It looks as though Cyborgs: A Bionic Podcast has been doing its best to make up for lost time. A third episode in as many weeks? The second season of The Six Million Dollar Man is in full swing, and hosts John S. Drew and Paul K. Bisson are keeping things moving, and helping them this time around is friend and fellow word-pusher Kevin Lauderdale as they revisit the season’s second episode, “The Pioneers.”
From John’s write-up:
“Oscar sends Steve and Rudy Wells into the woods to recover a downed spacecraft that contains two human test subjects in cryogenics. One of the astronauts gets out before he can be treated properly and roams through the forest like a wild beast. Steve has to stop him before Oscar’s secret experiment gets out to the world at large.”
Originally broadcast on September 20th, 1974, “The Pioneers” is notable for its main guest star, Mike Farrell, who about a year later would take on the role for which he’s likely best known: Captain BJ Hunnicutt, draftee doctor and replacement for Wayne Rogers’ Trapper John McIntyre starting with the fourth season of M*A*S*H. Farrell would continue in that role until M*A*S*H‘s series finale in February 1983.
