The Six Million Dollar Man: The Moving Mountain
episode number: season 5, episode 21 (1978)
viewing setting: home DVD, 8/25/12
episode synopsis: Steve teams up with a Russian spy to stop European terrorists.
impressions: This was not only "The Spy Who Loved Me" with Steve Austin, but also the last regular episode of this series. It was a spy caper taking place in Chamonix, France and had some political machinations behind the scenes. The Russian agent-chick was fun and believable. Also, Rudy becomes capable of fixing a radio system in this one.
notable guest stars: John Colicos (better known as the traitorous Baltar in "Battlestar Galactica") is a Russian spymaster here.
significant bionic antics: Steve deflects a chunk of falling debris, spots a bad guy waiting in ambush, leaps up a cliff, takes a hit on the leg from a metal bar, opens bullets with his fingers, breaks a horse's bridle, and pushes a tank to block a road.
