God, I Love That Show
All the videos of the original show credits don't allow embedding. So, you get a Sci-Fi Channel promo.
Yeah, the show was sexist as hell, and it steered awfully close to cheese-tastic, but, damn...Steve Austin was the man. I mean, seriously, that's the best "hero name" of all time.
DVD set. I have bootleg set, the the quality is so very, very poor.
I loved that show, and I'm enjoying Dynamite Comics new series, The Bionic Man, based on Kevin Smith's screenplay attempt. Though, why they just didn't negotiate to use the title of the original novel, by Martin Cadin, Cyborg, I'll never know.
I still say this property is so ripe for a big-screen treatment. I hope somebody get ahold of it with more imagination that turning it into a comedy vehicle for Jim Carrey or Chris Rock. This could be a really kick-ass action/adventure/spy thriller.
