The Six Million Dollar Man: Nuclear Alert

episode number: season 2, episode 1 (1974)
viewing setting: home DVD, 1/19/11

episode synopsis: Some bad guys are putting together an atomic bomb for the highest bidder, so Steve accopanies the final part to flush out the bad guys.

impressions: Yet another episode with a jumbo jet, though at least this time some real action happens aboard it. The part at the beginning with all the foreigners bidding on the bomb was funny, as was the ease with which someone can physically walk into Oscar's office. Oh, and add at least one more person to the list of people who know Steve's special.

notable guest star: Weird-looking actor Sig Haig, before he looked quite so weird, was one of the minor bad guys.

significant bionic antics: Steve peels open a truck's metal wall, puts it back so no one notices, later outruns the same truck, kicks down a door, breaks free of handcuffs, kicks open a plane's door at altitude, and lifts a really heavy piece of metal.
