Lady Astronaut
21 May 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Lee Major's real-life wife Farrah Fawcett guest stars as Major Kelly Wood, whom Steve Austin is reluctantly training to make her maiden outer space flight, making her the first woman American astronaut. Despite some friction, they form a grudging respect, and Steve must take quick action when her flight runs into trouble after an unexpected explosion injures her male co-pilot, but Austin discovers that his bionics seem to be malfunctioning in space, leaving Kelly the one to bring them back home... Farrah Fawcett is good here, and clearly well cast, with a smart story and efficient direction making this one of the better early episodes.
