steel collar man - six million dollar man meets auto-man
24 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie, I think it was a pilot which was never bought. the most memorable moment is when Chuck Connors, he played McCain in the Rifleman T.V. series, goes to the trunk of the car to find a weapon, he takes out a rifle and does a little rifleman thing, clearly reminiscing of the series, then opts for a different gun. Besides that, it did't make any sort of impression. The android was gonna try to make it to Washington DC and convince the senator why he should exist. To make this a series, he would have to walk the whole way.

Why did I search IMDb for this series. My friend messaged that she was finally gonna have surgery on her very young knees then I wrote back, "didn't know bionics could be done for less than six million dollars". Then I remembered, hey, steel collar man, I should search IMDb for that title. Clearly this proves everything show and movie is listed on this database. All hail IMDb ..
