I just found out that one of my choice TV series has been released to DVD!  I have waited years for this.  5 seasons &  6 movies (3 pre-series and 3 post-series) and all in one set!
If only the set did not cost half of what the man cost!  It’ll take a while to save for this one.  I guess for 5 seasons that’s only $35/season and about $12/movie – the going rate.  But when it’s all bundled like that the price tag is pretty big.
I guess for now I’ll need to feed off YouTube videos like this.  Do you realize how much of pop culture was influenced by this series?  Think about that little AOL guy.  How many times have you heard the theme “We can rebuild him…” repeated and parodied?
It’s not that the show was particularly riddled with sci-fi special effects, it was not.  It wasn’t even particularly believable at the time.  I mean because you have two bionic legs and a bionic arm does that mean you can stand on level ground with no foothold and hold a helicopter down?  The faster Steve ran, the slower things got.  Not the flash-on-the-screen-what-happened of many of today’s action flicks.  No, it was more the slo-mo of Matrix designed to relish each moment.  Steve and Bigfoot, who’d have ever thought they’d be buddies on the same side?  Then there’s the bionic love affair, the bionic dog, the bionic villian.
Will my kids enjoy it?  Not likely.  But there’ll not know what there’re missing out on.
