The Six Million Dollar Man: The Wolf Boy
episode number: season 3, episode 5 (1975)
viewing setting: home DVD, 3/11/11
episode synopsis: Steve reunites with his friend Kuroda (from a previous episode) to find a mysterious "wolf boy" in a jungle in Japan.
impressions: This one was a little weird...I can't help but wonder if the "wolf boy" was one of those weird 1970s phenomena that I didn't notice. Steve gets to run around in the jungle, solve a mystery, and find the wild kid.
notable guest star: John Fujioka returns as Kuroda, an honorable Japanese soldier. Buddy Foster (older brother of Jodie Foster) is the wolf boy.
significant bionic antics: Steve uses his eye to spot a trap, see at night, and scan a cliff for bad guys. He uses his arm to hurl a trap away, block boulders, pry open another trap, and fight off multiple bad guys.
