Injured astronaut Steve Austin gains amazing powers to battle crime after receiving experimental limbs in this cult series, which inspired a wave of superhero shows in the 1970s. The ABC adventure originated as a trio of TV-movies in 1973, before joining the weekly schedule in January 1974. `The Six Million Dollar Man' spawned the equally successful `Bionic Woman' with Lindsay Wagner as Steve's female counterpart and sometime love interest. The cyborg couple appeared in three reunion flicks.

If you've ever seen someone run in slow motion while saying ching-ching-ching-ching...this is that show! This was the best Hollywood could do at the time and it's fun to see how much of the science they made up actually works and a lot of it is on our smartphones. Good plots, good characters, lots of action, this show is an all-time classic.
