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

The First Pilot Episode and the two other pilots included before Regular Series Episodes started production provide the introduction to this great series. The actual first pilot episode details his accident and reconstruction to bionics. While well acted and an excellent story, you really do notice the missing "Bionic" sound effects that were so essential to the show. This is most evident during his clumsy and laborious first attempt to use bionics to save a little boy trapped in a car about to blow up... The original Intelligence Organization Leader in this one was one Oliver Spencer, played by Darren McGavin who does a really great job as a crusty leader. The Spencer character would rather have a robot than a part man/part machine agent because of Steve's human emotions getting in the way of total efficiency. It would have been really interesting to see these two characters develop their relationship over time but D. McGavin (who seemed to be filming his "Kolchak-Night Stalker" Series around the same time)was apparently only along for the first pilot. The same goes for the first of the three Doctor Rudy Wells, ably played this first time by Martin Balsam.
The Second Pilot is really nothing like the eventual series at all and this is entitled "Wine Women and War".Read more ›
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.Read more ›
