TV Shows - Six Million Dollar Man

The Six Million Dollar Man is an American television series about a fictional cyborg working for the OSI (which was usually said to refer to the Office of Scientific Intelligence, but sometimes was called the Office of Scientific Investigation as well as the Office of Strategic Intelligence[1]). The show was based on the novel Cyborg by Martin Caidin, and during pre-production, that was the proposed title of the series.[2] It aired on the ABC network as a regular series from 1974 to 1978, after following three television movies aired in 1973. The title role of Steve Austin was played by Lee Majors, who subsequently became a pop culture icon of the 1970s. A spin-off of the show was produced called The Bionic Woman.

1 My diet Is great, Anytime When I want to lose weight I put in the Jaime two parter song "Jaime" and we throw Up and in "Every-a-which" direction! That Said,, Lee Majors Is an Amazing Stud. -- Submitted By: (ChrissyM) on July 13, 2013, 3:23 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I had forgotten about Jamie dying; but it doesn't surprise me. After all; any gal romantically associated with a Barkley or Cartwright would be dead at the end of that episode. Back to the show; the one episode that sticks out is one where Steve is helping a beautiful female psychic escape thru the jungle. She is wearing bleach white slacks; falls into quick sand; is rescued by Steve and in the next shot her slacks are back to bleach white. All ends happily as Steve states that he has a "vision" of her going out with him that night. My vote for Boning is the Big Foot episodes. And don't get me going on the subsequent Bionic TV movies. -- Submitted By: (Pete) on July 5, 2013, 12:08 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Parker -- The explanation for the "badness" of the Bionic Woman episodes of "The Six Million Dollar Man" was that when it was originally aired, the episode only had two parts. Jaime died at the end of part 2, and that was that. Then, the executives saw the stellar ratings for that two parter, and decided to make a spin off featuring Jaime. That's why the third part feels awkward -- because the first two parts weren't originally written with it in mind. I'm old enough to remember when this was aired in first run (only the first two parts), and then when it was aired again at the beginning of the next season -- suddenly with a third part that it didn't have the season before! -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on June 27, 2012, 4:23 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I think it boned during the multi-part episode where Jamie Summers is made into The Bionic Woman. The episode itself wasn't so bad, but they had Jamie clinically "die" at the end of Part 2 I believe, and you see a grieving Steve Austin leave the hospital. Then at the beginning of Part 3, a specialist shows up at the 11th hour as the white knight who can "save Jamie", except she already died. OK, people have clinically died and been resucitated before, even in the 1970s, but geez if they were still working on her why is Steve calling "game over" and walking out? Then Steve finds out she's alive by accident when he's injured, goes to the hospital, and only half-concious spots her in recovery.....and this was kept from him until then why? Seems really jokie by today's standards even though this was the ep that spawned The Bionic Woman series. Honorable mention goes to "Special Guest Star....Larry Czonka"(?) -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on June 26, 2012, 11:51 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 I'd forgotten about the singing but the Sasquatch stuff was super cheesy. Even when you suspend disbelief over the basic bionic astronaut premise, bringing in aliens and a giant wrestler in a bad ape suit as a Sasquatch is going too far. -- Submitted By: (baldrick) on May 19, 2010, 9:57 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I thought I had totally blotted the travesty of that song out of my memory. I need CCleaner for my brain! PURGE! PUUUUUURRRRGE!!!!!! -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on April 12, 2010, 7:58 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Yeah, Gordon. After the 'Jaime' song, it was no surprise that she let them fake her death so she wouldn't have to chance having to HEAR it again bionically! If they ever needed a city evacuated quickly before a hurricane, all they'd have to do is have Lee Majors reprise 'Jaime' on a PA system and every hearing person within a 50 mile radius would outrun said hurricane! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on April 3, 2010, 4:08 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 The alien stuff just didn't cut it, neither did that horrible song he sang "Jamie" bleeeechhh! 1st 2 seasons are available in Region 2,4/PAL - check Amazon UK or Aussie retailers. Season 3 was released in Italy and is now hard to find. -- Submitted By: (Gordon_Bennet) on March 28, 2010, 7:42 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I was eight when this show debuted, and for most of its run, it was must-watch TV for me and most of my contemporaries. I've seen it more recently with adult eyes, and I can't believe how cheesy it looks. Nonetheless, I'd love to watch the episodes again on DVD, just to revisit some of those youthful memories. There used to be a lot of SMDM episodes up on Youtube, but there was a purge a few years back that cleared most of them out. And for some reason (owing to a dispute about the rights, I think) the series has never been available on DVD. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on February 22, 2010, 1:48 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Even when I was a kid, I wondered how he could lift cars without breaking every single one of his unbionic vertebrea- and I admit that I'm not so sure I'd have been happy to go through life with a grid atop one eyeball- even with all the cool bionic speed and strength! Well, it helped everyone forget about him being Barbara Stanwyck's stepson on "The Big Valley" so I guess it was good for his career in the longrun. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 22, 2010, 11:25 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 The minute they brought in Sasquatch and the Space Aliens, I slapped my knees, stood up and said "I'm done here." I knew then that I had officially outgrown this show. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on January 15, 2010, 12:03 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Loved how they managed to keep all the same actors & also into the crossover into Bionic Woman. Lee had really honed his skills from Big Valley which I saw 4 the 1st time this year. -- Submitted By: (ChrissyM) on July 9, 2009, 8:28 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
