Unusual Story, Quality Cast, Great Sets, Outstanding Music: A Knockout!
15 July 2011 | by See all my reviews

Perhaps less dated than many other episodes of this series as Big Brother does not centre on a very-1970s spy mission but rather on Steve giving a helping hand to a 16 year old boy (played by an actor in his mid-20s?) who has lost his way in life. Granted, the closing 60 seconds is a little hard to take when watched in the cynical 2000s, but if viewed as a product of 1976, Big Brother is a fine example of 1970s television that contains sets that reflect an even older age.

The Six Million Dollar Man is a Universal series but the street sets look like MGM sets used in many episodes of The Twilight Zone (1959-64) series and many other productions as well? But I think those MGM sets were destroyed in the 1970s? So this does not make total sense? Perhaps a fan could clue me in here.

On top of the above mentioned features is a fine music score playing over the hour. The music seems refreshingly different to the music used in the first two seasons of TSMDM. Note the music played when Steve first meets the kid and when Steve runs after him...the music is stealing the show here! In a nutshell, Big Brother is a knockout hour, with a good Batman-and-Robin-ish fight scene at the end, a scene once again helped by the Universal or MGM set it is filmed in.
