The Six Million Dollar Man: The Complete Collection – DVD Box Set Review

There’s so much awesome stuff here it’s hard to know where to begin. Hours and hours of classic TV entertainment, specials, featurettes and more are included in this great box set of The Six Million Dollar Man (1974–1978) starring Lee Majors. Fans of the show know what to expect, but for those not in the know opening the box the set come in delivers the basic premise of the series:

“Steve Austin. Astronaut. A man barely alive. We can rebuild him. We have the technology. We can make him better than he was. Better. Stronger. Faster.”

And so begins Steve Austin’s journey as the bionic-enhanced Six Million Dollar Man, which led to the spin-off series The Bionic Woman in 1976. For fans of sci-fi shows and classic TV series, this definitive set is a must-have.

One of the main reasons the show is so fun to watch are the cool special effects used throughout the series. There are plenty of great action sequences and stunts, and plenty of classic moments with Steve Austin switches into “bionic mode.” But that’s not all you get.
