Editorial Reviews

Grievously injured in the crash of an experimental aircraft, Colonel Steve Austin’s shattered body is covertly rebuilt via the miracle of modern science known as bionics. Equipped with atomic-powered limbs that make him “better, stronger, faster” than the average mortal, Austin (Lee Majors) can now run at speeds exceeding 60 miles per hour, overturn cars with ease, and spot an encroaching enemy from over a mile away. Under the watchful eye of OSI director Oscar Goldman (Richard Anderson), Steve repays his debt to the taxpayers by taking on perilous missions of a highly classified nature. Season 1 chronicles Steve Austin’s amazing metamorphosis from “a man barely alive” to cyborg to patriotic superspy. Armed with futuristic abilities, Austin is dispatched to do battle with kidnappers, arms smugglers, evil scientists, political assassins, and a diabolical robot—with time enough to spare to counsel a troubled astronaut (William Shatner) and clear his dead father’s name. Relive the thrill of Steve’s first bionic run in this digitally remastered 6-DVD set featuring 13 uncut episodes; all three made-for-TV movies in their original, unedited versions; and over two hours of never-before-seen bonus materials!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Hello Steve Austin" September 11, 2011
Format:DVD
In 1973 ABC debut a television series that would become a pop culture phenomenon of the 1970's, "The Six Million Dollar Man". That series would propel Lee Majors into superstardom, lead to a successful spin-off called "The Bionic Woman", huge merchandising sales with dolls and board games, and become one of the network's biggest prime time hits.

For years "The Six Million Dollar Man" did not see a DVD release due to licensing issues with Universal and its original creators, but in 2010 the entire series was released through "Time-Life". Now, if people couldn't afford the complete box set or couldn't buy directly through "Time-Life" all seasons of "The Six Million Dollar Man" will become available for purchase individually.

On November 29, 2011 season one arrives in stores. This 6 disc collection contains all 13 season one shows, the very first three telefilms that launched the series, and a slew of bonuses including the featurettes "How Science Fiction Is Becoming Science Fact" and "An Iconic Opening: The Six Million Dollar Man Show Never Disappointed", season 1 VIP's: A Celebration of The Six Million Dollar Man Guest Stars, an interview with executive producer Harve Bennett, and Interactive Bonus Feature: "Bionic Breakdown".

The video is Full Frame (1.33:1), the audio is English-Mono, and subtitles are in English SDH.

All three telefilms have been fully restored from their original broadcasts with their original openings and the episodes look impeccable.

The following is a list of the three television films of "The Six Million Dollar Man", all 13 episodes, and their original airdates:

1."The Six Million Dollar Man", March 7, 1973
2 "Wine, Women, and War", October 20, 1973

There are many things American companies do that puzzle me, but this has to be one of the top 5: Why would you (as a company) have a show that is so iconic that people who have never SEEN it would still recognize references to it, and NEVER release it to DVD -- even in the year when you attempt to revive the concept franchise by re-making the spinoff "Bionic Woman"? (I won't even discuss the incomprehensible decisionmaking process that decides to utterly change the entire basis of THAT show...).

When I purchased the first season of The Six Million Dollar Man, I expected it to be a purchase purely for nostalgia. In fact, I was braced to end up being UNABLE to watch the show (I've found it hard, for example, to watch MacGyver or Kung Fu, two other nostalgia favorites of mine).

To my utter surprise, in some ways this is a BETTER show than I remembered. The writing is tight, often clever, and LESS stereotyped than I was prepared for. (For example, the first major appearance by the Soviet Union's forces is not as adversaries!) Oh, there's stereotyping and events-of-convenience galore, but they're worked into the plots which are less simplistic than many of the follow-on TV action-adventure shows, and overall better acted. (The early movies are not entirely consistent with the series -- besides a change in some actors, the nature of Steve's relationship with Goldman and the OSI undergoes a fairly radical shift; for that reason I am focusing here on the actual TV first season rather than the movies)

It's clear that the producers, actors, and writers were still trying to "work into" the overall concept and try to figure out a way of keeping the action and the characters balanced. The actors -- specifically Lee Majors and Richard Anderson -- make it work.

5.0 out of 5 stars flash from the past August 1, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Every year, I get a new DVD for my 9 year old son for our summer road trips. Last year, it was the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew from the 1970's and this year it was season one of The Six Million Dollar Man. Like last year, my kid loved it. It was nostalgic for me and new for him. The more '70s stuff I introduce to my kid, the more he likes it. You forget how slow developing these 70's shows and movies are. I think my kid will be bored and he's not. Weird, considering all the fast moving TV of today's standards. My only knock on this DVD is that it's hard to find and way more expensive than other items similar in nature. Why this is not released everywhere is beyond me. My next purchase, season one of Bionic Woman is $27 compared with Six Million Dolllar Man which was $60.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flesh and Bone Meets Nuclear-Powered Circuitry! May 18, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This show so captured my imagination in the 1970s, and still does, that it embarked me on my lifelong love of science and technology!

Unlike other superheroes, Steven Austin was a mere mortal man, and the bionic limbs and eye that would not only save his life but make him "better, stronger, faster" than before was a technology that seemed possible!

I remember, in my naivete as a 10-year-old kid, asking my dad if I could have the operation that Steve had, even though my limbs and organs functioned relatively perfectly, so that, in my then scrawny frame, I could have and enjoy those bionic powers, and defend myself against bigger kids who were picking on me in school. Of course, my dad's reply was: "It's just a TV show, Mike. That technology doesn't really exist." It was so ironic to hear, on one of the supplemental disc's documentaries, that actor Lee Majors, who played the show's iconic hero, as well as members of the production team, get asked that same question all the time from amputees!

Here we get all three ABC movies of the week, followed by all the season 1 episodes. There's not much I can add to the other excellent reviews here, except to say that it's amusing to hear how the show's opening title montage and theme song went through a major overhaul from TV Movie 3 to Episode One of the series, when Executive Producer Harve Benett, who would later produce many of the Star Trek movies, took over, and felt, as I did, that the series needed a new theme song.
