series/BionicWoman short-lived remake]] appeared on NBC in 2007. And in 2012 a DarkerAndEdgier comic book version (featuring a Jaime who is not averse to breaking necks when threatened) was launched, though this will be replaced in the summer of 2014 with a ''Bionic Woman Season 4'' comic more closely based on the TV series.

* ComicBookAdaptation: Charlton Comics put out a short-lived adaptation concurrent with the series; in the 2010s a reimagined version also appeared. In 2014, Dynamic Comics launched ''The Six Million Dollar Man Season 6'', a direct continuation of the TV series. Jaime debuted in the 3rd issue and Dynamite will launch ''The Bionic Woman Season 4'' in the summer of 2014. In the UK, the magazine ''Look-In'' published a weekly comic strip titled ''Bionic Action'' in the 1970s that featured both Steve and Jaime. In the mid-1990s a new US comic book series titled ''Bionix'' was announced, again to feature both Steve and Jaime, but it was cancelled despite being promoted in various magazines, though a few pages of sample art were published.

* YouCanNeverLeave: The final episode of the original series has Jaime resigning from the OSI, but in a storyline inspired by {{The Prisoner}}, the OSI tries to capture her and send her to a retirement facility instead. Although [[spoiler: Oscar ultimately decides not to]], it creates a rift between Jaime and Oscar that is not healed until the TV movies.
