The Six Million Dollar Man: Nightmare in the Sky
episode number: season 4, episode 2 (1976)
viewing setting: home DVD, 5/20/12
episode synopsis: Steve helps pilot Kelly Wood after she manages to lose an experimental plane she was flying.
impressions: This episode was horrible. The bad guys invented some great technology and used it in a ludicrous way, reminding me of that old Superfriends episode in which the Legion of Doom actually shifted the orbit of the Earth in order to rob a bank. That was preposterous and so was this episode. Not to mention that a person who blanks out and can't remember landing a plane...could not have landed it.
notable guest stars: Lee Majors' wife at the time, Farrah-Fawcett Majors, makes yet another return, reprising her female-astronaut role from an earlier episode. Donald Moffat, tall actor who usually plays bad guys, was the evil scientist here.
significant bionic antics: Steve uses his eye to spot a plane from a great distance. Honestly, I can't remember any other bionic feats besides that.
