The Six Million Dollar Man is an American television series about a former astronaut with bionic implants working for the OSI (which was variously referred to as the Office of Scientific Intelligence, the Office of Scientific Investigation or the Office of Strategic Intelligence). The show is based on the novel Cyborg by Martin Caidin, and during pre-production, that was the proposed title of the series. It aired on the ABC network as a regular series from 1974 to 1978, following three television movies aired in 1973. The title role of Steve Austin was played by Lee Majors, who subsequently became a pop culture icon of the 1970s. A spin-off of the show was produced, The Bionic Woman, as well as several television movies featuring both eponymous characters.

I remember this show!! I loved it and I had the action figures!!! Steve Austin and Oscar Goldman….
Of course $6,000,000 in the 1970′s is about 2.5 BILLION today… I don’t think any insurance company would give the green light for the bionics though…. I wanted the bionic eye!!
