Storyline

Colonel Steve Austin, astronaut and test pilot, is badly injured when he crashes while testing an experimental aircraft. A covert government agency (OSI) is willing to pay for special prosthetics to replace the eye, arm and both legs he lost in the crash. Highly advanced technology (Bionics) built into them will make him faster, stronger and better than normal. In return they want him to become a covert agent for the OSI. It will cost $6,000,000 to rebuild Steve Austin. Written by Brian W Martz <B.Martz@Genie.com>

One of the Greatest Series
4 May 2003 | by (East Brunswick, NJ) – See all my reviews

I was always a very scientific boy by nature from a very young age. I studied & understood everything about science. Won awards for it. I loved Star Trek, Space 1999, Battlestar Galactica, Nova, In Search Of, Jacques Cousteau, etc. Anything scientific. This show fit perfectly into this collection. One of the most compelling things I will always remember is the music in the opening credits...that military drum beat march, the crackle of mission control radio communications, the sound of the breakaway from the test plane where you learn what's really going on, the drama & rising tension of the music as the capsule malfunctions and the pilot loses his battle for control, it still gets me all fired up to this day! The opening credits and music to that show is one of the most intense I've ever seen. The other day I saw this TV commercial, it was for a national ISP, where they used a really cheapo thin sounding imitation of the music from the Six Million Dollar Man. To me it was an outrage! It made me so mad because it was so weak, that I had to stop what I was doing and go out onto the Internet and find not just the music but an MPEG video of the actual opening credits with the original music. I proceeded to watch it over an over again for about an hour. It still gives me a thrill and brought back so many memories of my youth! I wound up harassing my poor patient wife for about a half hour with a lecture on how important this show was to my upbringing & psychology. The positive "Can Do" attitude of Oscar Goldman and the OSI, the science and the men who put Steve Austin back together again! The computer schematics of all his mechanical parts. The surgery room and lights. The testing. "Gentleman, we can rebuild him, better than he was before. Better, Stronger, Faster." (!!) These are words to live by! It was like I was 8 years old again! Needless to say, I love this show.
