The Six Million Dollar Man is a TV show about a cyborg working for a US secret service called OSI. The show is based on the book Cyborg from Martin Caidin, and first aired in 1973.

The background story of the show is the plane crash of astronaut Steve Austin, in which he is severly injured. In a title-giving operation that costs six million dollars, his right arm, both legs and the left eye are replaced by bionic (cybernetic) implats that enhance his strength, speed and senses far above human norm. He now uses his abilities to work for the OSI (Office of Scientific Intelligence) as a secret agent (and as a guinea pig).

Main characters

  • Steve Austin, the title-giving character (played by Lee Majors)
  • Oscar Goldman, the president of the OSI (played by Richard Anderson)
  • Dr. Rudy Wells, Austin's physician (played by ???)
  • "Jaime Sommers", the bionic woman, played by Lindsay Wagner

Spare parts

  • A 20.1:1 zoom lens in the left eye.
  • Bionic legs allow him to run at more than 67 mph.

There were two spinoff shows later, the seven million dollar woman and a show about a bionic dog which I never saw, so I don't remember the title...
