The Six Million Dollar Man: The Most Dangerous Enemy
episode number: season 4, episode 4 (1976)
viewing setting: home DVD, 6/3/12
episode synopsis: Steve accompanies Rudy to a remote island to find out why the government lost contact with a primate research facility.
impressions: This one was good. The various monkeys received an experimental serum which not only boosts their strength, but also drives them insane and eventually kills them. And one bites Rudy, infecting him - which was the main gist of this episode's action.
notable guest stars: Actress Ina Balin plays the primate researcher working on the island.
significant bionic antics: Steve jumps over a small crevasse, fights a super-strong monkey, ignores a monkey bite since it got him in a bionic leg, deflects a blow with a club, dodges a fuel can, chases both a money and Rudy, and breaks free of some ropes.
