the best from season one
22 May 2012 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

I don't review all episodes from series but this one stands out of season one due a few reasons. First of all Steve Austin goes back into space. Secondly, his powers fail in space and finally he has to play together with his wife Farrah Fawcett.

This has so much to offer. When America's first female astronaut Major Kelly Wood (Farrah Fawcett) goes on her maiden trip into space things go wrong. Being trained by Steve Austin he is listening what is wrong. So he decides to go on a rescue mission to safe the astronaut he has trained. Once we go into space this episode is full of footage from real missions and it works out completely. But here Steve get in trouble by seeing that his body doesn't stand the radiation out in space. This episode even got some suspense. Naturally Steve got the girl at the end...

It is really weird that when Farrah died in 2009 due cancer she wasn't noticed at the Oscars. A perfect example of a star from the seventies being forgotten nowadays. Just watch her beauty once again in this episode.
