The Six Million Dollar Man: Danny's Inferno

episode number: season 4, episode 16 (1977)
viewing setting: home DVD, 7/10/12

episode synopsis: Steve helps a genius kid who accidentally invents a powerful thermal energy source and then lets it get stolen from him by a corrupt official.

impressions: Entertaining. The idea of accidentally discovering something really useful and powerful is always thrilling. The kid was a bit naive, and the guy who stole the sample was really naive (the bad guy should have just taken the sample and pushed the other guy of the roof.)

notable guest stars: None who rung a bell for me.

significant bionic antics: Steve rips open a welded door, spots a guy driving away and chases him down, jumps on top of a moving vehicle, snaps a chain, hurls a brick, pushes a car door open hard enough to knock a bad guy away, bends an iron bar, jumps off a building with a passenger, and kicks a burning-hot bomb away.
