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.
