Tv Season Info

Injured astronaut Steve Austin gains amazing powers to battle crime after receiving experimental limbs in this cult series, which inspired a wave of superhero shows in the 1970s. The ABC adventure originated as a trio of TV-movies in 1973, before joining the weekly schedule in January 1974. `The Six Million Dollar Man' spawned the equally successful `Bionic Woman' with Lindsay Wagner as Steve's female counterpart and sometime love interest. The cyborg couple appeared in three reunion flicks.

Critic Reviews for The Six Million Dollar Man: Season 1

So yes, this show is kid-driven. Still, there were some interesting complexities that continue to give the show some resonance.

The episodes varied in scenarios, covering everything from arms dealers and earthquakes to characters with ESP and aliens! Compared to this, series like The A-Team were one trick ponies.

For 70s kitsch, it ranks second to none, and while we can no longer take it as seriously as it clearly takes itself, that doesn't mean it lacks in entertainment value.

Sure, it has a certain quirky awkwardness common to television production of the time - sometimes stilted acting, flat photography, endless incidental bongo music - but it's all part of the time capsule.

He was Superman, James Bond and Neil Armstrong all rolled into one, and $6m was an almost incomprehensibly large amount of money: how could anyone not watch this show?

This pilot is one of the only times you'll see Steve questioning authority and/or his role in enforcing the status quo.
