In the mid to late 70’s I can vividly remember watching, what was then considered, “awesome TV,” based around Steve Austin and Jaime Sommers. (The bigfoot episodes are still my favorites.)
On October 13th, Universal Studios Home Entertainment is releasing two great collections featuring our favorite bionic heroes:
THE SIX MILLION DOLLAR MAN: THE COMPLETE SERIES – Golden Globe® nominee Lee Majors is “better, stronger, faster” in this incredible 100-episode, collection of the iconic series. Also included are all three pilot movies and three reunion movies. When an aircraft crash leaves him barely alive, Colonel Steve Austin (Majors) is rebuilt with cutting-edge bionic technology. Now, atomic-powered limbs propel him at speeds of 60 mph, giving him the ability to overturn massive objects and take on America’s most nefarious villains and their schemes. Join one of TV Guide’s “24 Greatest Action Heroes” as he tackles top-secret missions that left millions of fans breathless for five thrilling seasons.
THE BIONIC WOMAN: THE COMPLETE SERIES – She can hear things undetectable to the human ear. She can crush steel in one hand. She can run faster than a sports car. She is The Bionic Woman: the world’s first female cyborg… and the role model who inspired an entire generation. Join Primetime Emmy® Award winner Lindsay Wagner in all 58 action-packed episodes from the complete, iconic series. From the early days with her new abilities, to her changing relationship with Steve Austin (The Six Million Dollar Man), to her increasingly dangerous role as a secret agent, Jaime Sommers’ incredible, trailblazing journey is chronicled here, and it remains an indelible chapter in television history.
