Bionic Alert: This is One of the Best
1 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a kid in the 1970's, I loved "The Six Million Dollar Man." I actually recall very few episodes. I just remember Steve Austin and his slow motion running as a major part of my childhood. In late 2009, I knew I wanted to get the series. I spent two years (2010-2011) reading reviews and taking note of which episodes were identified by reviewers as the best.

Finally, at the end of 2011, I got the box set as a Christmas present for myself. I started watching in January. I saw "Straight on 'till Morning" in June, and I was amazed. In the forty or fifty reviews I'd read, I never heard anybody identify "Straight on 'till Morning" as one of the best.

I'm here to say it's the third-best, behind "Population: Zero" and "Day of the Robot." I am on Season Three right now, but I can't imagine this not being in the Top 5 when I'm finished with the whole series. This rates 10 stars out of 10.

If you watch only a few episodes, then make sure one of them is "Straight on 'till Morning." It's weird. It's science fiction. It involves strange beings from elsewhere, "elsewhere" meaning some place other than Planet Earth. Guest star Meg Foster is superb as Minonee, one of those strange beings from elsewhere. Lee Majors turns in one of his best performances as Colonel Steve Austin. Richard Anderson is excellent in his supporting role as Steve's boss, Oscar Goldman. Goldman has to choose between compassion and what his superiors have ordered.

"Straight on 'till Morning" is about communication and compassion. You don't have to believe in strange beings from elsewhere to appreciate this episode. I don't believe in them, but I do think they're material for good fiction. This is the third-best installment of the series, behind "Population: Zero" and "Day of the Robot."

Yes, it's that good.
