Holy cow! How long’s it been since I got to do one of these?
We’re here, folks. This is it! The one episode of The Six Million Dollar Man that everybody knows, even if they’ve never seen the show. Some argue that this is where the series “jumped the shark,” but what those people say is unimportant, and we do not hear their words! What are we talking about?
Hosts John S. Drew and Paul K. Bisson bring us yet another scintillating edition of Cyborgs: A Bionic Podcast, continuing their bi-weekly retrospective of The Six Million Dollar Man‘s third season. This installment was just too big to be shouldered by them and a single guest host, so this time John and Paul bring in three–count ’em, three–guests to fill up the roundtable. Along with my nerdy self, we’ve got bionic gurus Joe Burns (webmaster of The Six 1973) and Matt Hankinson (chief creative consultant for Time-Life’s definitive The Six Million Dollar Man DVD collection) on hand as we all discuss the first half of the classic two-part episode, “The Secret of Bigfoot.”
Does this story even need an introduction? Hell no. Steve Austin fights Bigfoot, and finds aliens living in the California mountains. What more do you need? Let’s just get on with it, amirite?
Thanks as always to Paul and John for inviting me back to play. These podcasts are always a gas to do, and you know Part 2 has to be coming soon, right? We actually recorded both parts as one show, and even with Paul’s editing the first part still comes in over 1 hour and 45 minutes. That’s a lot of bionic babbling, right there, y’all. Stay tuned for news about the second part of “The Secret of Bigfoot!”
