The Six Million Dollar Man: Run, Steve, Run

episode number: season 1, episode 16 (1974)
viewing setting: home DVD, 1/17/11

episode synopsis: Steve thinks someone's after him, so he heads to Utah where his old friend runs a cowboy ranch.

impressions: I guess this is what happens after Steve allows too many people to see him in bionic action: he has to sit and think about who could be after him. This episode had a lot of two things: 1) flashbacks to earlier season one episodes where bad guys knew about his bionics, and 2) horses/riding/cowboy-talk. It also featured the return of (in my opinion) slightly-goofy evil scientist Dr. Dolenz, who for some reason pronounces "robot" as "ro-butt."

notable guest star: Melissa Greene is quite a cowgirl. For some reason, Steve didn't make a move on that.

significant bionic antics: Steve outruns a horse, breaks manacles, bends steel, and outruns a truck.
