Storyline

After Colonel Steve Austin fails to retrieve the contents of a safe owned by arms dealer Arlen Findletter, he takes up a friendly offer of a vacation in the Bahamas. There, he runs into Soviet Agent Alexi Kaslov and his lovely assistant Katrina Volana, who also happen to be out to find Findletter. Is it a coincidence, or was Steve's trip all part of one of Oscar Goldman's missions? Written by Il Tesoro

Goofs

The scenes of Steve's examination and repairs are obviously just re-used footage of Steve's original bionic surgery; he didn't need his eye bandaged again or the tube in his nose because those parts weren't damaged during his escape from the villain's boat. See more »

Col. Steve Austin: Well nothing that should prove to be of any problem in our relationship

Alternate Versions

Among the extra footage is a brief flashback montage (seen in part 2 when Austin is waking up from being tranquilized) that shows footage from the first TV movie and, because this edit was made later in the show's run, snippets of footage from later seasons. As a result, in part 2 of the re-edited version of 'Wine, Women & War' it is possible to see Martin E. Brooks, who played Dr. Rudy Wells beginning in the second season, Martin Balsam, who played Wells in the first TV movie, and Darren McGavin, who played Oliver Spencer, the character replaced by Oscar Goldman with this film.

Double Entendre Arise!
14 January 2012 | by cwhaskellSee all my reviews

I have never seen The Six Million Dollar Man so am starting from the very beginning: the two introductory pilot movies. They each have a slightly different feel, with this one definitely being the more playful and lighthearted.

Steve Austin's cyborg powers are on display throughout the movie, and the audience is treated to cool abilities like night vision, fast swimming/running, etc. This is provided as expected, but what caught my attention and allowed for some cheese filled chuckles was the funny attempts at double entendre. It feels forced, as if the screenwriters had to seduce the audience and lure them into the chambers of the mind. It felt like a pounding instead as they were usually in inappropriate - plot wise - situations and we are left waiting for the rim shot from the band.

Fun effort all around, makes me excited for the show, I hope future episodes can rise to the occasion!

Rating: 20/40
