That's why the movie version coming out next year is the Six Billion Dollar Man.
I think they used billions when they did that short lived bionic woman show a few years back as well.
I forget which episode in S1, but it was funny when Steve and some woman was in an old-style taxicab, and the driver jammed the gas pedal, jumped out and let the car drive down the road trying to kill them both. Steve was able to stop it using his foot, but then let the car drive itself over a cliff. But the car going over the cliff was a completely different car!
I always liked all the palm trees in Washington DC.
And mountains. Those DC mountains are beautiful.
They could always go back to the original novel's title, "Cyborg".
(No one remembers the Van Damme movie, right?)
Crashing cars cost money and Universal has a big library of car crashes on film.
(There's even an area on the backlot known as "Car Crash Hill".)
Since the target screen was a 13" or smaller, they felt that most people wouldn't notice.
It wasn't an uncommon practice among TV shows. I also saw this in Knight Rider, e.g when they used the car crash from The Car in "Trust Doesn't Rust.
(Universal also got years out of the computer footage from Colossus: The Forbin Project.)
Even as a kid, I recognized the tennis courts that Fred and Steve played on as the ones in Griffith Park.
If I ever sit down and watch the show again, I'll probably be picking out locations like crazy.
I remember that movie, but didn’t realize that was based on the same source as the 6 million dollar man.
It's not based on the Martin Caidin novel.
But it's probably the most well known movie with "Cyborg" in the title.
("Cyborg 2087" and "Cyborg 009" are more obscure.)
They're probably unknowingly paying for the syndicated version, which already has cuts.
(I know I've said this before, but the one case I know of where syndicated versions ended up on DVD was season 1 of Roseanne. I don't know if they ever re-released them uncut.)
The screens were soooo small, that it was hard to see the basketball on TV, though that was mostly because basketball hadn't been invented yet.
Yep. Operation Firefly.
Under Gaffes: The black car that goes off the cliff and explodes is clearly not the same taxicab (a Checker Marathon) from which Steve and Susan just escaped. Furthermore, it doesn't have any taxi markings.
These days, that would barely buy a bionic finger.
It's the Bionic Woman, but I always think of her the rare times anybody mentions Ojai. (Jamie Sommers' hometown.)
Not the one I was referring to...
The Steve/Jamie relationship was the best.....
I actually liked this show (from 12 years ago) and kind of wish that they had kept them on long enough to explore Katee Sackhoff's character.
Thank heavens I haven't eaten yet today.
I just want to know how much the 6 million went to pay the plastic surgeon guy since good old Steve had no surgery scars anywhere and of course could still get it on with the women.
There's supposed to be a couple of Cozi TV stations here in SA, but they don't show up in my antenna scans. Six million is still a lot more money than I have.
