Trivia

When Steve Austin has flashback memories of Oscar Goldman's face, the scenes are actually from the episode "The Peeping Blonde" which aired one week after this episode. See more »

Goofs

It seems very unlikely that a former astronaut involved in a serious test flight accident would be so unknown.The notoriety and recognition of astronauts diminished greatly after walking on the moon, but even at the time this series existed astronauts would have been known by someone in that community.

Who Am I?

Steve Austin(Lee Majors) is piloting a plane when he suffers a malfunction in his bionic arm that causes him to eject. After landing, he wanders onto a road, suffering from amnesia, and befriends a woman named Angie Walker(played by Sharon Farrell) who runs an experimental home for older patients who can no longer handle society. Unfortunately, local townspeople led by an evil grocery store owner named Horace(played by Robert Donner) will do anything to force them out, including murder, and it is a race against time if Oscar Goldman(Richard Anderson) can get him the help he needs... Thoughtful and unique episode would have worked just as well on "The Incredible Hulk", with the wandering man/super strength theme.
