Goofs

When Steve tackles the armed villain by diving across the table at him, the gun plainly gets flung behind the villain and lands on the floor behind his chair. Yet in the next shot, the villain's lady-assistant stoops to pick up the gun which is now on the floor in front of the chair. See more »

Overstuffed episode
7 March 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Had it been pared down to a single episode of the series, the Solid Gold Kidnapping would be passable, but as a full movie it leaves a lot to be desired. There is a large amount of obvious stock footage from many sources and a plot with no surprises or suspense.

On the plus side, guest star John Vernon makes a very good villain, the evil organization is interesting although a bit glossed over, and they do attempt to discuss the philosophical implications of bionics in a way that isn't quite as silly as you'd expect.

All in all, though, it's missable. If you're a big fan of the Six Million Dollar Man, you still might want to see it after you've seen the rest of the series and it's TV movies but don't set your expectations too high. This is just an average episode with enough extra filler to make it 90 minutes long.
