Storyline

In special two-hour show of "The Six Million Dollar Man", Andy Shefield has been injured in a landslide that also killed his controversial father. OSI chooses the youth to receive atomic/bionic implants that will restore his paralyzed legs. The result is superhuman strength in those legs. Andy immediately uses this new power to do what he can to restore the good name of his father. Once he gets in over his head, Colonel Steve Austin comes to his aid. Written by <keatho@yahoo.com>

Trivia

Vincent Van Patten's (The Bionic Boy) real father Dick came in to play a shoe salesman. See more »

Goofs

Andy had only seen Steve perform bionically just the one time before he first asks him about his bionic limbs, so presumably Andy would have no way of knowing that just Steve's right arm was bionic, and not both arms. See more »

Should have been a spin-off series
22 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When The Bionic Boy screened, I really thought it would be a spin-off series, like the Bionic Woman which starred the beautiful Lindsay Wagner. But not to be, but maybe with the Bionic Woman reboot being shortlived, maybe the producers can reboot the Bionic Boy back on the air.

Here Vincent Van Patten (son of Dick, and nephew of Timothy) stars as Andy Sheffield, the Bionic Boy, and he fulfills every boy's fantasy by being the bionic boy and able to fight for justice and impress the girls with 1000 pound bench presses. But it's shortlived in a way, when the media (again!) exposes his bionic prowess.
