The Six Million Dollar Man: The Song and Dance Spy
episode number: season 3, episode 4 (1975)
viewing setting: home DVD, 3/9/11
episode synopsis: A popular singer (and old friend of Steve's) is suspected of being a spy, so Oscar sends Steve to one of the guy's concerts to gather evidence.
impressions: Pretty entertaining episode with some action and some plot twists, and a couple of short songs too. At one point, Steve gets left behind on Guam, so he takes an Air Force jet and catches up with the main group.
notable guest star: Sonny Bono plays the singer. Veteran TV and movie actor Bruce Glover (who played a Russian army officer in one of the early episodes) is the main bad guy here. Susie Coelho, who apparently was one of Sonny's wives in real life, is a backup singer here.
significant bionic antics: Steve lifts one end of a car, stops a heavy crate that's falling on him, fends off multiple attackers two different times, and jumps on top of a building as opposed to just breaking down the door.
