(it is balky, but you can click through to watch it on the YouTube site)

Back when I was in elementary school my friend Gene Freeman and I would play “Bionic Man” and leap about the yard, lifting things while making strange noises.  He liked to play Steve Austin and I’d have to be Oscar Goldman, but at least I didn’t have to be a fembot:

And while the physics of the bionic man is less than believable, I did love this show and it fueled my interest in technology and engineering.

For years I’ve been exasperated that I couldn’t relive this aspect of my childhood on DVD.  They finally released Six Million Dollar Man DVDs overseas, but rights issues back here in the states left us with nowhere to go but poor VHS copies on eBay or pirate torrents.

Now they’ve finally got their act together.  And while it won’t cost $6 million, at $250 the full set is rather pricey:



You can finally get every Six Million Dollar Man episode and movie on DVD

  1. Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was super long)
    so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.
