The Six Million Dollar Man: Just a Matter of Time
episode number: season 5, episode 13 (1978)
viewing setting: home DVD, 8/7/12
episode synopsis: While returning from a space mission, Steve finds himself six years in the future.
impressions: I can't spoil the cause of the time-shift, or the way Steve gets out of it, but this episode had me for a while. Also of note: a "scrambler" which can knock people or machines out, and the disembodied tv monitor effect, in which people have a perfect, constantly-moving view as if a camera was following their target around.
notable guest stars: John DeLancie was an Army guard.
significant bionic antics: Steve drags his space capsule up the beach, knocks three guys away with one punch, causes a needle to bend as a doctor tries to inject him, and bends some cell bars.
